took delivery of the th900 today. was bummed that the box was a bit beaten up but no signs of damage to the cans that I could see. they're beautiful cans - no surprises there.
maybe i wasn't in the right head space but can't say i was all that impressed with the sound. didn't have the clarity i was expecting from what I've seen here and the highs sounded a bit raw. and it felt like something was missing which i put down to the mids.
anyways, left them running for an hour and came back for another try. maybe i'd gotten out of my funk coz they sounded rich and organic - not hyper-detailed in a forced "hi fi" kinda way. and then there's the bass. finally a can that comes close to doing deep speaker -like bass - oh man. and they're so comfortable. feels like i could wear them for hours. so yeah - things are looking up.
Don't worry I haven't gotten a pair of new headphones I didn't want to send back. Mine took a good 2 weeks to sound 100%. My pair started with zero mids. You'll love them shortly; don't sweat it.
