Well, my ad900x's are happily on their way to tenso now :)

The sound of this open headphone is stunning.  The airiness is the best I've heard.  The music surrounds your head, it's fantastic.  I have the HE500/400 sitting here and the Fidelio X1 too and I think these have the best stage of all of them.  

 

I think the best feature about this headphone, besides the stage is that all the ranges are even.  The bass is nice and tight and never spoils any other frequency.  Thankfully the bass is present since everything else I own would be considered to be bass enhanced compared to these.  I love the bass because it's so well controlled.  

 

Vocals sound so good too.  It is forward but not even close to being too forward.  Positioned correctly in my book.  I feel like I am listening to a live recording.  Amazing.  

 

Treble.  This part I was scared of since almost all AT earphones get too sibilant for me.  For instance, the new CKS1000 and CKN50 both I've heard still get somewhat strident but is much better than the older models and I can handle it.  More so on the CKS1000.  Well, these AD900X's don't even come close to sibilance but still keep that AT treble flowing beautifully.  

 

I've heard a lot of gear since I've been on Head-Fi and a piece of gear like this comes my way every once in awhile that just blows me away thankfully to some close friends I've met on here to recommend them to me.  This headphone is a pure bargain for the sound you get.

I won't add anymore to what has already been said about them AD900X but I will just say this:

 

Off all the recommendations of audio gears you have given and I ultimately ended up buying, this has got to be the one I am MOST grateful for !!!

 

Granted not everybody will be getting one as it is not exactly in the cheapo price bracket but for what I've paid and what I'm getting in return, I truely thanks you for mentioning it during our little chat. beerchug.gif

 

.... the problem is that there is now NO GOING BACK ! tongue_smile.gif

 

Danny and Ghost, your posts had nothing to do with pushing me over the edge lol! Dsnuts + the both of you = d a n g e r !!!

I like how you describe the HE500's. Unfortunately, I won't be getting them any time soon (due to price), so the plan is for the ad900x's to tie me over for quite some time. I like how you mention that the AD's aren't as genre specific - that is cool. And I've received enough feedback to be pretty sure that bass will be sufficient for me. So looking forward to these beasts!

I have them on as I type..In a week or two worth of time we should find out if this was somehow all wrong to suggest the AD900X on the discovery thread. I hope the cans live up to that title.  I am as excited for you as you are my friend. I hope your first open can is gonna be all that and bag o tricks for you. So a new rule. You all gotta give us an impression of them when you get them. I think we deserve that..Be it good or bad..

Somehow I don't get the feeling that you are all that worried!

Will do, although most likely only after the 100 hour burn-in. What makes this interesting for me is that the extent of my open-backed experience is 2 minutes at futureshop with the hd-558's. They sounded pretty good to me, so if the ad900x's sound as good (and I am pretty sure that they will), then I think that I'll be a happy camper :)

I forgot that you're getting them as well. Awesome! You will end up making them the best ad900x's on the planet lol!

Awesome Wayne.  The AD's will surprise you me thinks.  Everyone needs a good pair of open headphones that sound this good.  

 

Uh oh, Ds is in the same company as Cleos and Joker.  I bow to you sir.

Cute got my interest with that cable rewire with his claims of warmth and added bass. That sounds like an absolute perfect match for these cans. I tell you what cute. I know your gonna rewire these cans anyway but you will have to keep us updated on that particular cable. I hope you will be able to at least hear them out after burn in so you have a good basis for what the effects of them new cables will bring to the table for this sound..With something like a new cable it wouldn't surprise me if these cans end up being one of the all time greats. No joke. They already sound stupendous so if something like that only refines this sound. Geeze. Sign me up.

Got one on order from cdjapan for around 207$ (250$ shipping).

Hope that AD900x will blow my M50 away. Given the price on amazon to be 2x of M50's, I expect sound quality is also 2x better, lol

Little did you guys know I am actually masquerading as a headfier named Dsnuts. While I am busy at the oval office I like to hear my cans and post here at headfi.

 

By the way Beyonce up front is absolutely Beautiful. Can't let Michelle know that.

Discovered a new feature in my jRiver Media Center 18 (the best media software out there)!  The feature is called 24bit dithering, basically if fills out the bits above 16bit on 16/44 cd.  Instead of truncating the bits above 16, it processes them in a different way.....it smooths out distortion, which results in a warmer sound with a quieter background.  The diferences are subtle, but if your gears are good enough, it squeezes out just that little bit extra refinement in the sound.  If anyone is interested, I can provide a link to an expert explanation from someone who is an "authority" on the subject.  Warning, "this is for those that are serious about music and their playback software".  Usially only us extreme fanantics really give a damn!

 

It is getting harder for me, to get that little bit extra, buy I keep trying!
