I sold my HE 400 and kept my dt 880...
Warning: B WORD (Click to show)
That said, while the HE 400 will also be a little faster and a little tighter, I ended up keeping my DT 880. I can EQ the dt 880 to be 95% as Bass Happy as the HE 400, and my balanced dt 880 still cost me half as much as my HE 400, which had a Toxic Cable and J$ ePads
That said, I eq'd my HE 400 to have the DT 880 sound and along with it's [the HE 400] Speed and Tight Bass, but I sold my HE 400 because I need the isolation of a closed back since I primarly only listen to EDM during my time on Campus.
That and, with EQ the DT 880 was about 95% as good as the HE 400 in terms of bass, which for EDM is plenty worth it
SO I kept the DT 880 and prefer the DT 880 to the HE 400. My biggest issue with the HE 400 was the lack of upper mids... vocals sounded weird... and I'm not a fan of using eq [with the exception of EDM] my reason for this is, I don't have EQ with my portable set up and I prefer for that reason to avoid eqíng. Now portably I like to use a Bass Boosting amp when I can
SO yea, the HE 400... I sold it and kept the DT 880
