I've auditioned these with DACmini for about a week. The overall sound is congested and seems to be missing something. Comparing to D5000, these have no fun factor at all. Add the fact that the comfort is much worse, the HE-500s had to go. As always, YMMV.

Need more power than the DACmini to actually perform well, buddy

A DACMini will not provide adequite drive power to get the HE-500's to even a third of what they can acheive.
