He 400 Upgrade over the K702?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Is the He 400 really a upgrade or just a side-grade over the K702?

 

I heard the only "real" upgrade of the K702 is the HD800, which does everything the AKG does, but better.

 

I only have a Modi + E12 setup, but i heard the HE 400 will be easy to drive.

 

Some authorized dealer on Ebay is offering me a BRAND NEW (factory sealed arrived 2 weeks ago) pair of He 400 for $300 with full factory warranty. (Great deal i know)

So my question is, is the HE 400 really worth the $300 upgrade over the K702?

 

I listen mainly to classical, instrumentals, and sometimes pop.

This is where i offered and got accepted from btw. There's still one left, so if you offered him $300, he'll probably take it.

 

I think it's a great deal for a brand new one with all full warranty. Just not sure if it's worth it since some people say it's mostly just a side grade

My answer might be a little late for you, but whatthefun... what you say about the relation between the K-702 and the HD-800 is correct. But I do not see how the HE400 fits into that pattern. It has a totally and completely different sound signature so it hardly can be an upgrade for the 702...
