Analogsurviver.....you hear those velour pads exactly like I did, less bass(about right), and bigger soundstage, sparkle, more delightful mids!
"Dead Can Dance", "Anastasia" album, much improved with the velour pads....thanks for the recommendation of "Dead Can Dance", have two of their albums now...live performance is over the top!
Thanks for the post!
Thank YOU cute for discovering these ear pads - without them, EQ is needed for HA-S500 nomatterwhat, rendering them less useful.
I still do not quite get it something that can legitimately challenge Lambda or K1K costs so little - considering I was lucky enough to get them at the $ 23.50 Amazon deal, these pads at $ 10-ish seem pricewise as relatively expensive extravaganza ! But ear pads are quality product, came in a box, signed for, tracking available, less than two weeks from China to Slovenia, in their own wrapper, with a very nice postcard as a gift and souvenir from the seller that was always prompt in communication - and very friendly. Can't beat such service, I guess. The fact they sound good with the HA-S500 is icing on the cake.
Hope he starts making special case for HA-S500 - there are tons of cases smaller and larger than what would fit for HA-S500 in his listings on ebay.
And if ear pads are representative for the quality, cases should not dissapoint one bit.
As always, enjoy your music !
