Every poster after this post is a dummy, and should migrate to the other thread promptly.

Why? This thread has more posts.

Generally, long threads are often locked at Forums - uses more resources.   And people are much less likely to read any of the posts if the thread is really long.

^This, and the fact that this thread was intended as a quick announcement / hype thread (just look at the thread title / first posts), but no one was courageous enough to make a properly titled HE400 discussion thread until Matt converted his review thread to one. Also, the vast majority of people and HE400 discussion traffic occurs in that thread now, so any questions/discussions in this thread end up being brief and fairly isolated.

 

edit: D'OH I fell for my own trap, now I'm a dummy too. mad.gif

One member made an appreciation thread but we all shot it down. Down with appreciation threads!

Doesn't seem to be the case for Head Fi.

Hey guys,

 

I was looking to get a set of these for indoors listening (already have a pair of portable ATH-ESW9s).

 

I was just wondering if my FiiO E07K portable amp/dac would be enough to drive these relatively well.

 

I have just enough money for these and would really like to avoid having to get an amp just because of these.

 

Penny for your thoughts?

The E07k is a fairly weak amp. However, the HE400 sounds good off practically anything. I doubt youd hate them off it.

Alright, thanks.

 

I'm just getting started on this world of hi-fi, so trying to wade in slowly... lol

 

You guys weren't kidding when you said "sorry about your wallet" >.>

they sound really good off my E17, and even straight off the ipod they are listenable (if not great).  off the ipad, which has a bit better amp, they sound reasonable.  i actually prefer the sound from my E17 to my onkyo receiver, but i prefer my very old school sony receiver to the E17...

the biggest difference the amp makes IMO (other than volume of course) is adding bass and opening the soundstage.  i can't wait for my desktop to be finished cause i think it will sound awesome, but in the meantime a small amp is by no means a problem and you will love these cans i'm sure!
