Fostex TH600 Dynamic Headphones - Page 84

Yep, I think that's really possible the reason why there are people think TH900 is too smooth sounding.

 

This also happen when you compare Grados like RS1i and SR325is, some metal lovers will love the 325is more because the "harsher" sounding.

Pop some Senns on and any perception Fostex house sound is too smooth sounding will be cured

what is the best tube amp that have a really nice sparkle with the treble, the tubes are with warm sig right? for me i like the opa627(warm + sparkiling treble) so what is the most similer tube to it? it is for my Fostex TH600(32 ohms).

 

wana try Tube amps VS Opamp my self and make a review, cause so far i didn't see such a topic before that aims for Treble wise setup , someone got to do it people :P

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?

I found that they changed massively after burn in.

yeah TH-900 seems to have a smoothness to it. like D7000, maybe a little less actually, but the sound is more coherent and full with no grain.

There should be a ban on mentioning the TH-900 in the TH-600 thread. Please people, don't tempt me to buy them :-)

I doubt they're a significant improvement, probably more a slightly different flavour. From what I've read the main difference is their smoothness - smoothness isn't good for some types of music.

Also they are almost double the price...

Exactly but they won't offer more than double the sound quality improvement. This is one of the primary things I dislike about this hobby - the disproportionate pricing of equipment. Tbh, flagship prices are a joke. Beyers T1 is probably the only reasonably priced flagship I can think of.

Hifiman is reasonable too.

its nice that the beyerdynamic t1 can be gotten for like 800-900 used as well. thats a steal considering its musicality and its performance, it holds its own against all my other flagships and is generally still my reference headphone.

To me the T1 posed no upgrade in quality compared to the T90 , only a different perspective of less intimate and slightly distant and larger, but treble more pronounced so its more of a sonic preference.
I would assume a similar scenario applies here where a newer unit 600 reaches near a level of a fromer 900 model flagship.

Did some testing today...man am I in love with the TH600. Having never heard the Dx000 series, I can now understand why people love them so much. The 600 or 900 will definitely be my next purchase -- still need to hear the 900 though.

How's the T90? Was disappointed with T70 but keep reading good things about T90 and it sounds like it has decent bass extension and MIDs..I wonder if it'd make a good openback complement to th600? Are they different enough? I do love my beyers..
Still waiting on my th600 from Japan, they were shipped like a week late, on Saturday. Its killing me
