Well I can appreciate you for disagreeing with him and not saying it too rude or moronically how.

 

As long as you can some what tactfully defend your opinions then more power to you I guess! 

 

So any more news on the 400i lately? There was an article and picture of the A&K 240 recently, it looked pretty good!

News on the 400i is very slow. I expect some samples to be sent out to reviewers in four weeks or less. I've got my fingers crossed on a pre-order discount though. :bigsmile_face:

The pricing is a little steep for HFM, not bad though. I'm hoping that an early adopter discount will ease the pain a bit. I know that there is no question that I'll get these. Just hoping that those tweaked drivers don't disappoint.

I dunno about u guys but I like some heft to my cans.  Makes them feel all expensive and stuff when I lift them up and others lift them up.  I'm pretty anal!  

 

The Beyer T1 and Sennheiser HD800 both feel nice and solid to me though, and I think those are in the 300g category as well.  Just as long as something is in the 200s or less then it starts feeling like junk.

The T1 is a good bit heavier than the hd800. Both are comfortable though. I don't need any extra weight to make me feel special. :p The lighter the better. I thought that the Sony ma900 would simply be too light at it's ridiculously low weight. I found it to be the most comfortable hp that I've ever worn.

The OMG HEAVY W1000x feels really light on your head! At 350g it's held nicely by that wing system!

I really like the new look and think the head band will be a good improvement. I'm very interested to hear how they sound, I know Steve says they're more transparent than the HE-400 but I'd like to know if they toned the treble down because if they did along with better transparency and better fit & comfort I'd get a pair for sure.

I am all for lighter the better also, especially if they sound good.

Was looking to pull the trigger on some HE 400's but I guess I'll wait and see.

The are a lot of good things about the he400. BUT...of course we are all expecting the 400i to take everything to the next level...comfort, sound, pad quality. We can only wait for the reviews and March to roll around.

Hope to see some reviews soon. I'd love to see the 400i with a bit of toned down treble and more prominent upper mids, those were the only major faults of the original IMO.

For $500 it seems like a pragmatic option. I've already tried HE400/500 and the only other orthos are way too expensive brand new.

I honestly don't mind heavy headphones. I guess its one of the few perks of being fat :tongue_smile:

Honestly, if the HE-400i sorts out the sonic issues of the HE-400 (treble and upper mids) and retains it's positive aspects (speed, bass) whilst being lighter, more comfortable, and only $100 more, then Hifiman have a real winner on their hands here.
