Yeah that's something I feared. I have a lot of pop/dance tracks and neutral headphones may not pair too well. I'm now more eager than ever to hear about the HE-400i's sound signature. Looking forward to more impressions...
Don't worry dude I trust you. I must have gotten the idea from your posts, but I believe I was the first to actually make the modded pads as you can see from my links. Anyway I didn't mean to start something lol, it's not like Hifiman will actually send the person with the original idea/implementation a pair?
That would be me no? Well at least I put it into practice first My original post about the idea: http://www.head-fi.org/t/604583/hifiman-he-400-impressions-and-discussion-thread/6930#post_9134300 And when I put my idea into practice: http://www.head-fi.org/t/604583/hifiman-he-400-impressions-and-discussion-thread/7245#post_9154429 IIRC Jerg also credited me in his thread for the idea. So can I get a free pair of HE-560/HE-400i now Mr. Fang?
Nice pics phillyd. I really can't get over how beautiful the HE-300's color scheme is, silver on black is my favorite color pairing for gadgets. My laptop, monitor, amp, and dac are all silver and black and the HE-300 would blend in so well. But the HE-400 will have to do :)
