All I had to do was remove the files from quarantine and just run the install, easy peasy.

Part II is coming up.

No I mean the 500's. I really like the smooth treble compared to my HE-400's.

Ah that makes more sense :)

 

And yeah, definitely has very smooth treble in stock form, and even more-so when modded with open grills and Jerg/Modulor-pads. The pads take it 2 steps further and makes it all so coherent it's unbelievable.

Received my HE-500 today, initial impressions are positive. Coming from dynamic driver type headphones i notice a more fluid, grain free, rich and smooth presentation. None of the frequencies seem to be emphasized which lends to a linear, cohesive and natural type of sound. Very pleased so far smily_headphones1.gif

Grain free is what I noticed first as well, as well as BIG sound, whatever that means. It can only get better from here my friend, congratulations. WELCOME TO THE CLUB!!!

STAHP going on and on about your special jergulor pads!!

 

I kid ;)  They do really improve on the sound, even if you make them yourself.  I'd love to see Ryan's handiwork.

My HE-500's arrived today along with a Mytek 192 DSD DAC and some Oyaide firewire and USB cables.  The Mytek is one of a handful of DACs that can accept a firewire connection.  Source is a 2010 Mac Mini with Audirvana Plus.

 

Even with both the HE-500's and Mytek, cold out of the box, the sound is quite luscious and delicious.  Been playing a bunch of songs and albums ranging from 16/44.1, 24/96 and 24/192, all in AIFF format.

 

Oddly enough, my HE-500's came with the silver cables instead of the newer black Canare.  All's good though since I was going to buy the silver cables anyways, now I'll just have to buy the black Canare cables.  :D

So how much are they getting for these Jerg pads you guys keep talking about? I looked through the DIY for the mod but havent seen any prices. Not interested in PM them about pricing as the pricing should be posted out there I would think. Ill PM him if I want to actually buy a set.

LOL.  Other way 'round, I reckon :D

 

When AKG finally gets some "real" K712 pads into their US warehouse.  Annoyingly, they use the same part number for the K702 65th Anniversary pads and the K712 pads, but when each is purchased new, they come with different pads.  I took a chance and ordered a pair, and of course got the K702 Annie pads.  While the memory foam is extremely comfortable, they absolute killed my Q701s.  If they muffle that one, I hate to think what they'd do to the HE-500s.  Silly AKG.  At least they admitted they don't have the K712 pads atm.

annnnnnnnnnnnd cue my man Nimzerz! ;)
