The Fischer Audio FA-011 A very nice wooden cupped open headphone on the relative cheap. One of the better headphones for the cash actually. And one of the few open back headphones that actually has some bass presence. They take a month when you order them to get to you but is one of those headphones that gets a solid value rating as they only cost around $110 or so. There are some variations of the wooden cups and cords but all use the same driver.  I wanted these red wood cups but got a black wooden ones instead. These were nice when they were introduced but I have to say the HA-S500 are a better deal overall.

Ya I see guys selling theirs on the sale forums once in a while. I believe I recently saw a white wooden one. They always sell though. I am glad I own a pair. I can't say they are my favorites but they are a solid value. They look really nice in a cyber punkish sort of way on the head.. For the same cost of something like a AD700 with sharp highs with no bass. These actually has a nice balanced sound with bass. Which I don't believe there is too many open back headphones that actually has..These are one of those headphones that is owned by the hard core headfier. Not a headphone you can get from your local Amazon.com. or ebay I believe. There are only a few places online you can get these.

Thanks. I'm already excited, and I haven't even heard them yet!

Nice pics too. If you get a 100 PMs regarding a HA-S500 recable service. I didn't mention it here. I get mines for free for mentioning it. That's the deal.

I have the natural wood colored one.  Brian at BTG Audio is in the process of recabling mine with detachable XLR.  This headphone, like the S500 punches way above its price.

Still trying to decide between the S400 or S500.

 

I like forward mids with as natural of a sound as possible.  I want realistic bass and no painful highs.  I want clarity. 

 

 

So of the two, which one would be best for me...  The S400?

Both will give you that me thinks. I am certain you are gonna have a spend a bit more for the ATH leathers but to me the way it sounds now was a bigger surprise than the ATH velours. I will have my HA-S400 soon..All these people on this thread can't be wrong...
