  • Summary: Disclaimer: My opinions are just my own. They do seem to be in contrast to some others' experiences, but we all have different preferences.   I heard great things about this headphone, and really wanted to like it. I can see why they are popular, and they indeed are fun. However, I'm a treble-head, and as one who was spoiled by the beyerdynamic DT880's, I hated them.   (TL;DR: I bought these new from Headroom.
  • Pros: Excellent bass, great impact and body, surprisingly comfortable for large noggins.
  • Cons: Lack of treble resolution, a bit of ringing, some quality control issues, heavy, hot.

Was für eine Gurke

  • Summary: Ich konnte den Hifiman HE 500 gut 3 Stunden bei Allegro HIFI mit dem Ultrasone Edition 8 vergleichen. Beide Hörer waren über 200 Stunden eingespielt. Als KHV diente ein Lehmann Cube und ein Violectric V200. Der Ultrasone schlägt den Hifiman um Längen. Der Ultrasone ist dynamisch, schnell, kraftvoll, herrliche klare Bässe, seidenweiche Höhen. Dazu federleicht und bequem. Der Hifiman HE 500 klingt dumpf und langsam. Alles klang fast amerikanisch gesoundet. Furchtbar.
