Just get the HE-400 and get some J$ Beyer pads, tames the brightness a little bit, bass is improved, lower and more volume to it. If you are very sensitive to it though I'm going to have to recommend you stay away, or try it and buy it. I really love these cans, resale is pretty high as well. You won't be out much for renting them, and if you like them, keep em
Ill try the J$ pads and report back. Should be ordering some this weekend.
I asked absolutely the same question a week ago when I thought I couldb't live with these trebles. I've now 10 days after purchase and don't if its' the can or my ear whitch are burned in but I an now live with the trebles for the most part of my collection . give the he-400 a few days of listening before decide to keep them or not
I should precise that I use an hybrid Dac/amp ( Aune T1) and I found tubes which make he-400 sounds good to my ears
Oh thank god. This is good news. Is there a big difference in the treble spike with the Aune t1 compared to no amp? Im starting to wondering of the tube route is the way to go. I've always been interested on tube rolling just never had an opportunity to buy one. Hmm.
