The 400 may go as "deep" as the LCD-2, but it does so with not a fraction of the authority. That driver might be vibrating, but the party isn't making its way down my ear canal. 



The RS1 has a strong mid bass presence to me.  Sure the bass and sub bass aren't very prominent but I wouldn't call the RS1 bassless.  All I am saying is that the 400i is a mix of the RS1 and LCD-2 sound.  very good bass and sub bass extension like the LCD-2, a bit of a mid bass hump like the RS1, mids are not as flat as the LCD-2 but not as prominent as the RS1, and the treble is also the same as it has the extension of the LCD-2 but a bit brighter.  Not quite as bright as the RS1.
