After some research I am thinking about purchasing the HE-400 but have some questions regarding the cables & pads.
1) What pads come with the HE-400? They sell Velour Pads & Leather Pads on the site. In terms of sound what are people impressions when changing to these pads compared to the original pads. In terms of comfort, which one provides extra comfort for longer listening? Probably comes down to personal preference but i'd like to know if people have experiences with it. Only place i have read is on Headfonia they said the Velour adds treble.
2) How do these cables change the sound? Headfonia said the Silver Cable adds treble and also mentions: "The stock canare cable (I love canare) is over 2 meters and is only fitted with a full size 1/4 plug… weren’t these cans supposed to be driven by a phone or DAP?" So can i plug this into a 3.5mm headphone jack or need some kinda adaptor. Does it come with this adaptor and if not can i get one from the head direct site?
3) Hifiman Headphone Connectors - what is the purpose of these? Do i need them?
