Questions about the HiFiMan HE 400s

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of getting these in the future, and I have a few questions. I am looking for something V shaped / u shaped / fun. Not perfectly flat. If you own these, do you think those words describe them? 
 
How do they compare to other headphones in the same price range? Specifically, other V/U shaped headphones in this price range.  450 absolute max, (what i would have to pay for these) but preferably closer to 400. I already have an amp/dac, so I don't need to worry about that.
 
How is the soundstage?  How would you describe these headphones? Pros and cons.
 
Are they really worth the price? ($450) 
 
Lastly, how do these compare to the Denon AHD2000?

I have a pretty hearty comparison between the D2000 and HE-400.

I had the hd650s before I got the he-400s. I believe that the the hifimans have a slightly larger soundstage. There is definitely more bass on the hifiman between the two. They are a bit heavy, but I suppose you get used to it.

There is a peak in treble for sure on the he400 and minor sibilance, but it seems to tame itself down a little after some use. I had the grado ps500 before as well, so the peak doesn't really bother me that much either.

I'm happy with them so far.

Are you using a mobile version of head-fi?  Because if not the link should be right in front of you.

Lol. I'm on mobile. But I see it now. I couldn't see the links under the text in the grey box under your comment, and tried looking through your post history instead. I'll check it out. Thank you.

Thank you for the review. It was extremely helpful. I think i'll almost definitely go for the he-400s now.
