$30 less than we paid for the last drop, and they still haven’t shipped yet? Very classy move MD.

These have always been $169.99, even at the last drop I’m pretty sure. You might be thinking of the HD6XX?
But anyway, I ordered mine on March 2nd (3 drops ago now) and mine still haven’t shipped either. The anticipated ship date for me is May 15th. The wait has certainly felt longer than 2 months though.

You're right--I must have been confusing them with another drop that took forever and a week to finally ship!
Hope the Old-Folks home I'll likely be living in when these finally arrive allows the residents to use personal music listening devices--as opposed to what the nurse wants to play on the PA:

The waiting is the hardest part. I have been anxiously awaiting the 4xx since I ordered them.
They dropped the day after I returned my 400i because of a cracked yolk. I only had 400i for 3 weeks and was really digging them.

Something to do while you're waiting:

I'm in the same boat. I really hope they ship on time, or earlier even.

Dang, that sucks! I’ve heard similar stories, but I’ve also heard that they used stronger plastic for the yokes on these, so fingers crossed that that‘s true!
I agree that the wait is the hardest part. My birthday is 2 days after the anticipated ship date so hopefully they‘re here or at least shipped by then! When did you order yours?

Ordered my 4xx on the March 2 drop. The 4xx headband design is different than the 400i and supposedly better built.
Happy Birthday in advance.

Ordered mine on that drop as well; can't help noticing they haven't arrived.
Will be mighty pissed if I find out they're not as strong/well-built as a pair of 6XXs.
UPDATE: of course mine have arrived and I'm digging them immensely as I've mentioned elsewhere. No build or QC issues to report at all. Hope things stay that way: I'm pretty gentle with my stuff and probably will never take them out of the house.

I have the same problem but dont know what to do or how to fix it. Its unbearable to listen them with all this crackling in my right earcup. It distorts the hole music.

When did you buy your 400i? They may still be under warranty. Follow up with Hifiman.
Also, I saw that Hifiman is selling studier headphone headbands for 400 & 500 series headphones for $75.
