My screws are metal. It's actually happened twice since '09, once for each side. Larry HPA graciously reattached the one side while it was in his possession as a loaner.

Yikes! That really sucks. What type of container were you using? I would hope that something like a Pelican would be able to survive anything, especially the overhead compartment.

For my Denons I use:

Since the top doesn't have any padding, I added more foam from pelican cases (bought from bhphotovideo).

 

They travel fine inside... just a tip...

I used that Beyer case with my D7000s and now using it with the TH900s.. seems fine for light travel but since I saw the broken HP pic, I don't think I would take the TH900s very far without something like a Pelican case.

 

I didn't add any foam on the top - thats a good idea, thing is its already pretty snug as it is, guess it would have to be a pretty thin piece.

Hell, I get nervous when my wife carries my TH900s to her desk.
post #1266 of 7949

Yep, took a bit from the bottom of the original foam! LOL But yep, it's pretty snug... but gives me a little piece of mind (even though the D5000 are nowhere near the TH900s...)

Cheers guys. It was my stupidity. I had it in a dedicated mini backpack with just my passport inside. I had to put it in the overhead locker or under the seat of which neither were as safe as if it were in my hands. Should have just took it out & put it around my neck, would have been safer.

Anyhow I brought it back to Perth, Australia for a local head-fi meet to show them what Japan had to offer.

It snapped at the swivel & I think Fostex can repair that easily. But the small scratch on the earcup housing is the one that breaks my heart, I wonder if I can buy a new housing from Fostex. Luckily I met them at the Tokyo Portable Show last Saturday! Just hope they remember me when I'm back in Tokyo at the end of the month.

Meanwhile for the Perth head-fi this Saturday, poor chaps will have to hold the left cup to their ear - not a good representation of the headphones.

What size Pelican cases are u guys using for the Th900, is it the 1520?  Looking for something for the W3000anv.  I have been keeping it in the box it came in because the cups look like, well i wouldn't want to scratch them.  Would that fit it?  They are kind of bulky with the wire hoops.

 

Oh and yes bummer on the phones, hopefully they can fix em up.  I'd be a wreck.

See Audiowood's post here for pictures of his TH900 in the case and Ahzari's follow up on the linky to the case here.

 

Seeing the price from Ahzari's link, I think to replace my scratched cup will cost more than that :-( - so that kinda case is very worth it. Only thing I'd have to worry is weight on flight transport. I wasn't just carrying audio gear for the Perth Head-fiers but also astrophotography equipment (my other hobby).

haha besides the weight I think the pelican case is going to look intimidating to the security check... rolleyes.gif

Just wondering if it will hold the W3000, that looks like a kinda tight fit.

Interesting.

The best square wave response of all dynamic headphones. Besides this, similar to the D7000.

post #1275 of 7949

Just curious. What does that awesome square wave tell us?
