Not trying to push any sales. Just wanted to let people know that these are in the wild and what they are going for.

How can these be so cheap, they cost about the same as the Monoprice 8323 DJ headphones lol. Tyll or some1 needs to measure these S400/S500 ASAP.

Better hurry the blacks all seem to be gone. I am in the process of getting a extra white one. NVM they have both in stock it seems.

 

I am having a hard time checking out though for some reason. Maybe too much traffic?

With shipping it's more than the Amazon cost (for the black ones anyway). 

 

Unless you buy 3 sets, then the shipping is free. Anyone else in the Phoenix area need one or two? ;-)

Thanks for the heads-up on the free ship option, do you get free shipping on orders over $50??? If so any ideas on filler items. LoL Think I am just gonna get 3 and hook some people up.  biggrin.gif

Actually I like this kind of presentation but optimally with a bit more expansive soundstage than M50 at least, Denon HP700 does excellent job with this with a forward/engaging/intimate presentation but with a reasonable expanded soundstage for a closed headphone. But yea I hate "distant" or laid-back sounding headphones (but I don't like bright headphones either, I don't mind forward midrange but don't like emphasized highs) as I want to be immersed with the music which to me personally is coming from a both a bit boosted bass range for increase of immersion with the "thumps" as well as a forward midrange for that intimate "feels like the singer stands next to you"-presentation.

 

How would you compare M50 vs S400 in highs? My interpretion of M50 is on the border of becoming bright headphone, it can have some sibilance due to a spike there somewhere around 8~10kHz range but otherwise it's on a fairly neutral level, I personally would optimally want a more even highs range compared to M50, the Q40 have very nice highs for me, like M50 but without the spike so overall Q40 feels very neutral in the highs, just hasn't got the best extension and rolls off at like ~15kHz so it lacks some of that "airiness" of open or highend headphones but to me that's not such an important aspect.

 The S500 & M50 are brighter than neutral in my book. The S400 is definitely closer to neutral, thus yielding a more natural, less fatiguing experience with no sibilance, while keeping all of the detail and clarity.

Man what a strange company, they don't ship out of their own state, so if you are not living there you can't buy it LoLoLoLO what???
