Ah okay, that makes more sense. Though I tend to think that this provides a very comfortable listening experience, as I was fatigued quickly by the Jergpads' increase in lower treble. I should stop commenting on this though, as it is pretty off topic from the thread's purpose haha

I can get used to anything but glary or sibilant. Even if these are more forward and more neutral (which both sounds good to me!) I sincerely think none of the above will be an issue here.

I am using them with the DX90 and it power them to a very good listening level.

So many great comments, these are seeming like my ideal can, albeit I already considered the he-500 fairly neutral, but maybe that is just through the Mjolnir, I'm actually salivating at the thought of something with faster transients and more punch with the MJ. Incidentally I have never tried the Jergpads, I've always just used the Lawton pads, they are the best comfort wise for me, and after a reasonable amount of time the memory foam gets into it's groove and the 500s are actually really comfortable, but that is with extended wear. My poor wallet.

You guys have been doing work. You guys gave asked jerg every question short of how the HE-560 feels on the hands.

Do hope they end up implementing it! It's an easy fix, fast:D and cheap. If it really only affects sub-bass and nothing else (since it's just a conductivity fix as Jetg said, I'd imagine so).
Really really hope they'll do it then xD

he 560 weight is 13.7 ounces. The lightest ortho currently in production. The 560 continues to impress and will start writing the review this week and submit it for publication and keep everyone posted.

Hope the baby brother 400i follows suit with the great impressions so far...!

I am sure it will, but I'd except it to be tuned differently.

Yep, a dash of the best of 400's and 500's and I'll snag a pair 4sure.

Since the 560 are essentially a cross-breed between the 500 and 6, I'd expect the same as you :beerchug:

I've still got my eye set on the 400i. Got high hopes for that one.

You bet. The more since your 500s are gone, hmm? :/

Now I am considering whether HE560 is really end game material for me. I kinda doubt it'll be up there with hd800 and the new Jade.

Honestly if the 400i has anything to do with the old 400 I will want nothing to do with it.
