HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening. . - Page 232

Cheers Rezolver and Dubstep Girl for the music posts, enjoyed listening to them, Aes Dana and Veela are surely now on my short list =)

 

I like this mix from Armin van Buuren's Drowning. The original album is called Mirage and it is brilliant.

 

I like you guys suggesting music that sounds great on the HE-500 since music is what is behind all our gear.

 

Let me chime in with a few other great tracks:

 

You gotta love this bass, it really kicks. Nice atmospheric background as well.

 

 

This is of a different style now: country influenced singer / songwriter. In brief, she sings amazingly. This song is to make you melt down.

 

 

Enjoy L3000.gif

I don't know how this will sound on youtube compared to Spotify, but my HE-500 make this song amazing:

I've really been getting into Lindsey Sterling lately. Classical with a Dubstep twist. You simply must hear these songs on your HE500s. The YouTube versions don't really do her justice, she is a genius. These are worth a buck each. Hope you enjoy. smile.gif

Not since the admins downgraded this thread from summit-fi.

Hello HE-500 fans, I am interested in these phones but don't really want to buy without hearing them, do any of you live in the phoenix or tucson area who would be willing to meet up for a quick listen?

The topic is HE500s. These songs sound great on them. tongue.gif

 

But seriously, I see nothing wrong with people of a like mind sharing ideas and getting to know each other on another level. There's no newbies here asking questions at the moment... a little socialization never hurt anyone.

Definitely will. I just checked the tracking information and it's in Oakland which is about an hour from here! I wish I could just go over and get it! As it is, I won't see it until Tuesday... I'm using them with the DACMini right now and it's not a bad little rig. Just needs a little more power. it starts getting a little strident if you push it too hard.

Thank you all for sharing those wonderful youtube links..especially dubstep girl. First track you shared was amazing. 

 

Continuously finding more love for my HE-500s

@Stalker, that buttery smoothness and yet full of extension is something special.

@D_G, Ultimae records indeed. Solar Fields is another great composer. There really is something for everyone on that label.
Your music posts are making my ears water (ha). I should have an opportunity this evening to go through them. Thank you for paying it forward. Cheers!

@jiggawhat, CBL is _very_ similar to Aes Dana indeed. CBL continues to put out great albums, while Aes Dana not so much :(

@bareyb, You're welcome. If you crave more, check out the Ultimae Records site. To name a few, composers such as Carbon Based Lifeforms (CBL for short), H.U.V.A Network (which is a collabo between Aes Dana and CBL), Vibrasphere and Hanging Masses are also great.
For something a bit more "edgy", look into Gridlock. Enjoy.

@Acapella11, you got it. Without the music our gear would be nothing more than cold and silent scrap metal.

@EVERYONE, Thank you for taking the time to post these wonderful music links.  My HE-500's are going to receive some lovin' tonight.  WUNDERBAR!

Would 8W/channel be too much for the HE-500?

I wouldn't think so if you didn't turn it up too loud. People are using Speaker Amps to drive these things. What amp did you find that has 8 wpc?
