    Yeah, heard them, they're quite nice, but I guess I'm after even more exorbitant, let's see what the Aeon brings to the table, and still need to hear Atticus&Eikon. Not in a hurry!
    Yup, and the 400i seems to measure the same volume with inside the driver and behind the grill, not many headphones do that. The speed/attack of 400i is stupendous. I love it.

    how would the HE560 compare to the current 400i? disregard the price tag, just the performance on the sound department, not biased reviews. anyone.

    HE560 is too strident not just to my ear, but also to some other famous head-fiers. It's FR has even more peaks than the already peaky he400i. If you would like to upgrade, HE1000v2 is a much better choice --- even though the price is higher, you will get a better CP ratio.

    Mail came in today :)

    HEK has always sounded a bit boring to me, a wee bit too laid-back.
    Wouldn't exactly be my first choice, if you'd be after some of the valued characteristics of 400i.

    Agree with you about the HEk being boring, HE-560 is my choice over HEK any day.

    Can someone provide a wiring diagram for fitting the plugs to the cable of the Hifiman HE-400I?
    Someone wants to make me a cable but need to know hows everythings connected.
    And i dont have any measuring tools.
    Standard cable is 2 pole for left and right and a 4 pole connecting plug.
  9. DavidA
    I didn't know that the HE-400i came with a balanced cable and the only way you will find out the wiring is with a meter unless someone has checked this out but I haven't seen any mention of a balanced stock cable yet.

    You are right..[​IMG]
    This is the one..http://store.hifiman.com/index.php/cables/crystalline-cable-3-5mm-trs-plug.html
    My mistake..
  11. Mikko Peltonen

    The stock cable has three pole (TRS) plugs in each ear. The tip is the positive, the middle ring is not connected and the ground is connected to the sleeve. TS plugs are fine for DIY cables.

    Hope the above answers your question on the wiring
  13. Rudi64
    Great Guys,
    Thank you both for helping and clarifying this..[​IMG] top!

    Looking Nice !
    Come these with the plastic ring for connecting to the earcups?

    Should I get the He400i, Oppo PM3 or TH-500RP if I want a very precise headphone with fast music?
