[QUOTE="Wolfetan"][QUOTE="kris9031998"]One thing i never understood is why people think the he-400's are so heavy. Before i bought them, that was pretty much the biggest "draw" from them, comfort and weight. Neither bother me at all, i mean i feel them on my head, yes, but it isn't annoying. Gets better with time, definitely. I think sometime this year i should get a nice ~$300 portable to go with them, possible the m100's or the sony mdr 1r's. Maybe even the sennheiser momentum's.kris9031998
Get the Mad Dogs by Mr.Speakers.. What were you thinking, Darth!

Pssh, they aren't portable at all. Plus, the he-400's outclass them

How aren't they portable?? Also, how an you make that assumption, people say it sounds as good as a LCD-2..

They aren't portable seeing as they are over 400g and need more power than the he-400's. Plus, they're full size and can't be folded. How WOULD they be portable? And my assumption comes from this

I would consider them portable, just need a Ray Samuels SR-71B also, he just says that there not a "fun" can. I like a headphone thats very neutral and the song gives energy, not the headphone. Just my opinion though:)

That's still another $200 for a portable amp, not really worth it....seeing as the mad dogs are full sized and aren't foldable at all

I'm probably going to wait it out, i feel that v-moda recognizes their mistakes in the m100 and will attempt to make a new headphone by 2014, using head-fi's help

#69 Posted by NamelessPlayer (7729 posts) -
I just got those HE-400s (with velour pads) to review for a week, and first impressions are pretty good. I'm driving them from the headphone jack on my Onkyo TX-SV515PRO receiver. (No, I didn't take the picture upside-down. Blame Dropbox for rotating images for no reason.) -Build quality is what a $350-400 headphone should be. Solid and durable throughout. -Comfort is actually pretty good. They're much lighter than I expected (seriously, people call these things heavy?), the velour pads feel nice, and clamping force isn't bothering me as much as it does on some other headphones. The only thing is that the earcups are a little small, so the top and bottom of my earlobes touch the pads, which feels a little weird coming from Stax Lambda series sets where that doesn't usually happen. -The mids, thankfully, aren't horribly recessed like some people make it out to be. It's still not a mid-centric headphone as bass and treble notes tend to step a bit in front of the vocals, but the vocals still have enough presence that I don't think they're really falling into the background music as a whole. -Sense of clarity is pretty good. I'm guessing this is something that planar driver structures tend to excel at, whether driven with magnetic or electrostatic force. -Soundstage is good. It doesn't have the sheer "airiness" or vastness of a Stax Lambda where it seems like the atmosphere itself is singing to you, but those sets best even the AD700 at soundstaging, which is no small feat. Still, I can see the HE-400 being a decent gaming headphone because of this. Overall, I'm actually liking the HE-400. Wouldn't trade in my SR-Lambda to get one, but it's still a headphone I'd consider buying down the road.

Just my AV Reciever so far and they're sounding great through it. I'll dig out an adapter tomorrow and try them with my Fiio E6, although being open back (and not mine...) they won't be used on the go.

Ah, they would be so much better out of a tube amp like a Woo Audio WA6, they neeeeeeeed a good amp, but since its not yours, it doesn't really matter:P. Well, I may be putting wood cups on my DT880's and getting them from MartinCustomAudio:D

Haven't heard the Lambda, but overall your impressions sound much like my thoughts about them. Soundstage isn't huge, but detail and instrument separation is excellent. It's a "fun" sound thanks to the slightly emphasized treble and bass without being too colouring. Comfort is surprisingly good, at least I can wear them for hours without feeling them, couldn't say the same for my previous Beyers. For the price it's a great headphone that works with pretty much all genres, it's surprisingly bassy with music that actually demands it too.

The Lambda amp system is the same Onkyo receiver, but with the speaker taps connected to a Stax SRD-7/SB. The receiver's literally there on my computer desk just to serve as an oversized headphone amp, and a speaker amp + transformer box is much, much cheaper than a dedicated Stax amp like the SRM-1/Mk2 Pro or SRM-T1. (Those run from around $350 to $600 second-hand, which costs more by itself than most Lambda-series Stax sets for sale. Then you get into the top-of-the-line stuff like the rare SRM-T2, KGSSHV and Blue Hawaii SE, where you're spending $2,000 to $5,000 on a headphone amp...) The ODAC was actually an unexpected addition that I didn't know about until everything was shipped to me. Those first impressions were made using my X-Fi Titanium HD as the source, but I'll probably test the ODAC before I send it and the HE-400 off to the next person. (We have a sort of "open sink" thing going with this stuff, where hardware gets passed around for each person on the sink list to review, with the only cost being shipping to the next person. It does rely immensely on trust throughout the chain, though.) [QUOTE="spittis"]Haven't heard the Lambda, but overall your impressions sound much like my thoughts about them.

Most people haven't heard a Stax set before (save for hardcore audiophiles who are probably on SR-007s, SR-009s, or Sennheiser Orpheus systems by now), so I'm not surprised. I'm just the odd case where I managed to snag a Stax Lambda with a transformer box for just $250 as my upgrade path from the Audio-Technica AD700 (my first half-decent headphone). Best deal I'll ever get on headphones at this rate. The HE-400 definitely shatters my concerns about a bassy headphone having bass that smashes the rest of the spectrum; it'll deliver when it's called for, but ONLY when it's called for.

I'll be honest, at 300ohms i wasn't sure how the receiver would do, but they sound amazing. Need to find a 1/4 to 3.5mm adapter to try them with my fiio though.

Appreciate it! Yeah The Polk/Denon mix is nice, those TSI's give off a nice wide sound field. Always wanted to hear the DT880, what amp are you going to drive the 600ohms on?

JDSLabs O2/ODAC. I just got the 600!:D

I found it to be better then the 250 ohm. I listened to Last Flowers to the Hospital on both, and on the 600 the piano was a lot lighter I thought. I like:D Just sent them to MartinCustomAudio to get wood cups done! And sent my 250 ohm's back to Amazon. I'm rolling with AKG K167's right now, which I dont particuarly like.

I just recently bought some Sennheiser HD 205 headphones. They're not flashy but money is pretty tight right now. They're tight fitting but cut out external noise really well.

astro_1.jpgIhave Astro A30/A40
Astro makes some great headsets, and has been a popular choice specifically among gamers in recent years. The $199 retail A30 and $249 retail A40 sound systems sound great, both come with removable or retractable microphones, and sport an external mix-up that sits between your headset and your sound source to amplify your audio, whether you're listening to music, playing video games, or sitting in a video conference or internet call, you're guaranteed solid sound and voice. Depending on whether you use the cables or the mixamp, you can connect an Astro headset to your computereither via USB or 3.5mm jacks, and the microphone can be attached or detached as necessary. Bonus: the magnetic tags on the ears are customizable to suit your style.
