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

Gear mentioned in this thread:
"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.^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.
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
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.
Oooo, didn't see that. Thanks for the heads up!
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?
