I need a better cable for my HE1000SE, the stock ones are not good enough...
Any suggestions??

I'm using the Lavri Grand with great success. More treble sparkle, smoother sound, increased 3-dimensionality and realism (HE1000 with V2 pads, though).

Yes, I've had the Master Silver before. The Grand is thicker and heavier, but still relatively lightweight, so it feels surprisingly comfortable for its size. In comparison the Grand particularly offers an even more detailed treble.

My current setup by the way
This cheap KKcable tame a bit the treble of this headphones, and it sounds better than the original cables

thanks for your suggestions...
I’ll go for the Lavri Grand or the Norne Einvaldi....
Maybe Einvaldi for better mids without taking the treble details??

The best tube amp for HE1000SE?

I am considering the Schiit Mjolnir...

Am currently using the Mjolnir with the he1000se, it made my sound more punchy compared to my Lyr 2. It sounds great. But if you're especially looking for transparency and detail a lot more than punchiness I suggest you go look for an used, good priced Ragnarok.

Norne S3–Amazing
I just pucked up an hekv2 and i was thinking the silver draug (which ihave with my hd800).

I believe it’s a toych smoother than the s3 and has less punch (particulatly on bootom end) compared to the s2 that i used to own.

I’m thinking i would prefer less punch with the hek

What do you think based on what you’ve listened to?

for experienced hek (v2 or se) owners is there much benefit in having both an hek amd he6 (se) or does the hek cover almost all needs for the he6?

Does the he6 work for 60’s/70’s rock better and is more forgiving maybe?
