I would be interested in testing your EQ if you could post the settings file here please, its a bit hard to replicate it, thanks.

 

I made another one last night I will post the file, is it possible to upload files to the forum? If not I will upload it somewhere else and post a link to the download.

I have never heard anything like these headphones for trance, drum&bass, hardstyle.... They are good at other genres but they are MADE for electronic music!

Not sure you can upload here, just post a link to sendspace or mediafire.

Will do that tomorrow, I will upload the file with the points plotted on it then you can adjust it how you want, just don't change the shape much. Not sure how much variation there is between different revisions of HE400, I have the white grille ones with jerg modded leather pads. Should be about the same unless you have the rev.1.

Yeah +1 on electronic music for these badboys. That bass is ferocious and the layering and space is so cool. makes for one hell of a journey through space and time.

 

 

my amperiors are also a great electronic can for anyone who is interested. The bass is more punchy than he-400 but not nearly on the same level of quality as the 400, obv. still very engaging and delicious sound through just an iphone

Hi...thanks for the efforts in providing this for us.  One small thing I need help with.  Downloaded the Electri-q program and installed, but only get one plugin - dsp_electriq.dll  Don't see the dsp_electriq (posihfopit edition).dll anywhere.  Any idea where it could be found?  

 

Thanks,

Darren

You need to download and install both standard and poshopit edition, open the standard program change window size then close. After than use poshopit only. Put the .dll in your foobar > components folder.

Sorry for being a bit thick...but when I go to the link provided it only provides one download option for an .exe file.  Don't see the poshopit version shown independently.  This is the link provided, correct?

Thanks again for your help.  Total newbie here with first set of phones :-)  HE-400 with Schitt Modi/Magni

You should install the standard one and also the poshopit one and put both the .dll files in the foobar components directors.... When you install the standard one it asks you where you want to install the program and the VST file. You need to put that into foobar. poshipit is just a .dll I IIRC. So put that in the same place then open it in the taskbar using the VST wrapper tray icon.

Right...understand that, but I don't see where to get the poshopit one?  Not sure if it is supported or offered any more based on the wording on the site as there is only one download available.

 

Any place else to get it?

 

Cheers,

Darren

If you want to change the frequency response on the HE400 you can make them sound almost however you want because the drivers are good to excellent with all frequencies, especially the bass.
This is a good point. The 400 responds better to EQ than any hp I've personally owned. I wonder if all planar phones respond as well to EQ.

With the he500 and with the jergpadds by modulor 2.5 u dont have the need to change anything by eq...as its already a balanced phone...the he300 i also owned, was a very dark relaxed phone...i think u have to equalize a lot to change that signaturebut i think people buy that phone just because it sounds like that...so that group doesnt need to eq also..but the he400 has peaks on both sides of the audio spectrum..so that hp is very sensitive to eq..and i understand it does wonders to the he400..
