HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening. . - Page 160

Toxic is definitely in the running for sure. The only drawback to them for me is the importing thing, but they sure look nice and people rave about them. 

 

I have kind of settled on either Toxic or MoonAudio Silver Dragon. I have the Black Dragon on my HD650 and I really like it.

No import fees. I read that he lists their value something like under £25 to avoid it.

    Heard nothing but good things about the first one, only deal is if you fully snap it on it can crease the he-500 headband if you leave it on for a long time, to avoid this most people snap it on halfway. Looks goofy but supposed to be a big improvement. Second one is also supposed to be comfy but its more of a permanent mod since most people use adhesive/velcro to attach it which can damage the leather on the headband.

 

some pics of the headband at the bottom of this page http://www.head-fi.org/t/629352/hifiman-he-500-on-a-speaker-amp-emotiva-mini-x-a-100-project/60
