You have both at the same time so your impressions may be more accurate. The th600 has a more solid bass and I will agree there. I just remember feeling the bass more though the pandora was not as controlled. I was actually underwhelmed by the th600 bass impact when not boosted to be honest. But I had the pandora boosted too and never had the same in the same house.
When my second pair come in then I may correct myself.
Also @Oregonian was quite dumbfounded when I didnt feel the th600 to have enough slam so I could be wrong.
I listen to a few genres but the Fostex is almost exclusively for everything electronic. Mostly non-4/4.
Hey, terminology is a beach man (wouldn't you agree?) but more solid is what comes to my mind too. Interesting that you felt the bass more on the Pandora. I must say the opposite here. The Fostex has it in them to just shake the cups. Or is it that felt to you means that the bass was clearer to hear on the Pandora because of the more balanced signature? Oh, to clarify, I speak about bass here and there but with that I mostly mean basskick(s). Not John Deacon basslines

I'd sooner sell my TH900.
No idea on the highs around 4-6, sorry.
Thanks for that. Makes sense and sounds better than what I wanted to read. It makes me help in the decision to get the mod done and without technicalities: perception of less reverberation equals less reverberation.
