Interesting impressions here so far, particularly from Muppetface
I kind of like the idea that the straddle the line between reference and fun, perhaps more so than the th900?
I prefer the all black appearance over the th900 also.
I'm wondering if they'd be anywhere close to 'flat' FR but still have the controlled low end extension required for using to write music. It sounds like they might.
Obviously studio monitors are far superior in that regard but then you have to deal with the room characteristics and dampening... so I'm always looking for 'phones that might do well for monitoring.
I've been enjoying using my HE400s for this recently, which while far from flat, don't have any glaring holes, are very detailed and have that bass extension required for making bass
I thought I might be about to purchase the t50rp Mad Dogs but maybe I'm better off saving pennies for these attractive looking ninja cans...
ONLY PROBLEM is they are $1300 in Australia from addictedtoaudio and not even available yet. I thought they were going to be more like $900 based on the yen price? Over inflation....
How much are they going for elsewhere?
EDIT: Looks like might be able to buy from Japan directly via this site http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/reckb/item/fostex-th600/ $840+shipping. Almost $500 global-local AU price discrepancy.. WTF!?
