Hey guys, I'd like to point out what might be an issue with my TH900. I believe this issue had already been addressed in this thread a long time ago, but somehow I was never able to make things clear. It has something to with the rotating the angles of the TH900. The rotating axis of the left and right cups are not symmetrical, instead they are "parallel". Most headphones that have rotating cups have symmetrical rotation angles, so I'm not sure if mine is a faulty unit, or if that's how TH900's are normally made. To be exact, when looking the TH900 from the back side (so that I can see the letters L and R in left and right section, respectively), the left cup rotates 30 degress outward - that is, toward the posterior side - while the right cup rotates 30 degress inward - toward the anterior side. Thus the rotating axes are parallel. I hope you understand what I mean.
Anyway, I contacted the local distributor for Fostex TH900, and they claim that it is normal. But I'm not sure if they fully understood my point on this. On the other hand, when I contacted Fostex directly, they appear to be confused - maybe they can't fully understand my English?
At any rate, how are your Fostex TH900's? Do the cups rotate symmetrically, or do they rotate in the same parallel direction like mine does?
