 Seeing as they increased the volume and all... Does it play better with Harder to drive headphones on the higher end of the volume control..?? Ive yet to actually try my HP with a pair of HD600's etc, so im wondering how it fairs now.
 This is interesting... Plays louder then before. Hmmm 
 Hope you enjoy the HE500 :) Used a pair with a DACmini a few years back, they just sounded unnatural and non engaging to me so i sold them off in the end. I wouldn't say the HE-500 is a big step up from the X2 as i prefer the dynamic sound a whole lot more then planars. You may have a better experience then myself though. The O2 should drive them ok if you head in that direction.
 Everyone's experience is totally different. The reason why i bring up the LCD-X is that it was brought onto the market to be used with lower powered sources. Phones and portable amps... So saying it is harder to drive then the X2 seems pretty left field seeing as its a Planar and all. Specs are nearly identical as well. Something like the HE-6 i can understand with the sensitivity being so low and all. BTW im not trying to argue, i just find your statement a little wierd...
 Dude.. they all have pretty much exactly the same specs. Go figure eh. Going from my Note 4 to my Concero HP is a big step up in sound quality imo. Yes they may be easy to drive but they do scale well with a better source/amp. LCD-X:SpecificationsStyle Open circumaural  Transducer type Planar magnetic Magnetic structure Proprietary push-pull design Magnet type Neodymium Transducer size 106 mm Maximum power handling 15W (for 200ms) Sound pressure...
  ..... So that means the Ether, LCD-X and other similar headphones wont scale well.... 
Both of these have about 5hrs use each. Bought the Beyers from the Massdrop sale a few weeks back and the Fostex are a 3-4 months old off amazon Japan. Both are in pristine condition and come with all the original packing, receipts, accessories etc. DT-1350 - $230AUD shipped within Aus Fostex TE-05 - $110AUD shipped within Aus I will go halfs in the paypal fees with the buyer.
Did i say larger stage meant picking out instruments easier..? No... I said it was probably the angled drivers helping out. Also it is quite a revealing headphone, yes. The DT990 and T90 sound thin in comparison, especially in the midrange. I have also previously owned a pair of K602's and i agree the soundstage was pretty darn impressive on them.
I have owned both the DT990 and T90s.. the X2 has a wider stage then both, pretty sure its the angled drivers. I can easily pick out instruments with it. The T90 and DT990 have more treble and sound a hell of alot brighter. The T90 is a detail monster and gave me fatigue after 30mins use.
