To make sure is this the revision 3.5 / revision 2?

 

700

 

 

 

Will see if test headphone for a while then will contact Hifiman if the problem still exist.

 

From the pic it looks like the very latest.

You guys'll be the ruin of me. Ordered the HE-400s last night. Was only after ordering that I realized I could be stung for 20% import tax. What's even more worrying is that I don't care biggrin.gif

Gotta get my hands on an old amp/receiver now asap.

Took a chance myself, but it went through nicely. Had HeadDirect label the package as low-cost/gift. They'll do it no problem if you let them know (If you ordered from there, that is, and they haven't shipped yet) :)

How are these with rock?
post #5151 of 6017

^^ I really haven't found the them to do any music genre poorly. I like some older rock, Smashing Pumpkins and such and these are great with it.

I'm with Matt on this one. I've tried alot of different rock/metal genres now and for me it really comes down to the quality of the recording and sound engineering. Some rock-recordings are just decent while some are outright amazing (i.e. "Muse - 2nd law"). In general i really like the HE-400's precise bass for most rock-recordings because it makes the soundstage seem less muddy and allows more emphasis on distortion guitars and vocals IF the recording allows it.  So it can be hit and miss in rock-genres for me, but generally it kicks ass :)

HeadAmp has a 10% discount offer + free shipping. In fact Moon Audio has 10% discount as well, but no free shipping.

Dang that's cheap, cheaper than how much most people are selling second-hand HE400s here on HFi F/T forums even.

Talk to @[justin w.] and he will probably give you a coupon for the discount. Thanks to him for offering me this price!

 

He's a newly authorized dealer of Hifiman products.
