Oh, I thought I saw a mod on here that allowed that lol. Thanks for the recommendation. I've gotten use to the on-ear feel and it is a lot more comfortable than I expected it to be over long usage, I'll probably switch out the pads though in near future to try out new things with it. Thanks again.
There was, but it was rather ugly. It involved some HM5 pads plus plastic rings to keep them in place. No one in their right mind should be doing that to their S500 IMO, looks ugly as fudge!
If you like on-ear feel then you should really get the new S680, they are a clear and direct upgrade to the S400 + S500! Thread is here - http://www.head-fi.org/t/690493/the-jvc-ha-s680-s400s-and-s500s-big-brother-is-here
