See More Reviews After 2 years of owning these. I've decided to get the Ananda from Hifiman because of these.
Proof of purchase date: https://imgur.com/a/BzMav9i
I own the HD 660 S, BLON B20s, Bass Audio G12s, HD 600s, HD 58X, Koss Porta Pros, KSC75s, TIN P1s.
Using a THX 789 and SMSL SU-8 balanced to power them.
I always come back to the HE4XX. They have an extreamly pleasing sound signature that I just can't get enough of..I want more so I've purchase the Ananda.
The HE4XX scale in sound quality (depth, intimacy, & width) with different amplifiers. I don't recommend them if you have anything less than a THX 789 at your disposal. Schiit Fulla 2 for example or Audioengine D1 for lower end amplifiers. (Other lower end amplifiers I didn't mention apply)
The HE4XX sound character on my THX 789 made me purchase the Ananda. I'm in love with Hifimans sound signature on these and I'm hoping the same is true with the Ananda. I've mainly purchased the Ananda because I want something different but I also want to hear improvements to the overall sound Hifiman have shown me with this headphone.
These are my daily driver...Well these and my HD 660 S which in some cases sound better for vocals in comparison but only by a small amount.
Thanks for reading my short review!

Would recommend to a friend.
Revised. Reading back on that I agree it didn't make much sense.
Although "SQ" is sound quality.
