how is the pros n cons for each cans in terms of comfortable and sound quality wise? like the bass depth/impact,mid,high,soundstage,bass speed,etc? :)

quite hard to find the demo set in malaysia :|


Where are you from? I can lend you my set, my location is in Cyberjaya. You can have it for like a few days if you need to.

Actually I own an M50 but I feel that the bass is not that much in quantity (needs an extra amp to satisfy my hunger :P)
and ya I agree with Darknecron that M50 is good with the kind of string instruments like violin n guitars..

I also agree with xkonfuzed in terms of M50 got a bright and harsh treble..sometimes it fatigues my ear for a high pitch vocalist listening to. smoother one is a good preference..
Then, is this S500 character similar to AKG K420? since u mentioned about a tight bass n smooth treble..

I haven't heard the K240's unfortunately.

K240 (Mk. II) have a clean, clear sound which lacks the bass inpact, but has smooth, full sounding mids and somewhat bright, crisp treble.

Interestingly enough, I've found the K240's to not blow up the highs like most AKG cans. They still don't do bass terribly impressively. They are mid-ish phones. I say "ish" because they're not quite as decadent as some other mid cans I've heard like the Sennheiser HD598. I haven't heard the older, high-impedance models of the K240's like the Sextett, however.

K420? The K series line and they digit combo go together amazing. XD But in honesty, I still love my S500's, I've been using them for over a year now, and all I can say is they are amazing and definitely worth the price, I wear them every where! But when I'm at home I use speakers, not sure how good the S500z's at minor details and stuff, as I only use them on the go or when my room gets a little Smokey, but I think that they are endgame portable headphones for me, no need to amp or anything. The only portable thing I might buy eventually is a pair of Ciems.

EDIT: Disregard this post please, I may have been listening to my S500z at home during the time of writing. :/

Got the headphones in about an hour ago. UPS Surepost sucks by the way! Not sure why but USPS (who does the final delivery for UPS Surepost) didn't leave the package on the porch like they usually do when no one is home Also, the box was small enough to fit into the mail box, but they didn't use that at first. I waited till today since yesterday was Thanksgiving, which is a given cause it's a holiday. So this time they left it in the mail box. Very weird and I got a bit frustrated lol.

 

I guess end rant?

 

Well, I actually love the headphones even though they're not burned in. I'm just gonna use them as normal. I'll probably play music louder than usual through my ipod when I'm not using them. K-Pop is really awesome with these :D. I'm also playing some music from anime. Very fun headphones. I do love my HD555 but oh man..the HA-S500 is just super fun. I'm not an audiophile by any means, but I appreciate really good headphones, and good audio equipment as well.
