I bet those 535's are amazing? How's the fun factor v.s. transparency?

Considering you have the HD600, I'd say the HE-500 is the closest in sound while the TH600 is almost the complete opposite. You also sent back/sold a LCD2 and HE-400 - The HE-500 is similar to the LCD2 just with a fair bit more treble and larger soundstage. The treble is not harsh/sibilant like the HE-400 can be at times.

Thanks a lot for your thoughts man. I'll look into it further.

6. Grado PS1000 (I'll have this for a number of weeks - borrowed from a friend)

7. Sennheiser HD600

8. Fischer FA-011LE
 

 

Where do you put the TH900?

post #3592 of 4369

Figure I'd do an update since it's been a while with my current batch and I have new thoughts.

 

Open

  1. AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition (Q701 pads)
  2. Grado SR325is
  3. Audio-Technica AD700
  4. AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition (AE pads)
  5. Koss PortaPro
  6. Sennheiser HD 600
  7. Hifiman HE-400

 

Closed

  1. Shure SRH940
  2. Sony MDR-1R
  3. Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro
  4. Sennheiser Amperior

 

IEM

  1. Sony XBA-3

 

I'll be selling my HE-400 soon in favor of an HE-500 or HD 700. Haven't figured out which one yet. Probably getting rid of the Amperior too. Was a black Friday impulse buy that I'm just not impressed with.

They are incredibly transparent and clear, it's even alot better in this area than $700 open headphones like the Sennheiser HD700 (I don't own this headphone, but I did A/B testing against my Shure SE535). 

 

The fun factor is a personal thing. It sounds very smooth, clear, detailed with a great soundstage. It's better to test it out since I don't know what type of colour you like best. (for example: some like the more flat / neutral sounding westone 4R or the more bassy Shure SE846)

If we were going all the top ones I've heard

 

Audeze LCD X ~ HD800 ~ LCD 3 ~ HE-6

T1 ~ TH900

LCD 2 r2 ~ HE-5LE

TH600

HE-500

 

My personal preferences. The TH600 is about 85% of the TH900 for me, ofc YMMV for different tastes/experiences.

 

The LCD 3/X - HE-6 - 5LE were only brief listens and are only estimations on my part to where they'd stack up for my preferences

 

I only prefer the TH600 to the 500 because my listening is about 30% electronic these days and they get the most usage. The others to me are "technically" better for more styles.

What about the T1 puts it ahead of the HD700 for you?
