A note to the readers here, I'm moving away from headphones and have listed my HE-500s as well as an amp, DAC, and extras if anyone is interested. 
I have a stock Bifrost up for grabs. It's in very good shape and works great. Getting out of the headphone game so I'm selling it all. Please check out my other listings. Listed price includes shipping to CONUS. Other areas or lower offers? PM me and let's talk.  
Selling my upgraded EF5 amp. Has 2 extra tubes and the OPA627AP opamp upgrade. Listed price includes shipping.
Bought new with original leatherette case. In very good condition (if you check out my feedback, you'll find that I keep everything in tip top shape). The headphones currently have the Focus Pad-A ear pieces installed but also have the stock pleather and a pair of the original Jerg mod ones. I'm also selling 3 sets of cables. Two that I made from Canare StarQuad and one that was professionally made. That one is the black/gray weave. As you can see, one of the DIY ones is...
I just stumbled onto this thread and there's a lot to read but I too believe, and have stated as much, that a lot of audiophilia is exactly like religion.

Some of that may be due to the seal, but electrostatics aren't known for their bass anyway. As for the claimed frequency response, numbers can be deceiving and we all hear differently too.   Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying they aren't great IEMs, but for that money I can get a pair of Audeze's that do have LFE right out of the box and don't need a...
I'm sure (no pun intended) that these sound wonderful, but I'd no more pay that much for something that isn't "full range" than I would home stereo speakers that had a frequency response of 50Hz - 20kHz and with home speakers I could add a subwoofer. 
If you buy these at the current price and pick up shipping, I'll throw in a pair of older model Shure E3 IEMs.
