As far as I know mp4nation is the only place to get the HM5 pads. They also just started to carry them in velour as well. I've got great impression of mp4nation as a seller and get a lot of my stuff there.

How long does delivery usually take from them?

I am thinking of getting 2 pairs of that velour HM5 pads. They're great. I am going to use one of them for modding ha-s500. Hey @peter123 we are in the similar situation because two weeks ago I have seen a big discount on K551 at a local audio store and bought them instantly. I did not have any idea about before testing them on the store and the clarity, soundstage, imaging blew my mind. It was like Havi in a full size form.

You should get them while you can. I hear those HM5 pads get sold out pretty quickly.

Interesting, after getting the q701 I've read quite a bit about the k550/551 as they seem to be a closed version of the 701's. Hearing your description and approval of them makes me even more intrigued. I've seen them at very good prices here from time to time so I'll keep my eyes open wink.gif

Be careful, though. My teenage son is now starting to get picky about headphones and electronics. My fault smily_headphones1.gif Now I have to support his habit and mine! LOL

Sorry, for some reason I totally missed this post yesterday.

Yeah the HP200 is in my shortlist. I don't think I dare buy the HE-400 without trying them first. I've noticed many people have comfort issues with them. Also I won a pair of the semi open Fidelio L1 on eBay for dirt cheap today so have enough new toys for a while wink.gif

Yeah, my son is twelve years today and already picky on the headphones. He adored the KZ LP' s though so that was good. Maybe I'll get a chance to listen to them eventually.

I was hoping to get my vsd3s today as well but they're still in custom and will not arrive until Tuesday frown.gif

Roger Waters' album "The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking" is an AWESOME album for headphones and iems. It's mixed fantastic and chalked full of micro details.

And Chinese brand iems and amps are great (had to fit it in for this thread lol)

Get yourself some havi b3s, a portable amp, and jam this album start to finish.

#EPIC

Anybody know anything about Feel Audio? They have a dual driver(8mm and 9.4mm) for $36 or $38(depending on cable choice)...

+1. Passed on the first ones though I was interested. I might have to take one for the team with these.

I grabbed the Soundmagic E10 refurbs that were either listed here or on the deal discussion thread that were $14 for my son. He's hard on IEMs (and he tries to take care of them). So I have to watch for bargains. He likes the Bass Colours I got him, too.

HE-400s are weighty. That's the only comfort issue really. And if one has a bunch of other headphones and IEMs (like us--lol), then it's easy enough to use switch to another pair after an hour or two if the weight becomes a little much. They really are some excellent headphones, although lately I have enjoyed some K612 Pros for their more neutral sound and bit better soundstage (and yes they are more comfortable).

I'll have to remember the bass colours the next time my son ask for new IEM's. Gives me a good reason to hear them wink.gif

Yeah the weight of the HE-400 combined with my very small head makes me worried. TBH I really hate having great sounding headphones with lack of comfort. They don't get the amount of use they deserve and I cannot let go if them because I love the way they sound when I eventually listen to them.

I actually had a hard time deciding between the 612Pro and the Q701. I went to by the 612Pro in a store but they were sold out and when I got home to order on the web I found the q701 for similar price and went with them due to the detachable cable.......

The Q701s are definitely some nice headphones. They were a touch too bright for me personally, but I'd recommend them to anyone.

But back to full sized Asian headphones, I'd love to hear about any little known models you might find. Must be some others out there other than HiFiMan, Soundmagic, Sony, and Audio Technica.

Is KZ-R3 supposed to have different color right and left housings?
