Can you comment about the sound stage, separation and detail/micro detail  between HE400 vs DT 880?

It's quite neutral but vocal a bit recessed and treble abit harsh . I use it as my rreference headphones.

Having just purchased some 400s my first thought was that they were lacking in the mid to low bass. Liek the hit was there but not enough follow through. Likey because I am so used to the closed backs I've had...

I did something similar with Alpha Dog pads. Took a bit to adjust but but was feeling like the right move in no time.

The title of the thread pretty much describe the HiFiMan-HE 400 perfectly especially when it comes to the change of sound from different sources. On my Onkyo TX-8555 stereo receiver I really had to turn up the volume to bring out the sound and detail. Then last night on a whim I hooked up a RadioShack 40 watt PA Amp and I was getting a delicious full sound from my HiFiMan-HE 400 without pushing the volume knob to 50. Funny how a under one hundred dollar  PA amplifier can make a pair of expensive headphones sound better then a three hundred dollar stereo receiver. Fortunately all my other headphones sound fantastic on my Onkyo.

That seems to help reduce the treble spike, but how does it boost the upper midrange?

I guess the smaller volume the driver in working on? Same effect as reducing the volume of a closed cabinet speaker.
