HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening. . - Page 1013

Well, just received my HE500, paid 450$, open box new.

 

They sound really well, but tbh I'm still waiting for my Geek Pulse Sfi to arrive to have something super powerful for these.

Thanks

 

(I searched the thread and found a million posts but 1000 pages is just unmanageable, sorry!)

 

I can recommend the standard Focus Pads. Initially I didn't like them, but they have since broken in a bit and lost a bit of their itchiness. I like them better than the velours now.

i do have them for over a month now ... I surely prefer the velour ones, smoother presentation and more comfy feeling ... the pleather ones make me sweat all the time, even in winter ...

+1 Focus pad A. I've had them for over a month and they're the best sounding out of the HM5, velours, pleathers

The best one might be the Prime deal that "may" use the travel case rather than the box.  Something practical rather than... what?  I use my two HFM boxes as a base for my headphone stand ;)
