Hi everyone, I recently joined the hd6xx drop but I'm interested in planars especially at this price point. Is it worth buying both??

Yes! These are great deal.. much more aggressive/forward than 6xx... the build on 4xx is good as well. I have both and they compliment each other...

Okay great I reckon I'll go for it! What amp/dac are you using to drive the hd6xx and he4xx?

I have an aune t1se with gain set on 2 and that works great with both cans. I also have a nuclear power plant ( Burson Virtuoso with burr brown 1793 dac ) schiit stack for 200 bucks would also do well, but i prefer warmer amps and dacs

Damn that's one hell of a setup hahaha. Thanks so much for your replies, there's so many options and I don't know what to get. Any thoughts on the xDuoo TA-01? It seems that it can provide the best of both worlds by handling high and low impedance headphones.

Yeah, i hear ya... i have thousand of hours logged on “research” LoL Ta-01 is interesting but i would probably grab a schiit vali 2 and a modi dac for a little xtra. Then u can play around with different dac and amps down the road or u can grab an aune t1se for about the same price as the Ta-01. I think u can get a t1 right now on ebay for about 175ish. Stock tube on t1 is great! btw... t1 uses tube to color the dac and uses ss amp. Vali is hybrid tube amp.

Hmm interesting options thank you! Yes I was just researching the Aune t1se earlier. Unfortunately because I live in New Zealand, the shipping costs are a significant factor in what I buy :( making the Aune t1se $100 NZD more expensive than the discounted Ta-01 on massdrop at the moment. This is probably a stretch in my already stretched budget that even I can't justify hahaha. Schiit products aren't on amazon (or are hidden because they don't ship to NZ from amazon perhaps) making them much less accessible :( Shipping from their website is 40 - 50 NZD which is not horrific but like I said, I'm stretching the budget already haha. That being said, It seems the Schiit Fulla 2 is the exact same price, shipped, as the Ta-01. I don't know whether this has enough power for the hd6xx I'm expecting though. Thank you very much again for your valuable insight!
