To start with, I didn't get along with them particularly well, for comfort reasons. I was coming from some Alessandro MS-1s which were always flawlessly comfy. I spent a lot of time fiddling with positioning and tightness. Oddly, my right ear seems to stick out a little more than the left, just enough for it to brush against the infamous metal bar! Thankfully, I did get comfortable in the end, by lowering them slightly on my head.

 

Also, my first impressions were that they sounded great but not SO much better than the MS-1s... a few weeks of listening and I went back to check the difference. Yikes. I'm sure you understand how THAT felt...

 

So after a year I have no regrets at all. They work with any music I throw at them. I can use these things plugged into my smart phone and they still sound great.

 

The only thing that sometimes irritates me is that there seems to be a slightly false sound to some vocals, a sort of buzzing to some notes, as if the singer's breathiness is emphasised. "Writing's on the Wall" by Plan B really grates on me for this reason.

 

I'm not a constant upgrade fiend. I had my MS-1s for a good 8 years and only upgraded when they physically broke. Right now I's using the headphone output of a Roksan Kandy K2 amp, so I think there would be some benefit in upgrading to a headphone amp. The question is, which one? Any suggestions? I've heard good things about the Schiit range, and price wise they work for me. Any other ideas appreciated :) I've got a lot of this thread to go back and read too!


ur amp is a speaker amp right? maybe u could try to connect ur he500 to the speaker outputs? am sure lots of emotiva guys here can help u with that...that could help elevate ur music experience..and maybe eleminate that voice thingie..my rig doesnt have that problem...never had... u want advice...check my rig... its for sure an affordable good choice...but a lyr is good also..so from head those two are my first picks in that price range...both need tuberolling though..but trust me..thats fun to do!! but as i said..try ur speaker outputs...the speakerguys here can help u for sure how to do that...its for sure ur most economical way..and maybe a very good one..as ur amp looks a good one..but still...that voice thingie is weird. good luck with ur choices

HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) please post your impressions. Proving to b...

Agree on the Lyr, synergize well with the HE500.

do as i did...buy a good quality multi connections usb thingie (u know...with many usb connections in a row...see my pic...i dont know how its called in english...sorry)..with seperate powersupply...then get uself a couple of (USB3) HDD docking stations (as i have in my pic)..connect them..done!! its easy and economincal...when not used u just swtich that one off with its on-off switch..it works flawlessly...but ist ofcourse always better to put ur disks inside ur pc...my pc can handle 16 disks inside if i am not mistaken...ru sure ur pc only has space for 2 HDD's? most ahve space for at least 4...sometimes the pc case has a 'disk cage' on another spot in ur case...how many sata connections has ur motherboard?

DSG,  the cheap way would be an external drive if you have no space to put another internal drive in your system.  If you do have a network at home and $ to spare then I would recommend a NAS.

I am running a synology NAS at home that could be accessed from pretty much all my computers and compatible devices.  Plus, the NAS would be running RAID config to ensure redundancy.

This is what I have at home :

i agree...but a nas needs to work in a local network (with ip adress?)..and not all people know how to configurate that or how they configurate disks in raid config....and then u have the question of security...i dont like having my disks being accessed from outside my direct usb/sata enviroment... a friend of mine had his disks completely erased because of a hacker who hacked into his network and so into his disks...so yeah..am a bit paranoia on this issue beerchug.gif

i have space for like 6 or something. i have a 2TB external thats strictly for backup of pictures, programs, important documents, and all sorts of other stuff. it also has movies for now, but they will eventually be moved to an internal.

 

and internally, i have a 260GB SDD, the 2TB music disk thats full, and 2 more single TB hard drives. pretty much full. all my other satas are used up (i guess i could maybe get rid of the dvd burner and just keep the super multi blue and add an extra one or something....

Simple and cheap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817392051

 

Use non-raid and connect the drives (up to 4 3TB drives possible) to a single USB 2.0/3.0 connection on PC/laptop if you cannot add another SATA hard drive internally. You will see each drive as a separate HDD. You can also use an eSATA connection so long as your pc/laptop has port multiplier capabilities available on that port.

 

But to sound less confusing - buy the enclosure (which includes a slightly noisy fan btw) and just plug it in. Done.

Here i made a cheap setup for you that will accomadate 16 hard drives, the trick is branching out those 3ft cables from your PC to the 16x hard drive tower. you can buy longer if needed. No extra PC required and youre not overpaying for a synology etc. Click this link
