HiFiMAN HE-400 Supra-Aural Headphones : Have to be heard to be believed

Amazing headphones, very happy with them, and love the musical sound.

Amazing headphones, very happy with them, and love the musical sound.

Have to be heard to be believed. I got a pair of beyerdynamic t90 & had to send them back as they did not work. So in the interim i treated myself to the above & the improvement was incredible, these cans are without a doubt the best headphones i have owned. Clear, detailed ,great soundstage to the point that you think you are in the studio. So much so i blew another £135 on a hifiman cable upgrade & they sound fantastic. I have decided to use my beyer’s as a second pair, i think the 400s are a true bargain if you are like me a serious music lover.

I have had these now for almost 2 years and these are truly stunning in every sense of the world. I use the njc monitor ii hpa with these and the result is a musical odyssey. I must however mention that be very careful with the cables. I ripped off the hp cables easily (my bad) and now considering a replacement cable.

Brilliant for $400 or £250. When i originally got into this hobby some 2 years ago, my first run of purchases included sennheiser hd650’s, denon d5000 and ultrasone pro900’s. I also had a couple beaters from koss laying around like the porta pros (which i like). So upon purchasing my first true head amp (a fiio e10) i thought my journey was over. I had an amazing closed headphone, an amazing open headphone, a decent amp/dac. Lets close the book on this consumer business and listen to some music. From there i focused a good amount of my energy on (a) fixing up my 54 lincoln and (b) mechanical watches. . I was in the throws of said watch obsession waiting for steinhart to fill inventory on the ocean 44 dive watch when i saw an episode of “how it’s made” on tv at the akg factory in austria where they take you through the steps of construction on one of the k702’s. . Oh i like thosesince steinhart was pushing their restock date back to august. Maybe i can spend some of that money that is burning a hole in my pocket on a pair of headphones. . But this time reading through forums, websites and reviews the kiss of death was bestowed on the k701 and 702 (which were my knee jerk target purchase after watching the show) but words like: lacking bass, thin sounding, airy and very neutral were intertwined into descriptions of their sound. I cannot handle thin sounding anything. I’ve been to too many live shows to be able to pass off a thin sound as accurate. Also (to me) the word “neutral” conjures up images of a lifeless two dimensional sound that is lacking pace rhythm& and attack. Neutral is about as exciting as flati cannot imagine an oem that would enjoy reading a review of their products, headphones, speakers or otherwise as “very flat and neutral”. So after jettisoning the 702 notion on its face, further headfi forum reading of ‘this vs that’ impressions and product reviews and general chatter brought forth numerous mentions of a new player in the game.
