    HiFiMan HE4XX

    It's so subjective, really depends. Of course, I can make or buy a better cable than this. Compared with all phones I've owned, this one most closely resembles microphone cable. It's flexible, no microphonics, resists tangles, and sounds as if it has a decent amount of copper. It drags my heavy...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Not all. The Monoprice Monolith m565 is just a shade larger than the Sony Mdr-v6. My open-box pair arrived with a dead cup, but I can tell you the good cup sounded excellect, different than these. For 170, you can get a brand new pair of m565 from Amazon. It sounds like this may be what you're...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    I agree. I downloaded the album with Tidal, with limited expectations. The 4xx provided my first listen, and reintroduced the group with revived vitality. I had thought that, after years of obsession, I had finally tired of Tool's library. Fear Inoculum reinvents and enhances so much of the...

    The 3D Printer Thread! :D

    Lol, that's a great idea to ask for samples. I've lucked out there by accident on other projects, not sure why I never thought of it. I love the baby pillow idea, I'll look into it. It seems like I just haven't found the correct memory foam, perhaps I need to slim the foam near my zygomatic...

    The 3D Printer Thread! :D

    Ohhhh, I love 'alcantara', I had no idea I could find it so easily. You've got it, I've been planning to make pads when I have the time. My roomate has an excellent sewing machine, but I don't always have access. I've been wondering what foam choices are around. Memory is great and all, but I...

    The 3D Printer Thread! :D

    Well, it seems perhaps time to bring this thread back to regularity. Considering you can buy perfectly serviceable printers for under 200 bux, complete with some premium features, I've decided to cool it on buying headphones and use that can cash for something that will allow me to realize my...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    So, just for anyone else wondering: I went back and saw that the worst issue could be a jammed driver, which causes distortion. There were also a few symmetry issues with some cups and yokes. It's quite possible this has any of those issues. Hifiman has been so good about replacements, those...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    You guys are awesome to offer help so quickly. Hifiman has a stellar reputation, I'm beginning to see why. You proactively reached out to address a second-hand product. That's saying something, especially in today's market. When I can afford it, I will likely add more Hifiman to my rack...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Hi everyone! I posted a thread in the diy section, but should ask here: Has anyone had to return these? Why? I just picked up a defective pair on ebay. The seller gave no description of the defect. The shell alone is worth the 50 bux I paid, but of course I'd like to repair if possible. Aside...

    HE-4XX Planar Repair advice?

    Hi everyone! I just impulse-bought a Hifiman HE-4XX for parts on ebay. The decscription only said they're defective, with no further details. Here's my question: I'm not experienced with planars; aside from broken wiring, what might be wrong with these? Of course, I'd like to fix these, but I...

    LG V30

    Ahh, that makes sense. My iems sip power. I just tested the Beyers starting at 26%. It took about 1.5 hrs to go down to 15%. Much longer with in-ear.

    LG V30

    Do you know what impedance you phones are? My G8 also has great listening battery life, I have yet to extensively compare my 250 ohm Beyers to my 32 or 64 ohm cans as far as battery is concerned.

    WTB: Broken Beyer drivers, parts, diy stuff

    Hello, Head-fi-ers, I hope you're having a good day. Does anybody have some dead Beyerdynamic dt770, 880, or 990 drivers? I could use them. Any Superlux hd 330/660 (Beyer ripoff) stuff would be great. I'm using the baffle and other parts in diy cans. Even if you've removed the driver itself...

    DT770 shell with Peerless Vali Driver

    Some details about my current tune: -I just discovered these 30mm thick hybrid donuts really help the treble spike. I have the 105 mm, but the mounting ring looks like the larger sizes will fit. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32920435885.html?spm=a2g0n.shopcart-amp.item.32920435885& 1. The...
