Great pix.  Nice angle on the connectors.

 

Now, have at 'em!

Hm...I can't seem to take the grill retainer ring off...it might be glued or something.

 

I took an earpad off though, looks to be a fair bit of changes to the mounting ring as well as the driver baffle ring, and the driver is indeed single-ended with the magnets on the outer face (much like HE4).

Is the top headband and the piece that connects to the teak ear cup metal? Like all metal or metal with a plastic clamp

Nice! Thanks for the pics.

Maybe the grill ring tabs have been moved the same relative amount of degrees the connector has? Also does the grill look more breathable/different or is it the same as the older models?

The design details are as interesting to me as the sound :p

It's mostly plastic, with the cup being wood and the actual headband being springsteel. The whole headphone is ridiculously light in hand.

Nah I cant get a good grip on the grill retaining ring, it's pretty set-in. And the grills look to be identical to the ones used on older models.

 

Like I'm sure the ring can be worked off with some elbow grease, a small flathead screwdriver, and some deft careful hands, but it doesn't seem like it just comes off (unlike older models).

Nice pics!! Thanks jerg. Nothing like a little hp pron. I wonder how it feels when worn. I'm sure all the info is forthcoming.

I think I'm gonna take a driver out of the cup from the earpad side, since I can't take the grills off. Photo in abit...

 

Edit:

 

 

So 8 bars of magnets on a single side, the grid pattern looks the same as what's used on HE500/6. The screws are not screwed into wood but into a hidden metal ring.
