Looks like I predicted correct :D

Really? I find that loosening the swivel (e.g. with mineral oil) allows for the cups to form more smoothly to my head, even on older HE models. This is a welcoming ergonomic change IMO.

We'll see. Apparently youre the ergonomics guru (no sarcasm) so perhaps these will work out for me. 

 

Look forward to "Chris_Himself's Magic Imbued LCD-2's for sale" if the 560's can trump the 2's

Will the next HiFiMAN headphones be HE-560 instead of the HE-600?

I think the HE-500 more like an SUV than a truck in that analogy. In this case it's the Lamborghini Urus. biggrin.gif
