Thing is, I find the Magni is pretty frequently recommended to HE-400 owners, but I don't understand why if it increases the treble (which seems to be the biggest complaint).

post #17297 of 18450

Well it doesn't really increase the treble too much, it's not a terribly colored amp.  What it does do is make the treble cleaner and more resolving, which can seem like it adds treble.

sorry to post so many times

can anyone who's had experience with both amps tell me your impressions with the HE-400? Also, was there any hiss with either? Also, if one brings the vocals forward at all PLEASE let me know :P

Thanks guys, Head-Fi'ers rock

PS, not 100% critical, but if one seems synergistic with more headphones (in your experience) that'd be good to know too

Vali owner here, the HE-400 pairs with the Vali quite nicely IMO. The bass has really nice slam an drums have an equally satisfying snap to them. The highs on the HE-400 will still remain quite forward and aggressive but they won't be overly edgy nor harsh. The Vali has a nice tendency of presenting a smooth treble without sacrificing air. I really gush over what the Vali can do.

+1 the Vali is a very good amp for the price...very good.

Mmkay, guess its top on the "when I have money" list.

How does the Vali compare to the Magni with the HE-400? I am currently unimpressed by the Modi+Magni with HE400, i know the headphones can do much more but not sure which direction to go amp wise.

need suggestions for improving the treble

I have the magni and the vali and the vali takes the cake, as another said in this forum I can gush enough about it, although it could have a little more power, I would recommend it over just about anything in that price range for the he400

jerpad mod...or wait till the new hifiman pads are available. The other option is EQ. Search this thread and you'll find some good information on how to get the most out of the he400 with EQ.

Why did you go for a hybrid cable ? I had seen other users split their money between OCC/SPC in the DIY cables thread.
