You're right. Some notes on the TH600:
- I'm getting used to it already although the mids sound thinner than all my other cans.
- The treble seem to extend further than all my other cans.
- It sounds clearer than all my other cans.
- The bass extends futher than all my other cans.
- They sound like they are made for EDM music which is 80% of what I listen to so I'm liking it.
- I thought they'd be more comfortable, the pads don't hold my head the way I expected similar feeling to my HE500s but they aren't unconfortable.
- Looks like I might sell off my Mad Dogs after all.
- They sound like the an un-dark version of the Mad Dogs with the treble and bass extending further.
- The cable is not really flimsy like others have described and is quite thick and not really prone to kinking
- They are quite light (I'm used to my orthos)
- Wow, the bass. I've never heard bass like this before. Bass that is deep, extended and does not eat up into the mids at all. It'll take some getting used to.
I'm glad you are starting to warm up to them! They are really good headphones for the price IMO. Couple things:
-Mids will stay "thinner" in comparison to what you have mentioned (HD600, Mad Dog, HE-500)
-They do well with faster pace music like EDM, Electronic, Synth, some say even metal (don't listen to too much so I wouldn't know). I would say they are pretty well-rounded especially for modern genres of music.
-The pads will start to contour to your head as they become more plush with your body oil. I will say that they don't clamp very hard, especially compared to the HE-500 and Mad Dog. For most, this is a positive, hence all the positive feedback regarding comfort.
-The cable seems to be a hit or miss depending on the person. The cable won't kink below the y-splitter, but above it is prone too because the braid inside the cotton jacket is quite tight. Plus the y-splitter is not well done (IMO).
