It's easy to check what price will be with pricejapan, just check Price Quote on item via their site, there will be a few questions and before order pricejapan will show the price... for example, ordering today TH-900 shipped to Russia via EMS paid via PyPal will cost 1621$... in Russia we don't have any additional commissions on customs if overal sum of packages declared cost in a month period is less than 1000 euro, so 1621$ is all I have to pay if I want to get TH-900...

I'll have to hear the th-600 someday. 


I don't have the HE-400, but I can say the TH-600 are more resolving of detail than the maddogs and not by a small margin. The increased bandwidth in bass and treble also make dynamic swings more impressive. I'm burning these in on the Lyr, but I will compare them to my HE-500 on the WA6SE. I bought these to contrast my other phones(mo' bass). They are working well with a wider variety of music than I thought they would.

Can anyone compare these to the D2000?

 

Bass and treble quantity and sibilance?

 

I think D2000 are my favorite headphones but they are a bit too bright and have too much sibilance..

 

They look a lot cheaper from that price japan place... In £££ that is only about £500.

Sadly, the TH-600 on my main rig (solid state: NFB-27 + SA-31) could not stand a chance against the HE-5LE, except in the treble were they easily are the best I heard, period.

 

The planars are so much more defined in the mids, sound more open and organic. They are open, not so nice looking but very comfy (Alpha pads) and cheaper. I'm talking about 5LEs and 4s here.

 

I wish I had a WA7 to bring the mids to a more adequate level but I now sold the TH-600. I had a very short time with them (just bought the HE-6) but the experience was really great! They have a very very enjoyable sound which has a hint of "reference monitor sound" to them that feels great beerchug.gif

 

Highly recommended for those with tube or mid-centric amps!

Your DAC will play a fairly large role if your amp is neutral & transparent as well. A tube DAC would probably work nicely or an analog sounding SS DAC, which I'm using. I have no experience with the NFB-27 but in case others are reading and wondering how the cans will pair with various gear...

The Fostex headphone play very nice with Tube and Hybrid Tube amps. Best I've heard the TH-900 is with the ZDSE. If you have the cash or can find an audition, please do... you won't want to go back.

I think the hd800s are lacking a bit of bass and I'm not a basshead. However if u listen to the bass it is very good and I think it's tight.

Unfortunately, I haven't found those perfect tubes for them yet. It is very possible the LG with the right tubes will surpass what I heard with the ZDSE.

Sorry I made this comment in the wrong forum. But if any of you are interested in how the bass of the hd800s sounds there it is

Ha! Nice recovery ;)

I've been using this headphone about 4 days (30-40 hours of burn in). Pretty much awesome actually, a bit odd to move on from LCD2 due to a bit roll off upper treble on LCD2 to rather peaky treble (due to recording mainly) on this TH600. Bass is a bit loose, the speed is not as fast as LCD2. But the bass texture is awesome although big amount of bass (maybe due to burson HD160ds? I dunno rolleyes.gif). Treble is a bit peaky, but mostly because of bad recording. With good recording, the high is pretty awesome. Resolution is definitely above LCD2 rolleyes.gif.
