highroller, I don't think it's the case here but indeed there are a lot of info you could just have researched or googled.  It would take a few seconds each.  People are always here to help but when seeing very basic questions that you could answer yourself keep coming up, people would think you are pulling their legs too.  Remember that communication goes both ways.

Yeah, I've figured that googling them first would be more appropriate. Thanks.

When I am ready, there's only 1 combo. BH and 009.  I am thinking about getting a WEE and play around with mid level first to make sure I do like the sound before the big investment.

Good choice the 009....me myself am not willing to spend more then 10.000 on a headphone rig yet.
I read from a few people that the only real upgrade stax soundwise over a welldriven lcd3 or he6 is the sr009 with a very expensive amp...so for a premium price!!! And even then its the wellknown stax sound... Some prefer a more warmer headphone like a dynamic or ortho..just like people preferring dynamic speakers over electrostats... But i admit..when i have the chance i want to hear a 009 for a while..to hear if that is also my utimate phone...for some the lcd3 or he6 is all they dreamt of...no need for more... I know how good a he6 sounds..i had the chance to audition two in adequate configurations..and next year one will be connected to my new balanced amp thats totally built and designed around only one main concept...making a he6 sing...as next year i too will leave this thread and enter the he6 one.. biggrin.gif

If u would sell all ur headphones and amps u would have enough budget to buy that. wink.gif

Quick question to u my dear lady..which headphone u prefer with the gs-x...ur new he6 (i know it doesnt have lots of burn in time) or ur lcd3? Just being curious as i get the idea we have the same kind of preferences in audio... wink.gif

yeah, not sure if i want to do that though

 

especially cause i might want T1, LCD-3, and TH-900 around. i guess i kinda want to keep all my headphones.

 

also gonna get an RS1i again soon. but thinking about, since T1 and LCD-3 already do rock/metal so well.

So he's my question [assumeing I don't have any issues with the treble] how does the HE 500 and HE 5LE compare to the T90? 

post #7888 of 16191
^ curious about this too.

Also He-6 biggrin.gif

Having gone from the HE500 to the T90. 

 
IMO: The T90 has much more treble and detail retrieval.
 
I Truly believe that the T90 is a superior headphone, but less forgiving than the HE500s. If something is poorly recorded you are going to hear it.   

 

 

I would love OP's Thoughts on the T90's. EDIT: I would love to see them ranked in the massive headphone thread.

Yea I figured this much as well, the HE 500 apprently has thicker mids and a more laid back presenatation, and for people who are treble sensitve [which I'm not thankfully] I think the T90 would be the option for me

 
Still I wonder how the HE 5LE compares
