Can anyone recommend a hard shell case for the S400?

Yes!

Mine fit perfectly in this: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-NVA-B10G-nav-u-Nylon-Storage/dp/B001AG6J26/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354634763&sr=8-1&keywords=Sony+NVA-B10G+nav-u+Nylon+Storage+Case

 

It's not exactly a "hard" case but hard enough, I think.  And the price is right.

How is the soundstage on the S400 vs say a decent IEM of roughly the same price like the Sony MH1C or the RE0s (i'm sure it has more soundstage than the RE0s but still curious).

post #713 of 1432

in general headphones will have more.

post #714 of 1432

Well hell, they were on Amazon for under $30 so I decided to pick them up. Now... how do I explain to my wife that I need yet ANOTHER pair of headphones haha.

I sent my S400's with the AKG K81DJ earpads to Purrin for measurments:

I've since gone back to the stock pads with some cup dampening to get a more neutral signature. I still really like these cans. The price on these amazes me.

Since I have settled on the HM5 pads, I have available the ath velours, the ath pleathers and the akg pads. I have two sets of slightly used of all three pads, and I would sell the sets of three plus a set of the stock pads for $20 shipped Paypal gift. If anyone wants to try these pad mods please PM me!

Yeah, I have to re-familiarize myself with cute's HM5 pad setup also. I am very happy with the ath pleather + taped vents setup, but cute's setup might be the end-all :)
