Yep, i am not a "cable believer", but the the cable of the HE-500 is very bad for the price. Fragile and microphonic. Very good new if the cable of the HE-560 is better. You go on the right way, Hifiman's crew ! You rocks ;)

Will the pre-order be at a discounted price? If it is, I might just take a leap of faith and get them right away instead of waiting for reviews...

I'm interested to know if the he400i cable will be reworked.

 

Also, is the 560 still tuned towards the he6 signature and the 400i more towards the he500 signature?

 

thanks...

A canare-ish cable for 400i would be fine with me.

I like teh build of the Canare Cable, but mine is a little too short

 

I think it might be at best a mete r

Especially the signature tuning!

Any news about 400i?? How about the sound, more similar to he-400 or he-500?? I'm debated about purchasing the old 400 or waiting For the new 400i...

Several members have mentioned a "pre-order list".  

 

Is this for a purchase of the new models directly from HFM?  

 

How does one get on the pre-order list?

It is pretty much unanimous and I have yet to see a counter comment but atleast ten comments of the likes:
He500 balance w he400 bass.

Anything less will be a dissapointment. But fulfilling that would make the best value of any hp period. Hifiman already has the best value but the above will make it undeniably so.

I dont recall any information on how they would be tuned.  people assumed and hoped, but I don't believe hifiman gave any info on this.  unless I missed it, which is possible.

 

I don't know how they can tune the 400i to sound like the 500 with the change of single sided magnets.  I expect the 400i to be a whole new monster.
