A lot of users own HiFiMan products for a long time before they realize that the cups can swivel. Not sure you are having this issue, but if you swivel the cups, you won't have issues behind your ear. My HE-4's don't swivel very well, they are really tight, but after messing around a bit, I finally got the right amount of swivel on both sides and I don't have to mess with it anymore.

Yea it's more due to the curvature of my head. The cups do swivel but the cups still need a slight curve to them. I don't think the gap makes a big difference in my case.

Just making sure :). Back in the HE-400 thread, I remember when someone mentioned the cups swiveling and about 5 other people came in saying "holy cow, I had no idea".

Since people who own the HE-4 like to listen to dubstep, what are some favorite songs or artists?

post #1370 of 3917

I like Mala quite a bit, but honestly I am more of a Drum and Bass kinda guy.

I wonder if After Market HE 400 cups would fit the HE 4, and will the new ePads improve the sound of all the old and new models?

I don't think changing the cups would make much of a difference since the HE-4 is pretty darn open and they probably aren't causing much resonance to begin with, but it is always worth a try.

Yeah I didn't think they would really change the sound. I am surprised that people aren't also selling custom grills as well.

Yup, I like asthetics, hence is why i like custom cables. Plus it does change the sound through the power of the MIND

Love Feed Me and Culprate, will have to check out Liquid Stranger.

 

The HE-4 is a huge step up from the HE-400 for all genres, IMO.

So before I bought the HE-4, I heard people talk about them having somewhat "hot treble" when you listen to certain songs. I was wondering

what songs those are. I don't know if I have heard it and I just don't mind it or I just don't listen to the right music :veryevil:

For me it's any old Reaggae or Jazz, you can hear the artifacts from the presses. Most, well all of my OLD stuff is Vinyl rips

Can't find any info on him or his services. Does he have a website?
