My HD650 definitely sound better with the right genre, specifically my Coldplay or Norah Jones collection. Even with the Magni (I returned the Vali since it brought the HD650 too dark and warm), it sounds terrific with most genres. But with the HE400, and its bass extension, more energetic feel, and clearer trebels, my EDM's gives me goosebumps! EDM's are also the main genre I listen to, and the HD400's are so crazy good with them that I don't think anything will come close. I also like the larger soundstage and imaging, so when I play competitive FPS shooters the sound positioning is better. I don't want to return the HD650 since I bought it only 1 month used for $260, but I can only keep 1.

I can definitely tell that the Magni pairs better with the HD-400 than the HD650. I think the general consensus is that the Magni is a good match with the HE-400. Too bad it doesn't pair with the HD650 so superbly, maybe another reason I want to sell the HD650, that I can't afford any amps that pairs well with it like the bottlehead crack.
