 Many would disagree ;) But really, cables are the very last thing I'd upgrade, you really have a great setup now so enjoy it! If you really need to keep spending money, get a bunch of tubes and tube roll. Other than upgrading headphones, you'll be getting into diminishing returns territory for your cash.
 Yes, they are new K702 pads from AKG.
Something tells me there's going to be a lot of dirt cheap vFree headsets on Amazon in 1-3 weeks...
^ could this mean we may get some impressions soon?
So has anyone other than Steve Guttenburg listened to these puppies yet?? Surely there are some fellow head-fiers out in Vegas with tablets/laptops and decent wi-fi. The suspense is killing me. I want impressions, man!
Don't worry too much, the HE-400 is still a fantastic headphone. Besides, barely anyone has given the HE-400i a really in depth listen to post any real comparisons to the HE-400. And from very early reports, it seems the HE-400i and HE-560 both have different sound signatures than any previous models, so you may not even prefer it as much as HE-400 anyway. Customs charge does suck though.
Is it only when listening with the HE-400? I've only experienced some slight distortion in the low end on a handful of tracks. And it's mostly on overproduced pop songs anyway, so I suspect it's probably in the mastering. The chorus on Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey is one example off the top of my head. It gets a tad messy.
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...
