these drivers are made of carbon nanotubes, they're harder than diamonds so I don't think sound vibrations will have any effect on the material here

 

it's mostly a psychological effect

Yes, that can be true. Let's say then it appeared to me that their sound drastically changed with some use, in a way I didn't experienced with other cans I owned that underwent the same treatment. Whatever the reason may be! (psycological or actual, physical adjustment)

If carbon nanotubes are harder than diamonds, how can they move?

It gets mixed results, my friends said it is muddy but I think they are fine. A bit boomy but that's what they were aimed for, I believe. They sound great though and isolation is better than I expected

Only thing that might be an issue is that they become uncomfortable after a while but it's common with on ears.

Hard to not like these.

They have noticeably less bass than XB500, but SQ is better.

I tend to EQ down the bass (the upper midbass mainly while boosting the certain mid and high frequencies) on XB500 and boost the bass (accomponied by 2k boost) on S500s.

Built like a tank! 

Last night quarrelled with my wife - she's a very strong person (also in muscles) - catch my S500 from my neck and throw to the wall, with all strength. Now writing this with JVC on my head and enjoying Led Zeppelin with 105 dB! :evil:

So, today I revisited my HA-S500. It had been what ? Like 2 years ? Or more ?

I pair it with Sony NW-ZX2 and while I had been spending time with my IM-04 and fx750 for a while there, I came back to S500 and I still have this satisfaction in

- soundstage, articulated bass, and analytical highs. A little bit of sparkling peak at some higher range which kinda of bring the higher note of any string instruments to be a little bit more artificial, but that is just fine. Because otherwise this will cost lol....300-450$.

But nothing excel at everything, this pair excel at electric , dance, some pop and modern stuff.
