Precisely. The HE-400 measures ruler flat sure, but it doesn't sound so at least to my ears. Hence my original comment that the HE-400's bass isn't more "real" than the 400i. The HE-400i's bass is more in line with the rest of the frequency spectrum. Don't get me wrong though, I'd take the 400's bass over the 400i any day of the week.
