I'm really content with the HE-400, and I don't think other headphones will provide that much more enjoyment.
What I would spend more money on would be an cIEM that would sound like the HE-400! However all the IEMs I owned didn't sound nearly as good as closed full sized headphones half their price....
I haven't really done a proper A/B comparison (yet), but I go from using my GR07-BE while at work and commuting to the HE-400 at home, and find they both meet my needs. Obviously, I enjoy the HE-400 more, but for a small, portable IEM to come close the way I feel the BE does makes them, or I imagine the MKII variant, a nice companion. Off the top of my head, the BE's sound stage is more intimate, with a slightly more forward midrange. Perhaps MattTCG can comment on his experiences between the two.
What IEMs did you use before?
