Not even in the slightest, the 400 like the HD650 are pretty pleasing and non harsh to listen to, plus open headphones are great. I love the denons to death, but the do resonate inside those cups. 400 sounds very natural at least in the presentation of the sound.

So should I try to have HeadRoom replace mine or will this thing be happening a lot? I really love the sound of the HE-400s...

My AG doubled as a waffle iron. Got those blueberry waffles were good!! Now the lyr gets about 60-65% as hot as the AG. Can't even fry a freakin' egg. frown.gif

As in, you're considering a replacement HE-400 or a different headphone?

I was asking if it's worth getting a replacement; I hope this kind of thing won't be happening all the time. I've read a lot about HE-400 build quality issues

I don't think there's much choice, is there? Your right driver isn't working; the headphone in your hands is no good to you now. So yeah, you'll need a replacement/fix. What is stopping you from contacting Headroom?

He is thinking about not getting the HE-400s again because he doesn't want to continually deal with sending them back.

Hence my earlier question: is he considering replacing the broken one with a working HE-400, or asking Headroom to replace it with another headphone? He said it's the former option he's considering.

I have found that the earcup connectors can be a little finicky. Have you tried unscrewing and rescrewing the right side?

post #4422 of 6020

I guess I'll contact HeadRoom tomorrow. Does anyone know Head-Direct's warranty policy/period?

Whenever putting the connectors on, I would always make about three counter clockwise rotations, then insert the connector and give it three clockwise turns. Then the cable was on tight and not twisted. Then take a pair of needle nose and VERY carefully tighten each side a half turn.  It always worked well for me.

+1. The right side of my cups had just unscrewed a few moments ago. It always seems to be the right side, I wonder why?

I guess I'll try that tomorrow before calling then.
