    For sale is a hard to find HiFiman planar magnetic HE-5LE headphone in matte black. These have very unique textured cups that feel slightly like rubber. Condition is excellent, with only a few scuffs on the cups and a few visible marks on the yokes. Fantastic sounding headphone that's also quite...

    Hifiman HE-5 original walnut edition

    I am selling my Hifiman HE-5 headphones in very good condition. These are one of the finest orthodynamics ever made - excellent natural tonality of the acoustic instruments (wooden chambers!), extremely fast (with the proper amp), huge 3D soundstage, powerful and articulate bass. I upgraded the...

    FS HiFiMan He-5LE

    Fantastic sounding and rare 5LE. The condition is so / so, as is of them case with these - before HifMan really had the level of build quality they do today. Some minor hard to see nicks. Upgraded semi clear screens (more open sound). Rings that hold screens in aren't totally tight / don't fully...

    Desert Island Headphone Amp combo

    Just for fun and to learn what other headfiers would choose I am asking if you had to choose 3 headphones and three HP Amps  to listen to if you were stranded on a desert Island ( with an electric grid) what would you select from only your current or past inventory in other words no fantasy...

    A comparison between Beyerdynamic T1 and Hifiman HE-5LE

    As a starter on head-fi journey I'd like to try to share a little of my experience of these two, which are both highly appreciated headphones here.

    Shure SE 535 cable?

    Someone told me that the best improvement I can make to any headphone is using the cable... Is there a noticeable sound difference to upgrading the cord for my SE 535's (clear ones) or would it be a waste? I use it mainly with my iPhone with music downloaded from iTunes.... If so what is the...

    HE-5LE : My left driver stopped working. What now?

    My HE-5LE have never had a single problem, and were working perfectly the last time I set them down. That was either this morning or last night. This evening there is no sound at all from the left driver. I switched cables, and checked my amp (NFB-10SE) with other phones. It is the driver...

    WA6 (or other) for He-5LE

    Any of you using the WA6 + HE-5 or HE-5LE? I paired it with the K702 at the meet and it blew my Lyr out of the water entirely! So if it's a good pair for the HiFiMAN's too, I think I'll have to buy a WA6. Other than the Lyr, what amps would you recomend for the HE5LE? The WA6 looks promising if...

    What's the main difference between those headphones? How will they compare when it comes to bass, to mids and the highs?

    FS/FT: Hifiman HE-5LE for sale or trade for HE-4 or Sennheiser HD 700 (Temp price drop)

    I've decided to consider selling/trading my mint Hifiman HE-5LE. These headphones are not sold new, and have only been listed for sale about 3 times including this ad in the last 4 months so they are pretty hard to come by. I love the these, but i want to get the HE-4 since i feel more...

    IC: Hifiman HE-5LE

    These are great sounding and in excellent shape. They sound very similar to the HE-6's in terms of tonallity, but with a more upfront presentation. In any case, these cans are extremely underrated and represent an excellent value.   For some reason I don't use nearly as much at the HE-6's...

    IC: Like New HE-5 LE with custom speaker tap

    First owner of these HE-5LEs bought from Moon Audio in December. I love the sound, but not so much the fit. They get a lot of praise around here for their comfort, so I must be in the minority.    I have the original box, cables and a custom adapter cable I bought from HighFlight so I could...

    FS: Head-Direct HE-5

    My pair of HE-5's haven't been getting much use for the last couple of months, so I'm putting them up for sale. They are pretty much brand new. I'm not really sure how much these still go for, so how about $450 + actual shipping + paypal. Reasonable offers accepted.

    HiFiMan HE-5LE driven by Little Dot Mk III
