Hi!

For those who've been able to audition these three (no way to audition Abyss and Susvara in my country...), which one has a closer sound signature to the HE-6? I'm looking to upgrade and I'm searching for something in HE-6's tonality, which I love:)

Thanks in advance!

umh... IMHO both Susvara and Abyss are really very far from HE6 in terms of sound sig ......
disclaimer: I have extensively listened to the old 1266, never listened to Phi, so take the above with some caution

IMHO the closest sound sig to the HE6 amongst the cans I have / have listened to is the Utopia, but IMHO they play in different league in terms of overall sound quality

Thanks! I was hoping that one of them could be similar to the HE-6

I thought the original AB-1266 was the most similar headphone to the HE6 I've heard, but better. (The HE500 is also very similar to the HE6, but worse.)

I haven't heard the Phi, SUSVARA, or Utopia, though. The Elear is very far from the HE6 in sound signature.
