    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Yes I found it dulled the whole sound (not by much but it was noticeable)

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I remember (when they first came out) complaints about brightness but I was thinking it just puts back the treble that the LCD-2 left out (and I hated those and sold them within days)

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    "Maximum Power, 16 ohms: 9.0W RMS per channel Maximum Power, 32 ohms: 6.0W RMS per channel (7.5W at <1% THD typical, one channel driven)" and at the impedance of the HE-6 ?

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I could never describe the HE6 as bright (as opposed to the original LCD-2 which was missing the top end)

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

      Mjolnir 2 Maximum Power, 50 ohms: 5.0W RMS per channel
   NFB1-AMP 8000MW /  40 ohm (so a bit more than the above at 50 Ohms)     There have been several favourable impressions of the latter with the HE-6 in it's thread (and it's a lot cheaper!)

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I have a great combo with my HE6 at the moment   They driven by a Primare 30.1 100w dual mono amp   Now for the problem - I need to downsize to a much smaller form factor   So any suggestions? (up to about $1000), secondhand is fine   Is the Gustard H10 any good ?

    Abrahamsen V6 DAC

    Are you sure that's a new model?  Mine is a few years old (and still an amazing DAC) and is a V series   They were bringing out an entirely new series

    Audio-gd USB-32 Firmware, Drivers, and Feedback Thread

    DI V3   I upgrade the firmware (Audio-gdUSB32FWversion1.rar) and installed the drivers (Audio-gdUSB32driverversion1.rar)   No issues and unlike the previous firmware upgrade (which I had to roll back as it sounded dreadful) this sounds better. More detail, more space.

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Thankyou for the supplier   I put the Hifiman Velour's back on this morning (just as a sanity check) and quickly put the Audeze vegan pads back on - they are also more comfortable for me   Quote:

    Might get a bit expensive to fly over for some felt - could you tell me roughly how thick the felt is ?   Quote:

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I NEVER understood the love for the LCD-2 (I only had the Rev 1)   How anybody can think that a headphone with almost an entire spectrum missing was good mystified me

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    When I first had the HE-6 the lack of centre was most disconcerting on the WA6 SE. Proper amping and Audeze Vegan pads resolved that issue

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I had a WA6 SE which was such a beautiful amp with the Grado's (I still miss the glow)   Every single speaker amp beat it with the HE-6 (Pioneer A300R, Denson B100, Exposure XXV and Primare)

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I'll have to try the tape - I always end up aligning my Audeze Vegan pads before putting them on - I also find them very comfortable
