Anyway, I digress. Back to the he400!!
All those coming to the Atlanta CanJam can hear my he400 on the lyr with some ridiculously good tubes.
The cost is around the same! Lol.
The comfort on the Annie > HD650. Just saying. You put them on, you'll see... not much out there that can beat the Annie in comfort. The new pads and flat headband really did wonders for the AKGs. Self adjusting headphones have always been preferrable than those you manually have to extend/retract.
The HE-400 is more energetic than those two though.
As you can see, the Q701 and HD650 have a very similar curve. Not saying they sound alike. They don't. But you can literally boost up the Q701's bass line to HD650 level there (possibly more), as well as softening the peaks in the mid and upper ranges and making the signature darker, and you will have an idea as to why I say the HD650 and Annie have a lot in common.Edited by Mad Lust Envy - 1/13/13 at 5:58pm
