For this reason, I was ready to take cover after posting my commentsmile.gif

I'll probably buy an Audeze one day , after a model is released that doesn't undergo constant revisions and veiling corrections.

Many avoid buying new car models for this vary reason , it can take a few years to get it right

Has anyone else listened to the Mobile Fidelity, Bob Marley release of Catch a Fire ( the song Concrete Jungle specifically) on the TH900 or for that matter any other headphone?

I was a little disappointed at how badly they handled the bottom end , and this was the first time I have heard any weakness in the TH900.I then switched to my LA7000 , as they are a beast at handling bottom end , only slightly better handling of the song , even at low volume.

Maybe some music just isn't suited to headphones, specifically sub-like bass recordings?

Other than some reggae , my music collection doesn't include much thumping sub bass recordings

If I remember correctly mine took about 4-5 weeks as well to get delivered. I'm sure the wait must be difficult.. Hopefully you'll have it soon.

I will soon join my roommate as a proud owner of a TH900 as well.

I had the pleasure to hear his headphones through my Woo 6SE on a number of occasions.

 

Finally had a moment of weakness when I saw them in-stock for order at one of our local NYC audio/electronics stores.

Although I realize this can very well be considered one of my larger impulse buys, I am nothing but excited to have a TH900 in my collection.

Now it is just a matter of being patient and wondering how long the wait will be until they arrive at my door.

Virtual or real roommate? If real, why not just use his?

Former college roommate for two years.

I tend to simply refer to him as my roommate. He does live just a couple blocks away and he still comes over frequently.

I suppose borrowing wouldn't be out of the question, but the opportunity arose to make a purchase. And to be honest I had been itching to make a headphone purchase.

People getting the TH-900 should wait one more week for listening.
It's worth to burn in the can for one week. Awesome difference!

Mine took 6 weeks total, but it would have been quicker if I hadn't ordered the black top option.

Thanks, I will take that into account. Usually I burn in my cans by listening to them. I know this takes much longer to fully burn them in, but for me it is more fun that way.

No "burn in" for me, straight out of the box I loved the TH900s.
