    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      Had both.  HE500.  The x00 was fun, certainly a quality phone, and excelled in particular genres. felt the 500 was a better all rounder, was generally better in a lot of regards and was close enough to giving me what the x00 was better at that i would just take the 500 over it.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      i thought they were ok with metal.  however thats primarily where i felt the recession of the mids, so the vocals felt more distant, and the guitars were a little more laid back.  That was an issue for me, but it might depend on the genre of metal, or preference on how you like your presentation.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Thanks. At some point id consider upgrading the amp, just not soon. If it can scrape by for now thats fine. And i wouldve thought streaming music would be the bigger bottleneck

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I've got a magni/modi schiit 2 stack, and use spotify as a source.  that setup sounds fine through my HE500, but would that be enough to utilize an hd800?  Or is the hd800 SO much more revealing and power hungry this wouldnt be a decent enough setup for it?

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    i think you see similar sentiments up and down this site.  everythings "the best" , "perfect", "magical" "the best ive ever heard".  it can be difficult to wade through the hyperbole.  especially when things are the shiny new toys that people are justifying spending their money on.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Thanks for the info. Sounds in the ballpark im looking for. And honestly i think i prefer the grado soundstage which was very close so this may be a real winner for me. Fingers crossed they reopen the drop tomorrow:) Brw, how is the detail compared to the x1? I dont think the x1s were overly...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Im so confused on these. Half the people say the bass is great and the treble is forward, and half say its muddled and dark! Essentially im looking for something that splits the difference between my x1 and my grado 325. Overall i prefer the x1 signature, which i believe is similar to the x00...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    im assuming this one is opening back up on monday.  they already are trying to reschedule with the factory to increase the capacity.  so it's either going to be monday or soon thereafter if they can't move things around.  and if i had to guess, this ones going to be redropped quite a bit.
