Oh mai

HE 400i at ¥1249 on taobao, almost same price as the HD6XX !!!!
I don't know which to choose now.

Any experts can pls advice?

I already have a Philip X2....
I will suggest you save the money and go for next tier or a closed back(if that is your thing). The difference between all these aren't big enough to justify another purchase IMO.

I not expert, just saying you should trust your ears. Bring down your X2 and test the he400i and hd650 at Stereo to decide.

If you plan to go high end and hit end game then good for you. I'm relatively new to audio and for me the journey is just as important as my destination. But if you watch the headfi video on the 6xx, he made a few valid points. And not forgetting psychoacoustics...

It's super easy to get stuck in mid-fi purgatory too. But yeah, your preference in sound signature will change. I used to love the sound sig of the HD-650 way back, now I find it too dark and leaning towards neutral. Talking about MD headphone collabs, I love the TH-X00.

i bought a real hd650 from amazon uk for just slightly more after pound crashed and before price adjustment

this is still a steal though, but you need an amp.

Congrats, I got in too. I received the confirmation email 3 minutes after drop started so should be below #500, hopefully...

I didn't receive any email from massdrop, only an authorization from my PayPal balance.

They'll have to honor since money is taken away. I guess?
