Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion - Page 24

(similar to the HE560, whose sound signature has elements of both the HE500 and the HE-6) So I think that the title of the HE400i is apt but in my opinion a better name for the HE400i would be the HE460 since from impressions thus far, it sounds as good as the HE500. However, keep in mind this is my opinion, so feel free to say what you think and believe.

 

I would personally call it HE-450i: "450" because of the sound signature, "i" for folks that need to be ensured it's iDevice-compatible to buy :p

 

Sales would be massive that way... for real! :cool:

Man they missed an opportunity to name it HE450i and price it at $450.

They missed the opportunity to price the 560 to $560, too.

I'll be attending the Chicago meet this Sunday where I'm told there will be a 400i. I'll post my impressions.

I thought it was Saturday, or is it a two-day?

It's Saturday. I too am greatly looking forward to hearing the HE-400i. Hell, I may plop down some cash on the spot if they're all I hope.

Wonder if they will beat out LCD-2 if they are more bass/sub-bass slanted....

OK, thanks :p  I was scared that I'd pop up on the wrong day :p  I'm planning on auditioning the 400i, 560 (updated model, I haven't heard the 560 original in about a month :( ), the PM-1 (2 if it's there) and maybe the new Aurisonics' Rockets (if they are there).  That's assuming I can get to all that :p

Summer and I will be at ChiUniFi on Saturday. If anyone comes to see us on Sunday, they will be disappointed. :blink:

 

Please stop by our table and visit with us.

Since the 400i is going to be there, I don't think you'll have a break of people stopping by. Heck, you may even have a line.

Sorry, my bad, meant Saturday!

Love this thread - 24 pages long yet we know practically nothing, and have few impressions! :D

 

Can't wait to get more - but it looks like my audio budget is blown for the next couple years.

There will be a handful of impressions flooding in after tomorrow's ChiUniFi meet. I know I personally am really looking forward to this bad boy, can't wait to get some head time with it.
