The HE-400 and HE-4 have entirely different amping requirements.

The single digit Hifimans are extremely hard to drive (HE-4, HE-5, HE-5LE, HE-6), while the triple digit ones, are sensitive enough to be used by typical amps (HE-300, HE-400, HE-500).

I see you continue to follow in my gear-footsteps tongue_smile.gif

 

Don't forget:  Next step is to buy Q701 pads!

So, in the end, I'm gonna send the MD back, as I don't wanna hold on to them without knowinf the my Kingsound cans are coming in.

I'll keep the Plyr. The base is pretty small and thin, so I can basically take it with me , lol. A dolby headphone wireless can on the go. Woot. biggrin.gif

That's wassup. I'm still surprised you haven't purchased the X1. Do you really think the headband sizing is going to be that bad of an issue for you? I hope not because I am anticipating a review of yours in due time.

 

I was real close, after my unfortunate situation last night, but went with the Annie because it was a sound I was familiar and in love with. After I fall in love it's hard for me to move on.... tongue.gif

Yes, I am a copycat now that you mention it... biggrin.gif

 

I thought about the Q701 pads... but I haven't used them since purchasing the memory pads. I'm going to just keep using the memeory pads I ordered and sell the brand new Annie pads to anyone willing to upgrade their Q701. If no one buys them than I'll just have an extra pair.

You aren't following your name very well.

I think the only way I review the X1 is if someone sends it to me as a loaner. I can't commit to it right now, and I think if the KS-H1 ends up not being what I want, I think I should stop beating around the bush and try for the D7000 again, or at least the Fostex TH-600 which is apparently in between the D7000 and LCD2 is tonal balance. Those are my two fave cans, so it sounds appealing.

At least I know the Fostex will fit me properly.

Well, I did change from the Q701 to the Annie... rolleyes.gif

 

You should buy the memory pads from me whenever you get the Q701... they will be brand new and for a fair price compared to what AKG will charge you. That way you can change pads whenever you want. biggrin.gif

 

Edit: Don't be scared of commitment lol ph34r.gif

I say go for your favorite. How can you not? I did... tongue.gif

Problem is the timing. Kingsound is really irking me right now by not letting anyone know when they're expecting release

This long wait better be because they're trying to fix the headband assembly or keep the arm extensions from easily sliding down.

Pads from AKG are around $40 or so, right? Just about done paying off the wedding, so I'll be able to order mine after that.

Also just ordered the Annies from Pitbullaudio from ebay :D

Paid around 370$ for them.

MLE,

 

Referring to your guide @ the Denon D7000, did you review them with stock pads or Lawton Angle pads (or J$)? 

 

I actually just won auction of D7000 w/ Lawton Angle pads but, was curious how much closer the Lawton pads would get them in comparison to the Annie's for competitive play which I currently own.

 

Also, is there any way to verify manufactured date via serial # as I didn't get a response from seller in time to confirm 2012 model.

 

Thanx in advance.

That is correct.

 

Mine will be brand new out of the Annie box and will be selling for $50 plus shipping (CONUS only). I won't get my Annies until Friday so PM me if anyone is interested.

D7000 stock. I don't ever wanna mess with the D7000s sound. Don't fix what ain't broken.

The only reason I'd ever get lawton pads is because it's real leather, and will be because it's less sweaty than the pleather. If it attempts to fix anything, I'd hate the pads.

If I wanted less bass, I'd get the millions of other headphones that copy one another. The D7000 is one of the only high end headphones that thrives on it's bass.
