Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch - Page 199

post #2971 of 3090

I know a lot people don't want this, but I hope Fang just tunes the 400i to be like the 560. I like neutral flat sound without coloration. If he has to color it up a bit, than I can settle for the shelved upper-mids of the HE-500 + mid-bass hump. But it cannot have that flabby bass. It must be tight.

 

But yeah I'm hoping the 400i = 560 with just a tad bit less refinement without wood, but 90% of the 560.

 

My 2 cents, YMMV, etc, etc.

:eek:did you just say what I have been wanting to say lol. It is textured but woolly. It reminds me of the 7520 in that it has resolution but isnt the tightest.

 

But thats why I like the 400 bass a little better.

I don't think this wood is worth 400 bucks alone.
I think Hifiman won't do that because it didn't work with the RE400 and RE600 which were tuned very similarly.
So I think they'll be different and even HFM themselves said it.
Sorry guys wink.gif

HE90 to be specific. 

 

Besides the abyss and new hfm headphones, Stax headphones and akg k70x has suspension headbands to mention some. There are probably many others.

Looking forward to the 400/400i shoot-out. Anyone getting an advance pair to preview.... ?

post #2980 of 3090

Excited for these.

 

Oh and as for suspension-banded headphones: all AKG headphones except the modern K5xx models, all Stax except the SR-1/2/3/4/5/X, the Yamaha YH-1, YH-2, YH-100 and YH-1000, the Sony DR-Z5, DR-Z6, DR-Z7, MDR-R10, MDR-F1, and many of the MDR-CDxxxx headphones, Pioneer SE-1000, SE-450, SE-550, SE-650, Monitor 7, Monitor 10-II, Koss K/6X and variants, Pro/4AAA and 4AAAT, UR-40, UR-20... the list continues on. 

 

Great headband design, for sure. Probably the best inherently. I'm surprised it isn't used more.
