    If what I read on the interwebs is correct,it weighs over 700 grams(!!!!) and has a sensitivity of 87. For reference,the original HE-6 has a sensitivity of 83. Im guessing a mega amp will be needed to make these sound good.

    That around the spec of Abyss 1266 and I'm using gsx-mini and it plays perfectly. So you would need powerful amp in the 1000-2000 range.
    @Resolve I just finished watching your YouTube video about it. Welp, now I’m a little worried about the fit with these. My head might be bigger than yours, if you are having issues then this might not fit my larger than normal head. What’s with the Germans engineering such small headphones. I had this issue with the Ultrasone edition 8. It didn’t fit and I had to sell it off. People definitely need to keep that in mind.

    One positive for me is that I have an amp that will drive the bananas off of these with ease. Canjam it is for me.

    I'm told they may actually be releasing a new headband with more extension, and if someone finds it's too short they may replace it with a longer one.

    EDIT: this is just speculation at this point, not confirmed.

    Would someone be able to purchase the larger one before they buy it? So it comes with the bigger headband. Thanks for the heads-up regarding fitment.

    It's what has been circulating on the Hifiman Susvara thread.

    The Kinki Vision THR-1 sounds like the perfect solution to drive this baby.

    Price-wise that wireless Susvara jr is like $300 bucks. I don’t think that’s the Susvara jr. Not at that price.

    True, I don't think Hifiman would ever attach the Susvara name to anything less than $1K let alone the $300 range.

    Just hope this ergonomics issues (Heavy weight, fit) doesn't put a big damper on the whole HEDDphone thing.

    I believe I was just giving up my turn on the Abyss when you stormed the smaller room at CanJam with the HEDD to try it on the tube amp there. You looked so excited, I thought who’s this guy, he looks like he just had too much of the red pill :) I should have stuck around a few more seconds to know what you were trying to say and get a listen too. I totally missed it was next to the Hifiman, and I spent quite a long time evaluating the Arya. My loss until the next CanJam this year...

    Brave man, he was holding the headphones throughout the review from his right hand the whole time, you can see his drooped left shoulder.
    That’s the most obvious headphone cons but pretty sure the performance must be decent.

    Will sure give it a try if a pair is available at CanJam shows.

    Are these available anywhere in Europe? Surprising it's only in the US for now.

    Never thought you're the type of guy to buy Ultrasones. The pricing of their edition line is an absolute joke.

    Keith at Purite Audio has said he should take delivery tomorrow ( Monday )
  15. m17xr2b
    I spoke with Keith, he may get a demo headphone but not tomorrow and has none to sell.
