**Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread** - Page 826

Im very close to your opinion as well.

While I have a few isues (minor) with this HP, It has so much good in it for the Price that I doubt I can want to get a better HP (thou I do want a HD600 for more relaxing moments).

 

Everytime I look at the Dream HP (stax, HD800, etc), I wonder shortly after why would I want to upgrade considering Its been months and I still Love this HP.

 

I do belive it improves with modding, and I have been trying to get to it for 2 months now... but everytime i get this HP is to listen to it :D.

The he400 plus the hd6x00, makes for a very nice complementary pair of hp's. The only flaw in the pair is if you need a closed hp. But as far as complementary signatures go, they work very well together.

You guys have convinced me - I just ordered my pair :D

Indeed. Eager to hear what all the praise is about.

First thing to do when you get them is test them for a few hours, then EQ them and then do the Jerg mod and see how much better they are :D

Is it easy disassemble the HE400?

post #12384 of 17711

What does the foam mod do? Can't seem to find a page that has all the mods. Also, does the jerg mod help the treble chill out a bit? Sometimes my ears hurt from these guys.

Hi guys,

 

I'm looking to buy these but first need help on which DAC/AMP to get for them. Right now I have the Fiio E10 with the Philips Fidelio X1 and the Ultrasone Pro 900.

 

I'm think to either buy the Aune T1 or the Schiit Magni/Modi. Which one would be better? Or is there maybe an even better option out there?

 

Thanks in advance!

Also, I just want to say that I switched from hd650 to these because I listen to mostly electronic. And omfg. I'm sitting here listening to Boards of Canada in my office, literally tears are in my eyes. Thank you Hifiman!!!! 

 

Hey what gain setting should i use on the he-400 with the fiio e09k? high or low

post #12387 of 17711

I just Jergpaded my HE-400s.

Thanks to Jerg for the mods.

 

After some months listening all the pads modes:

 

Jergpad Mod v2.0 > stock pleather > stock velours ... (IMHO)

 

The ‘VELOUR-TOP’ MOD is genius., pleather bass with the velour comfort.

 

Thanks again to Jerg.

 

 

 

PD: I feel my setup is complete, HE400 + Jergpad Mod + iDAC.

What foam mod? The first step of the jerg mod helps tame the treble quite a bit. In order to do this mod, you must remove the foam ring.

Ok I just removed the foam part (not going for the full blown jergmod quite yet, as I don't have the velour pads). I'm just wondering why the manufacturer would stick the foam in there, if the treble (or sound in general) is better without it. Can anyone answer this question?

I remember someone mentioned that Hifiman probably stuck it there to help distance our ears from touching the driver. The pleather material compressed a lot when being worn. It's a pretty poor attempt imo by Hifiman, they just should have made the pads themselves thicker. But costs probably have something to do with it.
