It wold SOOO easy for HFM to put a nice thick strip of memory foam under the sewn leather for the headband. This would go a long way to making this hp more comfortable IMO. The cost would almost be negligible. It the foam weren't sewn you'd see a long thread here called "jergfoam mod by Modular."

Gear mentioned in this thread:
Sure. But I'm just thinking in terms of what HFM could do themselves to polish the product during production. The mod community will always step in and improve things that are unacceptable or unfinished. The jergpads being the most prominent example.
That shouldn't matter though because of their pleather earpads.

I'm sure they will and I'm quite certain it would cost nearly double what it does now....
I've been putting a lot of (very fun) head time on my sr80i and the he400 does NOT have hot treble
I don't like closed headphones, unless its the Denons/Fostex flagships.
The AD would be too neutral for my tastes.

As a two time HE400 owner, who also loved the 990, the HE400 does have hot treble to me. I'm over headphones like that.
how bout you stop wasting your time and money on a never-ending list of 'mid-tier' headphones and save up for a sr-007 and amp? seriously, with how much you've bought and sold over recent years i reckon you lost at least half of what you could have put forth into an sr007.
