I was under the impression that it wouldn't cost more than the HE6...and if it did, it be more like a LCD 3 in price. That said, I don't know if I'm ready to spend THAT much money on a headphone. The Alpha Primes are the most expensive headphone I've bought (though, I've tried out others.)

There's been talk of pricing anywhere from $2k to $6k (for a special limited edition).  Right now, we just don't know.  But if it's priced at the LCD-3 level or below, they will sell a LOT of them, no matter what they look like.

If they're around the LCD-3 price range I'll be selling a bunch of stuff to get myself a set, no question.

I may just save money every month until I can get them in 6 months. Honestly, I'd rather wait a couple months for the issues to be ironed out.

No release date at this point anyways, so start saving your pennies now!  lol

 

Honestly, if I did consider the HE-1000, I'd have to listen to the Stax and such also before buying.  Similar price range, potentially.

After I saw what happens when an electrostatic driver malfunctions, I don't think I'll ever be comfortable owning one of those headphones.

Has anyone used the tritton 720+ decoder box or does use it over astro? I read the review on here but I cant make up my mind because I hear there is a ton of hissing.. Why must there always be hissing in these things. I thought wired headsets shouldnt have a hiss..

I just received my AKG KXX and i really liking them, but they need some good amplification, so im search for a good SS amp for them, specially because i need another gain, my 5.1 setup needs like 10 times less gain, so a separate amp with its own volume/gain will help me keep both setups in same levels on the PC.  So if anyone has a good suggestion for a SS amp for the KXX, please let me know.

An O2 or Magni 2 will work for you.

Pretty much any of the ones listed in the amp section of the guide.

Just get the X1. You're not going to find open headphones with bass that strong, X2 was already very good in bass for an open headphone. If you want more bass, give up going with open headphones and choose from the million of closed headphones that do bass like nobody's business.

Bluntly speaking, because I tire of beating around the bush with things like this.

GET A CLOSED HEADPHONE.''

I say this, because I like my bass too. I nreally enjoy the low, never overwhelming bass on the Custom One Pro (with 2nd and 3rd slider positions). It's a reminder that open headphones just won't do bass quite like a closed headphone.

Makes me wanna hunt for a D7000 again. As well as trying it with the Shure 1540 pads. I swear, if the TH900 was under 1K, I'd impulse buy.


In fact, I may take up Philip's offer for a refund and risk the TH600. Of course, that means dealing with the horrible customer service.

Have you tried Velour pads with the Custom One Pros? would these fit on them? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005OM06RG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
