If they do, it's  probably not active 24/7 like this thread, or the other threads on this forum are.

Yeah - they are MIA at times...

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.

The problem with that thread is that its in a sub forum that is nowhere near as active as this one.

You do realize there is another HE-400 thread that covers the same territory, and is just as active as this one ?

Yes, but this is the thread that Matt started - and, therein lies the difference.  wink.gif  biggrin.gif

 

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.

Oh my god, why was it renamed to appreciation thread, why?  I can't stand by the he-400 community any more, I prided myself on having on he-400 having no appreciation thread :(

I vote for a merger of both threads, as they are essentially the same exact thing, lol.

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 ....  eek.gif  biggrin.gif  wink.gif

Seriously!  I will never read another one of his reviews or impressions ever again!  They just reek of too much.. appreciation. biggrin.gif

Man, having the HE400 and HE500 side-by-side, I can't help but appreciate (wink.gif) 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.

 

Edit: fixed factual inaccuracies

+1 on this. Following two threads is too time consuming...first world problems.

New title being served up that will hopefully bring peace back and restore order. biggrin.gif

post #2865 of 18450

So I decided to try out my old Senn HD280 pro phones for craps and giggles, now im far more appreciative of these HE400s biggrin.gif

 

Needless to say, the HE400s destroyed them, and I'm never putting those 280s on my head again.
