**Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread** - Page 1134

post #16996 of 18086

I have a HeadRoom Micro Amp and the crossfeed with this unit makes a remarkable difference. BTW at this time HeadRoom no longer manufactures any of their own gear. A prime example is at the beginning of Money from Dark Side of the Moon. When the cash registers bounce from right to the left channel switching the crossfeed on and off makes a huge difference. In older 60's recordings that first started using a stereo mix, the engineers went way overboard with right and left channel panning. HeadRoom was the first company to offer crossfeed and even sold the circuit to other manufacturing companies. The now defunct Sonic Frontiers is a company that comes to mind. Go to Meier Audio's website. They cover the concept of crossfeed in detail. I wouldn't be stating this if it wasn't true. Like I've always said, I let my ears do my talking.

A follow up. Listen to Abby Road or any other later Beatles records. They are an example of hard panned mixes.

THAT is not at all my intention. What's wrong with some debate or discussion? Would mutual bootlicking be your preference?

I never called you a troll... I was merely offering a definition of the term.

You're getting weary? We're getting weary of snake-oil shilling and bizarre assertions of non-science based conclusions of perceived benefits which   ........ come off as trolling.

 

Back on track please!

We're getting tired? What are you? Some kind of spokesman? Here's the deal. I'm new to this and I seem to be upsetting certain thin-skinned people so I'm going to drop all of my controversial posts. So here goes: The HE-400 headphones are remarkable for what they cost. I'm totally sold on planar technology.

Nobody is going to argue with you there :beerchug:

The HE-400 was a good deal even when it cost $400.

To quote The Animals: I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...

post #17007 of 18086

With a crossfeed option. I mean it's got an on and off switch.

post #17008 of 18086

Crissmini, crossfeed is prohibitively expensive. That is why I cut off my 1/8th stereo plug and replaced it with a mono plug. Now all my recordings have that perfect blend! Lol. <------ Sarcasm.

 

But seriously, please stop. This thread can offer so much more if we allow others to post to it.

 

Best,

Got it. Will do. One last statement. My system with the HE-400's sound phenomenal.

post #17010 of 18086

Hey guys im about to buy the he 400 and was wondering what tube amp works best with it. It would be nice if it worked well with the dt 990 pro 250 ohm and the q701.

Sorry for asking this question if it has already been asked. Looked around google but never got a definite answer.

 

Budget is around 200-250$
