    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    I found out that the former link from BenFpointed to spain. In Germany you get a pair of them vor https://www.amazon.de/Fostex-EX-EP-61-TH610-Almohadillas-repuesto/dp/B01FBZ5C60 I am currently trying to improve the stock version of the TH900s after I listened to other head phones like DT1990...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    Thank you! I did send a PM to BenF with the pix. Yaxi look indeed very similar. It would also fit to the sound comparision. If only there would be any clear sign (except for the unusual inner oval shape and bigger distance to the ear in the back) zolkies mod is right here at page 1.

    Fostex TH900 mods

    I own three pairs of used TH900 ( ...before they were at home and two different work places. Now they are in one place due to for some time permanent home office). Trying to find out which pads are the best to be modified with the mod from zolkies, I found these pades the best sounding ones...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    Are you saying I should try your mod on my (at the moment not used) lambskin pads immediately? Does it match with the your mod from page 4 since lambskin will also change the sound characteristics? I actually love my TH900s so much, I will do everything to make them work for me again by...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    :slight_smile: I am aware of that. This is what I already "achieved" manually via the equalizer settings. First tried to increase the mids. But it was an awful result on the FiiO M15. Reducing highs and bass a bit on the other hand didn't ruin the overall sound. The musicality staid pretty much...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    PS: I am planning to do zolkies mod. I compared TH900 to DT1990 for a while. In the end I do Iike the TH900s still way more, but now I am unhappy with the recessed mids. It is just too recessed. The mids are reproduced way better on the DT1990. But all the rest is better on TH900. Musicality is...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    I own two MK1 and one MK2. I just ordered the materials in order to mod them all. Just not sure I will be able to get the right "wolfelt" in "wit". Contacted the company to see if they are willing to send it to Germany. Why would MK1 be a different mod than MK2? Are they not build the same...

    FiiO X7 | DXD | DSD | 384K/64B | ESS9018+ Android | WiFi | Bluetooth | 4 AMP modules | Balanced Out |

    I am using 4 :) X7 I units at different working locations and on the way (and an X7 II at home). And I can tell you that it is worth having the X7 I s. Actually since I drive them with AM3 each, without direct comparision I could not tell a sound difference to X7 II. Bought them all in very good...

    Hello, I run (at three living/working locations) three different sets of X7 + AM3A. All balanced. No hiss in any set. Guess there is something wrong in your set. Most likely in your AM3A.

    Sold - AKG K500 - vintage headphone gem, balanced 2,5mm TRRS plug

    For sale is a AKG K500 headphone that I used with my X7 AM3. Very nice and fully working condition. Modified it myself using K701 replacement cable and Sennheiser TRRS plug. The often lose rubber bands to keep them tight to your head have been replace by a different attachment (see pictures)...

    Any electronic parts shop like https://www.conrad.com/ will have these little screw drivers. Also I guess optricians should have them.

    I bought used ones for around $700. Yes, still pretty expensive, but for a headphone that really does the magic like I have never heared before on other ones, I had to buy them. My before beloved AKG K400 EPs also do the magic (and are WAY cheaper) but are just not als detailed and clear as the...

    Since I am here after some absence ... I can only encourage all X7 users (1st with AM3 or 2nd) to try out Fostex TH900 directly connected to the X7. I am so addicted to the sound, that I cannot live without it any more. Bought three (used) pairs of TH900 in order to have them ready everywhere I...

    When do the sd cards apear to be damaged? When you turned on the player, after charging, in the middle of music? I have 5 FiiO X7s (one of them 2nd Gen) in daily use. Started using them in april 2017. My two were damaged immediately after changing a lot of music while the cards were inside. That...

    I also had the feeling that it ruined two of my microSD-cards. They were always damaged right after I changed music over the cable while the SD-cards where inside. But I love this player so much that I can live with a simple workaround: Take the SD-card out and exchange the music via an...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    lucky you. I don't have this kind of service anywhere around. Do it yourself or forget the idea ... Could you please post a link, where they offer that. Shipping them through Europe is not that expensive and at least tax free.
