Fostex TH600 Dynamic Headphones - Page 140

post #2086 of 3313

One of the my favorite albums I've heard on the TH600 is Rainmaker by Thriftworks, highly recommended for chill/dubby kind of stuff.

 

 

The TH600 certainly has some good air to it compared to other EDM oriented cans like the Sig DJ or DX1000.

 

A super trippy album for those out there who love dark psy electronic stuff would be Xenomorphs Qlippoth

 

 

Sorry for quality :(

Where exactly do these cans bleed sound....between earpads + cups out side rim or another part ?

Around the side of the earcup there is a gap with some points that leak sound.

Yeah, I saw that and guessed so.

With a WA7 most of my treble problems have totally gone away, they hit slightly less in the bass but the treble certainly is sweeter. The mids have gone up a touch and the dry feeling from before is alleviated. They sound better overall but not like twice as good or anything despite the Woos cost, however I appreciate the simplicity and usability of the woo combo.

I tried pairing TH600 with WA7 on Mook festival, I don't know for me it made the treble a bit too bright for my liking. IMHO pairing it with WA6 / WA6 SE gives better result overall.. 

 

But that's just my opinion..

Electro Harmonics gold pin or Sovtek tubes? I've got Sovteks.

 

The WA7 just basically brings the mids up and a tiny tiny loss of lower bass rumble/impact compared to my Audio GD. The mids being brought a bit more in line with the treble has done the wonder for me - as I don't need to listen higher/harder for the midrange. No longer do I get the dry sense to it.

 

Soundstage seems a bit more 3d overall.

Im looking a getting a HP-A4 in future. Seems to be a good synergy (check a4 thread). Anyone tried it? Much cheaper and more compact than a wa7 though very different presentation on the tubes I'm sure, I want both!

Does the wa7 have a similar effect with the sigdj? (mids etc)

Thiftworks is great!

 

The likes of EOTO & Om Unit are somewhat similar (maybe bit darker) and also awesome on the TH600s

Also the Mala in Cuba album is a regular bassheavy monster

I'm a Om Unit fan but I had not heard of EOTO yet - how could I not!!! Time to check out.

I've gotten the same results using an old Rudistor NX-02. Just seemed to even things out a bit.

This thread is booming now.:) Its also hard to find them discounted anymore. 

I just purchased a pair finally right before something happened that would have stopped me from buying them.

 

For some reason I am only kind of excited to hear them. I also hope the pair well with a fiio e12 for walking around the home.

I quite like the combination with the HP-P1 as a transportable solution, while I consider the combination with the V1 a bit too bassy. Still waiting for a new Lightning cable for my A200p, which could be another option for driving the TH600.

I was convinced the Red Alpha Dogs resembled the Th900's, and now I see the Black Alpha Dog's look like the TH600's.

Awesome cans, and the TH600's were my first FOSTEX headcan experience, and a very pleasant one at that.
Here's a few shots of my own TH600's I'd like to share on this thread...
