    Heh, looks like did the open grill mod to an HE-6 and added a comfy headband. Keen.

    EDIT: Dang, can't tell what kind of cable connector the cans have. More details available anywhere?

    So these are planar after all? On the other thread I saw some info on them being electrostats
     
  5. Cakensaur
    they look very interesting. colour me intrigued but i'll wait for more until i pass judgement.

    Planar.

    Yes, very interested in the cable connector..

    Subbing, even if they probably cost more than my car

    To early to say yet I suppose but hopefully quality of materials and manufacturing processes are all ironed out before pre-orders kick in.

    the dudes in the full-sized headphone forum are already onto this and two pages in

    HE1000? I do really like the way HE1000 are constructed (pads, grill, minimalistic internal design that won't block sound from leaking out naturally)... Much better than all those Oppos, LCD-X(C) etc.
     
    Maybe 2x better than HE500? I struggle to find a planar-magnetic headphone to substitute HE500 because while Audezes are darker (too dark to call neutralish) and their construction and comfort suck (extremely), the rest of Hifiman line is too bright-sounding. HE500 (especially modded) just offer the best of both worlds - the full-bodied nature (bass, mids) of Audeze as well as Hifiman's treble, openness and better comfort (which is not on HD800 level but still perfectly fine for my head). It's weird Hifiman discontinued them because they were trully unique (and I am worried that my pair may stop working at some time in the future with no chance for a repair =/). Wish HE1000 sounded more similar to HE500 than HE6 or HE560... Not gonna happen almost for sure.
