    Hifiman HE-4 Impressions Thread

    Just posted in the classifieds, but I'm looking to purchase the HE-4 if anyone is willing to sell. PM me with a price... Located in the US

    Audeze LCD-X

    It's the easiest thing in the world to build - I had never soldered until I started the ACA, and I finished both monoblocks in about 6-8 hours. Can't beat the performance for the price either.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    My Fourte's just came in yesterday. Have to say I am very impressed. I don't currently have a portable DAC/Amp or DAP, so I was mostly running them from my phone (Galaxy Note 5). They work well out of my vio V800/V200 stack as well, which is great. Now I find myself looking at portable solutions...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I just finished a DIY build of the Pass Amp Camp v3 monoblocks (also known as ACA) (6W into 8 ohms) and I've got to say... I am totally floored by the sound through the HE-6 (blutack, grill-less, audeze vegans w/ felt mod). I'm not sure how it's possible given their power rating, but my ears...

At the dealers the Wells sounded good with...

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Depends on the genre and mic technique used to capture the performance. In general, I find myself liking the 6's more for more intimate settings (close-mic'd solo piano jazz - for example, the Thelonious Monk recordings on Columbia.) The improved transient response makes piano jazz a very...

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Recently purchased my HE-6 from a fellow head-fi'er and I couldn't be happier. Even out of my V200/V800 stack, the 6's best my LCD-X's in nearly every category of performance. Mods made the difference even greater. Looks like I'm a HiFiman convert.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    Hello fellow HE-6 owners. First of all, this is my first post! (long time lurker around head-fi, r/headphones).    I recently purchased a 6-screw HE-6, and after a few weeks with it I decided to do most of the common mods (removing stock damping, pad rolling, etc).   I was at first hesitant...
