Pros: Amazing sound, worth much more than they cost. Rugged, fun, and engaging!

Cons: Clamp could be a little better.

Best value and sounding headphones you'll ever find for EDM. :)


Do not delay, get a pair today!! For $50 you can't go wrong with these.


Carbon Nanotube technology ftw!


Comfort 5 stars?
You need to try out some well used HD555 or HD600/650... The S500 have pretty bad comfort even for an on-ear.
I dont have a weirdly shaped head unlike other people so the S500s I can wear for hours and hours without discomfort.
I'm thinking of getting these, do they have deep bass good for dubstep?
I still haven't seen a satisfactory comparison of the HAS400 and HAS500. I would love to see a circumaural headphone with carbon nanotube drivers and velour earpads.
Why didn't they take the HAS400 drivers and put them in a compact enclosure, and have a metal headband like the HAS650 has? I love the sound on the HAS400 but hate the bulky plastic headband and bulky enclosures.
@fir3st0rm You're better off going for the successor which is HA-S680, its just been released in Japan and lots of people are ordering. I put an order in for mine earlier this week.

@JK1 There are loads of comparisons out there, not sure what you mean by satisfactory?
