But your saying the Bass on the RX series is bloated is something I can't agree with. It's there but more so due to it's structure, it's not to much, nor are they completely balanced monitoring headphones. I find the color of the bass to make it fun for me to listen to.

 

And I agree he's had his fair share of audio equipment and I'm sure that the Maxwells are great. I just don't see a point in buying them, I'd rather save up my money for a Grado or something.

I got my RX900's today. What really surprised me is how HUGE these things are. Despite this the fit is perfect, even with my small head. They're also extremely comfortable. The AD700's are too big to even stay on my head and they're almost the same size.

 

I really shouldn't say anything yet about these since I didn't burn them in yet. I did read some posts about how much burn-in helps these. Out of the box vocals sounded like someone was covering the earpad with a thick cloth. Everything was a bit muffled and hard to hear. The bass itself is fine with me. Didn't seem like too much or too little. Based on what i've heard so far I don't think these headphones are for me. The highs are really harsh and a bit annoying to me. My ears were ringing after the first hour. I think I'm just more sensitive to this more then some people. I'll burn them in for a few days and see what changes. I may try the Maxell headphones, but at this point I'm tired of cheap headphones. I've been using my Koss Pro DJ 100 and they're pretty much perfect to me, but maybe too neutral for some people. Maybe i'm just too picky lately. I can't even really get into the M50 much and will probably sell those and get something else. I'd like to find something that's similar to the DT-880, but not quite as bright.

 

I'll burn these in a few days and report back maybe if anything improves and i'm sure it will. I think it's just that the sound signature just isn't my thing.

You could start a thread asking for suggestions. FWIR, I suspect the DT150 would come closer to a less bright DT880 than many other headphones.

The RX900s really are worse than the RX700s, sorry =/ Their pads are much better but, from what I recall, the consensus from something like 80-90 percent of the people who heard both is that the RX700s are substantially better except (and that's a maybe) if you mod them extensively. My RX700s still sound better than several full sized cans I've auditioned. I only heard the RX900 once, but it didn't sound nearly as good as my 700s, which were modded with only the very easy(and pretty essential)filter mod, where you remove the filters. Shame the 900s didn't work out for you
