Through my headphone journey this month I ended up with all these cans (The HE-400's are on loan so i'll have to pick up a pair) will be returning most of them, but before I did I thought I would do anyone looking at these cans a service. I didn't have very much time at all to do this video, nor did I want to drag it on with technical details that appeal to few (I had a LOT to talk about, but wanted to keep it brief).
I have at least 20 hours on all cans, least of which being the mad dogs because the 400's COMPLETELY outclass them. I did get a chance to test all the cans through the Essence ST amp as well as using the Asgard as the main.
Also, comparing the HE-400's against the HD650s with intention of keeping just one is the hardest thing I've had to do this year. I might even change my mind if a Schiit Lyr or Bottlehead Crack make them sound as good as I have heard. The 400's give me that level of accuracy and detail I rarely hear at all, along with high treble information making them much more valuable to me (I find it much easier to articulate/separate sounds because of the manner that the 400's present them too which is not as much fun as the 650s, but you hear more).
There is obviously a lot that wasn't covered as well, so if anyone has questions I would be more than happy to abide
