Heh, looks like did the open grill mod to an HE-6 and added a comfy headband. Keen.

EDIT: Dang, can't tell what kind of cable connector the cans have. More details available anywhere?

To early to say yet I suppose but hopefully quality of materials and manufacturing processes are all ironed out before pre-orders kick in.

HE1000? I do really like the way HE1000 are constructed (pads, grill, minimalistic internal design that won't block sound from leaking out naturally)... Much better than all those Oppos, LCD-X(C) etc.
 
Maybe 2x better than HE500? I struggle to find a planar-magnetic headphone to substitute HE500 because while Audezes are darker (too dark to call neutralish) and their construction and comfort suck (extremely), the rest of Hifiman line is too bright-sounding. HE500 (especially modded) just offer the best of both worlds - the full-bodied nature (bass, mids) of Audeze as well as Hifiman's treble, openness and better comfort (which is not on HD800 level but still perfectly fine for my head). It's weird Hifiman discontinued them because they were trully unique (and I am worried that my pair may stop working at some time in the future with no chance for a repair =/). Wish HE1000 sounded more similar to HE500 than HE6 or HE560... Not gonna happen almost for sure.
