The bass on my pair is off the chain nice the overall sound is so dynamic. I read through Tylls review of them but on my pair even the low hitting low los are defined tight textured to crazy levels with intoxicating rumble. All my other cans are crying foul right about now..

 

If you guys are looking for a sound signature you can latch onto use these as a goal. One of these days. You must hear the X1 fully burned in..I am finally getting to enjoy these things and I have to say I am just completely blown away by their absolutely wonderful sound. I know it is easy and natural to get used to a phone but I never really got used to their sound because school time. I would periodically listen in on them here and there but I don't recall these cans sounds this good from open box.  My S2 share similarities to the X1 but it is the X1 that has an added dimension. The scope of sound is grander on the X1 bass is fuller with more authority,  sound a touch sweeter with that nasty large sized stage of the cans. I have wider sounding cans the AD900X but the use of that stage is what is killer on the X1s .. I am imagining just how much one would have to spend to reproduce this sound with speakers..It is amazing to me that we can get this type of sound in a sub $300 headphone..

And you told me to get the AD900X O.o

Your telling me your regretting getting them? I never regretted getting a pair of AD900Xs. Ya I got another open can but it don't take away from the brilliance that is the AD900X. There will always be better..I have my AD900X right next to my X1. Both of them have a different sound from the other. That is what makes this hobby so awesome. I don't know if this hobby would be as fun if everything sounded the same..You happen to have one of ATs finest sounding cans for the money.  For you I would have still recommended the AD900X as you needed to hear them for your preferences. Wait till you hear those after proper burn. Then you can tell me if I was wrong..

Cameron, if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen lol!

 

What I am trying to say is, be happy with the AD900X. They are awesome. There will always be something else that is enticing. Always. Get used to it, and enjoy what you have!

Exactly. I can't wait to get the X1 some day. But I love the AD900X's, so there's absolutely nooooo hurry :)

You are correct to a degree Eke. But the Basso's are $65, and the VSD1's were $37, and whenever I throw them on even after listening to my 1K's or H200's, I am not repulsed disappointed by them (like I am with other iems), but instead, I am quite surprised by how much I am enjoying them. So to me, that's pretty awesome.

 

Edit: "repulsed" was a bit strong so I edited it. Regardless, I can already foresee the abuse that Sf will be slinging at me lol.

I've been listening to my AD900X together with the Sabre DAC and E12 for a few weeks, and I have to say WOW, this combination really turns the AD900X into a can that has been able to take every kind of music I throw at it! Before I would usually switch to my WS99 for music that benefited from more powerful bass production, but the AD900X has really become my go-to can for just about everything. The E12 with its base boost really does an amazing job filling out its relatively weaker bass. Makes me kinda wonder how this combination compares to the X1...

+1! Yup. I love the ELE DAC + E12 + AD900X, and now that I have the Sabre DAC, the Sabre DAC + E12 + AD900X synergy is just stupid good biggrin.gif

I don't own a E12 triportsad.gif .. Waiting for my X3 is testing me.

Btw Wayne, how much better does your experience with your WS99 get when paired with the C&C BH? I kinda decided that I was basically gonna stay out of the headphone-buying game for a while now that I basically have everything I need now, but it saddens me that my WS99 don't get as much use because of the crazy Sabre/E12/AD900X synergy going on. I can't help but keep staring at the buy screen for a C&C BH... was wondering if you could give me your opinion. (Sorta hoping this doesn't lead me to drop another $100 haha)

Looking forward to your impressions with it!

Btw (as you probably guessed), I bailed on the X3. I need something sooner than later, so I opted to go with the "functionally lacking" but "SQ inspired" Colorfly C3. I'll be pairing it with the C&C BH amp - it will be my portable rig - and from all accounts that combo should work stunningly well with the H-200's (although I think that it will probably work very well with my other iems as well). As for the AD900X's, I will most likely continue to use them with the Sabre Dac + E12. But I'm ok with that :)

 

I'm sure that the X3 will rock for you though!

Yes, the E12+AD900X provides an amazing synergy (whether off of the ele dac or the sabre dac).

 

And yes, the BH+WS99 provides very nice synergy - more exciting to me than the E12+WS99 synergy. The C&C BH brightens up the 99's nicely, and open up their soundstage as well. Having said that, I guess that I am more "mids-oriented", so I am considering getting sucked into the ES700's. But I digress...

 

Basically, I would recommend anyone getting the C&C BH. To me it makes the 99's sound more appealing (especially off of my Clip Zip), so it would probably breath life into the 99s for you as well. Also, the BH is a small, wonderful amp with an 80 hour battery life that makes all of my iems sound better off of the clip zip (and I have even bigger expectations off of the C3). So if you have a portable setup, I'd highly recommend the BH.

Off topic but this movie looks like a modern day Godzilla. My buddy told me to go see this at the movies. Might have to.

 

 

How does this have anything to do with phones. It don't. Lol.

Woah, calm down guys, I was just kidding xD I love my AD900X, there is no way I could be sick of them already, they're so new to me. They blew me away at open box, maybe because these are my first open headphones.

Ya that stage makes you realize how limited in ears are in stage in comparison.  That being said it is crazy how good stage can get for in ears but lets be real they don't have stage like that.

Thanks for your input! Well I don't really have a need for a portable setup but it seems like it would be great for my desktop regardless. I would love for the WS99 to have a larger soundstage. I felt a bit tempted by the ES700  because of its supposedly amazing mids also but I think on-ear headphones are too uncomfortable for long listening sessions. Dsnuts, out of curiosity, what is your preferred setup for listening to the WS99 at home?

 

DAMN that movie almost looks like it could be a live action version of Neon Genesis Evangelion!
