Last one I bought before the HE-400 was the LCD-2. The one I listened to the most before the HE-400 was the HD650.
Me? Only the best were had before the HE-400s. I've had the Beats, the Bose Quite Comfort series, the Soul headphones, and a few others with batteries in the ear cups that were designed to enhance the bass experience. It's all been a great learning experience, though.
I keep reading about these velours like they are a godsend. Luckily, I ordered from Justin W so they were included for free, but my question is, why are they hyped so much? Obviously I'm a noob, but can pads really make that much of a difference or is this one of those finicky things?
Out of curiosity, since I'm thinking of actually getting a pair in a few days, how exactly do you order from Justin (and get free velour pads)? Sorry if it turns out to be a silly question...
Oh that easy, thanks! Any idea how long that free US shipping might last ?
I had the Denon D2000's and the HE-400's out of the box beat the D2k's.. although, The D2k's are great in their own right. So, I wouldn't say a "night and day" difference, rather a "dawn to afternoon" difference, but the difference was still there. I fell in love with HE-400's gorgeous mids.
Curious about that HE-500 now... I'm spoiled on good sound. I want the next best thing now.
