I did order the pre-prod pads from head-direct because I couldn't resist trying out the other option.

 

Wish you the best of luck.  Hopefully you'll find something that works out for you :/

Maybe yet another set of pads with a deeper cavity could be made for those of us with ears that stick out.

Ehhh...nah. Enough drama with HE560 revision as is. Sorry bro. You could try the Audeze vegans perhaps?

 

Edit: or maybe mod the focus pads so they are deeper (try the hifiman pleather foam insert rings?).

I am in no way dis-satisfied, these headphones (pads included) rock! :beyersmile:

That might be a good idea :p  LOL.

Perhaps, but I always dread them because they make the earpads less cushy, as they kinda push up and compact the earpad foam. Surely some do not mind that.

They definitely do that.  Also the added clamping force doesn't help either.

Anyway,,,  I'll just relax for the weekend and hope for at least by Tuesday (my birthday)..


I paid for the express, but I think the guarantee means within the US, after that when they hand the package to Canada Post their responsibility ends. At least that is what I think. Given that they haven't hit the border yet and in my case all US parcels go to Quebec to be sorted (WTF is with that?) before they get sent to the Ottawa sorting facility. If all of this is done within the 5 days I will be very surprised. If I remember correctly that is the range for Priority Express International, 3-5 business days. Totally sucks, but we are going to be waiting until mid next week is my best guess.

Well I guess they could argue that Tuesday didn't count so, that should be next Tuesday for the 5 days.  Seems like a stretch considering they haven't even made it to Canada yet... and CBSA... :rolleyes:

 

Oh well... they will arrive eventually..  My CEntrance won't be here until the end of next week anyway... Charlottetown to Victoria, 6051km!!  That's a bit of a tour for the Canadapost ponies...

They just arrived! Letting them burn in with a modified EF-5 amp and Uber Bifrost while I'm at work.

Just make sure you have an amp on tap that delivers the stable current needed, most folks buy an ortho and are under amped!

Mine are here..... anybody else have dents or warps in the grills? Both of mine are bowed, but I have a ripple through the middle of the left side.

Ooo, that sounds like a nice combo. Looking forward to your impressions. I miss my EF-5. I will probably spring for the HE-560 when I get the funds. My choices so far for my next amp are the EF-5 (again), Lyr 2, and Compass 2. Man, I need to get off Head-Fi and go find a job.

Just got mine couple of days ago, first listening impression is really good. I thought I might need to sell them due my financial issues, now I want to keep them and sell my LCD-XC. But they are truly exceptional headphones, and they are really close to my Abyss in terms of SQ. They are so comfortable to wear though.

They are always bowed slightly I find. Well, you might find that the regrilling mod I document is the way to go, as it is by far the most ubiquitous Hifiman-specific mod around here.
