    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    So I've been using them for sometime on high gain from my Aune X7s with balanced cables and the Dekoni Elite Sheepskin pads and I have to say they are really settling in. They aren't at shrill as they were but they treble is present. The bass hits but isn't muddled and they really have kept...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    So I just switched my Aune x7s to high gain and the HE5SEs basically lit up for lack of a better term. I can't even go past 11:50 on the nob and last night I was like at 12:05 to get them to come alive- with balanced xlr. I'd really try to throw the Dekoni Elite Sheepskins on these, completely...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    For me it’s like when I played guitar. The tones and sounds you get from them all are different. Some force you to listen. Some just make you comfy and allow you to listen and do other things...I think my headphones come from the place where I used to own ten guitars in my twenties when I played...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    I have an Aune x7 so it should push it okay. It’s class A. I have a set of LCDX I just got for Christmas which I love so I’ll give them a go. I pulled the trigger. They seem to be selling well above that currently so I’m sure as you said I could get my money out of it. I also have hd650...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    like is a strong word. I’m just trying to make them work but honestly $200 spent isn’t so bad an investment. sonif I could get a set of HE6SE for $700 new you’d say pull the trigger?

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    Maybe I misread. And added the two 00s accidentally. I used them for some gaming and they are quite great for that actually. The highs and accuracy really shine for it. They are just really hard to drive sadly but then again so are the AKG K712s and DT 1990 which are the audiophile gaming...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    So I used the balanced cable and they noticeably came alive. They react much better and seem so much more...agile? The bass is much more alive and present especially with the Dekoni sheepskin elites. I felt Ori pads from my Argons MK2s muffled it a little too much. The highs still ring but...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    I'm listening to the Watchmen Soundtrack Vol 1 (Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross) and I think it's not so bad, I find specific songs really highlight it. Again putting the elite sheepskin pads on them cut the treble down a lot and pushes the bass out more. But yeah you have to crank them. I'm using...

    HiFiMan HE5SE versus the original HE5

    Did you ever try the fenstrated pads? I put the elite sheepskins on from Dekoni and seems to tame the shrillness of the treble and smooth out the bass. imaging seems to still be there. It was hairy at first but once the pads settled in they worked pretty good. I got them for $200 used (barely)...

    Fostex T60RP

    Been using these a while. I love them. They ruined my TH610s and HD 650s...

    NEW! Fostex TH610 Premium Reference Closed-Back Headphones

    Hey I just got a pair of TH610s and love them. Except for the pads. I don't mind EQing but since I wear glasses I wanted something memory foam so I was looking at ZMF Eikons or Oris. I'm leaning towards Oris with possibly picking up the Dekoni attenuation rings as some found they match well...
