Thanks anyway.

I followed this thread from Page1 to here and i am very interested about the S500.

 

I have Denon D1100, AKG LE 518 now, anyone has some similar comparison among these?

 

JVC HK just announced this in HK, HKD488.

Is that something I should worry about and reduce the volume??

should be fine i think
i have mine set to a dubstep song on loop and they're audible from 5-10 feet away
have them play louder than your highest volume listenable, but not maxed out volume should be safe

Would you ship to Canada if I paid the extra shipping?


On another note, my friend just bought the ATH M50's and wow. Those are pretty amazing as well. They fit way nicer on me and sound just as good imo. I kind of wish I just got the M50's as they seem so much more comfortable and they don't leak sound since they cover the whole ear, which is ideal when i'm studying in the library. Have any of you compared the two?

Ah ok thank you for clearing that up.

I've set it to about 3.7 on my FiiO, as I usually listen around 3.1. biggrin.gif

i had a pair of M50's, didnt last more than 10 days.  Mids more recesed than the S500,  bass was ok but not better IMO. overall, more V shaped.  Comfort, M50 wins.

with all the talking and a huge score from Joker, i was kind of disapointed,  they are good but no that much better or even better than the S500, sold them to som1 that was all over those M50 because of the endless reviews and made a profit.

Ah cool. That must be quite loud lol

I got my FiiO docked to my iPod, playing Sick Music 3 at 3.7 volume... low gain and EQ1. biggrin.gif

These things are so tight and controlled with the bass it's amazing! cool.gif

Sick Music 3 sounds amazing through them, great clarity and speed.

On an unrelated note, are all of you guys using the Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 Players?

Is there any reason why so many of you are using it? I am in need of a new mp3 player and was just going to get an iPod, but it seems like many of you are using the sansa so I might give that a go as it's so much cheaper.

Mine were horrible out of the box and did vibrate in the bass like crazy at the beggining, giving me unvoluntary ear massage. Normal - just burn them in; eventuaaaaaaaaaa..................................................aaaaaaalllllllyyy they settle down - like 100 or so hours loud music playing at the very minimum.

 

Enjoy !

So, I basically, f-cking hated the m50's. Needed to get that off my chest.

Ah that's good to hear mate thanks.

Been playing them loud for over 6 hours today with a variety of music. Will continue tomorrow.

You're far from the first person I've seen who says that.
