So the price is almost no different than in other countries?

I always thought that Japanese made products in Japan are always cheaper than exported ones.

Well, because the yen got weaker, companies in other countries lowered their prices. Though I've heard official resellers buy them for $900 ea and sell them for a profit. Source: some insider Who knows if true. But it's believable.

Might be the best rudimentary crossover experiment I've encounter on the forum, kudos! 

Hopefully by next quarter we can just strap a Tianhe-2 to our heads. Tired of the puny hardware coming out of these cheapo manufacturers.

Not really. I've already gone out MANY times like that.

and I just came back with that double IEM in the ear. Gotta say, the BA200 cables really do make my ears sore. They're just too freakin heavy for over-the-ear. And they're freakin flat cables. Not sure what to say of that absolutely gigantic Y split.

Yeah... nope they're a 2xBA + 1xBA.

Still, the fit wasn't super comfortable especially for prolonged wear.

The sound balance atm is similar to the ATH-AD1000X though ofc without the feel of that large driver.

Not necessarily but they'll keep the best for themselves.

i.e. for the same price, sell Made in Japan products while everywhere else you can only get Made in China.

There's better "prices" then that :D

Well, about $130 cheaper. For a new one, yes.

They're all kind of low on/out of stock though.

Oh yeah, this is the song they play at Yodobashi Camera in the giant pile of headphone corner. Simply beautiful...
(hah the first comment mentions Yodobashi Akiba also haha)

There wasn't even an anime in that list. The only show I listed I was going to watch is Atsuhime, which is a jidaigeki JDrama. You're probably confused with some other show with a similar sounding name.

You've watched the JJBA series, right? Then if you want, you can reread the first and second parts to see how the anime improved it, or if you want to be ready for the next season, part 3, since part 3 and later won't make any sense since Hirohiko changed the 'mechanics' of the powerups from Ripple to Stands in part 3, and continue to evolve said mechanic up until part 8, the current one. There's only two 9well maybe three) choices: reread the ones adapted, read the one going to be adapted, or skip a few of the modern parts to part 7 because something happened in part 6 to allow part 7 as a jumping in point. But highly unrecommended.

I see. I'll take note of that.

You do not. You think you want one, but its possession won't significantly increase your happiness, whereas saving up the over 1k bucks on things that actually matter will.

Just save it up dude. I personally spent way too much money on headphones, and the solemn reason I do not regret it completely is because I learned my lesson from it. Luxury products like those don't bring as much happiness as they cost.


Unless you're really rich, it's just too expensive. I honestly recommend you not to do it.

Well, different people have different preferences. He might get a lot more enjoyment out of a new piece of audio gear than you. That is possible.
But yes, in the pricerange of the TH-900 the law of deminishing returns hit really hard.


*insert a lot of quotes and replies*

100 posts in 7 hours is a good ratio. I've seen worse.

I'm surprised that, in the tblop list under the H section, the 'ranking' is like that. I didn't expected that fakku to be 2nd and hbrowse to be first, and doujin-moe to be almost last. Also news to me that there's a dedicated H site for futa, and made the list. Hue. :3

Tilpo sounds like Batman with that kind of advice for audio purchases. Only not crime-busting, depressed person dwelling on past events and have a bat fetish, but just as a voice of reason. "He's the sensible man that Head-fi deserves, but not what it needs."

The thing is, you don't. The pleasure is momentary, and after that your enjoyment of the music is not really higher than it was before, while that was actually the solemn reason for buying it in the first place.
Due to various reasons you may feel as if you enjoy it more, but that's just your brain fooling yourself because of things like buyer's regret and your own ego.

Do you honestly believe that a more expensive headphone is going to substantially increase your enjoyment of the music?
Imagine the fun stuff you can do with a thousand bucks. You can buy your friends a drink, go watch a movie with them, have a really good time. In fact, you can do that quite a few time before you're through $1k.

Is that a worse idea than having ever so slightly better audio quality? Think! Don't make the same mistakes I have, or if you have already, realize that they were mistakes!

Everyone value things differently. I prefer spending on things that last, not on drinks and food or trips.
