Yes & No.
Here is a rating of durability (1 being least durable, 3 being most durable):
1.) Rattle Can Paint
2.) Automotive Base Coat & Clear Coat sprayed with an automotive paint gun.
If you are talking about the metal grills on the HE-500 I would suggest going with option #3, powdercoated. Very very durable but a bit pricey. Google local powdercoating shops and ask for a quote.
If you want option #2 or #3, I would recommend http://www.referencesounds.com I purchased a painted pair of Paradox's with powdercoated sliders from them. A+ work and it's super durable!
