I just bought a set of HE-400s with velour and hybrid pads to try. Can't wait to get my hands on these 'phones!
 Exactly my thoughts. While I'm perfectly satisfied with the amount of bass in the DT990 Pro, it's definitely not the bass monster I thought it was going to be based on the hype. The treble is also a lot more even and less piercing than I was expecting, and this is coming from a guy who's sensitive to piercing treble.
Got a pair from the Amazon sale before they shot back up to $200 within days of ordering mine. Enjoying them quite a bit so far. I pretty much bought them just for gaming but jeez, they might just become my go-to everything headphone.
Denon AH-D400: Bought these for $80 when they were on sale through Newegg. They're not bad for the price but I later bought the UE 6000s from Daily Steals on impulse ($40 for a refurbished pair that looks practically brand new. Score!) and I never use them anymore.   UE 4000: Ditto.   Xbox One Stereo headset: Again, not too bad, got a refurbished pair with the chat adapter (what I really wanted) for $40 but now I have a set of Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pros which are just...
 Speaking for myself, I don't hate Beats headphones, at least not because they have the Beats logo on them, anyway. Personally, I don't like this particular advertisement but I don't take offense with the headphones themselves. I'd never recommend them to anyone who wants a good pair of headphones because the price is way too high for what you get, in my opinion. They're not inherently bad, but you can have better (if less stylish) for much less.
Well it's a good thing the O2 + ODAC isn't a low end Amp/DAC. It's got a low end price tag and high tier performance.
Well, I won't comment on the expert opinions but I will say that I went ahead and bought the D400s as I couldn't resist giving them a shot at the price and so far I think they were $80 well spent. Now, if I'd paid $200+ or *shivers* retail for these, I'd be quite disappointed as they don't sound good enough to justify that kind of investment but for $80? They sound great. I read the critique calling the bass overwhelming and the mids and highs dull and...
Agreed. It was my first significant headphone purchase and, for a long time, I convinced myself they were good. And then I heard good headphones.
