    Glad you can hear with your eyes, the rest of us will wait patiently to hear it.
    What if the posted a graph identical to Focal Utopias? Would you be first in line to buy it?

    Measurements can tell you things like bass extension or treble perkiness, the HE400i’s biggest flaws

    I won't bore you with quotes of people who after looking at graphs and hearing a headphone say "well I didn't hear this roll off or that spike" but it seems to be literally every thread on head-fi.
    At the moment the best we can do is speculate and hope that any problems on the HE-400i is fixed but we wont know for certain until pairs start circulating REGARDLESS of the presence of graphs.

    Measurements can certainly be a handy tool and I wouldn't giving them a look. But did quite enjoy the demo when I heard them at RMAF and would love them give them a longer listen.

    My dealer (Underwood Hi-Fi - highly recommended) says this will ship the week after Christmas.

    My pair is on order.

    How do you have it on order already?

    Call Walter at Underwood Hi-Fi and he'll put one on order for you too if you want one! When his first shipment comes in I get one!

    So I got this email from Hifiman customer service, I was asking about where they positionthe new Sundara in their line up. Take t with a grain of salt since they could just be hyping a new product:

    “Hi there, its not really a smooth positioning. Personally I think they trade wins. The 560 I like more when powered really well but the Sundara runs great out of pretty much anything so its way more versatile. The Sundara being more easy to drive tends to be a little more vigerous in the bottom end than the 560 too.”

    Hi

    My question is that is this good buy?
    I want upgrade hp but I'm little confuse which o e I should get....

    Elex, this sundara, maybe aeon open, focal clear.

    I would spend 500-800..

    You have HD800's, yes? I have HD800S's and the Clear. The Clear is a 'side-grade'. I enjoy them both, would have a hard time saying which is 'better'. I heard the Hifiman 4XX and was amazed at how enjoyable it was. You might want to consider the Sundara just 'for fun'.
     
  15. Hifiearspeakers
    Is the treble more relaxed on the Clear vs 800S? How is the soundstage on the Clear?
