Hi 

I am looking for a new headphone and I am a little bit lost .So I need your help about Which one to choose between the following headphones and why? :

HD 700

Alot of good reviews and also Alot of bad ones related to its highly prices when started.

Excellent warranty 2 years

Made in Ireland

429$

 

HE 400i

Great Planar Magnetic driver headphone 

Warranty 1 year for only (Hifiman and authorized dealers) customers which is bad

Poor customer support 

Made in China

476$

 

So if you need to pick one for yourself which one you will choose? or you maybe pick up a different Headphones within 500$ range so feel free to write down your choices

 

Thanks

What Amp do you have? The two headphones you are looking at would work best with different types of amps. Planars like the power at lower ohms and the HD-700 at higher end.

Both are great IMO.  My advice is that you should not be asking what would other choose since you will be the one listening.  You should read reviews and maybe people will post here to determine the 'type' of sound each produces and then pick the HP that produces the type of sound you like. 

 

Some HP are detailed and accurate (HE-400i) for example.  Others are warm and soft or mellow.  Others are bright, some are bassy.  Some are known to not have much bass.   I don't think either pair you mention is a dog so find what suits your personal tastes.
