Hifiman HE-6

RobW, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I'm a big fan of the Sennheiser HD800 and wanted a headphone to compliment it with more bass presence. The HE-6 has a very "palpable" bass response; I can feel it as well has hear it. The only problem is the upper end is a bit overcooked. Tyll from Innerfidelity calls it a "tizzyiness" and I agree.
  • Pros: Great bass Responds well to power Very detailed
  • Cons: Extremely fatiguing treble Electric guitars are rendered very harshly

  • Summary: I have been in search of a headphone that could give me the details and dynamic range of an electrostat with the tonal weight of a reference dynamic. The previous system was a K701 with a Singlepower Extreme.
  • Pros: Best headphones short of top end stats. IMO
  • Cons: Not really headphones but as mentioned, head speakers.

  • Summary: I (of course) agree with Skylab's review of these splendid 'ear-speakers'. I can also emphasize the power requirement in two words: "Speaker terminals".   I drive them from my 13W Ming Da integrated amp speaker terminals. Sublime. (I tried my Audio-gd Phoenix & LD Mk IV - just ok).
  • Pros: Mids, Trebles
  • Cons: Price?

  • Summary: Now that I have spent time comparing the HE-6, LCD-2, Edition 10, T1, and HD800, I thought the time was right to put down a few thoughts on the HE-6, which are, when properly amped, a TERRIFIC headphone.
  • Pros: Outstanding sound at a price that is very attractive in the realm of high end headphones
  • Cons: Requires a very powerful partnering amp to get the best out of them.

  • Summary: Got a chance to listen to the HE-6s at the recent ChiUniFi meet in Chicago.  They were paired with a new Ray Samuels amp (due out in Dec) and the combo was nothing short of jaw dropping! Properly driven, the HE-6s had incredible presence and imaging.
  • Pros: Immersive Sound, Great Articulation, Effortless Presentation, non-Fatiguing Sound
  • Cons: Slightly Heavy for the Thin-of-Neck, Needs a Powerful Amp

  • Summary: I'm using this headphones with a NAD 3225PE in very good condition, connected directly to the speakers output using the hifiman box, and a Sony QS cdp740. I've compared with a Beyerdynamic T1 coonected to a Teac DAC UDH01 and Opera Cyber Consonance headphones amplifier with Valvo-Siemens tubes and...
