Picked up the HE-500 a few days ago, and have an LCD-2.2 on the way, also going to be ordering a WA6SE soon with a couple tube upgrades. (Rectifier and driver tubes)

Nice, Austin!

Okay, not to completely de-rail this thread, but seriously, after hearing the LCD-2, HD800, T1, K1000, HE-6, and any other high end headphone I've auditioned, these headphones have by far impressed me the most, everything about them is simply stunning.

I can't remember too much, but if I do remember correctly, it was because it was too analytical.

They're extremely analytical out of the box, but that's changed a bit after about 30 hours of burn in, ahaha.

So I was right, that was my impression of them. I like to enjoy the music man!

IMO HE-500 is not "fun" not because they are too analytical, but because they don't have anything for what you can love they sound, and also they "level" is not on par with tops like HE-6, HD-800 and some others, of course thats being said about a top rigs thats matches specific headphone model... otherwise HE-500 is nice variant for universal HP on middle class rigs... thats all IMHO of course...

 

P.S. I had been an owner of HE-500 for about half-year (also own HE-6 and LCD-2 at that period of time), so my opinion of they sound is quite settled...
