Maybe treble was a little more hot and maybe a little less air but the earholes on the 02's are still pretty big. I think the earholes are even bigger than the lcd's.

 

My reason for changing the pads was more for comfort and fit than sound. The super light clamp and huge earholes on the 600 made it to the point where it was hard for me to get a good seal on the headphones clampiest setting zero notches. The 600's kept felling like they were going to fall off my head especially with the 600's fairly heavy cable and I was always adjusting them. With the alpha and angle I got a tighter clamp and 2 notches but the treble got noticeably hot and with the alpha's small ear hole the air noticeably less. With the 02 pads I got 1 notch and sound wise very little difference than stock. To each his/her own though.

 

I really wish J$ would come back. His denon pads were a little less angled and thick than the angle pads. Softer padding as well and half the price of 02's. Maybe we can give him some peer pressure.:veryevil: 

 

I agree here. I think a lot of the effect of different pads is actually the result of individual ear shape and positioning on the head. The actual message of my former post is that, in my case, changing earpads really affect the sound of the headphone . That is why it is worthwhile to experiment with different pads...

My goodness I'm absolutely loving these headphones!!! Everything is palpable!! Music really has soul and comes to life!! I have never heard drums like this before. So detailed and full of texture! Im just in awe!!! But with all this amazingly impactful low end, the mids and highs still shine through brilliantly. Wow, just WOW! 

 

 

For those who have bought new, how has you guys experience been with break in SQ changes?

It's a brilliant headphone and oh so much fun. Comfort is an added bonus. In my experience, there is no significant change to SQ which is a good thing.

Anyone have any comparisons running the Burson Soloist versus the Soloist SL on the TH900s? I'm using the Lyr currently and feel like it's a little too hot for these cans. I've heard great things about the Soloist w/ these cans but with their low impedance it seems on paper like the SL may be just fine and at a discount of the price?

Well I have had them for a few days now and running them every chance I get. I can swear it sounds like the soundstage has gotten larger after some break-in time. Maybe it's just in my head.

I am running the Soloist and I love it although I have nothing to compare against.

Portable hifi has come a heck of a long way in the last few years. I listen at every possible opportunity (and I know all you guys do too!).
Thanks for all your posts. It's great to know there are other real music lovers out there (and that's what it's all about, after all).
Happy listening...

Have you already tested the  HUGO + TH900 combination, or is it something you will soon ? 

 

I have a TH900 myself and wonder if it will offer a good synergy  with a HUGO.

Well, it turns out I was very wrong when I said I could not be happier. I have the Hugo now and it is simply wonderful. I think I've already gushed a fair bit on the other thread about it so won't repeat. My advice: buy it. I am certain you will be thrilled.

Any issues with the step volume knob? What gain setting do u run the 900s thru?

The stepped attenuator is a bit of an annoyance but I wouldn't let it put you off the Soloist because it's a great amp for the Fostex.

I've just ordered the TH-900 from TTVJ. Hard to resist at $1349 :-)

OMG listened to some 80s J-pop on the Th900, sounded like crap on T1, a900xltd, but sounded ridiculously good on Th900. There's something special about it
