I second the e10. The lowest I would personally go with the these.

+1. The E10 would probably be the absolute minimum to get over that fine line from "mediocre" to "decent".

You should give it more time. From experience, I've found that getting a better headphone doesn't necessarily impress right away. However, it's when you've used them for a while and then go back to your old one that you really notice the difference. I think it's because you're so used to the sound of a particular headphone for so long that anything new, even if it's actually better, is jarring at first. Use the HE-400 for a couple weeks and then try the Sony's again and see if you still think they're only a little better. I wouldn't bet on it :D
