gL!!

I don't know, at least three hours-half a day for me to realize how good they truly were. It's kinda subtle how much detail they present to you, and being not quite as "easy" to get into and direct as the 650's it's almost simple to dismiss the 400. Someone mentioned gaming, these are more than perfect for it because of the soundstage/seperation, though it won't give you a very direct sound like some may want, I think it's the presentation is best for gaming IMO.

 

As for tracks for the 400, I'm going to have a really hard time with that one, it just does everything pretty good, but it is fast so really dynamic music is just great on it, feel free to try these out with some eq!

My taste is getting obvious here.

Check out this new one from Pretty Lights. It's rockin'. MAKE SURE TO USE 720P.

I was waiting for the YO SKRILL DROP IT HARD part, but it's a pretty chill track, I like it. excessive distortion on some of the samples doesn't really make sense though.

I love the low bass in that song. Just makes it groove. That's sort of his style, the gritty soul samples and stuff.

I'm loving my new HE400. Just plugged them into my Yamaha RXV1600 Receiver and was blown away. Definite improvement over Laptop+E11. 

 

Been playing through my tunes old and new. This is one of my favs. It's a good 6+ years old, but still sounds as fresh as ever. Prog breaks at it's finest. It has a slow yet composed build up before that bass steals the show

Pull up "The Piano Guys" on youtube and set it to 1080p and just loop all the videos.

 

Test any headphone with that. Or speaker setup.

 

Very best,

 

Thank you, you are a God. Tears in my eyes, sounds so good through my speakers. Maybe one day I will have cans in the HE-400 league...

I've tested the headphones on several songs / movies. I've been listening to a lot of classical and house music. What should I listen for? I have a pair of iPod earphones, and when I plug them into the Fiio E17, the mids seem to sound better. My ears may just be naive. A little bit of training / experience will change that.

 

With the HE-400's, I can tell that the bass is awesome. Anything else I should hear out for?

 

It's like wine tasting. You need to know what to look out for before you can judge.

 

A good headphone should be obviously better. You shouldn't need to work hard to appreciate a good headphone, unless you are reviewing them professionally. Same with wine.
