**Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread** - Page 1171

Just listened to this pretty cranked up in volume, 38 on high gain on my NFB-28 which according to my phone was mid 70's in dB... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HtECfIH_Os... it sounded so killer I might have to get the album this cover was off of. This guy's one of my favorite drummers... if only the snare wasn't recessed a little like it is on these cans.

got the Vali and E07K/E09K and returning the Vali.  Much prefer the ability to do some EQ and gain adjustments depending on what style of music I am listening too.  Powers the HP's very well too!

Anyone get a chance to try the hybrid pads on the 400s yet?

I ordered mine last week but they got delayed a few days. Hopefully I get the hybrid pads in this week and I will give them a try. Right now I am using the velours.

For anyone who's tried the hybrid pads with the HE-400 give us some impressions, definitely considering giving them a shot.

The latest pads are getting mixed reviews over on 560 thread. They not only changed the hole opening to be bigger but pad material as well.

post #17557 of 18332

That's unfortunate. I loved the earlier version when I tried out the 560 in one of the stores here.

post #17558 of 18332

It looks like they have both versions on their site now. I think the "A" model is the "pre-production" version.

post #17559 of 18332

I'm curious which version of the pad will end up being most liked.

post #17560 of 18332

Thanks for the heads up on the different pads. Just looked at my order and I will be getting the stock HE560 pads so I am getting the pads currently shipped with the 560 and not the pre-production ones.

 

Are the FocusPad-A the ones people preferred?

post #17561 of 18332

I prefer the production ones, due to the nicer finish

Stock pads for the 560

http://head-direct.com/Products/?act=detail&id=203

pre order pads for the 560's

This is different then what was available yesterday

does anyone have any comparisons between these two pads with the HE-400?

Hi guys, I've owned the HE-400 since Christmas and I've been kind of disappointed by its sound so far. Mainly the bass just isn't as great as most reviews have been pointing out. My current setup is FLAC, computer with Creative Titanium HD into Headstage Arrow 12 HE. I usually find myself cranking the bass boost on the amp to +6dB.

 

Is it just the overall lack of amping that keeps me disappointed? What amp would you guys recommend I get, portable or full-sized doesn't matter.

 

Thanks!

If you're looking for a higher bass quantity or the physical thumping feeling, I recently tried the sennheiser HD650 and it had much more powerful bass than the 400. Though I did find it to be less refined. I have no clue when it comes to amp, I'm still without one ATM

If you're disappointed with the HE-400's bass then you'll most likely be disappointed with HD650 and any other open headphones.  Get a closed headphone.
