Great headphone, particularly for the price. I'd had both the 400s and 400i on my Amazon wish list just to keep an eye on the prices, thinking if they went low enough I'd grab one or the other. Then I heard these at a friend's house and joined the next drop.
They're a nice compliment to the HD6XXs. Different signature. HD6XX is more organic, HE4XX is more Hi-Fi. I switch between them depending on what I'm in the mood for. They're pretty comfortable, but not as comfortable as the Senns (after all what is?).
Minor quibble, I wish the cable was a little longer. I don't really consider these an outdoor, walking around headphone (fairly big, not all that light, open back) so I don't see the point of a 4' cable. I'm going to end up getting an extender.
If you want to experience planar magnetics, or if you just want a great bang for the buck set of headphones, you won't regret going for these.
in my experience the Sennheiser HD598SE is much more comfortable and has better build quality than the HD6xx. The pad on HD6xx is really bad: shallow and hard. My ear touch the cup and the pads is not plush and cheaply made compare to the HD598SE, the Bose, Sony etc..
