Looking to recable my HE-400s soon. Considering either navships SPC or stripped down mogami 2534. Don't know which braid to use, don't know what size techflex/paracord, and don't know which connectors to use. Any help?
Sorry to bug about pads again, but has anyone done a comparison of all the possible pads for the HE-400. Like HM5s, pleather, velour, jerg, and this http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-Momentum-Black-Headphone/dp/B00AYT62FO/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1374394640&sr=1-2&keywords=momentum, etc.
Hey don't let anyone tell you otherwise. The HE-400s with the modi/magni is a solid set up. I like it a lot. The only thing you have to worry about after that is pads; there are a lot of options and opinions: HM5, Velour, Pleather, Jerg, Lawton Angle, etc. I don't even know... All I've tried is pleathers, which are good but I want to try something else. Lawton pads look promising.
Having some minor problems with the stock velour pads.They sound pretty good, but they aren't the most comfortable; they fit sort of awkwardly. My D2000 used to fit my head perfectly and I didn't have any comfort issues. Has anyone tried Denon pads or Lawton Audio pads on the HE-400s? Is there anything better than stock velour?
Whoa! I just did some research on the 4S dac/amp.. Its one of the best out there out of all mobile phones. Well if I'm going to get an E07K or an E17 it has to be justified. Listening to my HE-400s out of my 4S sounded just fine to me. Subjectivity aside, is the E07K's amp output objectively better than the 4S?
How does the E07K sound with the HE-400? I just got a pair with a Schiit Magni and am using them with my Xonar DG. I love them! I tried plugging them into my 4S and it sounded fine to me, I don't know why everyone says these things need an amp. Anyway maybe its because I've only had them for a day and I can't really tell at this point. I was thinking maybe I should pick up an E17 for use as a DAC with my PC ( I think my Xonar DG sounds great, but maybe an E07K will be...
