With the 400i tuned more like an he500 I find myself more interested in it.

Ha, so it's a matter of darker vs brighter :wink:

Anyway, take the hype and stuff with a grain of salt.. It's seen pretty often that it takes like half a year to reach a realistic and fairly trustworthy general consensus. Or so I felt with the HE-400 for example.

I cannot agree more.

Still waiting patiently for the review samples to go out.

I apologize for my absence y'all. I promise I'll clean up the title and the first post once these things actually go on sale :p

I assume something is being done to the headphone/baffle, since we haven't heard from HiFiMAN in a while...

I'll be ready for any updates :popcorn:

With all the attention the HE-560 is getting, it seems everyone's forgotten about the HE-400i. There's been a serious lack of info on it....

Is the 400i out yet?

You gotta keep in mind that it'll release 1-2 months after the 560... So plenty of time.

HE-400i is on track for May delivery. I haven't seen or heard it since CES but Fang told me he is very happy with how it turned out. 

 

We will update you with more info as we have it.

Thanks for the update Peter. May is coming up quickly, so that's great news. Any idea when the review samples for the 400i will go out?

 

thanks...
