If they do, it's probably not active 24/7 like this thread, or the other threads on this forum are.post #2853 of 1517412/8/12 at 2:54pmpost #2854 of 1517412/8/12 at 6:24pm
Hey fellas. Out of this list here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/595071/android-phones-and-usb-dacs/270#post_8660606
What is the best of those for the HE-400? I need a portable dac/amp for use with my Samsung S3. Thanks.post #2855 of 1517412/8/12 at 8:13pmpost #2856 of 1517412/8/12 at 8:17pmQuote:

Yes, but this is the thread that Matt started - and, therein lies the difference.
This thread initially just started off as a review thread by Matt. However, since all of us are ADD, we all decided it would be best to also post questions and experiences about the HE-400 in here as well.post #2858 of 1517412/8/12 at 8:26pmpost #2859 of 1517412/8/12 at 8:26pmpost #2860 of 1517412/8/12 at 9:23pmQuote:
Yes, sadly the name was changed as you've reflected. Up until this point, I've had a lot of respect for Matt. I've valued his opinions and even his music tastes, as a lot of it overlapped with what I've liked. Yet, to just rename this to an HE-400 appreciation thread? The nerve ....post #2861 of 1517412/8/12 at 9:33pmpost #2862 of 1517412/8/12 at 10:21pm
Man, having the HE400 and HE500 side-by-side, I can't help but appreciate () just how much of a huge difference the 60g is. HE400s feel extremely light while HE500s feel like a bag of bricks.
It's funny how this weight difference is paralleled in the difference in sound signatures; HE500s sound much weightier than HE400s. It's like the difference between a skinny european model bodybuilder, and a woman from sistine chapel paintings.

+1 on this. Following two threads is too time consuming...first world problems.post #2864 of 1517412/9/12 at 4:49amThread Starterpost #2865 of 1517412/9/12 at 5:11am
So I decided to try out my old Senn HD280 pro phones for craps and giggles, now im far more appreciative of these HE400s
Needless to say, the HE400s destroyed them, and I'm never putting those 280s on my head again.
