Full Product Description

Frequency Response Measurement & Correction

The HiFiMan HE6se V2 headphones measure reasonably flat through the midrange. The bass starts to roll-off at 100 Hz and is down -4 dB at 20 Hz. There is a dip in the response from 1.3 kHz to 2.6 kHz which recesses the lead vocals and instruments. But there is a large peak between 3.5 kHz to 5.5 kHz making the headphones sound exceedingly bright and thin sounding out of the box.

Engaging the high-resolution convolution FIR filter provides a flat response from 20 Hz to 5 kHz +- 1dB. Smooth response with good bass impact plus a smooth top end really shows what the HE6se is capable of. Two filtersets are provided that are identical except one has 1 dB more high frequency response. This allows you to choose how much high frequency energy is arriving at your ears.

    I thought what the heck. I’d tuned the phones using both the Oratory1990 and Crinacle convolution filters via Roon but always thought they were a bit harsh and thin. Mitch’s filter however is a different story, particularly with the suggested PEQs for the low and high shelves which result in a more balanced presentation. I can now listen for hours without fatigue. I’m a happy bunny and these cans are truly the king of value.

    I was reaching for these less and less over the last several months due to the issues with their tonality, but this filter set has made them sound way more neutral and very enjoyable again. I prefer the second variety of the the filters, with the touch more top end, but the first variety is nice if you want a touch warmer sound.
