The treble has very impressive resolution and detail as I am now noticing all the staticy treble distortions on some music files that were much less noticeable before...
Compared to my other cans the same distortions were more hidden and I previously thought were just the cans treble, but can now more easily tell its the recordings.

Regardless the music still sounds better because of overall musical presentation is just a constant lively wow factor...

Edit I also noticing the "brain burn" effect as now my audio technica esw11 sounds like too much midrange... Noooo lol

What are your feelings about plugging directly the TH600 into the iBasso DX100 ? Is it interesting or ridiculous ?

I sometimes plug mine into the DX50s and even my Galaxy S4 and its not half bad. They're quite easy to drive

Sometimes I just plug them direct to Sansa Clip+, just for the fun of it.
My missus also plugged them direct to her Kindle HD

MarkL used this stuff in his first version of Lawton mod, but then advised against it. Interesting than Fostex picked that up as a way to dampen TH900.

LOL. Got my fiberloft, opened TH600 ....

 

just to discover this? :eek:

 

 

 

Yep, it's stock configuration on TH600. Damn!

Some rubber taped to the cup.

I am kind of surprised as someone mentioned that they look exactly like D2K inside, which they are clearly not.

Mid production change, or no one really bothered to open them to check?

D2K internals for comparison

I heard about this from nick n.... you might want to look into it.

Twaron Angel Hair special acoustic filler if you are planning on dampening it or anything.

Are you reffering to TH600 which is already dampened with fiberloft or D2K?

This is what Mark Lawton recommended for dampening. Now you owe me ten bucks 'cause TH600 already has fiber inside. LOL :biggrin:
