Yeah, those pesky FAZOR's...

Even the LCD2 I had prior to fazors didn't have very impactful bass.  It was pretty much on par with he-400.

Have any of you HE400 owners ever had an issue with something coming loose inside the cups? Yesterday I was moving my headphones off my head and something sounded to be rolling around inside the left cup. I had no music playing at the time. After hearing the rattle, I flipped my headphones around and the thing seemed to be moving and rolling the suddenly it just stopped. I took off the grill and pads and found nothing inside and I haven't been able to repeat the sound. Tonight I plan on spending a few hours listening and if I hear it rattling around I'll take it apart again and see what it is.

Anyone have any idea of what this could be? It looked like there was nothing that could come loose inside the cup and i've never taken the headphones apart before today so nothing could have moved in :/

EDIT: Just for the heck of it, any tips on removing the grill? I got mine off but it was terrifying! Thought I was going to break the little black ring

It may be a piece of the plastic cup snapped off inside...there is a cavity area in the plastic cups.

Yeah I took it apart again and it seems there is something inside the driver itself that is rattling around. This time it was very obvious and I could hear it over the music that I played...

Checked all the plastic parts and couldn't see signs of breakage anywhere and just some gentle rolling of the hp in my hands I could hear the object moving around. Guess I'll be sending it back to the store I bought it from for a replacement. This is quite discouraging as I've only had them for two weeks and I treated them like a newborn child. I'm extremely gentle with my electronics

Yes I think you should send it back, It happens sometime, too bad it's on you

My lcd 2 has a more textured bass but I agree the HE 400 really shines in this area
With my SS amp I used to think the audeze was showing less bass but with my hybrid amp it's on the same level

About the weight perception it just depends, if the hifiman hurts your head then imo the audeze will have the same flaw, I have no problem with both

Is it possible to close the cups of the 400i? Like if you cover the grills with your hands, does bass and SS disappear?
