I see alot of people are disappointed with the Massdrop HE350.
There was lot of hype on the massdrop HE350 as well.
I wonder how this headphone will be review in the future.
There were no review units of the 350s sent out to actual real reviewers/qualified audio engineers/etc. The few that were put out before/during the drop went to people who were completely and utterly clueless about headphones or audio in general.
This is not the case with the 4XX. Plenty of very knowledgeable people who are very prominent in the community have gotten them for review and all of them have liked them (albeit potentially being a little strident and peaky in certain areas which can be easily modded away; see SBAF thread). I don't think you'll be disappointed with these, I didn't get the 350s either because they just felt like a weak pitch - these are quite the opposite.
I joined this one and I hope it lives up to the explosive popularity
