HE6se + EF100 quick review

The He6se as was its predecessor I known for needing power, a lot of power. So you maybe thinking the little EF100 can drive it? No, its cant. Well…. Its headphone socket can't but the EF100 has a trick up its sleeve, its got speaker taps on the back of it. Now when you hook up the HE6se to those then it's a different kettle of fish entirely. The HE6se begins to come to life, the aspects its known for such as its musicality, dynamism and punch all abound. The combo for sure wants you to work that volume dial hard, its not a set up for laid back gently relaxing listening. It fun, drama, excitement, bass that digs in down deep, passion….. you get the idea. Fire up your favourite late 90'grungy power tunes and feel the angsty fervour of a generation. It is what the HE6 was made for, hurl power at it so it blasts you with wave after wave of music, you don't so must listen, you experience the music. For me this is not a smoothly relaxing headphone, it demands you engage with it, you must give yourself over to it and the music.

The bass is able to give a vigorous response and it likes to be hard and punchy. The mids are a bit on the cooler side, open sounding and just a tiny bit dry which combined with the soundstage leaves a very open and near breathy experience. The treble, like the bass it like to dazzle and show off, spectacular and attention grabbing. For me a fraction too attention seeking but it offers up a huge amount of engagement. It's a sonic thrill ride and not for the faint of ear.

The ANANDA is completely redesigned the magnets and drivers to make it more efficient and lightweight. The diaphragm in particular went thru a lot of development. I think it is a good deal, and I sold my STAX shortly after I got it.
