[Visions Electronics] HIFIMAN HE-400i Free Shipping

Hope I'm doing this right. The HE-400i, a well reviewed headphone, is currently deeply discounted at visions with free shipping. Sale ends today.

Inflated discount. These usually go around the $275-300 mark. It's still a good price though, I think.

I bought these last year from Visions for the same price. They were definitely the best sounding headphones I've ever owned, making music fun to listen to. I compared these to a pair of Denon AH-D1001's and some Sennheiser earbuds, and the others sounded veiled and boring in comparison. By default they were too weak in the bass for my tastes, but I have an old NAD integrated amp with bass/treble controls, and once the bass level was raised, they still sounded clean while also really powerful. Be forewarned that I needed to crank up the volume to maximum on my Cowon iAudio 7 music player for a good listening level, so a powered amp is pretty much a prerequisite for these.

Although I knew ahead of time that the open-backed design would leak sound, I was unprepared for how much (somewhere between 50% to 75% the "interior" volume). At normal listening volumes, other people in the house could easily hear what I was listening to through a closed door, so unfortunately that was a deal-breaker for me. But if that's not a problem for you, I think these headphones offer great value for the money.

Pretty much the same price as Amazon.ca. Not really a deal.

Seriously, how much better will it be? Unless you have super hearing, you won't be able to notice.

They had this sales price multiple times last year . Still waiting for the price to drop below 200 or even 150.

Difference is night and day actually, no super hearing required.

Good price, got mine for $300 at visions a while back.

That said for similar pricing I prefer either the seinheiser 6xx or the monoprice 1060 more.

The 400i is very forgettable I found

Hmm interesting I felt the exact opposite, especially after I replaced the stock earpads on the 400i with some ZMF ori pads which greatly helps with bass.

I bought this for $180 US on sale last month from buydig. Often goes on sale as a new model is out.
