$699 + free s/h


These need a solid amp to get the best out of them. These also have the latest headband, which is not only much softer, more comfy but does not rely on rubber tension for clamping power, so it should be much more reliable.

It also comes in a new color and box is marked Adorama exclusive

I've had the HE6SE and preferred the Verum 1. The HE6SE is a bit more dark for my liking and lacking in sparkle, but both do scale higher with a speaker amp.

When I was in the market for one, all I read was the horror stories about people with the Sundaras, but I couldnt pass up the Sundaras for $275 (no tax) open box directly from hifiman. It has been 3 months and so far so good, I know there is an echo chamber about hifiman with their qc issues but the build quality seems to be equal to my x2hrs.
Thanks for the info. Enjoy your cans!

HE6 has huge potential. Depends on how good your AMP are, it can even beat LCD4.
I have the HE-400 and the LCD 2. Not the same as these, but I can say the LCD2 are better. If you got to spend 700, I would go with Audeze first. Schiit Magni and Modi stack, is a great and affordable amp DAC combo.

The Emotiva Bas-X A100 is Class A/B and provides incredible power output at an affordable price. Will this do the trick?

Power Output (headphone output; direct drive mode)
(requires internal jumper; USE WITH CAUTION):
8 Ohms: 50 watts / channel
33 Ohms: 12 watts / channel
47 Ohms: 8.5 watts / channel
150 Ohms: 2.6 watts / channel
300 Ohms: 1.3 watts / channel
600 Ohms: 0.6 watts / channel
Well, do you connect headphones to the speaker output of the amp?

I do with my se v1 to my onkyo m504 using homemade speaker taps.

With the basx you don't have to since you can open it up and set the jumper on the headphone jack to get full power.

Some of the headphones costs hundreds of dollars and for some damn reason they glue the earpads on them as if they were disposable.

I wonder if that is the case with these, if so I'm not interested.

E: Looks like they are replaceable with a new set costing $50 which is not bad at all.

There is an internal jumper on the Bas-X A100 that allows the headphone jack to receive the full power of the amp. Using it with the jumper to drive HiFiMan HE560 and Sennheiser HD650.

Hot take: have played this hifi game many years and figured out that amps and dacs are a solved problem, $100 gets you top tier subjective performance. Fight me

On topic: sundara is hifiman's winner, if I'd go audeze/focal if I were looking to spend more

Depends on how loud you listen. My schiit jot is close to the 789 in terms of power and it feels a bit starved for power...

From what I read they are amazing. I just got the Sundaras so I can't justify buying a new pair of headphones yet...
I am in the exact same position.
