They just feel like a quality product

I got my first taste of planar bass early last year with the he400 and even though it punched more and lower than my flavor of ...  Read More

Sound quality is great overall plenty of bass for electronic music and anything else for that matter


These are the best i ever heard and price was a steal

Well that too will cost you an additional fee as well

I listen usually at night laying in bed so the weight isnt an issue


Lovely shipping case and comes with a 10 foot headphone cable


They came with a nice box and the packaging and presentation was done well

I believe this means you probably need a decent headphone amplifier to get the best potential out of the he500

Do yourself and build a 14 to banana plug adapter and use the speaker taps on the emotiva to power these and you will be amazed

Off went the hd598 and the he4 gained permanent residence


Unlike the excellent audeze products the he500s are easy to drive to boot

I bought a schiit lyr headphone amp which worked perfectly

So while you might be missing a tiny bit by settling for the he500 this is in no way a 3star or even 4 star headphone

I drive them with either a schiit mini stackmagni 2u and modi 2u or a recently acquired jotuneheim

    Lets jump to what matters the most which is sound

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    A better way to describe this they have the tendency to pronounce the s letter in vocals rather sharply to the extent where its fatiguing

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    And fatiguing it was when using the denons but with the he500 mind you that problem still exists but toned down by a great margin and thankfully its not as fatiguing even after 3hrs of listening

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    They do run at low ohms though just like the denons but i guess them being orthodynamic headphones has a part to play in it
