I can't enjoy the music anymore after i wear it for 30 minutes.I think hifiman realized  it and the new model HE560 comes much more comfortable. At lease it looks much better ( I haven't try it yet) .

I was blessed with a strong neck and can listen to the 500's for hours but I can understand where you're coming from. They sound great but if they're not comfortable that can be frustrating.

Well...i am not a body builder also..but never experienced the he500 as to heavy..but i have to say i am customed to feel gforces in the car in the past...thats a killer for ur neck biggrin.gif i used the he500 for hours without any problems..and the code-x i have is even heavier because of the mods made to them tongue.gif

But maybe a solution for all those having problems with the weight of the he500/he6/he5/he5le....get urself a comfy recliner seat (can be cheap if u get one with fake leather) and just put it into sleep (horizental) mode..so ur head (and he500)rests on the comfy cushion... wink.gif

Or train ur neck with some wieghts on a rope,around ur neck..like the bodybuilders do (and some car racers i understand)

It is probably much simpler for someone to admit his mistake & get lighter phones

And get worse soundquality???? I would always prefer soundquality over a bit of discomfort, which can solved easily biggrin.gif

One only has to cross out the Audezes and some Hifimans, choosing from hundreds of others

I used to have a Mustang GT with a 5.0 L V8 w/ 650cfm Holley 4BBL, Dual exhaust, stainless tubular exhaust headers with an H tube. I was a bad boy and would partake in 4 wheel drifts. My neck was never an issue despite the neck snapping torque. So then , what's a stink'in HE-500 gonna do about it? :evil:

Sorry for the thread derail, but I have to ask,

 

The old fox body?

 

I used to love American muscle( had a few Mustangs) then I bought an Acura GSR then came an NSX , no turning back after that.

 

 

 

My latest project, just added a supercharger to this

 

It is scary quick. But it gets about 8 miles to the gallon lol.

I know what u mean...
I had a 450hp evo7 and a few tuned 4x4 rs cosworths (1 rs escorth and two rs 4x4 sieras) and some other 'not so regular' cars in the past which i took to the track regularely on club meetings/days. ..so my neck felt some weight pulling at it biggrin.gif
But even my baby girl of 11 who wanted to model for some pics of my new code-x didnt have problems having the heavy (more heavy then the he500) code-x on her head for at least 45min tongue.gif
...so i dont understand the problem with the weight of the he500 also biggrin.gif

To fearless1: a V12 merc engine with compressor? Cool!

It was a 1985, the last year of the cab, before they screwed up in 1986. I upped the juice when the camshaft broke and replaced it with something a bit more muscular. Of course the clutch plates, etc had to go as well. I sure did love that car. Suddenly lifting one's foot off the gas in 3rd was like hitting the brakes and could result in skidmarks. Isn't it amazing to be able to drive in 5th at 500 RPM and not stall?

There ain't nuthin like the G Force of accelaration pulling the skin off your face and ripping your HE-500's off your head. My tires never met their wear rating for mileage. not even close.

Yeah, 86-88 were the new emission laws and Ford's  horrible intro to fuel injection.

The screwed up the compression ratio in 86. Kinda like stuffing bathtube caulk inside your HE-500's.

Anyone have any suggestions for my next headphone? I'm thinking HE-500. I want something like the AKG k712/k702 annie, but just with more bass. The AKG's pretty much excel in mids, highs, and all the things you'd want for gaming (soundstage width and depth/airiness). Neutral headphones are my type. Would like them to be great for gaming as well.

HE-500s might be a nice choice coming from the AKGs. You might miss some of the staging of the AKGs, but the general signature is similar with a little less treble (but in a good way I think) and with more bass. Remove the stock grilles ASAP and I think you'll find the HE-500s to be balanced in much the same way as the AKG K7xxs
