No worries. Thinking about ordering one myself along with the velour pads and a pair of the connectors.

Eh, you get over that more and more as you get more expensive cans. These arent near my most expensive, so Im not really too worried about taking them out provided that they are in a safe padded case like the HiFiMan one.

Thanks very much manbear i appreciate your reply.  I agree pretty much with your experience of Q701 to my K702. With regard to imaging in front of me, which i have a problem with, at least with the senn 650, if i place the headband forward a bit more i can get the sense of the vocals coming from just in front of me but high up, like an open air concert with stage very high up i'd say. I hope the HE 400 works for me with it's imaging, or mine? as case maybe and thanks again.

PS, can other people pipe in with their experinces of soundstage compared to 702 and 650

with regard to above post i thought i quoted post no 15652, which explains things

Just opened my 400s after a month (month long vacation) . Purchased on BF. Compared to DT990 premium 250 first impressions -

 

1) Bass is clearer and not muddy like 990

2) A lot heavier than 990

3) Treble is not harsh like 990. 

 

Anything else I should look out for? I have used 400 for about an hour or two today :)

Nice, if thats the case I wont bother getting the DT-990 Premiums. Those I was kicking around trying.

Yea I think from first impression 400's are  better than 990 but 990s are comfortable and lighter than 400.

I owned the 990's for 2 years, pretty spot on. HE-400's beat them in every way but comfort. DT990's are very comfortable.

Awesome. And with the velour pads and HD-650 head pad and a better cable Im hoping to make the HE-400's a whole lot more comfortable.

I concur, compared to my old DT-990 Pros. Though IMO the HE-400 is more comfortable as well. The DT-990 pressed against my ears more.

i re-downloaded J river media today and messed around with the dsp settings and am getting some very impressive results.  Don't know how much it will help with the normal velour or pleather pads as i'm having great results with the modded d2000 pads but its helping this headphone tremendously with vocals.

the eq preset is one i made called vocals so you will have to manually set it up

These fit the HE series like a glove. They are also not as bulky like most HP cases.
