Literally anyone looking for information on the 5XX here will find the topic inunidiated about how its not an HE500. Literally nothing to do with the 5XX itself, just a bunch of people whining about something they don't even have.
But yes, let's continue discussing what it isn't. Let's saturate this thread so much, anyone looking for pertinent information on the 5XX will have to look elsewhere. I'll probably edit the title thread to 'The Official let's cry about the 5XX not being the 500" thread.
That’s a good thing. If I had bought this thinking it was a he-500 I’d be pretty angry. Now everyone will know that it’s a good planar headphone at a great price, but NOT a he-500. The internet is doing the job that hifiman did not do.
