If th TH600 is 8-10% less than TH900 in terms of sonic abilities as stated by forum members the the imaging will be excellent with the Bakoon

Is that the HDA-5210 MK3? There's quite a bit of confusion surrounding the Bakoon amps.

Most of the time people refer Bakoon amp to the HDA-5210Mk3 model (For Japan Made)

 

But, actually the SCA-7511Mk3 model will sound better to most of dynamic headphone out there, include the Fostex of course (more refine, cleaner and better imaging, while still remain the full bodied and very smooth treble). But the HDA has much more power though (capable to drive HE6 or Abyss)

Yes Tony it's the HDA-5210 MK3 Japanese original version

MiddleSky "sound better" in what way?

Is this based on extensive listening to both amps? The reason I ask is the HDA-5210 MK3 needs at least 100hrs to open up.

The MiddleSky - sorry disregard my first question "better how"

I like the Japanese version because it has a power supply - I'm over battery powered amps at home just my preference. I thought the difference between the 2 bakoons was not so much resolution detail imaging and more based on sonic signature - however I have never heard the Korean version so I have no idea. The components within the 2 boxes are very similar or appear identical. Again I heard the Korean Bakoon had been tweaked.

I feel bad.

Haven't listened to my other headphones since the arrival of my TH600.

They just sound amazing with EDM, DnB, ambient and chill.

These are the best pair of cans I've heard in its price range.

Have you compared to the HE400 for those genres?

Haha so they've arrived? What amp are you using them with?

They sound great with my Pan Am with Mullard tubes but I'm actually loving them right now with my HiFi-M8 for electronic music.

They're great headphones easily on a par with everything else I've tried in their price bracket. They're the kind of cans that are difficult to take off. I find myself listening into the early hours, telling myself at 2:00am that I'll listen to one more song and then go to bed. At 3:00am I'm still telling myself the same thing.

I can't imagine them sounding any better than they do out of my Conductor...but the Bakoon is next on my list regardless. The only headphone upgrade I'd consider now would be the TH-900. Everything else sounds a little dull compared to Fostex.

They're enjoyable and that's important.

They leave me shaking my head from side to side and tapping my feet.

I just get lost in the music.

Yes, I already compare them side by side for some times. Actually the different is not only in characteristic, but for refinement level. (note: SCA-7511Mk3 is also Bakoon Japan Made)

 

To imagine how the SCA sounds, just plug your headphone to HDA at voltage output. The SCA will have similiar character to "voltage output" of HDA, but with one step better refinement.

 

And for avoid off topic, I just want to say that for some people who fan-boy of metal songs or another aggresive music, they swear that TH600 can suit them better than TH900 as the TH900 will too smooth sounding, and doesn't blown away TH600 in term of technicality. Any of you find the same thing? :biggrin:

I don't have a vast collection of headpones, but since I bought my TH600 I only listened to my UE11 once.

Tried both TH900 and TH600. First tried the TH600 and completely fallen in love with it on first listening. Got the opportunity to try TH900, they sound better in every aspects and notably smoother and more refine than the TH600. Maybe that's why TH900 is "too" smooth and refined for metal songs? 

 

Been listening to my TH600 for almost a month and I love them even more. I don't know if its just me or true but it was a bit prone to sibilance when i first  had them, but now its more controlled (either that or i get used to it). I don't think i gonna buy other headphones except for TH900. 

 

Any idea of how WA7 paired with TH 600 sounds like?
