Anyone else have these strange lines on the grills visible only from an angle?

Yes I did notice that as well. I was wondering if mine was unique but evidently not. Maybe it's only our 2 headphones. Screw the serial number, we got the real collector items.

Ha, mine are really unique. Right cup has faint lines; left does not!

I wouldnt. Its a minor issue in my eyes. In addition, it's not like they are showroom centerpieces or anything. Play your music and sit in bliss.

They are really good, aren’t they? I bought them for around the house since they were less than half what I paid for a pair of 650s. I pair them with a Topping NX4 portable DAC/amp playing FLAC off my iPhone. Definitely not less than half the enjoyment.

They are very fun headphones. The bass presence is strong, ample, and clean. The highs have a good amount of energy and aren't polite as the 6XX. I prefer these. I recommend the HE4XX as they are truly some great headphones at a bargain if you want to go deeper down the rabbit hole. Im pretty much sold on the hifiman sound signature minus the QC issues. ahaha

I got a late run of the HE-4XX and I hate to admit but I prefer that sound signature. QC gets better as hifiman makes more. I’m already thinking Sundara when the price comes down and quality has improved.

When eBay does their typical bi-weekly(ish) 15% off coupon you can get a decent discount on the sundaras from their ebay store. Max discount is usually $100 off if Im not mistaken.
