the FX500 is the best of them.
not that the 500 is perfect but the 710 is over sensitive and as a result rather flabby and uncontrolled. the 900 is just so brutal and aggressive, overwhelming bass, savage highs, no mids. an extremely dynamic powerful sound which so far has never failed to give me headache every time i listen to it. the 710 has big bass, and biggish treble. mids are so so, not cool and dry like the 751 or liquid and smooth either, like a muddy grey brown; nothing very distinct and they suffer for it. the 500 i was surprised i liked it, very abundant treble but really very well controlled so it doesnt ravage the ears, none of the hard edged ferocity of the 900. still very abundant though. the mids were there, a little recessed but nothing terrible, rather cool and dry which helps them remain clear but mids arent what you bought these for. (well ovor the other two you may well have.) the bass on these surprised me, i expected a ton of it but no, thankfully. whats there is really really good, the best of the 3. it has great depth and power in the lowest end but much less midbass creating a sub woofer like effect, rumble without dominating further up.
oh all have crappy cables, the 900 is the best but they are all designed to be used by the lollipop people. denon gives you an extension cable which then makes them long enough to plug them in at home and still be used while crossing the country.
