Gah, I prefer velour now.
It's interesting that people prefer pleather for he500 that prefer velour on he400. I can't wait to give that a whirl.
I've had these sets for a month now, 1 week with velour 3 with pleather. it's like a brand new pair again :D
only thing that nags me is I hear some static occasionally when pausing a track (muting it) it's occured in both channels but more often it happens in the left but i swear it's my o2 amp because keeping it plugged into my headphone out on macbook air I don't think I ever heard the same static. Same thing when I had my udac2-hp before i sold it off a few days ago, never heard occasional static. When I turn down the volume too, the right channel makes a bit of distortion too like a crackle (which is 100% the amp because it only occurs when lowering volume, reminds me of changing the volume on my klipsch 2.1)
Is it possible the DC power isn't clean as the reason? This amp is wonderful otherwise.
.. I know this is HE-400 thread, but I figure somebody must know
