Why you are editing your previous post Fang, are you trying to put the dust under the carpet?

This photo was from my Chinese social media weibo for a tech article about music cellphone  and DAC chips. That article was invited by a Chinese audio website. I use this photo to make some fun, not for any political reason. Btw, as a Chinese citizen, I have no idea and interest about who will become US new president.

   Fang needs to hire a VP of Marketing who (1) speaks and writes in fluent, unbroken English, and has a working knowledge of American cultural norms
 
 
This would be very wise. When dealing with people in the audio community in general they are crazy and very opinionated. Despite the current group think in this thread being right, wrong or other there is an appropriate way to address the community and whether it is because of cultural differences or English as a second language you have been far off the mark until your last post
  I will post a video of drop test. Custom-made plywood earcup vs nature wood earcup. I am not sure about schedule yet, but I will try to have it before Chinese new year holiday. 
 
 Despite how unfair, in your mind, what an individual here has posted. If you can keep it to the facts, exhibit no attitude and take the high road. Only then is it safe for your brand for you to participate in a forum like this. Going forward with these new releases you are trying to sell a very expensive product to relatively few individuals. Coming across as petty or insulting you risk alienating that small community willing to spend such amounts on a product.

Wow, so you compare some headphone enthusiasts reacting negatively to the Chinese Cultural Revolution? Talk about outrageous, offensive hyperbole.
 
For those who don't know, the Chinese Cultural Revolution was a 10 year program set in place by Chairman Mao to seize total control over China. This is from Wikipedia:
 
"Millions of people were persecuted in the violent struggles that ensued across the country, and suffered a wide range of abuses including public humiliation, arbitrary imprisonment, torture, sustained harassment, and seizure of property. A large segment of the population was forcibly displaced, most notably the transfer of urban youth to rural regions during the Down to the Countryside Movement. Historical relics and artifacts were destroyed. Cultural and religious sites were ransacked."
 
Fang, that you would compare some harsh words on a headphone website to the struggles of people who were persecuted and had their lives destroyed by their government is sickening. Who here is threatening to ransack your home, or displace you from your home, or imprison you, torture you, or do any of the things that Mao did during the Cultural Revolution? Have you no shame?

Yes you will have back lash if you release a dac which breaks apart, costs $6000 and then a v2 is released in 6 months making the v1 owners lose value. Then you can come and try to attack all those customers. Maybe you can have LA police be the beta tester and initial buyers.

 HIFIMAN released a headphone at an expensive price --> HIFIMAN is greedy and want to make money --> HIFIMAN has to be executed.

Hifiman released an expensive headphone >>>> Hifiman has track record of bad quality and customers losing value so customers dont trust new headphones >>> Customers voice concerns and HFM attacks them personally and calls them names >>>> HFM acts as the victim and compares it to the Chinese Revolution

Wow I've been staying out of this thread until now because I didn't see the point of piling it on HFM as other people have made very articulate points yet Fang conveniently ignored all of them.

As someone who lives and works in China (and bought the HE-400i on day 1 in Beijing), I am completely aghast and offended that the HFM CEO would have the gall to equate a headphone forum to the cultural revolution. How dense, small and insecure can you be? Really, you are being "executed"? Why don't you tell your grandparents' generations that you know how they felt during Mao's reign because someone insulted your overpriced headphones?

That will sure make him more popular in just about a little less than half of the US and in his entire home country.Not sure about Russia though...

Heck, I'm not Chinese but even I can feel the insensitivity from Fang.

When my Audeze broke, I didn't compare it to Jim Crow or compare my JVC breaking to Hiroshima.

I wonder what those who suffered under the Mao regime would say about the "suffering" of a rich Dr making good money selling headphones. Pretty sure they would swap places in a jiffy.

As per my poor Chinese skills reading his posts under the name Nankai King, Fang sure likes to spend time in the gym and with his kids. He doesn't feel he has to work hard anymore to maintain his standing.He wants to live a very easy life from now on.
