:D getting excited about my Rev 3 HE 400 ^^, btw q.q what are teh measure ments of the REV 3 >.>
in addition I REALLY hope it sounds better than my DT 990 with edm [it should with all that SUB bass]
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
FYI Rev. 4 is the same as Rev. 2, as in they returned to the second driver/tuning after the Rev. 3 fiasco. Driver housing color is slightly more transparent white if I read correctly, but they are essentially the same.
I don't think anyone's actually A/B tested a pre-yellow driver and a post-yellow driver yet, so we only have the word from Hifiman, as well as some...not awfully reliable impressions (including mine).
Hi Justin, since you chimed in here, was wondering if you could clarify something for me: I'm between getting the HE-400 and HE-500 and am wondering if the HE-500 still comes with the black travel/carrying zipper case it was shipping with for quite some time or if they've changed it back to the 'storage box' now? I would want one of those add-on carrying cases if I were going to order the HE-400 (which I know it's not included with), so trying to take all the implied costs of that model into account.
Around the same overall volume, HE400 has more bass, period. It's just the nature of its FR relative to its big bro. HE500 extends a lot better in the sub-bass region, but that does not contribute to bass quantity or impact at all.
Thanks, If you were to EQ the bass can they produce about the same amount?
