Update for my simple and cheap headphones. Just sold my He400 and bought the Philips Fidelio X1 for 296 usd. Fiio E17 somewhere below the laptop cooler...


Sound wise, bit too much bass and not enough treble. Hope it improves with change cables and burn in, or maybe I'm just used to HE400 sound signature... Bit regret I didn't take the Audio Technica AD1000X for 350usd, but that must wait for another year or two...

Thanks to advice from Dubstep Girl, I am now getting serious about building my desktop rig.  Hope to add a mosfet amp soon...

Ethan, I'm liking it a lot. This is the sound i wanted when i bought my SR 80i's and thought they sounded good which they still do but they aren't even close to the HE-500's especially since i have an amp and dac now to drive them.

And it sounds pretty amazing too!

What mosfet amps are you looking at? I'm currently in the process of building a First Watt F5 clone for my HE-6 and im going to tinker with an impedance box for the HD-800s....:popcorn:

Hahaha... Sorry. I know very nothing beyond the fact that they are called mosfet and that they employ Class A amps. My uncle will be building it for me.

Current bedside table experiment setup.. Pretty messy. Big cleanup tomorrow. 

(EQ has been reset. Was playing around with it)

Sure is a good looking setup! Very elegant and sleek.

What are your general impressions? Ive demoed it a couple times and thought it was very "neutral solid state" sounding. Rather unremarkable actually (which is a good thing for an amp IMO).

The Fischer FA003 (Also known as BRAINWAVZ HM5, Jaycar pro monitor, few others)

But I've also added the handmade russian zebrano woodcups.

Any comparisons between the FA-002W and others?

The wood gave a slight lift to the mid-bass, but I definitely still consider this can to be flat-as-anything sort of material. From the way it looks, you'd almost wish it were a more "fun" sounding can, but I guess at time I can be a little bit of a basshead. 

I personally love the mids, mid-highs and highs. It wipes the absolute floor with the M50 (without wood, these are in the same price range, haha!)

I consider them to be great value for money. Some of the best cans I own, by far. Lush and engaging. And I can't stop looking!
