Just got the TH900 in finally! I don't know about you guys but these don't have as much bass as everyone makes it out to have. Certainly less bassier than JH16FP. Imaging is extremely clear and the headphones sound almost as if they were open back. I hear so much detail.

Not as recessed as they say. Vocals are adequately forward enough for a vocal lover like me. :| It's not in your face, but it's not recessed either. Mids are not "warm" per se but they're not recessed. If anything, the treble is a bit more sparkly but no sibilance so far. I might have to burn in these silver cables before I say anything more.

The TH-900s have more bass and treble energy...a bit "U" shaped, but much better than the D7000s. The W3000s have very seductive mids with a bit of a bass roll-of. Both are the best 2 closed headphones that I've heard. That said, I no longer own the W3000ANVs as I prefer the quicker and more spacious sounding TH-900s.

For me, I no longer own the LCD2 and 3 as I prefer the quicker and more spacious sounding TH-900s. Sounds like a shallow U unless I'm just used to a U signature. :| Nothing remotely close to a V though.

With the GS-XMK2, I get a slightly more spacious sound with my LCD-3s over the TH-900s (and both are pretty darn quick). Finding an amp for them is quite the task (more so than either the LCD-2 or TH-900s).  Agreed, the "U" on the TH-900s is a shallow one and not a "V".  I love my TH-900s as well.

I just didn't think it was worth it to me building an LCD3 rig as I could not afford it so I strayed away. :( 

Weird when the sub bass is massive, the headphone itself starts vibrating lmao.

Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate headphones that can sound really good and not require a lot up front to fully hit their stride. :o The HD800s are amongst the most finicky that way (and the LCD-3s aren't too far off).

I honestly do not want to bother with the LCD-XC. The same yoke and headband style will make it completely unideal for actual portability. The weight will be a bugger too. I bought my TH900 to use walking around, being able to hear my surroundings, maybe attract some attention, and as an alternative to cIEMs because cIEMs are the worst... I am quite interested in the LCDX but I'm tired of Audeze's sound now tbh. $1600 new = too much still. Must wait til second hands come rolling out on FS.

seductive's right. smily_headphones1.gif so the w3000anv's mids are more forward than the th900's?

just got my EF-6 a few hours ago. been listening for a hour orso, and i gotta say, i am extremely impressed with this combination already, what i noticed right away is how clean the sound is... i have never heard anything like it, there is no distortion whatsoever.
