Everything the HE-500 lacks, the HD800 has in excess, and vice versa. The HD800 is the most resolving and clear sounding headphone I have ever heard. The level of detail is truly remarkable and the soundstage imaging, layering, and sheer size makes it fun to listen to. Listening to the HD800 feels like you have a direct connection to the source itself, as if there is no electronic device between your brain and the music. It's being beamed directly into your head. As cliche as it sounds, it's like you are actually there.

On the other hand, the HE-500 imparts its own character into the music. The warm, lush mids, super smooth treble and satisfying bass. You never forget it's there, but you don't want to because it sounds so good. The intimate soundstage is great for vocals. Everything sounds like it's closer to you and somehow more tangible. It's not as resolving of detail as the HD800 but it isn't necessarily a bad thing. It just sounds so effortless and musical as opposed to the more "accurate" HD800 which has a more energetic sound.

I wouldn't want to give either of them up as I enjoy them both immensely, but if I had to keep only one it would be the HE-500.


That's a fine looking collection. I still want to try a T1 but I don't know of any places around here that would have Beyers in stock. Maybe ALO audio. 

Also, that Norse cable is sexy.
Thanks for the detailed response. That' incredible to me that the HD 800 is like a direct connection to the microphone to you. That is the exact reaction I had to the HE 500 upon first listen. Really amazing they pulled that off with a dynamic driver. Again, thanks for the mini review.

If you can find out where they posted their impressions, that would be very interesting to read. I haven't yet seen anyone crazy enough to mod the TH-900, and I've been active on all the threads and an owner since a month or so after they released.

I should have been more specific. I meant on an old denon headphone. I don't think it was head-fi some other headphone site. A gentleman bought some wood cups from Lawton, back then only $89, and drilled a hole only a quarter inch in diameter in the middle of the cups and stuck them on his d5k. If I remember correctly it improved the soundstage but sucked out all the bass. Going back like 2-3 years though so fuzzy memories.tongue.gif Some really small bass ports ala thunderpants might work.

 

I just bing'd it. Looks like MCA made some denon open back cups with some huge holes in them. Maybe martin would do the same for your 900 cups. Looks like he took it to another level than just drilling a small hole in the center.
