The more i listen to the velours, the more i think about finding a place to throw away the pleathers pads.
As listening continues the entire night, i realize HE-500 isn't for me. (I've heard it recently from a studio friend)
I guess my quest now is to find something nearly identical to the HE-400.
Something with a little more treble (but no fatigue) and comfort would be the epitome of what i think a headphone should sound like.
More detail and separation would be even better, but for where the HE-400 stands, imo, it's already at the top of the charts in those areas.
At first i thought the bass could be a little louder, but the more i listen, i become more satisfied of it being where it is. I guess my preference for bass has changed after listening to these.
