Just don't loose your hope before you get that amazing sound coming through. ;)
Thanks, still thinking whether I really need another pair of headphones...lol.
The S500 certainly improved a lot, listened to them for a few minutes when I got them and and decided to put them straight on a 200 hour burn-in session.
Sometime later I switched to the HD25 velour pads and those improved the sound towards a bit more mid/treble presence.
Not a big difference but with the original pads the S500 always sounded a tad too warm for my taste.
