Here's my view since I was originally going to purchase the XB500, but ended up going with these HAS500s. Now, I also ordered the XB500 and it will be here tomorrow.

 

When I first opened the HAS500s and listened to them, I wasn't blown away. I thought I bought just an average pair of headphones that all these people were hyping up. I put the Sennheiser Adidas blue pads on them so they look cool but I wasn't "wow'd" by the sound at all. However, after burning these in for over 100 hours now, I can tell you that they sound amazing. I was surprised to hear things in music that I hadn't noticed before. I'm blown away at how amazing the new Daft Punk album sounds with these. You can just tell that you're hearing music the way it was supposed to be heard, even though these aren't the most neutral phones you can get. For 90% of the music I listen to, I'm going to use these. I'm actually picking up another pair in gunmetal soon. 

 

The reason I'm also getting the XB500 is because I also listen to some really bass heavy EDM... electro-house, glitch hop, and even some rap.  Sure, I could probably get much better bass canons for $200+ CAD, but I found these at a good price. For this last 10% of music I like, I want bass that rattles my ears. Since I heard that the XB500 EQs nicely, and since the bass is already in them, and considering the price, buying these is a no-brainer for me. I also rockbox'd my sansa clip+ so I have great EQ options to work with.

 

tldr - For all quality, live instrument music that I want to listen to, I will use my HA-S500s. For synthesizer/bass heavy music, like some EDM stuff, where I want my ears to rattle, I will use my XB500s. 

 



The s500 sound better with the blue paddle that you put it?

You can surely use a paddle to swim out into the sea.

I think there is a bit of an improvement with the blue Adidas pleathers, though the sound is great with the stock pads. It's much more comfortable with the Adidas pleathers though and it looks better. :)

Does the middle part of the headband collapse easily or does it snap into place?

It just collapses, no snapping involved. ;-)

I've sported the HA-S500's on campus while my Brainwavz M5's were lost. I felt weird. I feel wearing headphones while out and about is just weird anyway.

I'm so irritated right now.

Retarded postman doesn't even knock on my door, Just leaves a stupid notice on where to pick it up.



Seriously, What the hell. I'm literally about to flip **** right now because the left side of my face is doubled in size from an impacted wisdom tooth, Now I have to go back to that ******* post office looking like I have cotton in the side of my mouth.


GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Key word, Looking like I have cotton :(

How hard is it knock on a door? Those guys literally have the easiest job and they can't do it properly. I sat there listening for the guy even, He must have ninja tip-toed to my doorstep then whispered to see if I was home then placed it on my door handle ever so gingerly.


Omg the ****** even had the nerve to check 'No Answer' on this delivery sheet. Lol

Nothing weird about it lol

 

Only weird if you use the HM5 pads outside.
