Does anyone know if this is a good pair? I plan on using these headphones with the ibasso along with the He-500, and Sennheiser HD650's

These hurt my head almost right away. The good sound quality is not noticeable when my ears and head hurts. Having said that, the price is low and if you don't like them then just return them.

For the most part, this system was great for my music - bass was loud but tight (however another demo Q701 I tried had really flabby bass on another amp that does well on the K701). One gripe I had though was while the Q701 positioned everything backward a bit from your head, every instrument was there on a flat plane, instead of a sense of depth that is created by some headphones/speakers that just move some instruments forward, but the pads on both units I got to try so far were oddly shaped thanks to how they sit on the headphone rack. The thinnest part of the earpad instead of being on the front was on the rear of the first (that I didn't try with the DX100), and the second one had the thinnest part on top on the left ear then slightly forward on the right ear (this I tried with the Q701). I suppose as long as you don't use a rack that puts pressure on the earpads these will perform well enough.
