Well, you can believe what you will. It's loud but not crazy loud, you can clearly hear the point when the bass starts to loose control and gets loose and boomy. Like I said before, it happens more in games than music. Explosions, loud gunfire etc will case the hard bass to sound like the driver is working to hard.

 

 

What amp do you have paired with the TH900?

it sounds more like an amp issue

I would have previously agreed with TheGovernment, but when I upgraded my DAC I have found that I prefer lower listening levels. With the increased level of detail and better imaging the overall sound is much more balanced and I don't feel the increased volume brings more to the presentation. YMMV.

could be the amp or maybe the can's faulty

lol, you guys are funny, Im not dissing the phones, I clearly really like them, its nothing to do with my setup, Ive got another friend with a set and his are the exact same on either of our rigs.

 

Amps are Burson 160D, Pathos -  Aurium and the oppo HA-1. Ive already gotten a few pm from other that have the exact same experience, its all good, its not a huge deal.

To me, terms like "loose" and "boomy" are all relative (within reasonable limits, of course). Someone's "bloaty" might sound just right to me. Often, I've heard flagship headphones with supposedly "well controlled" bass and found them just plain ballsless.

It's all a matter of perspective. TheGovernment's opinion holds just as much weight as mine or anyone else's. I mean, c'mon. It's not like he's boring us with insipid measurements or graphs, is he?

TheGovernment: No, I understand you, just that I would like to know which amp MIGHT not be a good pairing with these TH900's.

 

One person (thank you!) already said on this thread that the Centrance Hifi-M8 made the TH900 sound pretty bad. I would like to avoid those costly situations, since I live outside the U.S. and selling an "unusable" (to me) amp would be a real hassle, if not impossible.

@thegovernment - wouldn't worry me what you thought of the th900 - just couldn't relate to your post based on my experience with this can. hope you sort the problem out whatever it is.

I couldn't listen to d2000 after I got my d7000 smily_headphones1.gif

My experience was similar to yours although I wouldn't say I couldn't listen to the D2000 anymore, it wasn't that dramatic however I thought the D7000 was noticeably better.

Thanks zolkis, I also contacted Fostex.jp and they said the same thing so that's what I'll do.....

 

Here's a pic of the pads

I believe that would be Major Music. They're good to deal with.

Anyone else have any experience with Centrance Hi-Fi M8 and the TH-900's ? As this is the setup I have been thinking of getting... and since I am also one of those that happen to live outside the US it is somewhat of a hassle to sell / trade either the Hi-Fi M8 or the TH-900's ...

IMO the oppo is good enough that I will he selling my burson in the next week or so. Im very happy with it.
All my amps sound good with the 900s, the oppo IMO is the best.

Do you get that same synergy as Burson ? Bass and soundstage on burson is remarkable. :)
