I could bring the HE-500 with my portable rig to A'dam if you want!

Darn! Enjoy France. I don't think you need to bring the HE-500 as I will probably get one myself (thank you, you) and also, drinking in a pub in Amsterdam while listening to headphones might be hazardous to my health. The cord wrapped around my neck while I try to lift beer glass to mouth. Not a pretty sight. ;)

i wonder how it compares to the T1/HD 800 though. does it have a unique sound signature? or is it similar to them? ive heard all sorts of weird things about the he-500, further adding to the mystery.
HD800 has better soundstage, more emphasized details and sounds crisp to me. HE-500 is the only headphone that doesn't have emphasized treble and at the same time doesn't sound mellow. Lots of details, perfect bass, for me much more enjoyable than HD800 bass and liquid mids. For me its the perfect headphone. And all that out of an SS amp. I have not desire for a tube amp at this point. The two headphones complement each other nicely though.

I am eyeing the HE-500 too. Can't wait to hear it on the SPL Auditor and others.

Yep, I'd go with that too at the moment. I have no want at all to try anything else in the near future. Nothing stands out or is lacking on the HE-500. Thats a true sign of a great headphone! Really quite efficient too.

For me the current setup I truly enjoy is iPod digital out>Audio GD REF 5>Auditor>HE-500.
It has speed, musicality, detail and entertainment. But that is just my taste. For me its the perfect headphone and I will be taking it (headphone) with me on vacation next week.
