Listening to my new HE-400's now out of the Audio gd 15.32. Amazing is all I can say, the bass is soo nice. Never have I heard as many bass details as this before in my rock. I have no problem with the treble on these. I've brought and have got the velour pads on right now. Velour sounds better to my ears, at least it sounds more balanced. Enjoying the sheer speed, imaging and detail of these for sure. Metal never sounded so quick, but then again I'm coming from a lower Sennheiser which are a bit slow I guess.
I do have some comfort issues with the weight, but I mostly listen while in a large office chair so I've taken to putting my hear on a pillow while I listen.
My parents think I'm insane for spending what I did, but I at least paid for it from money I got at P/T work.
I would have found out about the quality available if it were not for a headfier (well a headfiers brother) I met locally here
