Nah, I've moved on from the HE400. It's Annie + D7000 or TH-600 as my end game.

Bummer mi amigos... L channel went dead yesterday.  Bought my cans from crutchfield and yesterday was the 59th day out of the 60 day trial.  Literally at 11:15pm they died so I hurriedly submitted a RMA for a return before having to mess around with sending them in and waiting for a repair.  Hopefully will get credited soon and place another order with a certain frequent contributor on the thread.

Ugh god and just when I was thinking of buying another he-400, big fan of the sound not so much on the build quality.

I won't. I got tired of the harsh treble and thin mids (in comparison to the Annie). If I come back to Hifiman, it will be for the HE500 or whatever new model comes out. Perhaps a successor to the HE400, that has more mids and less treble, similar weight or less.

You could try the Jergpads before abandoning the HE-400s. Maybe you change your mind, who knows?

post #8096 of 17023
I don't have any desire to try that anymore. I'll just wait for Hifiman toput out a product that fixes it at default.

Love the HE400, just have outgrown it.

I understand your desire to move. There are some things in the HE-400 i don't like either, like sibilance in vocals. But since i listen to instrumental Jazz 90% of the time, i really don't feel the need to move yet once i think they do this genre flawlessly. To me the pros make it up for the cons.

After squeezing them in hot water the gray pads are perfectly comfortable ;D No itching, like big pillows.
The white ones are nice too ans will be my back-up pads but are slightly thinner for my bigger ears.
