Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread - Page 181

post #2701 of 7949

I'll let the TH900's settle in for a few weeks, and then compare them to the LA7000's

 

I will say, after a quick 5 minute listen between the two, the TH900 is brighter while listening to my Nektar "Journey to the Centre of the Eye" sacd.The LA7000 / TH900  comparison is not universal though , because each pair is tuned differently according to the stated tastes submitted to Mark

The Liquid Fire , stock tubes.I have a quad set of Siemens that I plan on replacing them with one day, but frankly the stocks have yet to reach their full potential, and the amp itself has been on a steep ride upward in the quality of sound.Initially I wasn't that knocked out by the LF,but it seems to have really taken off after around 75 hours

I've been listening to these on the Eddie Current Balancing Act (using PX4's) and it's a terrific pairing.  The Burson Conductor's pretty good too if you want something a bit less nuanced but more immediately engaging (also 1/3rd the price of the ECBA and the DAC I'm using).

I have yet to try them with my Graham Slee Solo SRG II , which is SS.I know my LA7000 sound great with that amp, it seems to add a little more punch, but both amps have their unique qualities

As you can guess, I'm a man of few words at this very moment. Didn't survive a plane trip despite hand-carry.
There is a (technical/design) gap between the red cup and the black Headphone part.
I was checking 2 TH-900 until now and did realise, that the gap is different between left and right side.
Also on your pic, there is a gap. Feedback from other owners would be welcome.

Gap on left side different to right side (between red cup and black unit). (so, you can see the metal inside)

This has been discussed previously here. It's the way the headphone is designed and not a manufacturing flaw. All TH900s have it.

Are you referring to the gap and that there is a silver rim present inside on one side?

post #2711 of 7949
yes
post #2712 of 7949

It's mentioned in the manual at least:

No, I'm afraid I didn't make a note of the time... The OP noticed it on her pair as did other owners. It was established to their satisfaction that it was part of the design rather than a manufacturing defect, and now namaiki has confirmed it for you.

a silver ring indicates RIGHT

on this pic it is on the LEFT

does it mean if the silver ring is located left, it is mounted in a false way?

sliver ring on BOTH SIDES
