+1 way more boxy. I like the look of the new HFM.

The review units are barely getting out now.  What you're been reading have mainly been the pre-production units...  The baffle has been modified since then.  It'll still be a couple, maybe a few, weeks before reviews get out.

Hmm i would love to hear about the driving capabilities and a few other things before i get these. However i think they will be a good step up from the HE-500's as im sure that's what hifiman main objective. I wonder if it's difficult to drive or the same as the HE-500's. I plan to use the 560's on my DX100 music player ^_^

These headphones seem like they would be a good place to go to from my DT880. I'd have to save up, though! I've always been interested in a planar (like the LCD2) but the heavy weight has always been something I don't think I'd like. I love that these are more reasonable in that department. I wonder how well I could drive them. My NFB 15.32 does great with my DT880 600, has heaps of volatage. Wattage wise, it puts out 3500mw at 25Ohms and 1800mw at 50 Ohms, which makes me think it should put out around 2w at 35 Ohms, which should be enough to make these sound properly fed. Output impedance is 2 ohm which seems low enough, as well. So I think I could upgrade to the HE560 without feeling the need to upgrade my source. 

 

The looks, and promising impressions of the sound and comfort make me very interested in this can!

These are the "new" 500's, but I believe that there is a replacement for the 6 in the works right?

I now have an HE-500 for comparison in this review.  I am still waiting on the final production HE-560 replacement.
