If you’re someone who can’t wait for my official thoughts on certain headphones & IEMs just drop me a few bucks a month to get a sneak peek.

  1. Finally a measurement of HE-500 on this site. I always think that HE-500 has one of the best tunings of Hifiman planars, better than some of the later models such as HE-560 and has more relaxed sound than Ananda/Arya.

  2. I wonder if you are going to make any comments about Oluv’s latest creation.
    I think that he did a good job making a detailed neutral IEM with a pleasant tuning, but I’m confused about that big dip at 6 on your graph.

  3. I personally own HE-500 which sounds really good for me. Still HE-560 has superior sound but not worth almost double the price (at least at the time of my HE-500 purchase).
    The only complain with HE-500 is their upper treble area, above 10 kHz – it’s definitely too strong and it makes drum instruments sound weird.
