HD500 vs HD500x


So what's the major difference between the two- other than the hardware aesthetics?

I have the HD500... just bought it in April... is the HD500x really that much better?

The HD500x has about 20% more DSP capacity - that's it. So an upgrade will be helpful only if you are experiencing significant DSP Overload situations in your HD500. The HD500x will give you a higher threshold for that limit to be reached.

that and i've seen the 500x footswitches praised as improved... if that's an area of concern, that detail might matter to you.
