    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Hi-res buys you better mastering & larger DR as it's not mastered to be heard through earbuds, that's all. Been debated at length at https://www.head-fi.org/threads/24bit-vs-16bit-the-myth-exploded.415361/ Talking about Hi-Res download from hdtracks, qobuz etc OFC it's easier to downsample to...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Whistling of Alessandro Alessandroni is heaven on earth off this phone. This remastered CD from first-generation master tapes stops time in its own way, bonus tracks leave me jaded every time and no crackling whatsoever luckily: https://quartetrecords.com/product/the-sicilian-clan/ CD3 was...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    it's everywhere, all the time, intro distorts like hell for instance: how it got the green light is beyond me, and yes original CDDA is even worse as yt is lo-fi lossy audio. Moar crackling, yippee.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I've been working in recording studios quite a bit lately actually, Yamaha NS10M remains standard in most of them as it comes with the ugliest mids you could imagine, so if tune sounds good on them it'll work anywhere else, in theory at least...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I believe many mixing engineers would do good enrolling 6V2 in their monitoring gear in order to get to hear the harsh truth, because humming and distortion in recent records is inexcusable. But then again today's worldwide music production is about autotuned vocals on top of nasty 808 drums...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    ^ Because angelboy said "Hifiman's Stealth Magnets are supposed to help mitigate that, if their marketing is to be believed" and we would have to see internal pics to find out, as we did with AUDEZE who blatantly failed their wild promises IRL. I've always been afraid of being unhappy w/ oval...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    English appears to be your native tongue, I only spoke about FAZOR from Audeze...but then again it's all made in a garage by ppl whose job is to literally hammer drivers lol so what would you expect really: youtu.be/ltqCUzBNnys?t=349 I'm still partial about DIY fuzzor as I believe it's made of...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    For one, Fazor appears to be total bs: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/instructive-and-sad-story-about-lcd-3-modification-attempt.770678/#post-11669237 Whether Stealth is the same story IRL remains to be proven. These cups tailored-printed for a cheap Hifiman kinda promise to do the same...

    The Opamp thread

    fully agreed but 49722 datasheet calls it a drop-in replacement for 49720, specs are much better and SQ astounding IME :)

    The Opamp thread

    99.99999999999% fakes, 49722 much better anyhow

    The Opamp thread

    blind rolling is bound to fail, these aren't lego bricks replacing 49720 by 49722 is full of win, official drop-in replacement :)

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    SMC connectors are your hugest SQ bottleneck here by very far as these weren't designed for analog audio, slapping mega pricey pads on SMC is a total waste IME.
