    Centrance Hifi M8(with one issue)

    This thing works fine except for one issue. There' s some type of glitch in the firmware where once the battery goes below 50 percent, you either have to toggle the power switch several times, or plug it into the wall to get it to come one. Centrance wanted to charge a flat rate of 150.00...

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    . Yes, I commented on this when I received my production pair. The betas head pad was just a little too big, and the the head pad on the production versions is way to small. The pics blownaway posted really sums it up. Hifiman didn't just shorten the head pad, they pretty much took a hatchet...

    I think instead of making it a few ticks smaller, he went way overboard. With the beta, I used next to the smallest setting. Now it's maxed out, it's like he skipped all of the settings in between. He should have just made it the size of the one on the he560. The first headband was for large...

    It's also been stated that the manufacturing tolerances were tighten up. This could also have something to do with it as well. For me, I would say it's not the headband, as I would probably be one of the few who wish they had the older headband. The new strap is a little on the small side for me...

    Summer gave me a return call last Tuesday when I called the previous week incurring when the production version will be shipped out(she was on vacation). She told me they would either be shipped later that day or tomorrow. Two days later they showed up at my front door. So a total of 10 days...

    I  completely agree. The artificial sounding soundstage is what put me off the most with the hd800(even more than the harshness in the lower treble). But everyone has certain things they look for, so it's good there are many interpretations of soundstage with high end cans. The hd800 soundstage...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Yeah, one should really do research before purchasing marantz. Some are gems, others not so much. But the vintage pioneers are pretty universal, even the ones from different lines with different sound signatures. I haven't heard a bad one yet. That also goes for sansui and kenwood based on my...

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    Well that's why you hear the phrase "we all hear differently" thrown around a lot. Yes, it's a good idea to check them out for yourself, you may or may not disagree. I'm an he6 fanatic, but the midrange on the he1000 is superior to even a fully modded he6 imo. Ymmv as always.

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    For the cans listed, I would easily chose the pioneer. The marantz sound is all over the place. Some models share the same house sound, others sound completely different. For example, 2325-warm to the point of being dark with rolled off highs. But can still be a good match for bright sounding...

    I share this opinion.

    Your statement is false for claiming people with high end setups are Luke warm about these.. I have a couple of highend setups and my opinion isn't Luke warm. Also, there are several who have high end setups whose opinion is also not like warm. For you to say otherwise(which you did) is False...

    That is a very inaccurate statement. My top two setups exceedes several thousands of dollars each, and I absolutely love the hek. There are others whose setups also eclipse several thousands who also loves these. Your'e not too crazy about these and that's fine. But don't go throwing around...
