Tks! Was hoping I could sneak these into a Grado headband, or something similar...doesn't look like its happening though. Oh well...I could just wait for those crazy full-size. I have a spare kidney I could sell off (I know a guy...)

NP!

Would be good to try as a driver replacement in a pair of SR60's or 80's.

 

I hope the price will drop down the road as $250 & $350 is a lot to drop (for most) on a shipment from Japan.

But it will be great to see someone here grab them up hot out of the injection moulder and give their review!

Cool, tell us bout the sound. I guess bass will be less with these?

IMO the black looks so much nicer than gunmetal. The gunmetal is a bit tacky.

 

Can't wait for these to come in the mail.

1st impression...

Wow these things are comfy! DSnuts weren't kidding lmao

---

2nd impression...

Wow, still amazing how comfy these are!!!

Oh and bass is less than stock pads but more defined rather than boomy. Also its much better than the ATH SJ5 pleathers.

I have finally reached S500 perfection! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

We all know Google Translate isn't perfect, but this is from a Chinese forum http://erji.net/read.php?tid=1450426 and the post is about the FiiO X3. Here's the "translated" version....

FIIO X3 + JVC HA-S500 

    JVC HA-S500-called cabbage artifact in a foreign country, I also recently published an evaluation forum, personal feeling really afford cabbage artifact nickname. 


    X3 push the HA-S500 is very sufficient, subject to the design of portable headphones, X3 is called push the equipment of the highest grade of these portable headphones, even if you put 901 of these HIEND level player may not be able to get a better the sense of hearing. 

    X3 with low-frequency edge of the HA-S500 is a very obvious manifestation of high quality low-frequency, IF resolve very transparent and clear vocals poison, good high-frequency extension, inferior headphones, but in a closed portable headphones which claim to be excellent. 

    For the average portable headphone party, this combination can meet the needs of the vast majority. (Must be used to listen to classical go left) 

    summer to wear the headset S500 such a long time indeed very hot, it is best used in an air-conditioned environment. 

 

 

o0(cabbage artifact? blink.gif any Chinese speakers here capable of a better translation?)
