HE-400 Build Quality

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been doing some research on the HE-400 lately and have run across some old and new posts regarding issues with the build quality and defective parts on the HE-400s.  Are these all old issues?  It sure wouldn't give me that pride in ownership if in the back of my head I wondered if I had a defective pair.  Its not like us headphone geeks never obsess over our gear rolleyes.gif

Hifiman had problems with the first batch of HE-400, they have improved the build quality since then.

The only reason you could have a defective pair now is if you bought one used.

Come on. Factory defects can and do happen. Every day. HiFiMan may have corrected the issues with the first production run of the HE-400, but even now the headphone is not immune from the occasional issue although the chances are very slim. The same holds true for ANY headphone.

Good to know and very true! I just dislike the thought of dropping $400 on a pair of cans with a higher than normal chance of getting a lemon redface.gif

if you buy direct from hifiman a new unit, chances are minimal.
