Is the treble smoother on the HE4?

 

Hmmm I wonder if it would run from my NAD 326bee speaker jacks... Maybe not a good idea...

Sidetracking for a second, have you been legally blind your whole life? I'm just thinking, I've always heard when you lose one sense, especially a major one like vision or hearing, the other senses all become stronger. So, you must hear a lot more than the rest of us folks here.the only reason I asked if it has been since birth, is to figure out if you had a comparison to before and after loss of sight. If this is rude in any way I sincerely apologize.

... yea pretty much I was not BORN blind but my folks let me fall into a Bucket of bleach when I was like 2-3? I kinda do not remember if but I've been blind as crud ever since [OBVIOUSLY I mean BLEACH in my little 2 year old eyes... yea that was BAD]. Doc says my visions is that of a 40 year old man, and for the LONGEST time I didn't have glasses [which is scary] But my vision has always sucked, as has my sense of smell and taste... being allergic to Mold sucks when you live in a moldy house, not to mention allergies to Pets when you have 4 dogs soo... yea since I was a kid I [and I still can't] smell, see or taste worth a damn 

 
All I got is HEARING and FEELING left baby!

I'm trying to, visit my blog if you can :D I'd love to get more readers. Trying to flesh out a more professional tone to my reviews [mostly in the formatting] as well as getting a good process going. I got a little rushed with my AD900X review today, didn't have much time to burn them in before I reviewed them [although they sounded great ouf of the box, still they need some burn in time]

Hello I bought a cable from toxic cables ,Cryo OCC Stranded Silver / Copper Cable Unsleeved for my HE 400.
Somebody of you using it?

You think it might be good for the HE400? Or I have to change the type of cable? I had read in a review that the best results was the cable silver plated and not pure silver.

 

thanks

Depends on how old they are as to which pad types they'll have - all the older renditions had the original pads without removable mounting rings and had some sort of plastic tabs:

I'd suggest making a 'wanted' or for trade as in the classified.  You may want to message MattTCG as he's heard the jergpads on his former HE-4.  His impressions were positive I believe.  Since they are on sale over at headamp.com for $349, you may be able to sell your HE-400 and fund most of the cost of getting a new HE-4, but you may have to get some replacement pads first.

I'd rather just trade straight up, but, I'm completing my magnum build as soon as the drivers get here from Singapore, and for all I know I won't like them. So I could easily sell those to fund a he4 purchase. Then, I could side by side them with the 400, which may be a better decision for me in the first place...man, this obsession will definitely never end...and I like that.

That does sound like the better option, then you can know for sure how they compare side by side and determine which is best.  I've not heard a Magnum yet but I'm thinking about trying the StratoKOSSter mod out for fun...maybe after my misadventures in T50RP modding. :p
