If he's wise he would wait for one (or two, or three) direct PM1 vs HE560 comparative reviews before making purchase decisions.

 

And knowing MLE, he probably wants to read/hear about HE400i more.

Based on his previous assumption!

400i or PM-2, and as of right now I can't afford either.

Looks to be a very good year for planar mag hp's. :biggrin:

The market for this is definitely getting hotter and more competitive. It makes sense since the whole planar magnetic concept was explored to a degree a few decades ago but dropped off prematurely, meaning it is still in an infantile stage of development compared to dynamic / electrostatic transducers.

Going to have to buy a pair of these bad boys along with the Alpha Dogs. Great combo with my Philips X1. Should be set for awhile....

Hopefully as soon as next week :popcorn: 

 

Need to throw the Alpha Dog in there as well. In the price range, Alpha and HE-560 are very similar. As of right, I am planning on picking up an Alpha for work and an HE-560 for my home set-up, but if the PM-1 can squeak in there, I'll gladly pay a few bucks extra.

Alpha dog for Work and he-560 for home : exactly like me ! 😉

HeadphoneAddict,

in term of sound quality, does He560 sound better or just sound different compare to He500 ?

Any sound an Ortho delivers is a direct correlation to the amp being used. I'm looking forward to my 560......

To the Op's.... can people please qualify if the HE-560's being used are purchases or loaners? Being given free phones for reviews contaminated the Oppo thread. Lets be fair..... LIKE THE OLD DAYS!!
