Congrats, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with listening to music on Spotify. The difference between Spotify set to high quality and FLAC is marginal and not worth the time and hard drive space needed to amass what you already have available to you now. (I love Spotify, BTW) If it sounds good to you, then enjoy it, don't worry about lossless. The only time I'd consider it is if I upgraded to the HD 800. Luckily the HE-400 is much more forgiving.
Well, I have owned the MK II and MKIII in the past and I can say that while I enjoyed the MKIII's warmth, neither of them had the dead-quiet background or spaciousness of the BHC, at least not with the HD 650. It's been a while, so I can't articulate exact differences, all I can say is I never had the "wow!" moment until I listened to the HD 650 on Crack (even with the stock tubes). Of course, I was running Amperex tubes in my Little Dots as well. Experiences could differ...
Anyone want to go ahead a sell me their HE-500 now? I'll make you a good deal...   Edit: ok, so maybe I'm just joking... Have to read impressions of the new models first.
PM sent. Also, any time frame for pre-orders on the HE-400i or HE-560?   Thanks!
They both look great! Not sure what the wood is on the HE-560. Details are still sparse, but I may place an order and try to get the HE-400i before the meet if possible. Only tidbits I've read suggests that they have a different sound signature as previous models. Someone mentioned they sound more like electrostats. If I can find the quote I'll post a link.
So is anyone planning on bringing the the newly announced HE-400i or HE-560 to the meet?? I'm tempted to pre-order the HE-400i and I haven't even read impressions yet. From my understanding they begin shipping in March... not sure if they would arrive on time, which is a shame.
^ ok, I haven't seen these pics until now. The headband looks much nicer compared to the top-down pic they released yesterday. Actually looks a bit more comfortable to wear.
 True and wise words my friend, but they may still feel funky. I'm curious how they will fit with the thin metal band and plasticy bits near the temples. All I'm sure about is that they are lighter than the HE-400 so that's nice. I could get used to the look if they sound amazing. What matters most is sound. In an effort not to stray too far, I found the link for the HE-400i thread... http://www.head-fi.org/t/698831/fresh-outta-ces-the-hifiman-he-400i-and-he-560
