Yeah that would be good to know. I was lucky and won a couple of mono amps worth $1600 from Red Dragon Audio at the big 25K raffle. Hoping I can score on the other one also. Had a good time at the breakfast. Hopefully I can make it next year.

Went this year with two friends on Saturday and had a blast. Was fun to talk to Dr. Fang about the new hifiman headphones and trying the he-400i. Soundstage in comparison to the he-400 was much wider which was quite cool and they were quite a comfortable pair of headphones. Dr. Fang kept trying to convince me to sell my he-400 in favor for the he-400i and I may have to consider it. The he-560 as well was quite a nice listen and the re-400 balanced sounded quite a lot better then the universal re-400 I own so I may consider getting a pair if the hifiman player had a bit better ui.

 

ADL and their new headphones quite surprised me didn't know about them in the past and I like what I heard. Friends and I had a nice conversation with Dan and his Mad Dogs. The new schiit wyrd I really am interested in along with a friend of mine, and had a fun time at the schiit table.

 

Also was a bit lost in the beginning and staff was throwing me around until I found Warren and he showed me where the headphone room in the Hilton was, so big thanks Warren :D 

 

e. mean't to say "convince me to sell my he-400 in favor for the he-400i"

Can you please clarify this statement about "Fang trying to convince me my he-400 in favor for the he-400i"-

 

was Fang trying to say that the HE-400i will be better in some specific regards of your HE-400?

or 

was there something in the HE-400 line that would remain superior?

Ahh I see what happened, left out "to sell" so the sentence should look like "convince me to sell my he-400 in favor for the he-400i"

 

But yeah Fang was trying to convince me to sell my he-400 as the new he-400i are superior headphones.

Hey I made it into Tyll's blog in a photo! I was the "enthusiastic listener" to the new HiFiMAN HE560.   Thanks for the photo, Tyll.  :)

I'm in the 7th photo down, on the blog:  http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/here-we-go-show-newport-2014

 

I did enjoy trying the 400i and the 560.  I'll be curious to hear what other people think.  I'm bummed I couldn't make it to the breakfast.

Yeah that's been my FAVE Audeze lately! and @warrenpchi never thought he'd hear me say that! Over my beloved LCD-3 that is...

But I can't stop listening to it! Those were, remember brotha, my nu LCD-2 w/ Fazor! She LOVED it, check below...

 

I'm burning in the LCD-3 w/ Fazor right now...

I don't blame her for wanting one. The new LCD-2 makes me want to skip all the other headphones/iems and just save up to get the LCD-2.

Sorry guys, been busy with meetings and such, taking care of related business, and some cool/secret stuff I can't talk about... so the show didn't really end for me until last night.  I'll do the drawing and post the winners later on tonight or first thing in the morning.

Home of the Liquid Carbon, Liquid Crimson, Liquid Glass, Liquid Gold and
Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!
