Yeah that would be a good classification of the S500 to my ears for sure.

Maybe we should pool our funds together, buy one, and send it to Zardak to see what he thinks. very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Seriously, don't mind me. I'm just going through my typical early morning giddiness. Somebody who can answer Warren's question please chime in here. I'm interested, too. smile.gif

That might be a liitle like casting pearls... Waste of a good pair of S500's when there are starving audiophiles who would benefit more from the charity... biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Gotcha, thanks Troll!  smile.gif  I just ask because I've already got a K518LE and an M-80... not entirely sure I want something too similar right at this moment.

I already know what he'll think of it... (Click to show)

All the other posters don't know what they're talking about, screw 'em and their stupid opinions.  I have heard every single pair of headphones ever made, including all the headphones that I've never heard, and I can tell you that the [INSERT_CURRENT_GEAR_HERE] is the bestest.  Trust me, my hearing is omniscient and nigh on perfect, and it has already determined that the [INSERT_CURRENT_GEAR_HERE] is the bestest of the bestest that will ever be bestest.  Also, the [PREVIOUSLY_CURRENT_GEAR] is right up there too - just as bestest only not quite so bestest but pretty bestest so you can get that too.  Don't get anything else.  I have spend my own money testing all the headphones out there, and I promise you both of these are second to none, except maybe each other.  I stake your life on it.  I am not a troll.

 

Did I miss anything?

 

EDIT:  You want real comedy?  Let's all pitch in to send him a V150.  evil_smiley.gif

Yeah, that was far too well written and contained proper spelling and punctuation. You also didn't belittle anybody by name or use words that the forum autocensor would render as *'s. You also failed to mention anything about a "high end 24/96 DAC" which, as I correctly sleuthed out (I'll take my bow now biggrin.gif "Thank you, thank you, first I want to thank my mother..."), was an E11 (currently an E12).* And let's not forget the frequent references to being employed in/proprietor of a professional studio.

 

I should send my dilapidated pair of V700, held together with duct tape, Gorilla glue, twist ties, and magic. And, of course it's fashioned from pieces of two different units, since between them there aren't enough non-broken plastic parts to build two complete, functioning sets. I could even offer a choice of pads--set #1, flattened and with dried out, cracked pleather; or set #2, which lost most of their pleather and which I "converted" to "soft" pads by removing the remainder of the pleather in a soapy water bath. Complete with the loose, worn out fit, these disparate elements should combine to create the greatest headphone our friend has ever heard.**

 

*Again, certainly nothing to sneeze at, but certainly not unusual enough to warrant the mystery and defensive obfuscation upon being confronted to name the equipment.

One so special and exclusive that even Google doesn't know about it.  wink.gif

I applaud Zardak's drive and desire to be the best. If you are going to be a twit, then darn it, be the King of the Twits! Go Big or Go Home! Can you imagine a world where everyone embraced their True Calling with such gusto? Nothing would be beyond our reach - the universe would be our playground. Zardak is truly a giant in the land of Twitdom - the rest of of us are mere fleas by comparison.

I'm okay with my limitations in that regard.

Good bass combined with somewhat forward upper mids and smooth highs, but (most importantly) the clarity comes without any bundled sibilance.

 

Very best,

Heya,

 

Sounds like a cross between several of my current units.  I think I might hold off, plus there's a UE600 that's calling out to me.

 

Very best,

They are my universal headphone....I can use them with any device I own, no synergy issues. My ears aren't IEM-friendly, but that's actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise, since I don't have to obsess over output impedance of various players, etc. (not to mention, less money I'd likely be spending that I don't really have)redface.gif

 

Very best,

I may have to do a temp swap of these for the Sony MDR-ZX701's I have. I know you want to try them after the Inner Fidelity review (MDR-ZX700, the ones without the iPhone/iPod controls). This way we get a week or so with 'em,...our usual M.O.biggrin.gif

Heya,

 

A UE600, eh? To go along with the UE700 (unless I missed something)? I remember an IF review saying the UE600 was a pretty decent value.

 

And, on that subject, have you tried any of the stuff from that MEE box thing you got? I've had a good experience with them so far (one nice sounding model that just wasn't the right fit, sound signature-wise or physically; one dirt-cheap model that I've been able to work with) and thus kind of want their stuff to do well. I'm particularly interested in the A151, since it often dips into the "it's so cheap why not?" range.

 

Very best,

Well in this case, the aforementioned UE600 is only $50...

Hmm haven't read it.  What draws me to it is that it seems to be a little less peaky than my UE700... and if there's one complaint I have about the UE700, it's that it can run a little hot up top sometimes.

LOL, not even opened.  Though I didn't get an A151 in that Mee What promotion, I got an M6 and an M31 like Doc.  I did, however, get an A151 separately.  Likewise, it is also unopened.  Dunno why I do that.  Guess I figure that if I stock up during Winter, then I can open one every month or two and keep the holiday cheer going all year round.  Yeah, I'm weird *** that way.

Just like that, in orange.  Do not change the orange (because orange is better than pineapple).

Actually, WTF am I doing thinking about a UE600?  I've got both a UE700 and an unopened A151?!
