Which closed cans do you guys think that's considered a serious upgrade from these? Momentums? 1r's?

Either the ES700s or WS99s would probably be your best bet.

WS99 has better mids, less aggressive highs but also less sub bass (hence the descriptions of a "quick" bass response). So if you love the S500 sub bass, the WS99 will not necessarily be an upgrade IMO. For home use only the Philips Fidelio X1 could be interesting, i haven't heard them though.

I was looking into getting these headphones as a portable, and when I saw that TrollDragon has them, I figured that I can't go wrong.

Anyway, how do these compare to the V-Moda M80's in terms of SQ? I know it's not a fair comparison considering these are $50 and the M80's are $140, but I just want to know if the M80's are worth the $100 difference.

Dsnuts did a comparison and the s500 won in all categories

Are they seriously that good? $50 beats an all-time head fi favorite like the M80's? Not doubting, just kinda surprised lol.

Well, it is the person who started the thread. There could easily be some bias going on there tongue.gif

Pick them up, they are a great portable, $35 + Shipping! You can't loose and if you don't like them give them to a family member or to someone with Apple earbuds and make their life whole and complete.

Got mine from here:
