View Full Discussion When these dropped I wondered if I should cancel my HE 5xx order. But the reviews and comments seem kind of lukewarm, with it needing mods to sound better (or good), and the 5 star review sounding more like a 3 star one...
It seems you're better off getting the Hifiman Sundara for $350, or the Drop HE 5xx for $220.
no tax, free shipping (they are in Portland OR)
If only you knew my man, ive spent more money in this hobby than I would like to admit. And yes I had to mod mine as well but these headphones are pretty much as good and sometimes i prefer them over my $1200+ Pair of headphones. Had i found out about these sooner i probably would have saved money lol
