*Review to come*
Bought those as a portable go-to set (subway use, airplanes, travelling, etc.) and am so far very pleased. I previously used Etymotic IEM's (ER-4P and HF3) which are known for their clarity and...

Sounds great with the modded AKG Q701. Nearly as good with that as my main amp that originally cost $350. Impressive! In fact, the Vali added nothing to the sound of the modded Q701, which is...

Buying the HE400 in the UK.post #1 of 101/14/13 at 2:07pmThread StarterI was looking around recently that the headphones I'm trying to buy are 150(!)£ cheaper in the us. Can I somehow buy them for the us price and get them cheaply shipped? How much will it cost? How much time will it take?

I don't think the HE-400s are worth it at 395 euros. It's not that bad on second thoughts.
Head-Direct are selling the HE-400s for $399 (~£250) and they have international shipping. Shipping cost is $10 I think.

Add customs, handling and it will become at least 399 Euro. I do not think shipping will be $10, I asked one day and it was more like $30.post #6 of 101/15/13 at 5:45ampost #7 of 101/15/13 at 9:23ampost #8 of 101/15/13 at 10:00amQuote:
HeadDirect ships straight from Hifiman factory in China, so you actually don't get hit with any customs fees as far as I know. It's different from authorized dealers shipping the product to you.post #9 of 101/15/13 at 10:13amQuote:
Yes, getting used items will save you a few pounds. Buying locally its even better.post #10 of 101/15/13 at 9:03pmQuote:
I had no idea. That is awesome news. I will have to think about getting a pair.
