HE-400 vs HD650 for rock

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

These is like my 9th thread asking about headphones, sorry lol.
I'm very confused, please help me choosing!

I mostly listen to hard rock, alternative, grunge, metal, punk, rock n roll, modern rock, classic rock, and many other genres.
I read that the HE-400 can be driven by any amp, so I was going to use the PA2V2
And for the HD650, the PA2V2 and the TubeMagic D1

If you have another suggestion, please tell me!

Please note that I want the best headphone I can get, budget around $500

I'd vote for the HE-400.  Its bass hits harder.

I was leaning for it! So, the HE-400 is my best option?

For the price range, and for rock? Pretty much.

Pretty much agree but don't forget that HE-400 are heavy so you will never get the feeling you have them on but until you try you will never find out if you have comfort issues with them

I can wear the hifimans but after a while they start too make my head hurt, but I see your point

I've had the He-400 and they sound good with rock.  Heavy?... I never had any issues with weight... nor with the LCD2rev2...lol.  But thats just me.

odd thing is that I can have lcd2s on all day and be fine, but for some reason hifimans make the top of my head hurt.

Maybe the way the HP applies pressure?  That really would suck to feel that with something you've spent money on to enjoy music.  Sounds to me like a short enjoyable moment.

I sit at my dest all day so I use headphones all day too, I can use the hifimans for 2-3 hours max before I have too take a break, but I can use the sennheisers for about 12-13 hours straight and be fine.
