Yeah should be, and hopefully it will sound better without EQ as well.
I'm on my way over to the dark-rockboxed side now! xD
EDIT: And done!

I experienced the most amazing sound on these today with orchestral music. I was using my phone, and I turned on the virtual room effect, which normally makes everything sound really bad, but with these it makes the treble much more powerful and aggressive, which made orchestral music perfect for me. I loved it!
I'm thinking about buying some Etys now for outside now, though. I'd love to have some isolation from the world again.
No one really responded last time I asked, so I'll try again. How much does the sound change when using the WS55 pads? Does it open up the soundstage a bit? I've used HM5 pads in the past, but I really enjoy the bass without the HM5s on so I probably won't use them anymore.
Also, is there no place to buy them other than ebay? $35 is a hefty price for pads, and I could get a pair of s400s for cheaper haha.
Just look through the past 10 or so pages, you will find what you need.
Sabre all the way.
have you herd of a destroyer dac its around the same price as the sabre
Should I as a beginner try these instead of an Grado SR80i (which I love, but isn't as portable (read, solid) as these)? This one is almost 3 times cheaper, so not really comparable but I would like to hear some opinions about it.
Desktop only or portable as well? If portable are you going to be just using a laptop only or is there a DAP involved?
Yes, these are much more versatile than the Grados. Also, the S500 have much better bass.
Oke thanks, so these are really good then. I loved the Grado's sound, so I am exited to hear these.
