Good write-up Rob. This last year has brought about some great monitors. I thing the challenge to define the sound they produce is all the more fun because they do produce so much that is truly enjoyable to listen to with the High End getting just that much better with more entries.

Didn't surprise me on the HE500, but did surprise me the T1's sounded as good as they did (relatively speaking).

Nope!! I tried?but the pads are so big that the pillow pushes them up..not funny..i tried this:

fold a pillow double and ony let it support the middle of ur head..and so the cups stay free..but u have to put the headband almost on ur forehead then as else it slipsbackwards because of the weight..best way to listen to music with the he500 is a comfy chair of which u can make it a laying chair...i bought one with support for ur feet..perfect!! wink.gif

how does the weight of the hifiman he-500 compare to the he-400?  noticable difference in comfort?

Site says 45 for stock :C.

It's about a 2 oz. difference, right?  Most have said that is noticeable if you go from one to the other, but the weight of the -500s isn't a deal breaker for most.  I think most folks wish they were as light as Senn 650s, those are some comfortable cans...

Hi guys.

 

I have a loaner set of HE-500s coming in so I can evaluate whether or not it's worth (for me) eating only ramen for the next month or two.

 

My current amp powers my HD600 to more than satisfactory levels at 50%. Would it be enough for the HE-500?
