Haven't seen much talk on here regarding these newer releases from Hifiman. I've been a huge fan of the HE-500 for the last 6 or so years. It is still my favorite sound signature even with the 20+ pairs that have followed it. When the original HE-6 was still in production I didn't have much interest due to cost and limited options for amping it properly. Once I had picked up amplifiers capable of driving it properly, and rectified myself to the >$1K cost, it became quite scarce due to all the Code modding going on. Now with the HE6se I have a chance to purchase it NIB again (although at a much higher cost). I was all set to drop $1800 on the 6se when the Arya came to my attention. Now I am a bit stuck in deciding between the two. I am a big fan of extended bass, fairly neutral response leaning a shade warm if I have to pick a side, amplification is not a concern. Anyone have time with either (preferably both) of these offerings?
Thanks to anyone who might be able to provide hands on insight.
