Glad to see everyone(well most) are still enjoying their S500.

I found on my pair of s500 after a good burning in session, around 50-60 hours the soundstage just opened up and became more airy. Enjoying these quite abit now. Geko I think the ATH pleathers are your best bet for improving the sound (tames the bass and balances the sound) and the hd25 blue are for a cool look and overall comfort.

I have my SGS2 in a holster on my belt, and I pretty much need to be able to keep my phone there. How the heck do you carry around the Note? I have been interested in 7" tablets for a while, so I think that I will continue on down that road (and hopefully get one with a good audio chip) now that they are coming down in price.

Cool. I listened to my music on the SGN2 last night with the S500's and it sounded excellent. I love the size of the phone (phablet tongue.gif) now as it really makes watching videos and playing games  more enjoyable, browsing the net is great on it too. I thought it was huge at first but now I'm so used to it, it feels totally normal to me.

Ah I see.

So the HD25s don't improve the sound as much as the ATH pleathers?

my vote goes for the ath pleathers
the inside hole is bigger so they give a more comfortable around ear fit (may not still fit big ears though)

You might think the sound would be thinner with the larger pads, or that you'd have to turn the volume up higher, neither is the case. 

 

The comfort is night and day.  I can have them on my ears now indefinitely with no discomfort.

 

Done! Thanks, looking forward to them. Thanks also to cyloh, cute and dsnuts!
