Looking to change from He-400i to HD650 - Wise move?
« on: February 18, 2017, 05:12:09 PM »
Hi all,

So I'm working my way up to 50 posts with the aim to put these up for a trade/sale.

I'm wanting to move to something more like the HD650 and what sort of change should I expect? Would this be considered a good move or what? I prefer a slightly warmer signature that the He400i's are obviously not designed for. Perhaps even something closed.

What sort of headphones would you suggest that I trade/save for here in SA?

Thanks all!

HE-400i is a decent pair. While HD650 is a superior headphone in my book we need some more info ... what music do you listen to? What are you driving or intend driving your cans with? What do you like and dislike about the Hifiman's? What do you want to accomplish with the change of cans?

Yes I guess you need to be a bit more clear on the music you listen for the forum to make suggestions.
