Cross-posting here at someone's suggestion in the headphones forum.
So I'm looking to upgrade from my DT880s. I'd like to move away from the somewhat bright and analytical sound of the DT880s and get something with some more bottom end and maybe a little lushness. The HE-500 seems to fit the bill perfectly and its price is really good when compared to the other high-end headphones. I considered the T1 and HD800, but both those seem to err on the brighter side. I also need something that plays nice with a wide variety of music, and the HiFiman seem to be a better choice than either of those.
I'm thinking about pulling the trigger rather soon. Any thoughts?
