Didn't buy it yet, it's on back-order it seems, but looks like lots of online retail places will be getting them soon cuz it's already listed for sale. Might just do the wait game a little bit more when they actually have it in stock to get that free ship. LoLs

 

edit: ok I had a chat with macmall and this is what I got regarding when the S400s will be in stock.

 
"MichaelAllan.Chua@macmall.com: [4:01:07 PM] We dont have an eta for this, please try checking with us first week or 2nd week of this month
[4:02:26 PM] Maybe we will have updates"
 
But I am assuming it's gonna be real soon since so many online retailers are listing them for sale.

Free ship over $25 is for items that they have "in-stock" only, since these S400s are back-ordered they don't qualify......yet. I asked them and they said once they get them in-stock, they will qualify for the free shipping option. 

 

edit: Damn I want them now. triportsad.gif And for this price gonna get 2. Thank god I have my S500s to hold me over, or else be going nuts. ahahahaha  L3000.gif

 

I think why my S500s are not as loud compared to others that are running them off their clip+s is mostly due to my pad on pad mod, the 2 sets of pads over the drivers/ plus the added distance makes them less loud on higher volumes.  I hope his is the case, cuz if not gonna go deaf real soon. biggrin.gif

yea.. CRAZY price.

 

A question to Those of you that have the S400 and  the Panasonic sHTF600,   How much better is the S400 over the Panas? if they are better?

 

Thats the price range of a very good headphone under $30 (Panas)

oh Doc what was the $1 item you added to get it over $25? Might need to know if I just ending up getting 1 set.  Care to linky??? Looks like these S400s are gonna go for around mid $20's to $30 from most places, so this is gonna be a real slickdeal for sure.

I placed my order for the Sansa Clip Zip and a 32 GB Micro SD card today so I should receive it either tomorrow or Wednesday biggrin.gif

This seems like a easy one, since Ghostfit and some others that got the S400s early likes them over the S500s due to it's supposed more balanced/ neutral sound already is telling that these S400s are gonna destroy them Panas as the S500s has done for you. This is just a simple observation though, don't quote me on it. heeee

 

Oh and why are places listing the S400 drivers as Neodymium??? JVC better not be messing around. LoL I want me carbon nanotube 100% legit.

Another one bites the dust!  biggrin.gif

Hey, on the Amazon pages for the American HAS400s, it mentions having a neodymium driver. What's up with that?

post #1887 of 8119

that's the material of the magnet not the diaphagm, which is carbon nano-tubes. 

post #1888 of 8119

Yeppp people move on, there is nothing to see here, these S400s are cheapos for the dumb masses that has no idea what good sounding gear sounds like.  JVC is just trying to sell more of their low grade plastic phones so they can make a killing with their "carbon nanotube" gimmick nonsense crack technology talk. Go get them ALL METAL sexy V Moda 100s cuz plastics are just good for recycling. LoL  beerchug.gif

 

edit: Cools, thanks Inks for clearing that up, had me stressing for a quick minute.  biggrin.gif

But you can also go to the homepage and select the menu for "Shop all categories" and then select under "shop by price" the link for 1 to 49 bucks. Then sort by lowest price and you can choose from your favorite 1 dollar item beyersmile.png
