Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread - Page 622

post #9316 of 9325

Never heard the closed LCD..  I like the 3000anv, TH900 and the Denon 7K..   However, I like open headphones better.  

 

So if your a closed headphone person then closed headphones it shall be.  What ever way you go the GS-X mk2 will work very well with any of them.. :biggrin:

ALl this hate for the LCD2 makes me weep. Easily one of the best closed sounding open headphones. Yes, it's not open sounding by any means, but if you listen to it as if it was closed... amazing. Best bass, best mids, non-fatiguing highs.

But it's all about preferences. To each their own.

That's all there is to it. That's the key. Everyone has different listening preferences. It's painful to watch your favorite headphone talked down, but as long as you enjoy listening to them, that's really all that matters.

 

It's like that with everything, some people like x product, others y, and others z. Whether its food, clothes, headphones, jobs, life partners, family members, websites, cars, mattresses, hamburgers, or beverages..... it's always like that.

Maybe all the hate directed to it is because it's an open headphone that sounds more closed than a closed headphone.

maybe we should hate the th900 because it sounds open for a closed headphone wink.gif

That's what happens with all the damping it has. Doesn't stop it from sounding richer, more fluid, and more luscious than many headphones out there. It was considered the best headphone in the world for a while, and for a reason. Believe it or not, there are plenty of people that like an intimate, rich sound. Not everyone wants a vast, open soundstage for all purposes.

the lcd2 was a big deal. tried it a couple of times but the sound and physical weight wasn't for me. can understand why it has its fans tho. kinda like wrapping yourself in a warm blanket of sound.

Can anybody shortly describe the difference of Denon AD-H7100 and Fostex TH-900? Is it wider scene, no bloomy bass? 

 

Im willing to empty my wallet today for last one...

fostex doesn't make cans for denon anymore. the ah-d7000 was made by fostex for denon but not the ad-h7100.

Exactly. Even though I try the D7100 for music from time to time I mostly reserve it for a movie.

I can enjoy it but not straight after listening to a TH-900 anymore, it's simply on another level.

It doesn't sound anything like the older Denons made by Fostex.

It's nicely made and very comfortable though.

On its own it's a nice headphone but has been bashed so hard it's price dropped from around 1200 to about 400 now if I remember well.

Everyone wanted to compare it to it's predecessor, the D7000 which is simply on another level. What Denon was thinking is a mystery ...
