The JVC HA-S500.. Appreciation, fan thread. - Page 460

post #6886 of 8117

Decided to place a order on these tonight because of all the praise these are getting.  I'm excited to see if they surpass my current favorite budget champs, the Panasonic HTF600.  I was blown away at how good those sounded despite being only $35.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised (especially after burn in). My son has the Pany HTF600 and these blow them away IMHO. So much more detail and the quantity and quality of bass is amazing. I bought him a pair of the S400's (25 bucks shipped) and he hasn't used his Panasonics since. L3000.gif

Still thinking about these. Never had any on-ear headphones for years because they look ridiculous on my ears haha!

Not really the ES700s has a more delicate/ intricate sound, whereas the S500s has that fun mainstream linear sound that the majority will dig more.

 

Both sound pretty different but technically you can say the ES700s are superior. The S500s are no joke, regardless of the price. But their cheap price only make it that much mo' sweet.

Mackem, one of these days you're going to have to submit a photo of you ears - they are becoming legendary!

 

I still think that you should get the S500's with the HM5 pads - I'm sure they are big enough to go over your ears. And they are comfortable (the stock pads on your ears may be uncomfortable - they are for me). And the HM5 pads tame the bass just a bit which tworks well with the S500's for me.

True! I paid as much for the lambskin PADS for the es700's as I did for the entire S500 biggrin.gif

I received them today! It took 8 days to ship! Very fast.

First impression, build is good. Not that comfortable on my left ear. More later!

Edit: Heavy, maybe too heavy bass. Lacks treble I think. Not that convinced on my first encounter. Is there any way to improve the treble?

Burn in?

post #6898 of 8117

Working on it right now ;) I placed them directly in my PC to burn in.

Another way to balance the sound is get some WS55 pads, but you would know that already if you read the thread.

I know but those are above my budget, how about the Adidas hd 25 pads?
