My mentality as well. I was thinking about upgrading, but why would I when Im so happy with the sound? Like I mentioned before with the right pads and EQ settings these headphones can challenge others double the price.
A little off topic story I thought some might find this interesting. I decided to EQ some really generic Nokia earphones that came with my phone seeing as I saw such good results with the EQing my HE-400. I would say I transformed the sound from $5's worth to maybe $50, maybe more. I'm astonished. The nokia headphones suffer from badly recessed mid bass, non-existent sub bass, and really poor treble extension which hampers the higher registers of vocals. Mids are congested too but not much you can do about that. By EQing downwards, I managed to effectively increase the bass by a good 12db and increase the treble at a linear rate between 6-20Khz. As a result music has much more body because of improved mid-bass and vocals benefit immensely because of the lower treble bump I assume.
I'm actually enjoying these so much I haven't even touched my HE-400 yet today. I know totally off topic but maybe this can help convince people who are on the fence about EQing their HE-400, it really works wonders.
