The track seems to really emphasis the strengths of TH600 - like it was the very best of the paring. The LCD3's were very good but it didn't best the TH600 on this track but with Van Morrison it's not even close... The LCD3 runs away with it hands down.
I guess it is like a very good bottle of wine pairing very will with the dish. May not be the best bottle of wine but for some reason it pairs well in just about every aspect IMO
Thanks for your impressions jjshin!
Sounds like the TH600s are a winner in many aspects for EDM and hopefully electronic music with low bass. Its amazing that track was such a perfect match for them too haha!
I don't want overwhelming bass (as you say the TH900 and others can be), just deep extension, present and clear. Especially over long listening sessions the TH900 might be most 'fun' but may also be fatiguing. I can't justify 2x the price if they aren't as versatile. Then again lots of treble can be fatiguing too... so I can see the potential benefits of a warmer amp
Also thanks jibzilla for your thoughts. I would like to try Mad Dogs but the fact that the bass isn't as refined or deep has me worried.
I'm not a fan of any AKG headphones I've heard either, from memory they all tended to be a bit bright and lacking in bass quantity. A bit of a generalisation though I know. I wouldn't mind hearing some Annies (or the new 712s)
I don't mind a bit of V-shape; most EDM is not focussed on mids - the melody and synths, mid bass are important but not as crucial to monitor as vocals and instruments in the midrange might be with other genres. No headphone is ever going to be 'flat' either I guess...
For DJing (which I don't do too often anymore), you want good isolation and I'm very happy with my Beyer DT1350s. Best I've come had or across for club/noisy party DJing. But you might be referring to studio DJ mixing, in which case yes open ones would do the job
