The JVC HA-S500.. Appreciation, fan thread. - Page 246

post #3676 of 8096

As a secret follower of this thread, gotta say that all the mods done so far have been great.

 

I have 3 pairs of the S500 and must say, these are impossible to beat at their price. Thanks Dsnuts again for discovering these.

Listening to Technikal on my S500 and my HE-6 and he/she sounds great. Thanks for throwing it this way.

Interesting. So just as an experiment. I threw on the stock HA-S500 pads and then my HM5 over them.

 

These sound great with this..No tape mod needed. Somehow the effect of having the HM5 over the stock pad configuration just works..While sound changes are not night and day from the other pads. I don't think other pads are needed at all. So while I haven't gotten my O rings yet to just try the HM5 pads. This works great too. I can't say which pad combo configuration gives a better sound. There is certainly more bass end to the stock pads vs the others but not to where it detracts from the mids.. So for guys that want a bit more bass emphasis just using your stock pad with the MH5 pads over them works just fine. Sounds great for trance.

 

So ATH Pleathers if you want a more balanced sound.

 

HM5 pads over your stock pads to have. More comfort over the ear and the sound is more fuller. These just works well with actually any pad or none on your HA-S500. The comfort level has gone through the roof for me however. I watched some movies and played some games using this. Just awesome what these pads do. Not to mention these now sound like full sized cans in every single way. The comfort factor alone is worth getting a pair. The sound enhancement is an extra bonus. Highly recommended.

I wrote my whole master thesis listening to their "Drink the Sea" album almost exclusively wink.gif

 

Anyone here has something like this stuff? Always looking for something new to listen to biggrin.gif
 

 

If you haven't yet, check out Pretty Lights at www.prettylightsmusic.com.  Funky Electro-Hip Hop fusion sort of stuff.  I think you'll dig it, especially since you enjoy Glitch Mob.  Everything he's released ever he puts up on his site for free download at 320kbps (for the most part)

He was voted UK best Hard Trance DJ/Producer, and always puts out quality tunage. Be careful, your ears might explode from the bass in this album. biggrin.giftongue.gif

 

Very cool. Thanks.

Wait till you get to the second one. The style/tempo change around thirty seconds in got me so hooked on that track and I still don't know why exactly. I just like it a lot wink.gif. Hope you'll enjoy the rest of the album and their work as much. Don't forget to check out their remix stuff. Pretty cool tracks in there too.

So. Here it is. The prizes up for grabs.

 

1st prize

700

The requirement. You have to provide a review of the RHAs. These are actually very good earphones. A bit of a surprise to me actually..Worthy of being packaged with the white Sansa fuze loaded with music you may or may not like. Electronica.. Thanks goes to Danny Bai for providing the Sansa Fuze.

 

2nd place.

700

A pair of RHA-350 and one of my all time favorites. The MP8320. Again the winner of this prize is required to give a little feedback about the RHAs. Thanks to Isabelwatson of RHA for providing samples of the RHA-350.

 

3rd 4th 5th.

700

 The third place winner will also get a pair of MP8320s. The rest will get Rosewill woodies. Makes for great gym buds and actually have better sound than you think.

 

Ok so the prizes aren't from the prices right. But hey it is something to shoot for. The RHA phones will surprise the guys that get them..And who don't want a White Sansa Fuze.?

Just recieved my HA S500 today after ordering about two weeks ago. A ten second listen yielded this impression: good midrange and treble, where's the bass end?

So they are burning in now. I use a variety of burn in tracks typically which include sweeps, pink/white/brownian noise, and this track by Kharma legendary speakers which is a bunch of instruments playing at extremes (piccolos, kettle drums, etc.). However, it sounds like I should skip all this and just use dubstep to help these headphones move along quickly.

I am going to Finland in one week, and I'd like these guys to be moderately burned in by then. So what music will be most effective? Or does it really not matter provided the music is loud?

The more bassier and faster the beats the better. I use drum n bass. Best burn in music on the planet. Just beats the drivers silly.
