No problem. Thanks for your help.

Bought the Beat Executives based on your recommendation and I must say I am impressed, no regrets, these are great! They were fantastic on the plane!

Wait... so, you bought the headphone because it was ranked the worst out of the bunch? confused.gif

Haha well for the build quality really, I often just throw the headphones in my bag and I didn't really hear the hiss when I listen to music. I just needed a travelling set of headphones as the HD650s I don't really want to travel around with :D

Fair enough - when rugged construction is the priority it makes a lot more sense.

So in other news, my intentions were to buy the new Beats Studios and return them within the 15 day window, but it looks like my 5 year old son decided to use the box with his superhero action figures and well make some modifications. Looks like I'm stuck with them. Good thing they sound pretty good...I should have them included on my review shortly.

 

My incoming KEF M500s were cleared from Customs after a week confused.gif finally and should be here by week's end.

Take it out of his allowance for the next two years! biggrin.gif

 

That M500 delivery is very slow. Why is it that one can order something from Amazon tonight, pay an extra $5 for shipping that will bring them to your door at noon tomorrow......yet other things get tied up at Customs for ions blink.gif

Two years...I think closer to 3. tongue.gif

 

Customs had them for a full 7 days. confused.gif That didn't help!

My M500s finally landed (after a week with Canada Customs mad.gif...well at least they quickly released my incoming KGSSHV, so I guess we're even). Initial impressions, very well constructed, very comfortable and handsome looking headphones. Sound-wise very balanced. Likely the most balanced portables I've owned.  Imaging is very spacious; especially considering these are on-ear headphones.

 

By this weekend, I'm hoping to add both the new Studios and these to my listing/review page.

Yay :)
Looking forward to how they compare to the Momentums

MacedonianHero, do you have any update on how M500 compares to the rest?

Sorry....my KGSSHV arrived late last week and I've been busy with my Stax rig. redface.gif

 

I will definitely get it up (and the new Beats 2013 Studios) by this coming week!

This site is terrible for my wallet. You just solidified my interest in the M500s.
