i agree these cans are pretty great (for headphones) on bassy stuff, the layering is awesome...but if i want to really do bass music there's nothing like a proper hi-fi :)

I'm sorry to anounce I'm selling the HE400 including the J$s. I still love them, but I don't use them. I haven't touched them once this entire month!
So if anyone the EU is interested let me know! I could ship outside the EU, but it's probably cheaper to just buy them new...
Thujone, even though you are my arch enemy and a complete jerk, I heeded your advice and picked up the HE-400 as a kind of bridge on the journey to the HE-500. In conclusion, screw you.
I see your wallet and I are soon to have a more damaging relationship than our own...

^^ Not quite sure I understand your question. The he400 doesn't need a whole lot of power to sound very good. It does scale up some with better gear, but the return for the money is small. For listening to EDM you've probably already got what you need in the Sound Blaster. You'd see some improvement with the fiio17 but again, it would be modest.
For gaming questions, you'll better served asking on MLE's thread.

I'm fairly certain that the optical output in itself completely bypasses the soundcard. Outputting digital audio means that the soundcard isn't actually doing anything.
I've tried the Norse and Q Audio cables and liked them both. Honestly, I don't hear a ton of difference with cables but there have been a few situations where I've been able to hear an appreciable difference. I think that you'd do better with a pad swap to address the treble issue or try some EQ.
I like custom cables for custom length, build quality and usability. They ones that I buy are much softer and more flexible than the stock cable.
Why aren't you just asking this in the gaming thread? They'd be able to answer your question right away, especially since it's a console question.
I'm starting to like the HE-400 more than my beloved HD 650. Especially with electronic music and classical.
Only downside is that they are far less forgiving on lossy music than the Senns.
Edit- I haven't lurked here for a while, so sorry if this is redundant!
