I feel it bests the HE-6 from what I've read. I've yet to read a comparison to the LCD-3 though that thing costs nearly 2 grand. Forget that. http://www.head-fi.org/t/722163/battle-of-the-modern-planars-lcd-x-vs-pm-1-vs-he-560 <<< Bests the LCD-X here. As far as the 007, yeah, I doubt it's technically superior as well. I certainly would never (and have not) gone as far to say as that they are a league above the 007, but yeah, most likely a preference thing there. So, still, to me, best :P

For sure. And I agree about the stitching bit that guy above said. I see that the change was for comfort/accomodation purposes as well as durability. Unfortunately it changed the sound.

This is probably why most manufacturers DON'T listen to head-fiers. Too many opinions and no way of satisfying everyone. Kudos to HF for even tuning in to this crowd.

How many of you posting in this topic recently actually have owned the production 560 or pre-order version, or both?

 

This topic needs to settle down a bit.  Owners of the production 560 have loved it for the most part, and the idea of rereleasing the pre-order pads or better versions of them was brought up as a sole idea to provide additional option possibly down the line based on a combination of subjective impressions and objective information, not to stifle production or create mayhem.

 

This situation is not a mess, current 560 owners are happy with their headphones, people who haven't received the 560 yet shouldn't comment on the 560, Hifiman is a better company for listening to Head-Fi, production of the current 560 isn't going to stop, people shouldn't cancel their orders, people shouldn't overreact and be drama queens, people shouldn't speculate, people shouldn't fill topics talking about how pathetic the situation it is, otherwise you get crap like this.

I would like to hear how the sound of the 560 compares to other similar phones not a pre released product which is not coming back
How is the sound vs 800 other orthos etc

Sorry to disappoint dude, but the general consensus is that the HE-6 is the flagship.

I'll be comparing the hd800 to the 560 some time this upcoming week.

Did you get someone to offer you their 560s Matt?

++1 (from someone who has both preorder and production).

Let's be constructive not destructive comparisons and reviews would be great

Likewise... Owned the HE-6 and still think the 560 will wow me... Thanks to it requiring more modest setups than the 6s as well!

Yes, got an offer. He is supposed to ship today. Will let you know what the comparison is like.

Same. I don't remember where I read it, but there was a review that had a comparison between this and the HE-6.
