You will be impressed with the sound, they do female vocals better then anything I own. The 900x is a good HP, the W1000x is in another league, and ascetically and resonance wise , the wood is just awesome. I highly suggest the easy to do Purrin mod for a bit more refinement after you get to know them a bit. I look forward to your feedback.
Thanks fearless xD
Yeah there is RE400/HE6/PRO900 in depth review in my sig and I'd like to add the A900X,W1000X there as well.
I'll swap pads first and then decide if any modding is necessary x)
The only problem with the 900X is that it slides + a slight treble recession in a certain area (the treble peak is tamed impressively with burn in)
From what I've understand the 1000X is a more open,refined and evenly (not necessarily neutral
And the grip is a bit better hopefully xP
It's also my first Woodie and with all the fuss about Woodies I am really curios.
First thing is swapping the stock pads for either the HiFiMAN velour, pleather or 900X stock pleather.
I'll try the 1000X pads too but the general consensus is that they are not very good.
