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.
Ah yeah it was a challenge for me too with the S500 to get a decent level of comfort. No issues like that with the S680 however, can wear these with stock pads for hours!
Trust me mate, after a while this will become your only headphone.
That is a good price, will see what happens when the X5 comes out to see if they reduce in price but i doubt it as the X5 is supposed to be about double the price. Was going to get a clip+ for the car but will hold off and see if i can try an X3 first then if i like that use the cowon for the car
Ah yeah, for the price dude it's an amazing DAP!
The X5 will probably be double the price, and X1 won't be out for a year or so.
