I didn't bring the vioelectric amp with me when I went to the headphone shop I went to so can't say too much about what they acutally sound like. also, I actually forget the model names so you should take a look around. Hope this helps

I found Violectric HPA V100 amp owner forum friend in my country :bigsmile_face: . As far as possible I will try them!

Thanks for help!

any direct comparisons of 900 vs t-1?

post #6048 of 7595

+1 

 

Would love to hear a good review on T1 vs. TH900

post #6049 of 7595

Put T1 the "Search This Thread" function and you'll get 28 pages worth of posts. Many of those will be users quoting users, but I'm sure there's at least a few reviews to be found. All anecdotal and subjective, obviously.

Thank god I went with the TH-900. They rival planar magnetic for detail retrieval. I wonder what the voodoo is with the bio cellulose driver, insane detail retrieval. It's the sound i'm after, being unsettled with samples flying around everywhere.

Bio cellulose driver means paper.
Egg shell leather means vinyl.
Old school.

Good marketing though...(I'm just saying. I love my pair.)

i read an article on headphonia about the th-900 and someone said that the driver in the 900 is the same exact driver in the d7000 just more refined with a stronger magnet, which most definitely isn't paper. 

i'm guessing they are wrong.

How much better is the TH900 v.s. the D7000?  Is it worth it?

 

With that said, how does the Fostex TH900 compare to the Lawton modded LA-D7000? 

 

Also, thinking of selling my Denon D7000's to buy the TH900 for another reason:  they are still in production so parts are more readily available.

Purely my opinion of course.

It's not a true LA (which includes a recable) but I do have a MD-7000 which Lawton himself damped and put his angle pads on, then bought a TH900. The two phones are so close that it's a toss up if the Fostex can is better but I like having both as they both get a lot of head time at two different vintage amp driven listening stations.

Add in my custom cupped D2000 with Lawton damping on the driver that anchors an office system through another vintage amp and the Fostex-built sound signature is well represented in my world.

My opinion is the delta in cost is a personal decision only you can make. I accomplished buying my TH900 by selling a D5000 and Edition 8 and covered the cost. Worth it for my situation.

Oregonian - Thank you very much for your reply.  Appreciated. :)

 

 

Regardless of them being an "all-rounder", what would you guys say these cans' genre strengths are?  Are they good with Jazz?

 

Also, I own a Yulong D100 MKII amp/dac that mates well with my D7000'...I would assume it would mate well with the TH900 as well?

The genre I listen to most is smooth/fusion jazz. They sound great with horns and of course drums/percussion.

Second place is Rush, then Pink Floyd..........and they excel at all of it.

yep they're great with jazz and pretty much any well recorded acoustic stuff.

Yes; I listen to more Jazz than anything else so this was a crucial part of choosing to buy the TH-900s.
