    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Still on the hunt for a SS headphone amp. Considering a classic amp that I used to read about often.. audio gd master 9 with HE6 upgrade. What are the thoughts on this pairing (last time I did research was 2015 lol)

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Loving the HE6s so far with metal. The first thing I noticed over the HE500s was the overall improvement in richness of sound. Its not necessarily warm or lush but very extremely full sounding.

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

      Yeah, I've read the laid back comment too many times in various threads (for various genres too). Definitely wont be going in that direction. The good news is I'll save a good chunk by going with the HE6s as well.

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

      Was wondering which headphone (or any other HE1000/HE500 owner) you would describe as more engaging/forward. The HE500 or HE 1000

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

      A nice price drop for a used one would be nice. However I wouldn't mind picking up a new one and just modding it myself. I have the focus pads already for my HE500s and the grill mod would be pretty easy to pull off. For me personality, I would wait on the fuzzor mod because I tend to enjoy...

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    Yeah, going to wait to see if something will be released. Leaning towards the HE6s now because I know I would enjoy them.

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    Definitely considering the HE1000 even with the price tag. Kind of put off my HE6 purchase just to wait and see what the pricing would be for the HE1000s and if theyre announcing a direct successor to the HE6s.

    Excited for the new Enslaved album. Been listening to a lot of the older stuff, seems to get better and better.

    = Hifiman Regrilling Mod =

    Just removed the stock mesh. Currently no plans to add another grill but will definitely have to be careful and stores these in the original Hifiman box so that dust doesn't accumulate.

    Any impressions on the Grados RS1 (i or e) and the WA5?   Enjoyed the Grados sr325i for a few years before upgrading to the HE500s and sometimes miss the sound.

    Woo Audio Amp Owner Unite

      I asked a similar question when I first got my WA5. Everyone advised me to switch out the stocks ones so I ended up changing out the stock tubes pretty quickly (2 weeks in). I still don't really have a 300b tube but love the sound so far. I'm almost at the point of being skeptic that it could...

    Just received my replacement Sylvania 6SN7GT (1952 vintage ONLY/bad boys tall). First pair had a dead tube on arrival. I've never really been good at A/Bing things because I don't take note of what I'm hearing and I immediate dive into the upgraded components. With the Brimars and the new...

      I know what you mean, very happy with what I've heard as well. The upgraded 6sn7 tubes I had to send back due to defect but just got the Brimars and loving them so far (only about 4 hours of listenning though.) The other tubes are stock. Can only imagine how good it'll get with upgrades.
