Works perfectly fine for me as well. The E11 is a great little amp for its price!

Yeah, C3 + E11 (bass boost on 1) + S500 is an awesome portable rig that doesn't break the bank

I guess that is a little lower than the Clips....I think they were measured at 15mW by he who may not be named. evil_smiley.gif

 

When I use my iPod and LOD with the E11, I won't even use bass boost 2....that makes it too muddy. Bass boost 1 does work nicely though.

We know the love, too bad about all the others that don't share in our sonic bliss! beyersmile.png

I use the E11 with it because of the bass boost adjustments, and also because the amp of my S2 is not that good.

How does the jvc ha s500 compare with the senn hd 25 or amperiors?

I dont have any experience with any of these headphones, however I can tell you that the sennheisers are very neutral and clear sounding but they lack in terms of comfort for some people (especially those who wear glasses).

tds101 has both the S500 and the HD25....maybe he'll stop by and chime in.

Bump this. I'm curious also.

From what I can remember the 500s had tonnes more bass. The 25s had a lot more detail and a far more neutral sound!

I got both so will test and post a comparison soon.

So most of the cable is removable? Just a thought, since the cable, while certainly hardy, is my second least favorite thing about the headphones (the first being the chipping).

 

So while we're waiting for comparisons, and this thread is in lull, I figured I'd give this one another shot. While nowhere near as important as sound, this could be cooool.

I've had tried both and I can say I prefer the s500's...


I returned my hd 25's, Way too expensive and lacked bass (for me)
They were a great sounding phone, but not worth 200 dollars...

Do it up!

 

I am going to see If I can route wire from one side to the other, through the hinges if possible so it's not exposed. If I can't have a detachable cable then I would like to have single sided.

 

We have a pile of laptop boards at work, the 3.5mm jacks on those are very small and if I can find one I like I might just have to do a removable single side cable mod.

My birthday is in less than a month. ;)

 

The only three things I've wanted for some time are my student loans paid off, a new laptop, and an RME Babyface (since my TASCAM 1641's drivers are showing their age and putting artifacts in music I get paid to mix), not necessarily in that order. All of them are several birthdays worth, especially the first one which I think I may manage on my own. rolleyes.gif

 

I think that I could finally learn to solder, and I wouldn't even have to mess with the structure of the headphones themselves!

 

And if I mess it up, then I have an excuse to grab the silver ones and never deal with the chipping again!

 

I only have about $50 to lose! Good luck on getting wire through the band; I sense some deliberation on JVC's part with the design so wire doesn't go through it.
