I've never heard a Beyer so I don't even know...
The HE400 is just weird, it's not what I'd call bright per se, so no.
It's its own type of brightness and I'm not really a fan of it. The midrange sounds too artificial to my ears.
Heh, I'll order it and probably just steal Chase's rip of it and then keep it in mint condition for the rest of its life...
Nope, balanced doesn't really make a damn bit of difference from what I've heard.
Haha, I told you their service was good!
Let me know if you get charged though. If you don't then I'll go ahead and pre-order it too.
Or you could just do what I did and buy the official movie from Japan with English subtitles (to be released on December 12th)
Do those words look Japanese to you? O.o
No, this is the Japanese version of Saya on the left.
How much did you pay for the japanese version? From my shipping confirmation email from rightstuf, they say "We will only charge your account for items as they are shipped.". Will pre-order once I get back from dinner.
Eh.. propaganda? Which headphones have you tried both SE and balanced? The difference between the hd600 SE and balanced isn't night and day, but noticeable. I'll have the hd650s later this week as well so I can say more about SE vs balanced on them when I get to do some comparisons.
