hifiman he-400's are insane!

Just bought these headphones about 2 weeks ago, and i am blown away by these when compared to my Sennheiser hd650 headphones! But will warn you....these take a heck of alot of power to drive! I got my little dot mk3 tube amp's impedance turned up to 300+ ohms! But these will blow you away!! :-)

I have to let them burn in more, but already they're beating the hd650

It's all about perspective. One man's treble spike sibilance and upper midrange recession, is another man's ultra-detailed crisp open sound.

Being spoiled by higher end headphones, I easily heard the roller coaster ride that is the HE400.
But overall it's not a bad pair!

This one is great headphone for the price it's one of the best, just let them burn in and enjoy your new can :D

I'm sure you will enjoy it much more than your hd650

This was my feeling as well and because of this I plan on selling my pair.

Give the HE-500's a try.

How would you compare the HE-500s to the HE-400s?

HE-500 solves the problem of "recessed upper mids"?

HE-400s are high end for bass heads, a.k.a. me.

Treble about the same?
