Pros: Sound, flexibility and price

Cons: High gain and "DIY style chassis"

Can be bought ready built (USD279) or cheaper as a kit. Tube is 6n23p "Reflektor". ---- Comments answered: - Thanks for the 5751 tube information. Ordered some tubes, including a 5751 - I still prefer the other amps for the Audezes, but not for HE-500. Love the soundstage, vocals and details the combo provides

Quality Amp


Pros: Sound fantastic, quality build, versatile

Cons: Looks a bit boring

After several months, I used both the V200 and Burson HA-160D. I find that they both are excellent amps to e.g. K702, LCD-2, HE-300 and HE-500. Last week I decided that the 160D had to go, since I always reverted to the V200 for all these headphones. There is something likeable with the V200 sound signature and build quality.   The project86 and WA reviews elaborate further.

Quite surprised


Pros: Light, comfort and the most important: All-rounder headphone for music generes

Cons: Could be too big for some sculls

  1) HE-500 sounds darker and smoother than the HE-300. Not the other way around. IMHO. 2) HE-300 articulates better than HE-500 and for some, the HE-300 will feel like fresh air / an opened window to the music compared with the HE-500 3) HE-300 has a bass impact the excels the K70x. They are worlds apart. Generally the K702 is perceived tuned quite brighter through the whole spectrum than the HE-300 4) HE-300 and the HE-500 have both good comfort, the former is best for those appreciating it's net weight and the latter for those finding the HE-300 too light. The HE-500 feels more sturdy   Bass impact enough to make all music genres believable = tick Vocals....
