do you guys think the th900 will ever drop down in price to somewhere closer to $1000? hahah... i don't think i cld ever justify spending more than that on a pair of headphones :-/

I dont think any headphones justifies these prices.. but the market has it own rules, and this is a niche market so prices will remain high.

the th900 can be found for a lot less than the original mrsp but $1k might be pushing it.

The only similarities are in the bass but the TH900 having more impact or "rumble" as they call it and the bass has a different texture. Both cans are great for bass-heads.

That's pretty close to all the comparisons I could dig up on head-fi. It sounds like the TH900's have everything that I felt was missing with the LCD-2's.

Listening to the TH 900's on the Meier Daccord + Classic :eek: can't believe these are closed. The Meier stack really does pair well with these (as it does with every other HP I own). So smooth, fluid , with a deep, impactful bass & wide soundstage.

Took me over 5 mins to type this, as had to get up & dance a few times.:dt880smile:

Just picked up th900 with the hpa8, sounds brilliant. Certainly lounge, electronic, hip hop and classic le sound incredible. Super low bass which I love, the highs in general quite balanced. This is my first reference experience so don't know how to compare, but happy.

Congratulations! :gs1000smile:

 

I'm sure you will enjoy your gear immensely.

Thanks for that, it was shure 846 that first put that tingle in my spine at the low end, sub woofer in my brain. So the th900 seemed like the logical next step. In ear good for the road but at home, comfort is also key, the 900 sure are those. Cheers.

They did drop from $2k to $1500 (about 3 months after I bought them :confused:).

That price drop was what convinced me to get them :D

 

1k would be an amazing deal IMO. Would make them an absolute must-get headphone.
