Bass - With Balance

Posted

Pros: Amazing frequency balance, Supreme bass body without being bloated, Looks pretty as hell!

Cons: Expensive!... Awkwardly placed Y splitter on the cable

  Here are my thoughts on the TH900, posted on my blog Disclaimer: A big thank you to SCV London for loaning me the TH900 for this review!  This flagship model is the first high-end headphone from Fostex and retails for £1499. The first thing to wow you about this headphone is the pretty pretty red paint job. This is Urushi lacquer and this photo simply doesn't do it justice! Finishing off the bold looks is the Fostex logo - in platinum. This sample has a few marks, but even the wear looks sexy on these things - like a used leather jacket. Underneath all this the cups are made from a special hard-wood to help acoustic ...

My impressions of the Foxtex TH-900

Posted

Pros: Bass, Comfort, Looks, Bass

Cons: Price,

Let me start off by saying that I purchased my TH-900s from an authorized dealer for $1,300 brand new (which I still feel is a bit above their true value) about one month ago.  I have owned (and sold) several pairs of D7000s already, so after reading many reviews claiming the TH900 to be an upgrade over the D7Ks in pretty much every way I decided to buy a pair.  My first impression was that they sounded very similar, but there are actually some serious differences.  It's worth noting that I went into this situation with a bit of bias.  I really, really expected to love the Th-900s.   These are without a doubt the nicest looking pair of headphones (well,...

Pros: Comfortable to wear, very open-sounding for a closed headphone, bass!

Cons: Lack of neutrality & extreme dynamic range; unfocused-sounding

Review: Fostex TH900   originally published on November 25, 2013 revised & re-published on December 29, 2013   - download a printable 10-page PDF version of this review (right-click the link & save target, or just tap for mobile devices)   (click for larger photo)   Intro   I first heard the Fostex TH900 at CanJam@RMAF 2012 in October, which was a costly mistake.  It was one of the most promising headphone auditions that I've ever had at an audio show, enough that I was persuaded to impulse-buy my own pair on Black Friday 2012 when they were being discounted by Moon Audio. I no longer own the TH900 though and sold them earlier this year...
