Enough OT I guess.

New member here - I just ordered a pair of HE-400 (and the velour pads) which should be arriving next Tuesday. Quite excited - from what I've read, these should be quite an upgrade from my ATH-M50s. I will be posting my impressions once they arrive.

Welcome! You will definitely love these :L3000:

They should definitely be a different flavor at the very least. :)

Welcome. 1 year ago I did same, I upgraded to HE400 from ATH-M50s. To be honestly nothing is comparable, HE400 is much better to all kind of section. You will love it. But just remember, this can needs an amp. First I bought Fiio E11 which is quite good for the price and then 2 months ago I upgraded to Meier Corda 2Stepdance.

Right now, I'm going to be running it from my Xonar DG. It has an amp, but I realize it won't be ideal. Still looking around at options for amp (and possibly DAC if I think I need).

you could try and O2 Amp.Dac combo. Many users here on head fi sell them for about $200 or so used, some times less!

I think the NFB15.32 DAC/amp might be a better choice than the ODAC/O2 amp setup for HE400; the 15.32 has a lot more output power, and its DAC is warmer-sounding apparently. The pricings are comparable.

What about Schiit Modi/Magni, Little Dota MK1+, or Fiio E17/E09?

A Modi and LD mk 1+ would sound pretty sexy, those tube mids with all that bass... the tube should help with the highs too

The Fiio E17 sounds fine on it's own with the HE400's, the Modi/Magni sounds great as well (I'm probably getting this soon)

I'd give them a spin with the Xonar first though to see what you think. Sound is very subjective and people like different things, the sound with the Xonar might suit you just fine.

Don't look to change components for the heck of it. There's always something to upgrade in the world of headphones, you have all the time in the world.

PS: These will be an enormous upgrade over the M50's (I own the M50's and the HE400's). The HE400's do everything better from lows to mids to highs, it's a much more detailed and engaging sound then with M50's.

Aune T1 also sounds great with them. But haven't tried them with anything else yet although Burson HA-160DS is coming.

Dude is the Aune T1 a Tube dac and amp? I think a Tube Dac and a Solid State Amp would be a neat combo!
