Pulled the trigger on these a little over a week ago. Initial impressions out of the box were so so, even though I have been craving some TH-900 love for quite a while.
They just kind of underwhelmed me unfortunately. Fast forward one week later and I absolutely adore them. The resolution, PRaT and all that good stuff has fallen into place. The Sig Pros are feeling a tad lonely now, not to mention the HD-800 lol.
One concern I do have is hardware related ( I know its been discussed countless times in this thread ).
It appears that my right cup hanger suffers from play or movement if a slight pressure is applied.
Audiowood posted a while back on a proper technique into removing the cup to gain access to the tiny under hinge screw to tighten http://www.head-fi.org/t/595683/fostex-th900-impressions-discussion-thread/2790#post_9006193. Followed his directions to a tee, however what I noticed was that the screw was tight to begin with and required no further adjustment.
I am wondering how many TH-900 owners out there are living with the same issue. I realize the TH-900 seems like the type of hp you definitely need to baby. I recall AnakChans hanger failure some time ago, would have thought that almost two years Fostex would have cured the whole D5000 / D7000 loose screw, fragile cup assembly thing http://www.head-fi.org/t/595683/fostex-th900-impressions-discussion-thread/2640#post_8955811
Not to mention a few owners where cups would just fall off out of the blue.
Please chime in with your thoughts / experiences. Just live with it? what ye thinks?
