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.
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.
My HE400 is on the selling block if anyone's interested. Upgraded me to an HE4 and doing the HE400 no justice with so much time just sitting. If anyone is interested:
