The sony's have much clearer, cleaner detail and now i notice the sony's are very bass heavy but have a nicer bass quantity and quality over the s500's. I have about 40 hours on the s500's so they are not near the 200 hour burn in period recommended. Do the ath pleather pads change the sound dramatically compared to the stock s500's? 


Sorry for my noob-ness, but what do you mean with a/bing? I see that term more often on the forums, but have no idea what's meant by it.. Could be because English isn't my native language.

A/Bing = The testing of two headphones finding their differences.

Listen to headphone A, then listen to Headphone B. Listen for differences between them.

Ah, OK, thanks for clearing that up.. I was thinking it could be either that, or using a headphone and switching source equipment. ;)

Well it can be anything really, amps, players, IEM, headphone, tips, pads, cables, etc etc... Usually you're switching between two of the same thing though when A/Bing.

But it's mostly associated with headphones or IEM's in regular cases. smile.gif

Maybe if you drop it to $55 or $60 shipped, cuz I can get a sexy new gunmetal color one from Jpn for $69. Already have a black set and most people like the gunmetal color a lot more so..........good luck buddy. Hit me up a PM if you gonna sell for $55, cuz I will buy it ASAP!!!

I got mine for $47.10 shipped, so as much as I would like a backup pair, I don't want to spend more than the original pair cost.

Some Jpn seller on amazon listed them for like $25, plus $22 shipping. Price mistake i guess but they shipped it at that price for everyone that ordered. That was when the flood gates opened for these S500s but this is ancient news. biggrin.gif

I ordered mine at that price ($23.55 plus $23.55 shipping) and within 24 hours, the price from that same seller jumped up to $75 plus $23.55 shipping. So I don't know if it was a mix-up at first, or of the seller saw the sudden influx of orders starting to come in (from those reading this thread) and decided to cash in.

That deal was a once in a life time slickdeal from the CNT gods. tongue_smile.gif It is old old news, and was probably a price mistake from the seller. The prices now are like ~$70 shipped from every seller from Jpn.
