Why not? I paid $320 for my HD 650 and I thought that was a good deal. Only $80 more for a TH 900 is amazing.

But make sure it's a good shop though to avoid fake TH 900's.

Wait... It's a TH-X00, misread it tongue.gif Has anyone heard these? Is it still a great deal?

I was gonna say ...

Haven't heard them, but from what I've read I suspect they're about the same as TH-600's, just with different cups and pads (which will of course have an effect on sound). But a tweaked TH-600 for 400 bucks is still a pretty good deal, I guess. And I love the way they look; I think I even like their style better than the TH-900's.

​Has it been discussed whether a new impressions thread will be started for the mk2?  Am burning them in, wanted to post some head to head stuff.

So is it set in stone that the mk2 is nothing more than a mk1 with detachable cables?

​Not to my ears but I'm waiting for some burn in.  I take it that's the scuttlebutt on this thread?

At least that's what one of their reps/dealer told me.

But since the cables in the mk1 are already balanced in their wiring does anyone know there is a change in the cable construction or just putting an XLR on one end and detachable connectors on the other.

 

Not that these are bad upgrades as it would have saved me the trouble of re-terminating my cable but it should mean there is no sonic difference between the models.

Sorry maybe I'm wrong about this. First off are not the th900 I own se unbalanced cables. Even with my mod I stuck with that. I'm not sure if the new xlr cables are balanced or not or if they offer them like hd800s offers both.

There are four wires in the stock cable but what makes them single ended is the fact that the two ground wires are terminated to the same spot/pin in the connector.  In a balanced termination the ground wires are terminated to separate pins.  SE = ground connection shared termination point between L & R.  Balanced = ground wires have a separate L & R termination points.

There's a thread already if I am not mistaken TH-900 Mk II, But if you'd like to make your own impressions thread since you already have them feel free to start one.

...As I was saying, we are all ears for how they sound compared to the current TH-900 Mk I. So please, do let us know.:popcorn:

Yea... looks like it was fair for the guy to ask if there was an impressions thread for the MK2 already, because he didn't want to accidentally make a second one.
