The ear pads seem to provide very ample room for my ears. If you want cramped try my Ultrasone Ed. 9. Those are for pixy ears! lol
I am looking forward to the updated version of the HE 560, which I would receive soon and will report on what I hear.
Anybody try any aftermarket cables? I would love to hear them with the new Whiplash gold plated silver cable. I had my Fostex TH900 and the ESW10 JPN redone in it and it is worth it. Not all cable has been positive in my experience but this has been. Nothing more frustrating than buying a cable and finding there is no real change or a negative one.
That travel case for the 560 looks great also. Did something mention something about the fit of the two cases?
