I can't believe no one here has mentioned LFF's enigma yet, considering that they're both the same price and are going to be released soon-ish. I've been bugging LFF to try to get us an enigma for the NY meet since we'll have the he-560s there as well.
Despite the he-500 being an open headphone, it never really felt that "open" to me even when modded. While the enigmas are closed, they're said to sound pretty open at the same time. I'm getting tired of the hd800s lately, so I've been looking into these two headphones as an replacement.
My thoughts exactly. I want to see a "shootout" with the Enigma and the HE-560's ,but you have to take the time to realize that Luis has to "hand make" these. He is behind schedule sometime's ,and unless he wants unhappy customer's then he has to fill his order's before he sends out sample's. Hopefully, he has time to send out a set for comparison's tho'.
