Can somebody describe how the HE400's mids perform, but not in comparison to the HD650 since we all know it beats the HE400 there. Like if i was to live with the HE400 as my sole headphone forever, would i notice anything particularly wrong it?
It's just that all the sweet talk of the HD650 and its mids has me doubting my HE400 purchase.
Transparent, airy, energetic (satisfying with edgy music like metal and so on), and super relaxed. The HE-400s sound like they are never working hard to reproduce sound for you. Fang claims that these are the "JBL" of their headphone line. I own JBL studio series 2 bookshelfs and a center channel. Guess how those sound? In the sweet spot, they are airy, spacious, quite transparent, and have lifelike reproduction of human voices. So, probably not that far off. Except that the HE's have a much better bass reponse, and don't sound too "forward" when being pushed (like the JBLs).
