HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening. . - Page 937

Ahh! The right cup stopped working on my HE-500! I'm really hoping/thinking it's just a cable issue. 

 

Are there any affordable options besides buying another for $60? (I'd hate to buy another exact stock one to have it die on me again)

Just swap the left/right cable ends. That should tell you right away if it's the cable or the driver.

Also if the cable is even slightly loose it can lose contact so just tightening it might fix it.

Literally just got the shipping notification.  Its going via DHL International Express, so should be pretty quick to the UK.

I also received my shipping notification just a while ago! I'll probably wait a bit longer, our postal service here is dreadful!

Ordered 2 days ago, just got an email that the pads have been shipped...

Dang. I ordered mine last Saturday (28th) and haven't heard anything. Maybe they'll just show up and surprise me.

It will be interesting to hear impressions about the new pads:popcorn:

Quick question for he500 owners. Are these headphones suppose to be symmetrical? I thought mine felt a little uneven on my head and when I actually looked at them I realized the headband is quite crooked relative to the cups. Does this look normal?

Hold the headband and turn both cups with the other hand in one direction until the connectors are even.
