I can assure you that you won't be dissapointed with the HE-400 if you listen mostly to rythmical music. If I didn't already have the HE-6 and an amp to drive it, I would most likely have jumped for the offer. This is because I listen to a very wide group of genres (including classical, choral, opera and pop, dance, folk/rock, world music etc.) and then the HE-500 would have been a better headphone for me.
Having the HE-6 I actually I don't think I will take advantage of this very generous offer, because the HE-400 is so good with rythmical music and I can drive it directly from my HM-801 (w/ GAME amp). In this context the HE-400 complements the HE-6 very nicely for me: It is much easier to drive and it's better for rythmical music than my HE-6 because of the extra bass. The HE-400 is an awesomely transparent and well-balanced headphone at it's price point, I think. At least compared to the AKG K701, that I sold when I ordered the 400.
