Quoting again... after googlin', I found the reviews on mp4nation.  HE-6 and HE-500 owners proclaim the pads greatness.  All hail the new age of Millinery!!!

Could be worse, you could be making ear muffs. :wink_face: In a way you are.

I think you're starting some guys into grillin'.

Well i find it amusing how u guys are battling it out which pad is best..i for sure am not stepping into the fight as i found my bliss padswise..completely handmade....but it has cost me...as i had to buy a complete headphone with it to get them tongue.gif

About grilling..or open grills..thats so last year!.. very_evil_smiley.gif

.we the 'originals' (or the old dudes..hehehehe) already had that mod last year on our he500's biggrin.gif
And if i am not mistaken..back in the days of old victorian england people used perfume to camouflage how bad they smelled...and it was generally accepted that u threw out ur poop out of ur window onto the streets back then..well..then..i prefer to be here with the nitwits of audio then being on the court of what u mentioned..hehehehehe

He thinks there's an element of cheap perfume and nightsoil to it. Hifi is clever, he bailed out and is feinting sleep making believe that he's counting sheep.

Watcha say, we call him Hifi  for short?

I think I may have the absolute best amplifier I've heard to date with the HE-500's, and that's the Fosgate Signature Tube Headphone Amplifier.

You should hear it with the HD800.....by far the best combo I have heard to date.

Not that I doubt, but I thought the Fosgate didn't deliver very much power? My gut tells me we want a little more than that with the HE-500s.

Unless my amp is wired weird, the Fosgate had a crap ton of power for both of my orthos. I'm not even halfway on the dial (around 11-12 o'clock) and it's very, very loud.

No, that's my bad, it seems it's 1w @ 30 ohms. In skylabs review he mentioned figures of 165-250mw, but that was into 600ohms.

That amp should give the HE500 nice punchy bass from I've heard.
