I am excited about Oppo PM1 being at the meet. Want to try if that narrow headband is comfortable or if I'll get the HE560.

I am most definitely coming~ I however would love to meet up with someone in Seattle and head over there together (whether that would be in the same car or separate). I'm not very familiar with Seattle roads...

Thanks sachu, your dedication puts me in shame. You saved the world.

The S.E.X. is a criminally underrated amp. I was down at the SF Head-Fi meet a couple years ago and it was by far my favorite for both the HE-6 and AKG K1000s. The power it produces is incredible and it just exudes synergy. You will see more benefit on the HE-6, but the HE-500 is very similar so I would expect excellent results. 

 

if you stick into headphones like those or the HE-500 or something very picky about power reqs, this is for you.

 

From their site:"Most any dynamic headphones with a standard TRS plug will work with the S.E.X. amp – Sennheiser, Grado, BeyerDynamic, Sony, AKG, etc. The S.E.X. is particularly adept at driving picky headphones like AKG K1000s, Audeze LCD-2s and the Hi-Fiman headphones."

 

I would imagine it would work great with any Fostex moded T50Rps, such as Mad Dogs, Alpha Dogs, Paradox, etc. Apparently if you buy two right now, it's pretty cheap (... wink, wink)
