Portability would be a plus though. I'm in the train every once in a whole. 

 

Well, with that strategy I feel perfectly justified in saying, Good LUCK!

Hope you get one you like :smile:

To be honest, I don't like closed cans after I listened to closed cans. So I will never be as happy as with the HE-500 which is why I'm choosing this route to pick a new headphone. :tongue_smile:

And the winners are the Denon D5000. Bought from a member here on Head-Fi. Hope they will perform well with the rest of my rig!

I tried the k550 yesterday couldn't get anything like a proper seal. They had great kick ass precise bass when pressed ever so slightly closer to my ears. Else they sounded tinny and lacking in bass

Found it, but that mod is undoable for me. I'm even selling my custom made wooden cups made by Munkynutz for the HE-500 because I'm afraid of the doing the mod (if anybody wants them, selling them at cost). 

 

I got two left hands and I'm afraid I'll break my stuff :deadhorse:

Wood cups on the 500s? I couldn't begin to imagine what impact that would have on the sound. Anybody done this?

I think he meant wooden housing not wooden cups. CMIIW
