HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening. . - Page 616

You all should really hear James Newton's Howard composition of "The Village." It's simply stunning on the HE-500. In lossless obviously.

+1 fully agree. The MG12s have a very similar sound signature. The wall of sound effect with maggies is quite impressive. Its a marked difference to go back to a speaker with a single point source for the treble.

I and everyone else who had them moved on from Maggies. There are better speakers out there which can serve both music and home theater use.

 

BUT, it is a unique sound signature all its own, and its nice to have a reminder of it in the HE-500.

Was able to get a hold of a pair of HE500s for a few days.. only have the Asus essence stx right now though.

 

Have a woo audio wa7 coming in any day now.

The Bourne Legacy score also sounds excellent on the HE-500.

Farewell friend!  Don't be a stranger to the thread though, it's not the same without you!  Also, once you get your hands on the Code-X and your new amp... impressions please! :cool:

Waiting for the dust to settle.. but I think I prefer the HE500s over my Grados sr325is already after 1 day of using them. Unexpected tbh.

 

I've read about the Grados withdraw from some users, and I'm only amping the HE500s with the essence stx soundcard. So definitely wasn't expecting to enjoy them this much so quickly.

Thanks my friend..yeah...it was fun....lately i was not to happy to where the thread was going...but its an open thread..so its free to say anything, so i dont bother to much..and now i am off to a whole new ballgame..maybe even my endgame phone..or the one who will force me to make the big jump into sr007/009 universe, who knows biggrin.gif
As soon i have my rig complete again i will make a review thread about that...i will post a shortcut here to that thread for anyone interested.

Ps..anyone who still need advice..u still can contact me by pm just as some of u did already.. I will, as always, advice/help in the same honest way as i did until now... The people who contacted me by pm know what i mean tongue.gif

Thanks again dudes for the informative rollercoaster on this thread... To be honest..my new rig is so unknown on headfi that i am wondering if i will have any reason to even get back to headfi at all rolleyes.gif
Oh well we have to see in january then.. tongue.gif

Guys i still have two pairs of very special thingies to sell... redface.gif

@angelbelow: if u like the he500 so much already then wait until u get the right amp for ur he500 wink.gif

Great! I think you will be very happy.

 

I just received my WA6-SE today and so far I am very very satisfied and I have heard good words about the WA7 with them. :)

To my ears, HE-500 is a much more tonally balanced and correct headphone. LCD2 is too dark for my taste.

Better not say that over on head-fi or they'll wring you out to dry.
