    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    It probably went to your spam. I have had to tell Gmail hifiman's emails are not spam like 5 times. They really don't trust the Chinese mail server, I think.

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    Yes, there are tons of factors that play into precieved bass with tons of names trying to describe them (slam, impact, thump, depth, speed, etc) and depending on your ear these different factors have a different weight on what makes up "bass". There are also how other parts of the frequency...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    Thought I would give those pads a whirl, too. They arrived today and I did some listening and measurements to see how they stack up against the dozens of other pads I've tried on my HE6se V2. Some select comparisons are below. Construction: They are quite similar to Hifiman's own FocusPad...

    Onkyo A800 and H900M full-size headphones - shipping March 2016

    Ah, thanks for the heads up, I didn't realize there was another thread. Going to give that one a watch. Thanks!

    Onkyo A800 and H900M full-size headphones - shipping March 2016

    I know this thread is basically dead since these headphones have long since been discontinued, but if future generations need some replacement cables, I have a tidbit for them. Audeze LCD-1 cables work on the Onkyo A800. The cables have the same dual 3.5mm, wired in stereo to both earcups (so...

    Klipsch HP-3

    I haven't seen any. One of the main problems is the magnetic mounting mechanism with magnets built into the pads. If they had a removable mounting ring or lip fit like most pads you might be able to custom order some from a place like Vesper, but that would probably be +$100, so that doesn't...

    Klipsch High End Over Ear-your input appreciated

    I did the same thing to my HP-3! They used to give me a terrible hotspot after an hour, but with the strap I can wear them for hours no problem.

    Klipsch High End Over Ear-your input appreciated

    I still have mine. I bought them a couple of years ago (does that count as an original owner?) and don't plan to sell them. They don't get much head time these days, but I do reach for them for some specific albums.

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    The OG 400 and 500 really have a different tuning to modern HE series Hifimans and they compliment each other well. The HE-400 was my first planar (and kind of started an obsession, honestly, just look at my sig...) I did find the treble emphasis dominated a bit too much. However, a few years...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Good observation. I didn't realize the internal wires differed so much. The Edition XX cable has a similar diameter of about 0.9mm per wire but all the wires are silver vs the copper and silver combo of that one. However, that surgical tubing outer sleeve can go jump in a lake regardless. Don't...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Those pieces of heatshrink are now the best parts on that terrible surgical tube cable 😂 Also, if you are curious what's under that tubing, here is your answer.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    It seem the price has dropped again on the V2 to just $400. https://www.adorama.com/hmhe6sev2.html?&emailprice=t Crazy to think when I bought mine last year in July that I thought the price has bottomed out :sweat_smile:

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    Welp, it appears as if the price has dropped again. It's only $400 now. https://www.adorama.com/hmhe6sev2.html?&emailprice=t Crazy to think that when I bought last year in July at $650 I thought it had bottomed out :sweat_smile:

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    This interesting to me because I recently picked up a 400i and I hate the headband. It's definitely not built for large heads (like my massive dome), so those people should be wary. Clamp pressure is super high and if the pads are too thin (i.e., Focuspad) the plastic piece that the yoke...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    What are the dimensions of the VOCE pads? DCA's website is frustratingly vague on their product page. Ideally, if you could measure the outside diameter, shortest/tallest depth (they are angled, right?), and inside (ear hole) diameter. Just wondering how they compare dimensionally to something...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    Haven't seen nearly as many posts in recent times about stuck diaphragms so your new set will probably be fine. But here is this post on what to look for, just in case you need it.

    Monolith M1070 Over Ear Open Back Planar Headphones

    M1070 uses the same grilles (and screw hole pattern) as the M1060 (NOT the M1060C, which is different). So any M1060 grille design will work with the M1070. However, the cups of the M1070 are slightly larger so the the grilles will be inset from the edge of the cup compared to sitting flush on...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    You are going to get answers all over the place since everyone has an opinion on how to "properly drive" an HE6se (including me!) and people rarely agree on this topic in particular. Amp opinions aside, it financially doesn't make the most sense to blind-buy an amp before doing at least some...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    Something to keep in mind with this particular Crin measurement of the He6se v2 is that I'm pretty sure the set he tested had a stuck driver on left side (given the bass response) so that average is a bit wonky. If you compare the right channel only, the bass is within a db or two of the LCD-X...

    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    Thank for the replies @buke9 and @GearMe. Veper pads certainly look nice and reviews are generally positive so I have toyed with the idea of getting some Vesper or Yaxi pads but $60-$90 for pads that might change the sound negatively for me and my ears has kept my wallet closed. I have been...

    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    Has anyone been able to buy replacement velour 95x pads? I checked Koss's website but they only have the crinkly pleather 950 pads listed. I also contacted their customer service asking about a week ago and it's just been crickets. I also haven't found any 3rd party pads that look comparable to...

    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (On or Over Ear Headphones)

    That definitely looks different from mine. Mine looks (or looked before I modded them) exactly like the description images on that listing, not the customer reviews. Probably some kind of silent revision. Wouldn't be surprised if they they changed the tuning when they did so. But also, maybe...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Glad your set isn't defective! The thing about soundstage is that it's a psychoacoustic effect, meaning it's your brain's interpretation of the sound. This means it can vary a lot from person to person and can change over time depending on your perception. The drivers are still close to your...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    First off, welcome to Head-Fi! Sorry about your wallet.... :o2smile: As for your HE6se, First thing I would check and make sure that the drivers aren't stuck. It seems that even when brand new, both drivers can be stuck right out of the box. That will severely hamper performance (especially...

    Onkyo A800 and H900M full-size headphones - shipping March 2016

    I assume the pad mounting mechanism is the same on the A800 and H900M. They twist off counter-clockwise for the right, clockwise for the left (when facing the pad). Takes about a 16th of a turn to release them. As for repairing those, I don't think anything can be done about fake leather that...
