Product Description
Many headphone companies have tried their hand at planar magnetic drivers, but none have done it quite like HIFIMAN. The result of founder Dr. Fang’s PhD research at Columbia University, its driver technology has landed the company in TIME, Forbes, and CNET’s “The Audiophiliac,” and won it the CES Editors’ Choice Award Read More

I received my HE4xx in Sept. 2020 and I have to say its not what I expected from descriptions! The highs are not harsh or sibilent at all, if anything it is a bit veiled, but pleasant. does anyone know if there had been modifications done on recent modells?

They need burn in. After 3 days the highs do come down.

Good sound, but the cable is too short and it doesn't lie well. By this it is in the way and rubs on the arm. Also the angled plug is not really beneficial, as it makes it more difficult to unplug and turn the plug to straighten the cable. Does anyone know an affordable 3m replacement cable ? At Amazon I only found the Beyerdynamic Audiophile Cable for T1 and T5 p (2nd generation), but the 3m version costs nearly as much as the headphones themselves, about €125, this is far too much. This narrows the otherwise very good price/performance ratio of the product.

Saw someone using Mogami 2534 for the entire headphone cable, makes sense, will look for again.

It was this cable maker on on ebay that I had seen, they are in the states, but you could ask for aHE4XX cable in bare 2534 and see what they say € w/shipping, or there may be a custom shop where you are. I found most diy'ng own in 2534. https://www.ebay.com/itm/15-Sennheiser-HD6XX-HD650-HD600-HD580-HD525-Headphone-Cable/351756500245?hash=item51e6523d15:g:-JoAAOxyg6pRFpLf

Has anyone had problems with clicking sounds in one earcup? I got these today and there is a clicking sound in the left earcup when I move my head/ when I walk. Kind of disappointed, as I was looking forward to enjoying these...

Exactly. As long as it works when I’m listening to it I don’t care. This can is excellent and I keep going back to it and have yet to find anything in a higher tier that competes for my taste. Hoping the Arya will do it for me.

You can’t fail QC if you don’t have a QC process. ;)

Does anyone know any tricks in getting the weight down? I'm giving my pair to a 61 year old with neck problems. She loves the sounds so I'm going to mod them as much as possible to lower the weight. I already put lighter pads on but I want to do more than that. Thanks for any help that you can provide

No problem. The headphones are much more comfortable compared to the stock band and much lighter. Just be aware the holes in the v560 for the ear cups are larger the screws but should still hold. Mine have so far.

Looking foreword to getting theses. Hopefully It wont take 2 months to get them. As for amp and dac.... do you think a Sony home audio recever will be fine untill I can get a good amp and dac? As it stand right now, I am using optical out of my MacPro and into a Sony receiver. Then using the headphone jack from there.

They are fairly efficient so running them off of anything should be fine. The dedicated amp will be an improvement but definitely not necessary

Hello everyone. I received the HIFIMAN HE4XX headphones today. And while I am enjoying the sound quality, I am concerned about the clamp force. I do not like the headband, but I have been to adjust it so that it barely touches the top of my head. It is too hard. As some reviewers have stated, it should have some padding. Does the clamp force lessen and loosen up over time? How much time did it take until that occurred for some of you guys? Should I change the earpads? Any recommendations? To elaborate, it doesn't itch, but the inner ear hole is too small. I am reluctant to change the earpads if it changes the sound signature, although I am open to it if it means more comfort. Note: I have a medium-large head. I hate it. It's the main reason why I have been "stuck" with my Audio Technica ATH AD700x for so long, even if they droop down a bit because of the wings that Audio Technica keeps ignoring customer feedback.

For earpads look into dekoni. They have very comfortable earpads. They also provide response graphs for each pad to compare to stock so you can have an idea of how it may alter the sound. I went with perforated lambskin and find them more comfortable than stock. I think the earhole is slightly larger as well. Probably the best mid for the headband would be to somehow transplant the cups to the 400s style.

The clamp should loosen up within a week or two, so hopefully that's already sorted out when you read this.

I don’t know how I did it but I poked a hole through the diaphragm on the right side driver. Looking for a parts 4XX, doesn’t matter how destroyed it is as long as the driver still works.
