I find the influx of TH-600s in the FS to be quite interesting -- in the past two weeks there have been at least 7 units being offloaded with unknown rationale.:happy_face1:

There was a recent sale and so people prob bought them to try out. I however missed that sale and am selling mine because I have the he560 in mind since I have no open backs. The th600 at these prices you are seeing on the FS thread makes it one of the best bargains I have seen since I have been here. It will also disappear so people shouldn't hesitate or expect lower.

Every other headphone I've listened to I find some fault with or get sick of. Not these.

So perfect for my listening prefs. Even just trying them straight out of Macbook Pro Retina 2013 now no DAC/amp and they still sound fantastic, just a little less bass quality/quantity and 'weight' than I'm used to. But the sense of space they convey placing instruments around you is just amazing.

I was listening to my M100s today at work and every time I put them on they sounded muffled, congested and too up front. A wall of sound. For that reason (wanting a sense of space, more clarity and better dynamics), I've recently ordered a pair of Signature DJs. Need the isolation otherwise I'd probably have just taken my TH600s to work. Can't wait til the SigDJs arrive to compare these 3 'phones and I'll definitely be getting rid of the M100s regardless I think. They've never done it for me since I got them I've always wanted more clarity, the TH600s have just spoiled everything else :P Ah the comfort too...

 

Ps. great mix and other fantastic mixes by this DJ on soundcloud if you like downtempo, IDM and glitch type stuff:

This one is a fav too:

Nice to hear your side of it. Looking forward to how the Sig DJ compares to your ears. Do let us know ^^

post #2152 of 3313

If your problem is with the soundstage of other bassy 'phones, then you might be in trouble with the Sig DJ as the soundstage is rather ordinary despite the good imaging - though for the sound quality + isolation they are hard to beat. Anyway, I'll be interested to see your impressions and whether or not we feel the same way about them.

post #2153 of 3313

Yeah, I don't expect them to sound like open headphones like the TH600s do (despite being kind of closed and not leaking tooo much).

I can appreciate a closed headphone with a narrow soundstage, I still like my DT1350s - they have clarity/detail, lots of sub bass, great mids, and not-too-harsh highs. And they isolate really really well. They have their uses. But the M100 doesn't isolate so well, so you have to really crank up the volume to block out office music and noise (and for DJing when I've tried to use them, they're useless for that, don't know how they got so many big DJ endorsements). And then they just sound like a wall of sound that mushes all frequencies together (OK I'm exaggerating).

Neither of these are comfy though, so hoping the SDJs are comfy enough, isolate well and have everything I'm after, and by all accounts they do. I like S-Logic too from what I remember of the Pro900s; if they didn't have such crazy treble I may have kept them. Everyone seems to say the SDJs are a way way better version of those, so can't really go wrong. Looking forward to it. Only thing I'm worried about is that I might want after some Signature Pros as well :P

Agree with this. I own both pandora and TH600. both are great headphones but honestly the pandora is getting more listening time compared to TH600 right now.

Has anyone had a full Lawton Audio Mod on this headphone? If so can I get an impression? I have no doubt I will be in love with the look and sound of the headphone, but I decided to keep the stock ear pads. 

post #2156 of 3313

That's some stupidly cheap TH600s in the FS. :tongue_smile:

post #2157 of 3313

I've been giving my new TH600s a good listening to this weekend, and I must say so far I'm impressed.  This is my highest up the food chain headphones to date...

For me the TH-600 bests the previously owned D5000 for listening to electronic music but annoyingly so, I find the Fostex sometimes overpowering in the low end. Isn't no one experiencing the lows reverberations buzzing around the head when listening to bass heavy (electronic) music? All I hear is a frikkin factory! When the mids and highs come in though it gets bearable and thankfully many times enjoyable. How does the Pandora handle that? Does it have a faster decay for example? I like the tightness of the TH-600 but to overcome the reverbs I would trade it for a liiittle looser/leaner sig.

Th600 has tighter bass from memory and the pandora bass is less weighty but more punchy. It has very forward mids in comparison.

Wish I had em both together...could be wrong.
post #2160 of 3313

I see. Less weighty is good. And the reverbs that I spoke about. Does it ring a bell? Could be just my ears.
