I too have new favorite headphone, it is called Jaycar Pro Monitor.
My S500 will not see any use in the near future, if ever. I was even thinking of selling it yesterday.

I've got the ckn70's on the way. Does anybody has experience from driving these from the Colorfly C3?
I'm tired of my phone being out of battery on/after long flights and looking for a dedicated DAP with good battery life but I don't care for bringing an amp as well.
Any input would be welcome.
Those are great headphones.... they used to be 57 shipped from jaycar. It was a great deal. My favorite closed full size can. They are basically rebranded FA-003's....or HM5.....or Lindy Premiums.... or NVT (maybe NXT) headphones......all bought from Yoga. You get a headphone case, spare pads and a great set of full-sized cans.
Here's what I did with mine.
Dynamat on front of cups...(recommend to place electric tape over dynamat to seal black goo in place as it will eventually start to melt from the heat and will go all over the place)
Peeled off the felt inside and place silverstone acoustic foam as bottom layer... put stock felt on top with some parts cut out
Dyanmat on back of driver and some more acoustic foam around the edge
dynamat around the driver
didnt take a picture but put stock hd580 foam infront of the cup to tame some of the highs.
Also, didn't cover the port holes as one fo the threads suggested.... sucked the bass right out... as the cans are a little light on bass as is.
Sounds great! think of it a closed version of hd600
It does sound fantastic! Really neutral, perfect to use with warm IEMs.
