The proper way to wear them is with the headband pointing down like a stethoscope.

Ahh the Lincoln position, a classic.

If you do that, the Fostex printing will be aligned parallel to the ground. Maybe they designed it like that.

This long cable on the TH900 is great. Nothing like laying in bed in the dark and listening to some tunes :darthsmile:

On the Mojo, I just had to turn the volume pot slightly above 9 o'clock to get all the detail I need to hear. Playing Alan Parsons, I heard instruments that I had not heard with my other cans, even the LCD 2.2.

 

Very very early days but I think I have  found my end-game in dynamic, closed-end HPs. 

Hi,

 

Can you share what/where you did this. If possible please share some pics.

Thanks for the responses gathered about how best to wear the TH-900. Low and centered seems good for imaging and also more comfortable as headphone sits looser on my head (3 notches on each side). Soundstage size is also quite improved, but still lightly closed feeling at times.

I bought these as a curiosity just to compare to my W3000ANV and thought I would quickly sell them, but it's going to take a little bit to find out the winner.  The W3000ANV's ethereal vocals will be hard to beat but it wasn't a quick KO like I had thought going into the battle.

I do notice that I turn up the volume a little bit more with the TH-900 than the W3000ANV's and that's probably related to the discussion a couple pages back.

The TH-900 are also infinitely more comfortable than the W3000ANVs, and come close to the SR-007 as the most comfortable headphones I've worn.

still eyeing the th900 so keep the comparisons coming. how does the treble compare? that's one of the w3000's strengths IMO.

Why is it hard to share a link to a re-cabler? Could be done in the same amount of time as writing this response.

Sorry for the late response; I am traveling and will be back over the weekend. I will send some pictures then. Moon Audio in Cary NC did the recabling. They have the two ends of the cable from the HP ending in an adapter. I then have two separate cables (one SE and the other balanced) connecting (one at a time) to this adapter and the other end connecting to my amp (either Mjolnir for balanced or Soloist for SE).
Hope this helps.

Thanks GG.

There is a search button or even yet just use the forum tool to read one particular member's posts within a thread. Whilst recabling TH900 may be a relative novelty, take the amount of "customs v universal IEM" threads. Touch silly, as if that question has never been asked before(!)

 

Been allowing limited private demo of my TH900 with select heads. Smiling faces. Your HD800, Audeze, HiFiMan, Beyers of this world more often than not get one thing mentioned

Where is the best place to buy them ?
