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

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