for edm it is my can of choice :D, 

Yes, but gave them to my father and now he uses my Aune T1 to listen to the W1000x. That's why I'm buying the Burson HA-160DS so he can take the Aune T1. Normally I live in Holland and my parents in Spain so it's easier that way ;-)

I suppose so, oh well more HE 400 goodness for me, and honestly I kinda like it all, although... I just prefer a little bright treble to cut again'st nice delicately thick mids and KICKIN bass. But I actually :O discovered something today :O the 4th song to use the 150 hrz low mid NICELY! which means I gave my he 400 eq a +3 bump in 150, brining it from -8 to only -5 :D it is still how ever the MOST ... eq'd DOWN frequancy. As for EDM I think it sounds horrible! It's a VERY meaty low mid, and it draw attention away from the KICk and PUNCH of bass in mid bass heavy cans, as it's soften the bass. It adds .... decay to the bass... I dunno it's just a very soft THICK Upper Mid low bass thingy that I can't stand! It's just... too much in the middle of upper bass and low mids

 

how ever, I added it back a LITTLE bit, as I found another core n bass song that had a nice meaty 180bp KICK drum hitting around that frequancy... so I'm one step closer to the perfect eq of these :3

Is the HE-400 good with the schiit magni?

 

Would be using TITANIUM HD to a schiit magni to he-400.

 

 

currently want the he-400 as an upgrade my pro 550s

post #13324 of 17927

Yes, it supposed to be good. You can search this thread to read some impressions about the Magni and HE-400. Lots of people had that combo!

post #13325 of 17927

The Magni is perfect for the HE-400 :)

I really dig the WHAT SIBILANCE setting on my iTunes EQ! This phone just keeps getting better and better. Would the HE-500 be even better :tongue:

The MD is much more flat and closer to neutral. Very linear with regard to the bass region. Some people think the MD is bass light because they are used to some coloration of the bass. The MD will hit and hit hard with dub or hard bassline music.

Boy, I just found out about a program called Amarra and it's awesome. Better sounding than iTunes for sure. They have a EQ preset called Treble Reducer and now I love my HE-400 even more. Now I have to buy Amarra after the 15-day trial ends. Sigh. :o

Now we're thinking certain programs surely sound better than other programs.  Pretty good.

post #13330 of 17927

Meh  - I like Foobar because it has low processor overhead, plus no annoying library crap that gets corrupt eventually, or doesn't organize half my S***. Lots of the plug-ins are actually useful as well.

The mod requires cutting holes under the pleather pads.

So its not reverseable if i put brand new pads on?

 

Lets say i have bought a pair of jerg mod pads, you dont have to modify that actual headphones do you? meaning i could switch between the jergmod and stock pads, and when i put the stock pads on the hp is back to 100% stock.? right?

Are you talking about reversible to the headphone or the earpads themselves?  Since it's just an earpad mod I don't see how it would affect the headphone.

i was basically asking if its a earpad mod only lol. im not technically inclined to do the mod, but i was possibly gonna buy a he-400 and then buy some jerg modded pads from someone.
