Absolutely, the TH900 is said by many to be best sounding closed-back HP on the market today closely followed by W3000ANV. The sound signature of the D7000 and TH900 is similar in the way as soon as you hear both you know they are closely related, however you soon realise that TH900 is the big brother of the 2 with its tighter beeper bass, and with its more forward clearer midrange, overall it has more refined detailed sound.
Before you decide on buying new HPs, If you get a chance to audition the TH900s you should, considering you already know the D7000s
Interesting, I have to agree with TH900s being a bit treble hot, the funny thing is I did not feel this way "At All" when I had the E1 muses edition, in fact I would say the pairing had a very smooth top-end....... However, now with the Femto in my chain the TH900s top-end sounds quite aggressive which is the only gripe I've had with the femto, so maybe its what you pair with rather than the HPs themselves
I strongly disagree with the lack of midbass punch, I find the midbass/midrange to be by far its strongest point using both E1 and femto. If you head over to the TH900 thread you will read loads of posts with this point of view
Do you know if your th900s had the original pads? because same people who have experimented with aftermarket pads say they change the signature quite significantly
I can't wait to purchase them next month.
I am using the Philips Fidelio X1 after owning the D7000. The Philips Fidelio X1 are unbelievably good. They have the perfect sound signature in which I crave. They remind me a bit of the D7000 as far as bass goes, but Fidelio has more bass. The bass is never over powering though, everything is very detailed and balanced. Philips has created something special here.
But I miss the comfort of the D7000. Once, you put the D7000 on...it's hard to find another headphone more comfortable. I hear the TH900 is about the same level of comfort.
I got rid of my T90 and HE-500 fast :). I preferred the Fidelio over both them :). It's not always about neutrality and flat sound. I like a bit of an excitement and musicality. Denon's had that and so does Fidelio.
Thanks a lot for you input. I will be purchasing the TH900 most likely in November :).
