great! saves ogodei the trouble of starting his own.
Damn, the TH900 are fabulous. Bass phenoms, listening to bass heavy electronica with these tries to pulverize your skull. And the attack speed -- sweet Jesus. At first, the suddenness of TH900 going from black to peak output honestly made me wince until I got used to it. I don't know if it's this amazing attack speed, or a combination of other factors, but they are super at micro-detail revelation, and really, really, lend that sense of realism to strings, classic synthesizers, kick-drums. pianos. etc.
Reports of V-shaped sound is true. I will need to research the right gear pairing to tame the harsh highs that colors things like female vocals, high-pitched pop, etc. But, it may be that forwardness that gives that sweet-sweet instrument tone.
Ok just a preliminary thoughts to us th900 users concerning it versus ( not that its a competition) hd800S. If you like the fun in music, like that bass slam, like to feel you are live, that fast drive and like efficient cans. Th900 rules, imo. The hd800S has its benefits and compliments th900, balance balance balance. Mid sound stage, very real and neutral or natural whichever suits the metaphor. TH900 is an awesome product im glad i have it.
Cheers might come back after many hours and give any more thoughts, by the way this is through TT comparison.
HD800S is boring, I feel the mids are more distant and less involving than the TH900 on lot of modern music, and certainly less intense and immediate than on the HD800. Listening to live orchestras and female choirs is snore-inducing on the HD800S.
I got to admit its an interesting trade off, i wouldnt quite go to a snore but the th900 certainly is a more entertaining can. For me its like 800S its about balance and yes being that way is not nearly as fun as th900. If I had to pick one can to live with its 900 all the way. Percussion and bass riffs are startling in the 900, mids are a bit more striking. Im giving the S more time as the more I listen I appreciate what this more polite balanced can is trying to do. It also needs a lot of power to scale it properly. But th900 rocks.
One salient addition, the 800S by no means was acquired as to go head to head with 900. I am not looking for more bass, sub base or a wider three D sound stage. Th900 I know has that cornered. I was looking for more balance and studio based sound scape, Im still need alot of brain burn in to get my head wrapped around that. ya its growing on me
