    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I received my eBay honeycomb grills and they look great on my HE6SE V2. If you haven't removed your grills yet, what are you waiting for? Everything sounds even more airy and soundstage seems more wide / 3-Dimensional. These are amazing headphones that keep getting better and better with each...

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    If you're wondering if the Jot 2 can power the HE6SE I can confirm they do. That means it can power most headphones on the market today (through the balanced output). On balanced output on low gain I use the Jot 2 at a sweet spot of 12 to 2 on the volume knob. This is the preferred setting and...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    The Jotunheim 2 powers the HE6SE nicely. It seems that the sweet spot for this combo is at 12 to 2 on the Jot 2 dial on low gain. Everything sounds really balanced at that point. If I set the Jot 2 to high gain, I can only go up to 10 on the volume knob before the highs get to me but then...

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    I managed to jump on the Adorama $650 Hifiman HE6SE V2 deal and boy they are definitely the upgrade to the HE-400 that I was looking for. They bring the mids foward just a bit and the treble isn't as fatiguing. They need a ton of power though. Which is why I had to upgrade to the Jotunheim 2...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Ok I just received my Schiit Jotunheim 2 amp and will be testing it with my HE6SE. But after only a couple of songs so far it's definitely providing a better sound over the Asgard 3, since it's more powerful.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    I'm open to suggestions to $700+ headphone upgrades but will continue to enjoy these cans in the mean time. They're still really good at everything I play through them.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Thanks guys! I just ordered an Asgard 3 because I currently have an older USB DAC and I figured if I upgrade headphones in the future the Asgard 3 will suffice. It’s practically the same cost at the Modi/Magni stack with more power.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    I still have my HE-400 headphones from several years ago. My old amplifier's AC Input broke so can anyone recommend a AMP/DAC combo to pair with the HE-400? I am considering the Schiit Modi 3+/Magni3+ stack but am open to other suggestions.

    The best $200 tube-SS hybrid transportable amp you've never heard of ....

    I'm not sure but I'm guessing that Sense did change the tube setup from their initial setup.

    Quote:   I dunno man but the HE-400s are perfect for EDM. I guess I just have an amp and DAC that matches well, and J$ pads help.

    I believe jerg has recommended taking out the spacers when listening to the pleathers. You might want to try that.

    Got my J$ pads in today as well. Love the comfort and sound.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    I listen to a ton of EDM, Rap, R&B and the bass reproduction is on point. If you think there's not enough bass from the HE-400, get a new DAC or AMP. Or your music files are not up to par and are mastered like crap.

    The best $200 tube-SS hybrid transportable amp you've never heard of ....

    It's Tubey-warm sounding....lol. But that's probably due to my current tubes, GE 3S4s. The 2P2 ones that I got don't sound bad, they just were defective after warming up.   Vampire Weekend's Contra sounds very nice with this combo.

    Ok so I got some new GE 3S4 tubes in from eBay and so far so good! Whining was probably due to the crappy Chinese 2P2 stock tubes after warming up.
