    Lol. The thought of having a free breathing open over the ear set using Carbon nanotubes. JVCs new style of tuning for headphones. Sends chills up my spine. lol!

    LMAO, them cheapo FX40's has already ruined everything I own and it's already my favorite, these S500s or the FXD70s are just icing on top. Most likely both ha

    A brief comparison of the FXD70/80s with the S500, though I wouldn't mind a more detailed one ha

    WoW, I completely missed the part that the 40's bass was bigger than the FXD70s, makes sense but I want mo' of that top quality BASS. Seems like the S500s are truly a upgrade to the FX40s in all aspects then.  But IEM's are more versatile than headphones though, damn it!

     I went on Amazon to order me some velour pads and it is being sold by a vendor I have never heard of before. Annovaus.. Sounds Euro. Dutch perhaps? Anyhow so I am ready to check out and it does not give me any type of shipping option. Just the free one which takes 20 to 30 business days? Must be traveling around the world first before it gets to me. Probably on a boat. Why it would take so long I have no idea. I found some original Adidas Blue ones on ebay but costs as much as the headphones themselves. $56 or so. Blue velours would be cool but I would rather buy another pair of HA-S500 headphones for that much. Disappointing to say the least.
     
    I did a quick search online and BnH has these same pads on their site for the same price but with 10 days free ship. Guess which one I went with..If all these do is throw out more comfort like having pillows on my ears. I think the $23.50 will be money well spent. One of the reviewers on BnH says it fit his AKG K81Dj headphones perfectly which is good news as those are about the same sized, cup wise as the HA-S500. If these mean more comfort. Even better balance and added a bit of air to the sound.. Bonus. As always stay tuned for the results. Fingers crossed.
     
    Before guys start getting the velours. Let me confirm that they fit first. I would hate for guys to start getting the velours only to find out they fit too loose or have issues with the fit somehow. I will probably get them in a weeks time and by then the first group of guys that bought the HA-S500 should have their headphones, and some more impressions.

    I think my HP-CN 40 were purchased from AnnovaUK which is in the UK :). Annova US is just a way for them to sell on Amazon US instead of Amazon UK. I think my Maxells took around a week to get to NY. They are on ebay as well. For future reference anyway.
     
     
    I assume your talking about the HD25 pads, I'd have tried others first. I sold mine. Comfort is not the best for velours, the holes in the center are small and don't help stage(HD-25 is noted for it's lack of stage) and they are designed to sound similar to their pleather/vinyl counterpart. Better balance and air is quite unlikely. Too bad I didn't see this sooner. Not that it can't work out but I think the chances are lower than others. Good luck!

    Well, just to chime in a little bit more on Dsnuts excitement about these headphones, I met with the owner of Aurisonics last Thursday in Chicago (I can't remember if I mentioned that on this post or not). We listened to a lot of IEMs (mainly his new products, but he asked me to bring a bunch of my IEMs that I thought had excellent sound regardless of price). I brought a lot of different things - including the new JVCs. The S500 was the only headphone I brought with me. It probably had 40 hours burn-in on it at the time (maybe a little bit over 50). The S500 was the only phone I let him listen to that seemed to impress him somewhat (meaning he asked a few questions about it and about the carbon nanotubes technology). He even seemed more interested in the sound of the S500 than the sound of the D70 or D80 (which makes sense to me since as good as both are they don't really compete as a whole against the Aurisonics products). So Dale Lott doesn't seem to like a lot of things that not his creations (or if does he keeps a poker face about it). But he didn't keep a poker face when hearing the S500, and he was shocked about the price too. Take this anyway you want to take it.

    Just make sure you pick the high quality streams to get full sonic range.

    Listening to my FXD80 now in anticipation for the S500 to ship. Paid the bicycle man from japan past weekend and it's still not shipped yet. PMed him over ebay and no reply.

    Just like Dsnuts and others here said, it does ship out much sooner than expected. Mine have been shipped yesterday, now I'll have to wait for them to arrive, then we'll see :)

    I am watching Judge Dredd Blueray. Using the HA-S500. Ericp. You gotta try them out with a good movie. Lol. These are prty great. I can throw the hype when warranted.. The clarity of the tuning on these is great for gaming. And watching movies. Anything you need a headphone for. Oh and music is off the chain..These make perfect laptop companions is what these are but the sound itself. You guys gonna cheat.!  Happy listening fellas.
     
    Bjaardkers Bassdrive on front page. This works great for the earphones as well. Thank you my friend.. I hope you get a chance to test out this bass.

    Geez, if the MSRP for these phones is going to be $50, and shipping from japan is ~1 month, I'm seriously wondering when they'll become available in the US...
     
    I can only be a matter of a couple months right?

    Does ~1 month, mean estimated from 1 week to one month? Because the ones at ebay will not take a month but 1 week or less. The price will be 71 dollars at ebay, it should be the same when it''s released in the US.
     
  15. dnullify
    The estimate was 2-4 weeks, and considering my recent luck with shipping i'm inclined to take the higher number.
