Oh yeah, there needs to be more lupe listeners. LoL

I was listening to In the End and I can't believe how good it sounds.
And this is with ath pleathers? Thanks for your help, really useful.

How do these compare with the Aiaiai TMA-1s? The price isn't far off and I've heard good things about them but I like that these fold and you folks seem to rave about them.

+ 1, those Aiaiai seems like interesting headphones. It was after seeing pics of these damn things that got me interested in headphones. LoL

Hi guys, I am new to head fi and I was recently eyeing the jvc ha s500.. However they're not available for retail in my country and I didn't have a chance to demo them. I went down to the local Jaben today and tried out ath m50s. I LOVED its signature and clarity/ neutral response. So that made me hesitate to pull the trigger on these guys. I know a lot of you think that this outshines the m50s, but can any of you enlighten me as to what's their specific differences(between stock m50s and s500s with the popular ath pleathers)? If this can outshines it in detail, clarity and soundstage, I will gladly pull the trigger wo hesitation.

How long can people wear modded S500s for without any discomfort? I'm also wondering whether they really are for me if acoustics and rock is what I'd listen to most of the time.

hard to tell, its personal preference.

You wont go wrong with the M50 , so if you can pick them up localy at a fair price, buy them.

 

I sold my M50 no because it sounded worst o better, i sold it cause there was a coworker that read alot about those M50 (one of the most, if not the most recomended phone), and he paid me $150, so why not? i like the S500 and its 50% cheaper. so it was a no brainer for me.   i dont miss the M50, heck. i dont even care about them, the phone that i miss and regret selling is the XB500, not because of the SQ, but just because of the fun of something pounding your head with crazy bass biggrin.gif

You don't sound like a person who likes bass and fun sounding headphones so you should not buy the S500. 

No bass headphones like the M50 or Sennheisers or Shure is more your style

 

I sold my M50 a while ago because the bass was lacking and it struggled with hiphop, dubstep, and other bassy music.

Don't get me wrong. I love my bass tight and punchy:). But I guess it's just the detail the m50 has that has got me hooked.. I'm just in this dilemma because these cans are soo cheap and with a pad mod, can open up the highs and mids so much so that people claim it demolishes the m50.

Hmm.. Should I just pull the trigger on this? Maybe I'll give it to my brother as an Xmas present if I'm not satisfied. Lol:D
