Please define "long".  That's a very subjective and also relative term.  :D

A few weeks ago, is that not that long ago enough? If the new model is more sensitive, that's not a problem as the HE-500's don't exactly need a nuclear reactor like the HE-6's.

Don't forget I used to have a pair of "Beats by Dre Studio" and "HiFiMAN HE-500". I sold them both, but I never sell a pair of headphones with comfort of Beats Studio and sound quality of HE-500, that headphones worth $1000+ to me. :D

I had mine for more than 8 months.

I'd rather wear a c-clamp :D on my head than have my ears subjected to Beats.To be fair I listened to Beats and was not impressed.

Both excellent, but I think the planars pull ahead when you really start to crank the volume.

+1

 

Also I like planars for the female vocal reproduction (magical mids)

Agreed, just wanted to here others opinions.

HD800 takes it IMO. Dynamic drivers just attack better.

 

The orthos don't move air the same way the HD800 does. I've tried this with HE-5LE (better than 500 in some ways), 500, and LCD-2.

 

I will reiterate that it is not wise to sell HE-500's to buy HD800. These are both headphones you need to have side by side to really lock down how they sound and what makes them different.
