    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    @jksoon thanks for the reply. The various LCD-2 revisions I've tested have always been a bit harder to drive than the 400i's I've tested, though I've been out of the loop for a year now, so I don't know what the current situation is, perhaps somebody else could chime in on that. Perhaps there's...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Thanks, your words earlier did actually cheer me up mentally! It's so nice to see peeps coming back to thread to discuss the headphones, time and again. But yeah, things are slowly creeping towards status quo - had no time whatsoever to hang around here in the first six months of the year...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    As I saw this, I had to respond, so that people do not take erroneous information as fact. (As 400i has the same efficiency as 4XX?), the Grace m9xx doesn't run out of steam with the 400i, even when factoring various listening levels people have, period. Full volume doesn't blow out the driver...

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    I've read this thread while it progressed, and once again in full a couple of months back, I think there's a guy, or two? who might've thought there's not that much difference between the tube and rest of the modes? How many are actually reporting this, as in, is this even a thing :P

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    Hi, and thanks for the reply! Indeed, in the imgur album, the measurements between #10-15 are from Freya "itself": 10-12 Freya with different modes -> RCA isolator -> RCA splitter, where the other end is going to Vidar (so we could audibly verify the hum), and the measurements are from the...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    @Jordaldo +25dB peak boost, and no negative preamp value (well, it's +0.1 :P), will certainly cause problems. PM me if you're interested in "proper" EQing. The red in your analysis panel is red for a reason.

    Well, there's these measurements: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/hifiman-he-400i-impressions-and-discussion.698974/page-882#post-13816697 Basically any leather one which is thicker/has more height than the stock one.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Yeah, @Paradoxus , angled leather pads where the height is bigger than the stock pads gives a small increase in sub-bass, see my earlier posts #1, #2. There's always small changes when changing pads, some for the better, some parts might be caveats for you, depending on your personal...

    Europe Deals Thread

    I wonder if this actually viable, haven't seen any posts about it :P Yeah, didn't check CDON.eu, if the Black Friday deal was up there as well, at least it was on national webstores, no idea if the national ones ship abroad either...

    Europe Deals Thread

    They had an annoying revealing couple of deals every hour - for 24 hours-thing going on, couldn't be arsed to check them every hour. I think @Kermeli got a pair, twas sold out after 8 hours methinks, when I checked em again during the night. Anyways saving money for other stuff anyways, but I...

    Europe Deals Thread

    No need to apologize. I never buy anything by their MSRP, besides the Schiit I'm currently after, for obvious reasons. It's a pretty long penny with 30-50% off from 2000€ gear :P For example Z1R was 999€ just this Black Friday on CDON.fi, all beyerdynamics, incl. the T1mk2 with 40% off etc.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    One word: Sundara. I think they've been great value for their money, even for 500$, if you got them a couple of years back - related to the competition and pricing back then, you shouldn't feel that they were overpriced. The Black Friday 2015 and misc deals since have lowered the price (MSRP...
