I think you should appreciate both clarity and flatness of bass... Mids are also very flat and, what is important, there is no overemphasis of male or female voices (that's actually VERY nice, no sense of glare!). Treble is consistent and near-to-neutral, with slight overemphasis near 10khz which makes some drums A BIT splashy at times (2-3db less and it would be absolutely perfect). But you know, HE-500 do have even more emphasis in this region, not talking about T1 etc. In reality, you have to pay attention to it to realise that slight imbalance.
However, it's not like you put the phones on your head, play a song and immediately became an Audeze fanboy :-) When you get your headphones, I would suggest do this:
1) Try all the possible headband extensions to find the one which suites you best (actually, it took me several weeks to realise I need to extend it to the max in order to let them comfortably sit on my head)
2) Listen to music and don't panic if you do not find it SPECTACULAR - just be patient and it will start to show up... You will step by step start to realise the balance and clarity across the spectrum.
