    Mine arrived from Adorama in 2 days... I LOVE them. I used them instead of my Sennheiser HD800s for music with strong synthesized components, especially bass, such as Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s album “Ghost of Christmas Eve.” They are also just fine for “reasonable volume” listening direct from an iPod Touch 6 Gen, though FAR less sensitive than the Sennheisers (and will produce unreasonable, head banging volume) with a stronger source, such as my Oppo HA2-SE or Lotoo PAW Gold.

    Great info! Assuming you didn't have any headband fitment issues? Some with larger heads have had some trouble with 'em.

    I had the hand strap issue. If you have too, you can ask them for a replacement head strap. The original one is 8 inches. The replacement one is 8.5 inches.

    Was there a cost associated Jaben?

    It was free for my case.

    HE560 V2 Headband is plenty big for me... it is on about the middle of its range of settings. The earpiece brackets on the headband are metal, not plastic, and seem quite durable. Headphone comes with both single ended and balanced cables.

    How nice is that balanced cable? $100 worth and headphones for $150? Just saying, I need a balanced cable for an HEX V2.
     
  9. Hifiearspeakers
    What kind of balanced cable? 2.5mm balanced, 4.4, or XLR?

    Well, if you only need the balanced cable, I'll buy the "leftover" headphones and se cable off you. :wink:

    The Burson Fun with V6 Vivid/Classic opamps usually costs $399 on https://www.bursonaudio.com/products/fun/, but I found these deals:

    For $301 including tax and free shipping at "Ravage Deals":
    With V6 Classic: https://www.ravagedeals.com/product...dphone-amplifier-preamplifier-with-v6-classic
    With V6 Vivid: https://www.ravagedeals.com/products/burson-audio-fun-headphone-amplifier-preamplifier-with-v6-vivid

    Edit: Ravage Deals is a very new site with no contact information, and the domain is only registered for one year. Maybe best to stay away.

    For $319.95 + shipping cost (min. $19 to San Francisco) at "Partsconnexion":
    With V6 Classic: https://www.partsconnexion.com/BURSON-84880.html
    With V6 Vivid: https://www.partsconnexion.com/BURSON-84881.html

    Is anyone familiar with either site?

    Edit 2: Burson does not know who Ravage Deals is, but they are familiar with Partsconnexion and recommend buying from them.

    Partsconnexion.com is solid. I have bought from them a number of times over the years.

    Partsconnexion is an excellent vendor in Canada. I have bought from them many times without problem and their customer service/sales folks are helpful.

    Amazon USA's Deal of the day today includes the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless for $115. Keepa says this is the lowest price ever from Amazon. Clear, Gunmetal, Red, White/Silver available. Note these are original Crossfade Wireless...not 2. Consider the addition of XL pads if you have slightly larger than average ears.

    Also, Not technically a "Deal" because not discounted, but JDS Labs has just released their "Atom" amp for $99 that initial measurements by ASReview indicate performs equal to or better than the new THX amps (and JDS' own O2 and EL amps) in most meaningful specs.

    Features include 1.1W of power at 33 Ohms, Selectable Gain, Dual Inputs, Pre-amp Output, and a plastic case with plastic knob (the last 2 probably help prevent the amp from totally swamping JDS more expensive offerings).

    This thread is not where do discuss it. This is. I did want to give a heads up because there will be a lot of discounts on other amps in the next week and this amp seems to make a very good value comparison.
