This is more crazy talk.  You must be kidding, right?

Im finding the 900s get overdriven very easily and its worth a try to mod them, since the denon mod was so successful.

Can you post the diy package when you get it? If you don't mind?

I don't really like the angle pads (reason I sold audeze).
If that $139 is just the form and pads then I can just probably do it myself.

Let me know! Thanks in adv.

Look at this beauty.
I like th900 red cups but I prefer this wood finish.

My local importer said they can order the pads from Fostex, and quite reasonably priced. So try with your local dealer or importer.

My D2000 Cocobolo Rosewood cups...................and yet I'd never touch the Fostex cups.  Though if you/I did we could sell them for likely the same amount as the customs would cost.  I've sold D5000 cups for $100 that I had six people lined up to buy - sold them too cheap, obviously.

 

And guys, the Lawton mods on the TH900 are an improvement, believe it or not.

Does anyone NOT feel these are worth the $1200? Is the price fair? Just wondering cause it's really quite high. The TH-600 at $600 is significantly cheaper.

If HD 800 is 1100 $ (a piece of dull headphones), then TH900 should be 2000…

Value is very subjective. Some will say it doesn't sound 2x better than the th600 (whatever that means), while for others a bit more clarity, tighter bass, and beautiful cups are easily worth the added price. You'll need to judge for yourself to justify the value...

I am very happy with my d7000, which is about half the price of the th900. I ordered a pair of th900 so I could see for myself how the two compare.

Well in canada you add another 13% tax. frown.gif

To be honest I think its bit overpriced because of the red urushi cups. But I personally don't care about the red cups.

I bought it because I cannot handle lcdxc. Too heavy for me. And yes I think lcdxc is way over priced imo.

Yea, cause I'm sitting here listening to my D2000, wondering how much better TH-900 could be to cost so much more. I guess it's just diminishing returns, like everyone says. D2000 is excellent. I can't wait to hear kugino's comparison between D7000 and TH-900. 

 

And yes, I'd much prefer to save 100-200 bucks and ditch the fancy red cups. I think that gets us closer to TH-600 then, but then the driver gets less powerful. Also, wooden cups have an effect on sound, as anyone with a Denon will tell you.

I didn't like mine till I bought alpha pads for them. It made a huge difference. The stock pads sucked, much too shallow.
