Whatever happened to that HE-400 review?

post #62 of 102

Love Innerfidelity. Like Headfonia's pictures but don't really read the reviews.

 

GoldenEars I love as well, and since I can read Korean I can appreciate the site a lot more in detail.

Enjoyed your post.

 

Thanks. I noticed in your sig you are using the g-cush. Extremely comfortable. But if you still have the stock pads, you should try them again - I think they can recover some of the sub bass. It did for me. Try a bit of bass boost, too. I definitely get a rumble in the 20-40 hz.. quite amazing for an open back. I can achieve it with the Q701, too.

AFAIK Tyll doesn't like it due to the tizzy treble, so he's holding it off indefinitely.

Headfonia makes for an interesting read but I find some of the statements conflicting. I do enjoy the Headfonia blog but feel InnerFidelity to be more subjective.

To me, it's all pretty subjective.

I've gone back several times.  No matter how much boost or bassy pad, if I can't stand wearing the d*mned can for more than thirty minutes, there's really no point, is there?  Had the Q as well.

Tyll seems to love the Denon D2000/D5000/D7000 series but haven't mention much about the D600 yet. Makes me wonder if it is the same case as the he-400, in which he did not review because of the tizzy treble.

Did Tyll got the he-400 with the rev 1 drivers? I remember one website that mention that the rev 1 got many flaws so Tyll might did not like it.

I got one of the new revs recently, which was significantly better.  I'm still on the fence.

Give me Innerfidelity every time beerchug.gif

 

Quite frankly Headphonia is a bit of a joke regarding reviews.  I want substance over pretty pictures and marketing!

 

Tyll provides probably the best objective, subjective and unbiased reviews on the WEB period!

post #72 of 102

Yes but for me thats great and is the same with any reviewer, there is IMHO no review which is truly unbiased.

The trick is to understand with any review the reviewers preferences (bias), and then you get a much clearer picture of how the product will apply to you.

The key thing is consistency.

He can say a headphone is bad because he does not like.. at least thats my observation on him.. plus I dont really like graphic measurements as review instrument. as for Headfonia, they are a little more objective not the most accurate reviews but objective especially Mike's reviews. Lieven's review on the other hand is a bit polarized. for that I prefer Headfonia cheers,

Thats very easy to say without backing it up with any facts!

To me sounds like pure drivel.  So basically they are saying anything thats not recent is crap.

 

If you use your ears there are many headphones 20 or 30 years old that are still as good if not better than some of the phones produced today.

post #74 of 102

As far as the K1000 goes, I would say that's accurate if he's comparing them to modern flagships. It's still a pretty special headphone though.

post #75 of 102

I presume you are speaking from experience then?

How much use of the K1000 have you had personally?
