I think I was telling him about the HE4 before he got it himself, IIRC. I'm one of the few original HE4 owners.
It saddens me to see how overlooked it was... damn HE6...

MLE, I have been remiss in thanking you but you know what my wallet says right ?
Hey, thanks for posting this. This was the Headfonia review of 2011 right ? I was bummed out after reading this but then I went back to Head Direct's writeup and consoled myself with the thought that I have the Mjolinir.
I'm very excited to hear your thoughts on HE-400 vs HE-4. Things like how the bass compare, does the HE-4 reach the HE-400s level (texture, thump, extension)? The midrange openness, treble smoothness, soundstage, etc.. And if the HE-4 is able to dethrone the HE-400 at being the king of EDM.
Anybody have any idea how long Justin will have them for sale?
The jergpads by Modular offer the same improvements for the he4 as they do for the 400.
That seller misquoted the Revision. Rev 3 is the revision that was recalled (black driver) because of treble issues. I PM'd the user in that FS thread and told him to get rid of the "Rev 3" tag he was putting on his Rev 4 white drivers. There should be no Rev 3's floating around from what I understand.
This description of the he4 is right on target. It seems that with the right amp, mini he6 is a fair description. It doesn't have the spike in the treble that the he400 does but has consistently more treble energy across the upper end. For some, that will be wonderful. There are a few moments that you have with hp's and gear. For me, I will never forget the bass on the he4 with the sx1280 amp. Pretty sure that I wet my pants.
The original HE-400 had the black drivers and was recalled because of driver failure problems. Rev.2 had white drivers and was just fine, Rev. 3 had sandy-colored drivers and was recalled for treble problems. Rev. 4 has clear drivers and is fine.
Whoops. Got brown and black mixed up.
Ahh then mine is REV 2 as the drivers are white
