Sounds familiar when I go HE-500 -> Iphone
But how come a focused centerstage be a good thing then?
Yes, absolutely for me. I would even choose my HE500s over my HD800s.
I live in Germany and a new pair is about 700 Euro (910$). I payed 500 Euro (650 $) for my used pair. They were in excellent condition and I also got one year of warranty.
But I cant tell you how much you would have to pay in the US to get a used pair.
Yeah around 500 sounds good :) Give or take... Oh how I wished back then for the Hifiman being on sale more often :D
I have got a question, because I am not sure about whether my listening volume is okay, and how loud I can have my headphones. With the HE-500/400 lying right next to you, how loud is the music then?
