 Finally... I just make my he500 sings.

 It certainly stands up to my Hd600 & my Hd800 now.

 My first impression are  excellent soundstage &  pin point imaging..

 i can't believe i am dancing when listening to this cans 

 it just let me forget of details but just enjoy music to the fullest with my emotion.

 :atsmile: The lyr sure have enough juice to kick butt on this can

Listen to M83 - Oblivion (feat. Susanne Sundfør) and jizz all over your amplifier, headphones, keyboard ect.

FLAC ofcourse. And turn that **** the **** up.

Unless the HD650 is balanced (the only way I can tolerate it) it can't stand near the HE-500, IMO. Even with the 650 balanced the HE-500 is better.

HE-500 is ******* amazing, I love the deep bass, I equalize it a little bit, but not much, I am kind of a bass-head, and the HE-500 isn't known for being "friendly" for bass heads but I think it's amazing, It's just perfect for me currently. Although I just ordered the Fostex TH-600 so it will be fun to try that out when it comes. I've always wished to get my hands on a D7000, and I know for a fact that TH-600 is basically the D7000 just better (atleast after a guy I know, probably placebo, rofl). But yeah, I am set, I am ******* set when I have the TH-600. I will NEVER sell my HE-500, these ****ers I will keep. The only thing I probably will sell or upgrade is the WA6-SE, eventually I will probably go for something a bit more high-end. I want to try out something that doesn't have tubes, but seriously, tubes are fun, WA6-SE itself is amazing because of the tube rolling you can do with it. This month I jumped straight into the deep waters, lucky for me I had a couple of crazy ****ers who spend way too much money on stereo in general to help me out :P And I do not regret a second, the HE-500 is amazing and so far I am very happy, can't wait to test out the TH-600 though. I got to say, the WA6-SE is kickass, it runs the HE-500 perfectly.

No matter who you are, you should give the HE-500 a chance.

I can tell how much you love the HE500 by counting the F's in your post.  :beerchug: 

The WA6SE is already one of the best tube amps that could drive the HE500 well.  IMO, it could be better with HE500 than my WA22 if I don't run the WA22 balanced.  Solid state will give a few more options but very expensive for really not much improvements.  I do love the HE500 on a liquid gold amp but at $6400 it makes no sense sonically or financially for me unless i win the lotto.

Haha, oh yes man, I do love them.

 

I see you got the Q 701, I tried them, sound-wise they were great but unfortunately that headband didn't work for me, It felt like someone was lobotomizing me after using them for a couple of hours. A shame really, I could have probably tried to replace the headband but I didn't bother, I got them cheap, brand new, sold them for the same price I paid for them. But yeah, HE-500 forever :D Hehe.

 

Oh, and here you go. A little picture for you :D

500+600 is an awesome combo, congrats.

Nice pic!

about Q701, I head to cut off those bumps on the head band.  I recently did the bass port mod on it.  It sounds much better to my ears now.  I've been comparing it to HD800 for 2 weeks and has found the modded Q701 quite comparable in SQ, though not the same level.

Another amazing track with these headphones is:

 

Pendulum - Set Me On Fire

 

FLAC ofcourse!

 

You will hear the insanely deep bass extension with this track!

 

It'll feel like the HE-500s are making love to you!
