Imagine if some of the readers just read your comment and move on to another thread without reading the correction of your comment.

Good job there quoting me, and ofc I can't get away with it 

 

Still thank you for the reminder! I'll do my best to read more carefully, because you have a very good point there.  I hope though that I didn't potentially shy you away from the cables either!

 On a side note, i am an authorized Hifiman dealer, so if anyone in the EU is looking for a pair of HE-500, give me a shout and we can include a free upgrade cable with a pair

 

Now that is a very good deal!

I buy them from the UK distributor who fixes the prices UK dealers can advertise them for and where i can sell them. 

 
I have updated the above post with some pictures i had on file, unfortunately, i don't have any of the newer cables yet.

btw can you run a He 400 or 500 fully balanced with ONLY a balanced cable? Would you need to re wires the input jacks on the He 400 and 500 or are they already copatbile with a balanced outpiut

Assuming the rest of your system is balanced then yeah.

Indeed it is, Audio GD 10SE2

Any HiFiMan can run in balanced mode by default as long as the cable being used has a balanced termination.  The stock cables that terminate to TRS have a positive and negative wire coming from each cup (L+,L-,R+,R-), and the negatives are combined at the TRS termination.  If you remove the TRS plug and trace the wires, with a bit of soldering you can re-terminate to a balanced plug like a 4-Pin XLR, or whatever is compatible with the amp you're using.

 

The balanced vs. single-ended debate is another one of those highly divided subjects, but here is some food for thought:

I find it makes a differance just need to confirm that it will work as it should 

 
and honestly my Audio GD amp sounds better Balanced out [volume matched] than it does SE so moving on
