And here i was had my heart set on those FXZs but now i don't even know anymore. triportsad.gif Great stuff Danny keep them "hypes" i mean impressions coming, really diggin' them. tongue_smile.gif

A900X came out last year with a new improved dampening system using Aluminum cups. It is the closed version of the 900X series.. More bass with a very nice AT house tuning. Fairly wide stage and detailed sound with a solid bass end to compliment the sound. The pads are pleather and are angled as is the AD900X.

 

This is the cushion type pads for the AD900X. With a cloth cover that is not irritating like velours. So super comfy. Like pillow type comfy. A900X is not even close to the comfort level of these. That is the one strike against them. I didn't have issues but many guys on the A900X thread was having comfort issues.

 

There will be none on the AD900X..

Don't be sorry.  You ought to read what I just wrote at (or to) Dsnuts.  Please, keep me updated and answer my questions.  With your help I should soon find out if these are the right upgrade to what I have now.  And here I go with my next question.

 

Are these better than the HE-400 for EDM music?

....You guys will never believe what you can get for this cash. The sound quality is super quality. It has a sound to it that is just shocking.. Ericp. Man if you heard what these sound like.. I am gonna cut to the chase. These are the best sounding cans I have ever heard in my life.  That A900X for the cost is nice but a bit more gets you this.. It is a wonderful sounding can like you guys would not believe..Any live unplugged album will sound live. As Danny puts it. I likes this description.

 

I know all you guys that read this have followed some whacky cheapo stuff. I am telling every single one of you guys. Get them with my highest recommendation for anything I have ever recommended here at Headfi....

HA, HA, HA.  You post impressions like this one, every other month.....and I have no reason not to believe you every time!  So, if you get me hyped up on these and I get them, I will be sad to lift up my eyes and realize that the discovery train left me behind and very quickly got to a new paradise that is the best ever and much better than the place where I got off.  HA, HA.  Maybe I should just get them all to keep this from happening to me.

 

Are these ATH headphones so good that it is highly unlikely that they will be bested by the next discovery?  Convince me.  I want to be convinced, if that is the case.  HA, HA.

If I had the headphones Danny has I could have answered your question. The only Open bassy one I have is the Fischer FA-011..These are good cans but is easily out classed by the AD900X.

HA, HA.  The very same thing happened to me.  I am glad I did not get off the train at the FXZ200 station.  But, I had my doubts about those.  Something never clicked into place.  Gut feeling?  Maybe.

And the ATH-AD900X train is leaving the station..............hype train that is!

There is one thing that I know for sure and I posted it before.  Over the ear headphones will not sound right if they are closed.  It is impossible to take all the cave-like (boxy) sound from them.  Also, I do not buy into the argument about the impossibility of having big bass with open headphones.  It should be done and it can be done.  Are these IT?  I am a basshead of the xtreme kind.  But, if bass impact is right there in the "awesome layer" and there is no cave-like sound and there is no muddiness (mud),  I might be happy with these ATHs even if they do not reach the xtreme level that I want.

haha tell that to cute and his modded S500s. The man is my inspiration for not caving in for much more $$$ headphones. If he buckles and sells his S500s for these ATHs hoho. GG!!! atsmile.gif

 

Yeppp Alberto, i believe open cans can have the big bass and slam of closed cans as well. The tech is there it seems. Would not be basshead levels but will more than make a basshead happy is what i am looking for as well.

 

edit: that was why those open somics seems so promising for cheap. haha But Ds is gonna probably flame my @ss for bringing those cheapos up in light of these godly ATHs. LoL Flame suit ON!

That is OK.  You are still gonna help everyone quite a bid in drawing a picture of these ATHs SQ.  You have listened to enough headphones to be qualified to help.  The thing to be careful with, is not omitting weaknesses just because the enjoyment of a given pair of headphones/IEMs is great.  Being too romantic about a new toy is what causes the hype/FOTM effect.  It is not good for that to happen.  So, being objective while having fun is the right combination of attributes to be a good guide for others in their search for the right ones; yea, the right ones!

The bass is more closer to a neutral level on the AD900X. It does have I would guess to be around 3-4db increase in bass but the sub bass is awesome. It does hit them low notes. Has a overall balance to it that I find intoxicating..The A900X closed cans has the bigger punch fuller bass end and for a closed can has a real nice clean sound to them as well. But these open cans do the one thing they were made for which is give an outstanding sound stage. Just amazing,.

That is exactly what I thought about the Somics!  When the big bass and the grill get together we are in for a bass treat with all the other good stuff that non-bassy and open headphones have, as well.  That is the best of all worlds.  You have to let some sound get out of the phones when they are bassy.  Otherwise you will get mud all over the place and boxy sound on top of that.  IEMs do better at this than closed cans.  But, they have the disadvantage of lesser sound impact because they are smaller.

 

Don't get me hyped up (and you can't).  Just convince me.  If there are reasons to be a believer in these ATHs I will get convinced, then.

.......somehow i already knew you were onto those somics as well. haha The bass seems real promising from others' impressions. But still cheapos like that i am kinda turned off to nowadays cuz as my superluxes have taught me what "premium" truly feels like LMAO.

Which is the better sounding overall? FXZ200 or AD900X?
