Panasonic EAH-500 - Page 2post #16 of 358/18/09 at 7:31pmThis weekend I've bought a Technics EAH-500 - they looks the same except the Technics name on the headband. Pretty nice sound I'd say - the drivers are pretty big too. I put some fotos if I find time.

Popular Science - Google Bücher

In terms of details and soundstage Revox are ahead, BUT: in terms of bass depth and impact the EAH500 are noticeably better!
I tested it on Chemical Brothers "Surrender" and Björk tracks.post #27 of 353/24/10 at 7:40pmspent some time with the eah-520
sound is decent, bass and mids have good texture, highs are just ok. smallish soundstage. compared to the pioneer portables of the day (se-2, 4, and 6) i give the edge to the pioneers, especially in the bass and comfort. mids and mid highs belong to the panasonicpost #28 of 354/27/10 at 10:45ampost #29 of 357/8/10 at 4:43am
Mine arrived, boxed and like new. Initial sound impressions are not great with a lack of detail and muddy bass. The original warranty is still there and is dated in 1980.
EDIT - I am getting the bass now, rocking!

I'm reviving this old thread because this is the best info on these headphones on the entire web.
I got interested in the vintage headphones and EAH500 caught my attention as it's listed on the 416 headphone museum list and there was a recent cheap ebay listing that I lost as I was trying to enter last minute from my cell phone and the connection was too slow!
My question is RE: the frequency response on the band. Looks incredibly flat, but not sure of the scale on the dB. Is this within 3 dB or more like 10 dB?
How about sensitivity. Is Ipod good enough for those?
I'm personally using Sony MDR-V6 and think they are reasonably flat and sound great for my (non-audiophile) listening. Is this going to be an upgrade from Sony?
I like Sony for deep bass, high sensitivity (anything can drive them), sound isolation, and comfort.
The only things I don't like about Sony the trebles are very sharp (peaky near 10kHz) and roll over way before 15 kHz:
