Wow, Just wow, I just got my S500s in the mail and I got to say, Dsnuts was completely right. These are absolutely amazing! I have only burned them in for about 3 hours and yet I find them to already sound so muuuuuuch better than my Shure 440s. The bass in particular is fantastic. I'm almost dancing on my seat right now! This IS the basshead portable to get. I would have very happily paid a 150$ for these headphones, but the fact that these only cost 35$ makes them a complete steal!
I'll be sure to try out some of the mods within the coming days, but for now, I find the comfort to be adequate (My 440s have rather terrible comfort so take my impressions with a grain of salt!)
Thank you so much for helping me discover countless numbers of amazing headphones ds!
PS: What EQ do you guys use on the S500?
Edit: I stand corrected. The headphones sound a little muddy, but I am confident this will get fixed with burn in. BTW, if your computer has dolby home theater v4, I highly recommend that you switch on surround sound. It definitely improves the soundstage on these.
