Been a while since I've been on this site, just wanted to share a mod I came up with for my favorite headphones, the HE-500. Long story short, the fragile headband fell apart after a couple years of use. I looked at the new line of HIFIMAN headphones and took the opportunity to do this... Alternate: Headband, Pads, Cable, Sanitary Headphone Covers Comfort is excellent, feels lighter and the headphone covers keep the pads from getting hot after hours of wearing them. Also looks a lot better than the standard cheap looking headband. Thanks for looking!
