post #17146 of 17757

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has used this cable http://www.ebay.com/itm/Furutech-upgrade-cable-for-Hifiman-HE-400-HE-500-HE-5-HE-6-Black-Red-White-/261345073992?pt=UK_MobilePhones_MobilePhonesCasesPouches&var=&hash=item3cd9615b48 because my cable is broken and i'm out of warranty.

 

Thanks!

Sorry, I went with a more expensive cable myself, ran around $84, and was ordered on amazon. I have noticed the same cable on eBay.

The he 500's prices may drop down a bit with HE 560 showing up !

HE 400's at 299$ it's a real good price

Well, you should get a good price on used 500's on this website if you are looking at used 500's as the new 560 are shipping/received by a few and the 500's don't have the treble peak problems of the 400's in stock form so they will be a great bargain. I think after any price dip on 500's they will become a collectors item later on.

How do the HE400 compare to Grado 325is? and the beyer DT900-250ohm-pro? 

 

I was considering the HE400 but the other 2 look quite good as well. & unfortunately, I cant try out any of them!

Grado are on the bright side, not an all rounder, pairing well with rock musics

Dt 990 pro : the highs are quite pronounced, mids are recessed and bass is deep, plentiful, and tightly controlled

I would choose the hifiman but it's my personal taste

TontonJok: I believe the beyer would have similar sound signature as the Hifiman? Any reason to prefer the Hifiman overall? 

post #17156 of 17757

Both HE-400 and DT990 employ a u-shaped signature, but HE-400 is on the warm side while DT990 is on the cold sounding side.

For EDM the beyer's are good as the He 400, but I prefer how the Hifiman handles voices and mediums in general

Both are good cans, but getting an ortho for less than 300 $ wink.gif

I have both ....prefer the Beyers for EDM/Thumping music but the vocals sound better on the Hifiman, so love some of the pop/rock recordings on them. Do keep in mind that you can get the DT990 Pro for less than half the price of the He400. Both are amazing cans though :)

hi , good points. Thats the most attractive thing about the DT990, they are around half the price! & I dont know if the HE400 are worth double the amount!

In audio when you double the price you never get doubled performances popcorn.gif
