Agreed- I still have both...hoping the TH900 will be the one that goes on a fancy pedestal in my livingroom(all the rest are in the closet) :D

SONY MDR XB 800 owners out there? It suffered distortion as it was vibrating my head and muddied up but that was a sample model. The 700 sounded tighter and harder....need opinions

Disagree with the FOSTEX?

I'm gonna need help with the Hi fi low end more than anything as i said..I have only heard a few and just a couple were exceptional/outstanding in the low end. Fostex is my ref point. 
Agreed. The TH-900 are my favorite headphones by far!!!! When you put them on you just get pulled into this world, lush beyond words.

Agree on the Pro900 being better impact.  Of all the Ultrasone cans I've owned or tried (Sig Pro, Sig DJ, Edition 8, Pro900) for me the Pro900 was better than them all in every way.  Ed 8 was equal in comfort but that's it.

 

TH900 and D7000 (Lawton modded) is to me the epitome of what I call "audiophile basshead" cans.  Have them both and they are incredible fed right.   As are the D5000, D2000, TH600 and to me the D600.  The last four I list are just a step below the first two.  All the Denons thump with the right motivation (aka an amp in this parlance and vintage speaker amps specifically to me).

Oh, another suggestion. DON'T put the MDR-XB600 on the list. I listened to them at the same shop I listened to the AH-D600 and they were a messy lump of bass. I was amping with the Apex Glacier too, which is not known to be particularly bassy.

I think we should all agree that a headphone amp is basic to the 1st and 2nd section....no? Some expensive cans need them just to perform to the best level and to throttle your head you need one too.

 

Bassy tuned cans (celebrity endorsed etc) come out of boxes bassy but do not respond to amps as well because they were tuned to already be sloped at the low end. Easy peasy for joe p public using an ipod and their cans....the definition of bassy.

 

 I added the 7 and 5 series so far. I'm gonna hit the hay (Japan time)....my ears are _____ing ringing!! I can hardly hear right now.

Just the 600 of the XB series? I thought they all sounded muddy but they are bassy for sure. I thought the best was the SONY MDR-1RBT MK2 was the best sounding bass overall..   best of the sony I have tried....just my opinion.

Why would you do this to your hearing?

I dunno??

When i was in car audio I could blame it on competitiveness.....now I just wanna shake my jaw and make my eyes water while my skull hummmmmmmzz.

 

I was tired of folks throwing the word "Cannon" at cans only to discover they were not anything like that. It has happened to a lot of us. Others and their interpretations...varies widely depending on who's online. So many threads get hijacked and die. This will not die. It will grow and change and be updated by many authors over time but it's goal of having a comprehensive list of headphones that represent the lower frequency spectrum with varying levels of quality and impact.....it's time has come. Everybody's opinion has value. This list is based on a collection of opinions. I only hope folks do not comment on anything they have not heard.

 

I got a new toy today and it won't distort. It is made from carbon nanotube and hey...it wont distort....not with an e12 amy anyway a first time experience on my chosen slope......go Science!! Goodbye ears...lol.....they'll be fine tomorrow. Any cans to suggest??

It's the only one I've personally tried. I can't speak for the rest of the XB series.

I would say the treble isnt noticeably boosted, but yes the mids are quieter than the treble. The bass is much louder than anything else.

Comparing to an hd600 they have less treble... Less than the dt770s... Not sure if those are good comparisons though lol

Didnt you listen to the signature pros?
They have less bass than the djs.
The pro 900s are supposed to have more. And alot more treble.
post #9733 of 11259

I passed up the pro 900 and got a MD because I was scared of the treble.

 

Same reason i skipped on the th600 and got the pandora. Is the treble on those more than a d2k or around the same?

 

I am thinking the pandora is not basshead but its pretty darn close. 

post #9734 of 11259

The Pro 900 has more treble than the D2000.

The DX000 series from Denon was manufactured by Fostex. I think the TH600 and D2k/D5k share the same driver, but will need someone to confirm. I tested a TH600 recently, sounded VERY similar to the D5K.
