Agree, the TH-600 is not the best for all genres or music

It depends on the genre, for classical, acoustic jazz and blues the DT-990 is much better than the TH-600 IMO.

Admittedly, when I said " smoked " I may have been over stepping, I simply prefer the Lawton modded TH 600 signature to that of the Beyerdynamic dt990 premium. Now that being said the DT990 are a very fine headphone indeed and I will pull from storage and give another listen then post results.

Just changed my th600 earpad. A bit smoother in highs i woulf say. Not night and day but a slight. Sounds good tho!

it's from Aliexpress, damn long of waiting/shipping time. It's cheap too, below $20. Quality is good enough for the price.

 

The shape is like TH X00 line up

Pulled a trigger recently on these two bad boys (Fostex TH600 and thx00 Purple Hearts) and after listening to them for a couple of weeks (1 week to TH600) still can't tell which one I prefer more. Will have to spend more time with them as I'm planning on keeping only one.

I have a TH600, got a TH-X00, sent the TH-X00 packing since the ear pads and me don't agree :p, they just don't fit right and I think due to this the TH-X00 was a bit distorted with some tracks and the highs were harsh at times.

Which version of thx00 did you have?

So far, I think I like th600 better for its soundstage and airiness, however I like the low end of Purple Hearts better. And thx00 look just gorgeous.

Had the mahogany, and I agree that the sound stage and air on the TH600 was better than the TH-X00 but the bass was better on the TH-X00 when I used the TH-600 pads on them, it was the only way I could really listen, the stock pads of the TH-X00 were too small and never gave a good seal for me, and I agree the mahogany wood does look better as does the purpleheart.

I agree on the pads - the th600's are much roomier and spacious. Can't complain on thx00's though, since I found them comfortable enough.

consider yourself lucky that the pads of the TH-X00 work for you :beerchug:, for me they are so uncomfortable that even my RS2e and other Grado like builds with G pads (donut size pads) are more comfortable, they look like this:

they are next to my EL8 for size comparison.

Edit: the above doesn't mean anything if you don't have a EL8 so these might be a better:

Anyone here interested in a spare set of TH600 cups that were painted white by Peterek? Letting them go for pretty cheap.

Could you please let me know which one has the best trebles out of the 2? I used to have the 600 and I'm considering the Purplehearts. Thank you
