May I ask how you identified this frequency? Please don't post a graph from some website. Measuring headphones is extremely difficult and the results at the frequency extremes are typically discounted in their entirety.

Can't say I'd call the A900x very warm and laid back, either.

Without EQ, its pretty good for all genre's, given that the song doesn't emphasize 9-10kHz, otherwise prepare for some ear bleed. With Accudio-like EQ, it feels like a veil has been removed from your ears, practically a must for lower treble reliant genre's such as modern rock.

There really isn't much sonic information at 9-10K. The final shimmer of a cymbal (not the strike or its direct effect) and room ambiance. Still not sure what you're talking about.

@ShafferWell my fiio E07k boosts the bass in practically everything which sounds great on the A900x. But I mean I basically agree with the goldenears graphs, I suppose "warm" is the wrong word to use, but rather "dark", it is dark in many regards other than the rolled off sub-bass and the mid-treble spike bringing it to life.

 

On the 8-10k spike, you made me doubt my ears so I went to a sound wave generator, and the "problem" is mostly at 10k which is definitely boosted. Again this is to add shimmer but for songs that emphasize or have sibilance in this range, I immediately have to turn EQ on.

I had purchased a900x 1yr ago with my existing used(2nd hand) ad900, send them to AT Singapore for servicing (to replace ad900's worn out earpads and wing pads) and to ask their technicians to tighten up the wing pad spring tension on the 2 headphones. I also purchased hifiman velour earpads while waiting for the 2cans to return.

I must say, it's a 1 month torture without having my favorite headphones to game/listen with.

I might have to send these back all the weigh of the headphones is sitting on my ears 30mins in it's not painful or uncomfortable yet but already I had to adjust it 3 times on the plus side absolutely no pressure on top of my head. Oh well i'll just give them a bit more time of use to see how things work out.

Did you rubber band underneath the wings?

No but i'll give that a try thanks when I find some.

 

So after a hour of listening mostly on ps4 playing b4 and listening to music I'm ok with the sound found it to be very detail and easy to drive at low vol which like.

 

Comfort i'm still unsure about having spent an hour of using them I did not find it painful perhaps a slight discomfort on my right ear not sure if its touching the driver but I would've appreciated deeper ear pads they do isolate well the build quality is nice although the wings are a bit flimsy. Still on the fence about sending them back but i'll give the rubber band mod a try might also give those shure pads a try if I keep them.

the rubber band trick helps enormously ... I can wear mine fine without but I have a large rubber band so it kind of just enough. 

You will have to fine the right size rubber band that makes it comfortable for you.

Thanks joey99 i'll see if I can find an assortment of different sizes. But I honestly don't think the rubber band alone would make much of a difference this has to do with the size of the pads there just to small for my ears. I also don't think those shure1540 pads that you have on your A900x will work for me I currently have the 840 pads on my t50rp and i'm also experiencing the same type of discomfort with those.

post #684 of 684

good luck ... but I can see a problem if they just don't fit your ears .. the shure 1540 pad's inner hole is smaller but still my ears don't touch anything.

I had that itchy feeling when I had the shure 940 when my ear just touches the inside and it can be very irritating.
