Who is the person replying to you via ebay channel? Headdirect people I've contacted via email were all very compliant and reasonable about small things like subbing pads without extra cost.

This might mean that if the Hifiman pads are sealed better, like how Audeze does their pads, the subbass extension will be close~equal.

Thats an interesting point u mention here..but u know whats funny..the other day i read somewhere here on the forum that a company is working on better pads for the he400..so its already a work in progress..damn..i need to find that thread again.. biggrin.gif

Well..i have a hm602 that i bought in july last year..and last week the charger body broke in two...but when i contacted them for an exchange ( even sent pics on their request)..as it was clearly not a abuse situation..they said as its more then 1 year old i have no right for a replacement..i bought it 23 juli..so 1 year and 2 months ago.so i hoped theybwould be more flexible...so..nope..for me they were not very service minded. I hoped as its not expensive part (20 dollars) they would replace it as being a technical problem.. mad.gif

I still think that $20.00 (including shipping) is a steal for the pads.  Here in the U.S., I paid $10.00 for my velour pads and only about $6.00 in shipping - if I recall correctly.  I'll make an order again a little bit down the road, as it appears their shipping is fixed at $6.00.  I'll just order 3 pair to really make it worth while. wink.gif

                                                                                                   NEW HE-400 ANYONE?

 

 

     Just thought i'd put this out there for anyone reading this thread and wanting a NEW REV3 HE-400 with velours and pleathers nicely discounted.. I had a rev2  set  i just exchanged/or upgraded to a REV3 because the rev2 had a rattle in the right driver and it was only a month old still under warranty.

 

I purchased the rev2 set in a  package deal here at head-fi from a member that was selling the HD-650 and HE-400 only a month old for each pair..I pounced on the deal  only wanting  the HD650 being that both were selling at a great deal i purchased them both knowing that i'd turn around and resell the HE-400 because i already have that set but hey i had to have the HD-650 at a phenomenal price.

 

So if anyone is interested pm me before later today i put the set up for grabs with pictures in the buy or sell thread and i'm sure it won't last for long for 365.00 shipping included anywhere in usa.

i am just about to order the he-400(even included it in my sig. :P:) so should i hold off for the rev.3 or rev.2 is better?

post #5380 of 6020
Lol, there is NO Rev. 3 anymore. They went back to Rev. 2.

Again, people need to stop with this Rev 3 silliness.

Ohh ok call it whatever you want but it could even be called fourth version or 3.5 but in the end it's the latest iteration of the driver housing changing in color and yes from the horses mouth ALLEGEDLY it's the revision2 driver, "latest iteration". I wonder which Mylar membrane for a diaphragm they chose this time around in this latest clear color housing dubbed rev2 with housing change and sound signature ??..

Lets just call this last revision or revert of the HE-400 just that LATEST ITERATION!

Yeah envy is right there is an original rev2 and this latest iteration of rev2 and im not sure if there is any absolute certainties here but for what its worth neither sound the same even though there is one first version rev2 and now this latest iteration rev2..There was another revision that was of a sandy colored housing with a Pierrcing treble shelve but it was allegedly reverted back to rev2 or maybe even something else lol. The sandy color housing revision was dubbed rev3 by members here and not hifiman..

How's all that for confusion lol.

So as of now there should be only revision2 latest iteration and maybe some original rev2 but the so called rev3 were pulled from distributers shelves everywhere.

it's rev1 (black drivers, sound cuts out) -> rev2 (white drivers, good) -> rev "knife to your ears" (yellow drivers, terrible treble ringing) -> rev2 "post-drama" (transparent white drivers, good).

 

The post-recall rev2s IMO sound a bit faster with substantially better sub-bass extension compared to early rev2 units.

 

Funny thing is 90% of big website reviews of HE400s at the moment are all of rev1 HE400s, which were VERY dark with dim treble, compared to the later HE400s. So people who rely entirely on those kinds of reviews will buy these expecting a sound even more dark-sounding than LCD2r1s, while they sound the exact opposite with current revision.

Really? What happened to it? Did the Rev. 3 exist then was discontinued in favor of the Rev. 2?

Rev. 3 was recalled. If you got it, you could get it replaced.
