    If this is effectively an HE6 with the newer headband style, I'm all in!

    I just want the new headband to fit the old HE-6. I hope HF-man would sell it.

    Hoping those are 3,5 mm connectors too!

    Interesting stuff. Looks like the magnet array has changed on the HEKSE, resulting in higher sensitivity (apparently). Crucial thing I suspect, especially with the HE6SE, will be the pricing. That one would be killer in the market if released at a similar price to the original HE6, especially if they could make it a little easier to drive.

    impedance and sensitivity are the same according to the pic for the he6se. Won't be any easier to drive. It appears to be 32g lighter too.

    Facebook post & translation mentions that the HE1000SE is easier to drive, but could be a translation issue....

    Right. But for the hd6se it is the same as he6.


    That's from the original HE6 product page.

    Compare to the new one:

    Ah ok fair enough. I suspect a lot of people will be chuffed about that...must be some demand for an HE6 with a decent head band (and a decent price)

    470g is quite heavy.

    The longer I stay in this hobby the more I realize how important comfort is.
    I have a feeling that the weight will be distributed somewhat evenly, but still!

    Suspension systems can help quite a bit. Rather than regular headbands that often put all the pressure in a very small area because they don't necessarily accommodate your head size and shape.

    Yeah, or maybe another collaboration with Massdrop like the HE-4xx.
