A knock at the front door usually elicits a smile from me, a groan from my family and loud, vicious barking from our dog. This time the knock was courtesy FedEx and HIFIMAN who have just shipped me their brand new HE1000se and HE6se headphones for review.

This combo was getting a lot of attention and it was always a challenge to slide into the driver’s seat and get some head time, but the wait was worth it as this set-up was producing some of most timbral and tonally accurate sound coupled with astonishing resolution.

The middle-aged man browsing cloud-based files was in absolutely no rush to finish his session with the Bartok, taking a good 10 minutes to critically listen to several tracks before resignedly leaving the station to make way for two impatient teens who were crowding him and couldn’t have been more than 15 years old and took another 20 minutes taking turns listening through the Bartok.

A quick intro: Scott Eastlick has been writing for AudioStream on many things music-related, creating original sonic mixes for our readers there to enjoy and to explore, and moving forward may even scribble the odd hardware review. Please welcome him here to InnerFidelity, as I thought some of the mixes he's been doing for AudioStream would be a great fit here too.

I’ve always enjoyed Campfire Audio’s relaxed and casual company culture – my experiences with them have always been from one personal audio enthusiast to another, never corporate or stiff.

I have had numerous emails and a lengthy Q&A with Dr. Fang Bian of HIFIMAN regarding the company and several of its products, but despite all this electronic back-and-forth, I was not prepared for the huge smile that greeted me from him as I came up to the HIFIMAN booth at CANJAM in the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.
