I came to this thread after hearing someone want a comparison of the th-600 to the alpha dog. Then I read the th-600 as being a little sharp so I looked here.
I am on the verge of selling all of my equiment in hopes that the th-900 will man handle all of the gripes I have had with the following hp's:
Please tell me if I am misled by thinking that the th-900 wont suffer from these issues:
owned all but the red
hd650 not enough bass extension and a tad too thick but realistic and sweet
modded t50 not enough bass quantity, though I love its smoothness
philips x1 not full sounding in the other ranges besides bass, Though it was close to ideal it is easy to cook and not enough details, comfort spanks the hd650 to me though
he-400 not enough bass,sibilant, sounded metallic. I liked its details, speed, soundstage and instrument separation
sennheiser momentum not enough details and instrument separation but (everything else is PERFECT <--well almost could have tighter bass)
German maestro 8.35d need more bass on some songs, and sounds great for the price but not worth mentioning here
he-500 will not have enough bass and will be too chill
lcd-2 will be close, but the bass of the th900 will spank it as well as the details
lcd-3 a little too pricey and just out of my range. headphone.com has them at 400 dollars more than the th-900
th600 too edgy and might be sibilant and dry sounding in comparison to the th-900 and lcd-2.
alpha dog will probably leave me wanting punch, details and bass
+ the bass, comfort, and looks probably spank the Grado hi ends and the LCD's
Dont care too much for huge sound stages(wider than the hd650 is ideal) etc. just detail, midrange not wanting,i nstrument separation, clarity,speed, dynamics, and BASS.
So Ill buy the TH 900 and downgrade if I dont like it. But I doubt I will. plus I wont need a crazy amp right away.
