The HE-500s are a very good headphone, I like them a lot as well. Not more that the HE-5LEs though, and certainly not more that the HE-6. However, if I were to own two, it would the the HE-500 and the HE-6 or the HE-500 and the HE-5LEs. The HE-500 have a different voicing compared to the other two. The draw back to the HE-500 IMO is it does not scale. Where the other two gets better and better as the quality and power of the amp increases.
i agree partially.
the he-6 is the best without any doubts.
after i put on the same plane the he-500 and the he-5LE.
two diferente sound signatures for different flawours.
The he-5Le is like a baby he-6; the he-500 is more focused on the low and mid frquencies.
i agree about your words but i disagree about the he-500 because, IMHO, the he-500 improves with an improvement of the system.
personally i prefere the he-500 compared to the he-5le
