I currently have about $620 saved up for either of these two headphones. I can get a used He-500 off of amazon for about $614, which will leave me without a good amp (I'll have to use my Logitech THX headphone output for an amp) for a while until I save enough for a schiit magni, or I can purchase an He-400 with the schiit stack. My question is, is the wait and extra money worth it for the He-500? What more does it offer, and is the less amount of bass that it provides EQ-able? Basically, is the He-500 just a "sidegrade" of the He-400, and does it provide things that are not EQ-able such as soundstage and clarity?
