DT990 600 ohm vs. HE-400 - Page 5

post #61 of 64

Overall, I don't think so.  They won't cause you to sweat over time, but the velour itself can be itchy sometimes, the velour pads are stiffer so it feels like the headphone is clamping down slightly more, and I swear the pleathers have a slightly larger opening.  Don't get me wrong though it's no big downgrade in comfort.

Great info on this thread guys. So just to clear things up before I pull the trigger, despite its rather hefty weight (almost half a kilo) the HE-400 is comfortable enough to be worn for long listening sessions (say 2-3 hours).

For me it's really comfy. I can wear it for hours no problem.

This varies with different people, for me velours are way more comfortable simply because it's not using pleather as the outer layer. But pleather is definitely softer. Keep an eye out in the HE400 discussion thread, i'll be posting my pleather/velour combo mod once im done with it.

I'm very pro-mod. It sounds like a lot of people stray away from the DT990 because of the piercing highs, and the HE-400 because the bass is a little lacking. I've heard putting the cap from the dt770 driver over the 990 driver will soften the highs and produce a little bit more bass. I wonder if there is some sort of semi-open mod that you could do on the HE-400... hmm... I am interested in getting a completely open can for my next pair so maybe I'll have to try one of those previously stated mods. I've been a beyer fan since I first listened to my 770-80, then bought the 880-250.. I might have to break the beyer trend and get the 400's, they're so sexy looking!
