I think he meant there are no white S500's, which there aren't

Put the S500 drivers in the S400 white ones and you got white S500.  gs1000.gif

Yup. That's your only option for white S500s...short of a coat of paint, of course. tongue.gif

 

I've considered doing the transplant myself, but I'm not too keen on investing in another pair of S500s for a mere cosmetic change.

+1

 

Anyways, it's the sound that matters.

 

I'll be pairing my S500s with a C&C BH amp soon (which will replace my E11). biggrin.gif

yeah I'm with Ds on this one. I really like how white looks with certain headphones, but you can't beat the gun metal on these.

I chose black over gun metal when I bought mine.

Gun metal looked cheap and tacky to me in the picture.

Beware, blacks scratch VERY easily, as opposed to the gun metal ones.

Well I've been chucking them about for a few months now and so far no marks whatsoever.

Really great construction for the price, but we all know that already. wink.gif

Indeed, they're a solid build, but the black ones have a fine layer of some matte matter on the cups, and I've had two scratches on mine already, whereas the gun metal ones don't have such a coating, and are still intact. I also think they do look classier in black ;)

Tenso shipping is closer to $20, are you using another shipping service?

post #4784 of 8092

Do you have to deal with Tenso with doing that?

 

This is the seller I bought mine from (although I bought the gunmetal ones, which he doesn't have listed right now), $57.60 after shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Victor-JVC-HA-S500-B-Black-Carbon-Nanotube-Stereo-Headphones-/130846991404?_trksid=p2047675.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14294%26meid%3D5461998580397608679%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D1095%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D140904104844%26
