I've seen some for around that and even around $600 and a bit lower but I'm not looking to get a pair now, I'm still waiting on my HD600's to arrive to go along with my HE-400.  I think those are a great combo that compliment each other very nicely because of the neutral laid back nature of the HD600 compared to the more energetic and lively sound of the HE-400.

I'm anxiously awaiting my HE-400 arrival to see if I enjoy the more "energetic" sound and to see if I can even hear a sq difference from the HD598 and AD700 that I already own.

Did you end up not liking them?

Love them.  If they don't sell before I raise the money for my Off Ramp 5 - I'll keep them.

You'll notice a SQ difference from the HE-400 compared to those for sure, at least I think you should be able to quite easily.  I've heard the ATH-AD700 and its a nice pair of HP's for the price but the HE-400 is much better imo and the bass is like night and day compared to the HE-400's bass.

Will you utilize the i2s input on your DAC with the '5'? Steve has been very helpful to me in the digital landscape. Wants to sell me a '5' but I'd need to fill-up a few more tea tins. frown.gif

Spot on Silent One.  Both DACs have it.  PWD2 and the Master 7.  When I ordered the Master 7 I asked for the RJ45 jack pin out match the 5.  

 

Steves cables are crazy expensive..

I love the HE-400 and they do sound great with electronic music / EDM with great detail and clarity along with the soundstage and presentation and some of the best bass I've heard period.  The HD600 will be a nice change of pace HP because of its more laid back nature compared to the HE-400 so I'll be set for awhile and I'm so glad I switched from IEM's to HP's.

 

So thanks again as your reviews are quite helpful and I like the way you have them set also now I just need to figure out what HP I'm going to get next, maybe K 701 or I just need to save and get either the HE-500 or LCD-2.

Thanks! your welcome!!!

They are different sounds.  The LCD-2 is fuller, more weight.  It's also less comfortable IMO.  Overall, if I could only have one headphone, I would choose the LCD-2 Revision 2.

I've compared these two before. Silver back driver hd600 vs 1st gen he400 with pleather pads. The he400 was more laid back yet bassier but had more highs. The upper mids on the he400 are less aggressive than the hd600s. The senns are more neutral while the he400 is more V-shaped. I quite like the ortho sound even though its a little V-shaped though because I didn't hear any weird echoey artifacts and smearing typical of the boom-tish dynamic cans.

Hi

Does everyone change the pads on their HE-500's? Or at least recommend to?.....and to which ones, if they do?

 

Thanks

Thanks

Regarding the stock pads, I prefer the Velours as it gives them a little more air and really brings out the great treble. Some prefer the pleather for a darker richer tone. 

 

Jerg has a whole thread on modifications to the stock pads thats worth a look at.
