Would you rather have these or AKG K7XX
Akg has wider soundstage and a bit better imaging, he4xx better freq response, same bass, same mids, same trebs, BUT this is based on reviews, I had k702 and not he400i..I hope this helps..
Edit: AKG is known to be more comfy, but he4xx is also comfortable, just not so much as k7xx..I think k7xx better overall, hmm..p.s. you can buy ear ring adapters for both headphones and add any earpads you'd like.
akg has much bigger and more defined soundstage.
Build quality on the AKG's isn't supposed to be the greatest, while the 4XXs are supposedly very solid. Not having a pair of either I cannot confirm this, just based off reviews and rumors. If it makes a difference, I just ordered the 4XX and decided a while back to not go 7XX. Hope this helps!
Having used both, the 7XX are a pain once you're used to the sound. Literally. They have a peak at the high vocal treble that is incredibly sibilant. It literally hurts to listen on them.
I own the 7xx and the build quality on mine are pretty good and very light.
