When I get home I will submit a photo to clarify.


Just now tried a bit harder, the cover was off :D  Now I just need to make up my mind and cut the beautiful cable ...

Thanks goes out to all who replied to my "walking" post earlier!

 

As a result of your comment's I'm going to hold off on the TH-900 for now and buy headphones that are more suited for using outdoors.  I REALLY appreciate your candid and honest views because it saved me some disappointment later on.  Once I'm ready to pick up a second set of headphones I'll re-visit the TH900.

If the cover is off why not just unsolder the cable from the connector instead of cutting it?

Because I want to cut it short, probably around 1.3-1.5m.

For me, I have a section curled up and tied with a velcro strap. I wouldn't want to cut the cable unless I ever considered going balanced - not sure what the benefit is for doing that.

Hi everyone, my first post here. :-)

 

I'll just jump straight to the point. Would the TH900 make a better all-rounder headphone than the HD800?

I have both, to be honest I prefer HD800 because it's more neutral.

If you like/liked Denon sound signature and you want more bass then TH900 is for you.

 

There is few important thing that you need to consider.

1. colored headphone or mass bass/treble headphone will make your ears tired.

2. hd800 complete setup will cost you more than $5500, ($1500 HD800, DAC $1500, AMP $2500)

 

I can only listen to TH900 at most an hour or two. HD800 I can wear all day.

But TH900 is really fun headphone.

 

I watch or listen movies/youtube/mp3 etc with HD800 due to larger sound stage than TH900.

 

The best answer ;) is to get both :beerchug:

And being portable you can then carry your complète set/up during a WK or around the house :-)

Welcome to Head-Fi; keep a good grip on your wallet.

 

I own both of these, and I'm not sure I'd be happy with either of them as my only pair of headphones, but, by a slight margin, I would say that the TH900 would be the better all-rounder of the two.  But it would depend on the type(s) of music you listen to.

I did the same w mine. It's just sometimes I feel it's troublesome bring the whole thing around the house (together w my Ham901/802). Anyway, I think I'd just keep like this for now. It'd be a big shame on me if I cut such a beautiful cable.

That's ok. Actually the jack is very nicely made, inside and out. Don't think I can do any better job on it anyway smily_headphones1.gif Sometimes I feel so fortunately to have such a pair of beautiful (looking and sounding) headphones. They work well w pretty much anything I hook up with.

I own both and a few more 😄. IMO, the TH 900. I am a rock-genre only person and the 900 does it all.

Had the HD800, twice actually. Sold them in favor of TH900. I use TH900 for pretty much everything if it's not too hot at home or if we have aircon on. They are just so easy to work with, and sound great with any of these: 802/901/Herus/HP-A4/HP-A8 or just the iPad Air. With HD800, I'm more or less restricted to the desktop setup, which I really don't have the luxury nowadays (got two schooling kids at home). 

 

HD800s sound more natural, and they are more comfortable (TH900s are super comfortable, but HD800s are better in this regard). They do need some proper setup to drive properly, otherwise the sound can be a bit thin/lean. I'd get them back when the kids grow up a bit, probably another 5-6 years.
