I was not charged $1 when registering at tensu.com (as of 3/27/2013 - 11:00AM EST).
EDIT: Forgot to thank you for the incredible reviews between the two sets of headphones! Really informative and you had a great voice when it came to expressing your thoughts. After reading (and watching *lol*) I ordered a pair of ATH-AD900X's mainly because I loved the AD700's and the AD900X's do look like they are built better.
I hope I made the right choice as it would probably be a pain to return them, I hope the build quality makes up for its flaws.
EDIT 2: Oh what the hell I might as well try and cancel these, I'm sure the MA900's are a worthy upgrade to my AD700's.
Haha, well whatever you do let us know what you think of the sound and thanks!
Thanks! I actually try to clarify the audio buzzwords for everyone just because too often on Head Fi you see people disagreeing, not because they have a different idea of the sound, but because the language they are using is not consistent. The phrase "soundstage" means a lot of things to a lot of people, calling a headphone "dark" means a lot of things to a lot of people. It's better to give references to basi sounds and concepts that everyone understands - for instance talking about what part of people's voices is emphasised or talking about how particular instruments sound. That kind of thing is common ground for everyone.
I'll try to give that song a listen later but I can say that I really don't find the MA900 fatiguing and I listen to them for ages playing music or, lately, Starcraft!
I wouldn't want the treble any sharper on the MA900 just because its a good level for long term use, but I would like more extension on the treble I guess. But yes I think they tuned it safe for long periods of time.
