Nope...all the early impressions including the word directly from hifiman is that the 400i is tuned most similarly to the he500.

"That's why i asked about the 3 sets.  Price wise, the 400i and 500 are so close.  But from what the others say, the 400i still sounds closer to the 400 than the 500. "

 

yay!!!!!!!.. i am happy to be wrong.:D^quote from the other thread.

The misinformation that's circling these new models is staggering. Truth is, nobody knows what the HE-400i sounds like for sure, as they are still tuning them (from the horses mouth). All speculation, folks.

The hifiman rep JUST said yesterday that they are tuning them very close to the he500 signature. :rolleyes:

I wonder where exactly the 560 will stay. I mean they are not a true HE-6 successor so even if they are somewhat similar, they still might be quite a but different from what we think.
The 400i bring a close breed to the 500 is a good thing as long as it keeps some of the 400 aspects people like wink.gif

Yes, I read that as well. I was more referring to whoever told grizzlybeast that it sounds more like a HE-400. But Peter did also point out that whomever has heard the HE-400i at this point has not heard the final product. Changes can still happen, I for one agree that I'd love a HE-500 sig with HE-400 bass.

I may have to sell one of my Mad Dogs for these, but I'm not an early adopter. Waiting on impressions!

It's March! Any news to whet my appetite for these?

post #174 of 778

Holy Schiit! I didn't even realize it was march. The early impressions should be coming for these. Hopefully some Head-Fi'ers could get their paws on these early on.

Don't get your hopes too high for March. It was mentioned in the CES thread that the HE-400i will come a month or two after the He-560.

Noooooo, now I have to wait even longer!

 

...or fork out extra for the 560.

 

Any word on when exactly orders for those will be open or when they will ship?

Most companies will roll out there flagship first and I completely understand that.  I think that four still 6 weeks out or so for the he400i.
