I still have the SJ5 pleathers sitting around from when I gave S500 a go.  The next owner didn't need them, so I'm stuck with 'em and no use for them.  Lightly used.

Shoot me a PM if you want 'em.

As much as nice these are,
I know if I keep them they will either be unused like my m80,
Or I will disect those drivers and try to plant them in another headphone..

I am like that, because they the s500 told me they are upset with me since I dont put them on my head anymore !
Or maybe it was a dream Lol.
Thats what happens when you take a nap lol.

Can you buy pads for these to make them into over ear instead of on ear? If so which pads? These look interesting but I cannot stand on ear headphones personally. Also do they still sound good if you can convert them to over ears?

HM5 pads from MP4Nation ;)

Hmmm do they have to have those o rings and be stuffed with toilet paper? When I have tried that toilet paper thing before on other headphones it messed up the bass response.

You will need the O rings to keep them in place.

 

Stuffing the pads isnt necessary.

I just bought a pair of the HA-S500s in blackbeerchug.gif

 

 I was originally going to buy the Sony MDR-XB500s for cheap, but I'm glad they were out of stock. 

 

Hopefully these budget headphones impress me! I am going to burn them in right away. 

 

Any advice on modding? I am a bit of a basshead.

Good you didn't get the xb500 because the s500 sound way superior to them , the xb500 are just too dark sounding versus the s500 smily_headphones1.gif

How are the highs on these headphones and the soundstage with the HM5 pads? Harsh or sibilant at all?

Soundstage is above average and no tinny or sibilant highs.

On another note... ATH will be sending me the WS55 pads tomorrow. biggrin.gif

It worked out at just over £7. Chuffed!

I like to burn in head phones with thunder storm noise on youtube rain is like static and thunder for the bass. Works well for me have a listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwp&NR=1&v=n_ss7F2qmuY and its 8 hours.

There's not a way to put it on endless repeat is there?
