Yep, no wall wart included (or extra cable). I've yet to attach anything to the power connector because I'm running it through a powered USB hub and it seems to have plenty of juice from the connection.
 I have no higher end gear to compare it to, so I can't say if those would be better options. But I don't notice any distortion and it seems plenty powerful. I don't think I'd ever put it over 30% volume or so. 
I wouldn't normally post, but just to add another data point, my Fulla2 has no noise when turning the knob. I've been using it with my new HE400i with no problems for a few days now.
The Griffin WoodTones were posted earlier for $17 and change. I was tempted just for kicks, even though there are numerous reports of them breaking easily. They've dropped down to $14.47 now.   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DWGHTQM
I just got my 400is yesterday and don't find them bright at all. It's a very thick warm sound to me. Then again, my brain is probably still adjusting to its first planar hit.
I suppose that is the bottom line, isn't it?   I got an open box for a great deal, so I'm not worried about that. It's returnable anyway. My worry was more if I'm missing some HE400i greatness and unaware.    I'm not a high budget guy in any case. I've been using a K545 for my main listening, but now I'm working from home and can enjoy an open headphone so I picked up this and a little Fulla2 to try to upgrade things.
 This makes me nervous. I have an HE400i in the mail coming next week, but since I've never heard one (or any planar), how will I know if I got a "good" one? :-\
 Yeah, I noticed that. I assume they just grabbed some stock pics. I imagine they've sold a lot recently with their deals (like the $249 that came with an amp) so these are probably the newer version. I ordered one so I guess I'll find out in a week.
Open-box Hifiman HE400i from Buydig's ebay store for $191.25 shipped. Add to the cart to see the 15% discount.   http://www.ebay.com/itm/332067240909   Looks like there's 5 left right now.
Very generous of both of you!   https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/648352-REG/Koss_UR40_UR40_Collapsible_Stereo_Headphones.html
