Did the HE400's just come out?

    I'm thinking of buying the HE400's, but reading this thread, it looks relatively new: http://www.head-fi.org/t/586885/new-hifiman-headphone-he-400-is-out
     
    I plan on pairing up the HE400 with a Fiio E11 portable amplifier. Good combination? Or should I pick a better amp? I've got a laptop that I bring to the office and home everyday. I code and occassionally like to listen to music to keep me going through the day. So I am pretty much on the go all the time.
     
    My music genre: classical, house, deep house, hiphop. And the occasional alternative rock.

    The HE400's are an open headphone and so will leak sound and let outside noise in. They are also plannars and a bit heavier than normal dynamic headphones. If you are cool with this then...
     
    IEMcrazy will inform you about what amp they need etc, look him up. He's a very helpful chap and loves the HE400's.

    That thread was started in late Dec 2011, so the headphones have been out for 8 full months now. There's also been a revision to the drivers (fixing failure rates and an overly warm/muddy sound, based on what I've read).
    Is that still too new for your liking?
