    Nice to see some comparison. The music choices was pretty dull but that really don't matter. At least there wasen't some Diana Krall in that list ;)

    Thanks for your presentation, especially disclosing music. Maybe a competitor to Beyer's T1? I like the pictures of the elusive HP-V1 too!

    Nice review Anakchan. MSRP¥84000 for these. Fostex finally shored up a glaring weakness in their lineup, the mid-upper category. The jump from T50 to TH900 was an Evil Knievel type jump soundwise and pricewise,so these cans are right on time. The TH600 definitely captures the essence of the "Fostex Hi-End Sound". Had a chance to listen to Bjork-Hyperballad( great bass extension ), Massive Attack- Angel ( delivered on that nice earth-shaking low-end rumble during the intro ) Submerse-Tears ( highs were clear without the brightness ). For what they are(not the TH900s), I really enjoyed them. If you're considering the Edition 8s, T1-T5s, ATH woodies(except 3000anv),D7000s, these are definitely worth a look.

    thanks for the impressions. Are the earpads real leather?
    Marburger, Feb 19, 2013
  11. PXSS
    My guess is tat they do not use real leather as TH900 earpads are made of "protein leather", whatever that means...
    PXSS, Feb 19, 2013

    Protein leather is made of eggshell extract. So not completely artificial, but definitely not the skin of an animal.
    FraGGleR, Feb 19, 2013
  13. takato14
    @above And much softer, and breathes easier, and lighter, and doesn't decay, and doesn't kill animals. Protien leather is much better than real or synthetic leather. I wish it was used more often. On-topic: Really excited about the TH-600, just wish it was a little more in my price range...

    Get well soon Anak.....hmmm...my d7000 is in the balance, if a TH-750 surfaced with wooden cups..:P

    Great review anakchan. Have you ever heard the D7000? Keen to know how they compare.

    Did you or Bootsy1 use any other headphone amplifiers than the pictured Fostex HP-P1? I wouldn't be surprised if a [i]well suited[/i] desktop headphone amplifier does a better job. I know by own experience that my Denon AH-D7000 does very well with my Grace Design m903. Others have reported the same with Denon AH-D7000/5000 + Grace Design m903/m902 (see appropriate threads). I wouldn't be surprised if Grace Design m903/2 do well with Fostex TH-x00 as well.

    Your SigPros sounded grainy? just goes to show Ultrasone QA at its best :/ That said; my pair is perfect, no hint of any grain, i used to think they were too sibilant till i found out it was just bad recordings, some reports of them being too forgiving. I auditioned a TH900 a while ago and I found the soundstage to be medium, on par with the SigPro

    They look like they're built like tanks, but I got just a little sticker shock. Sure, it's nothing as big in price as the TH900, but I still feel as if there's a glaring hole in the Fostex lineup between the TRP line and the TH line.

    What is grainy sound? grainy can only be seen, not been heard imo.
    pietcux, Mar 11, 2013
  28. takato14
    @above grainy means rough and unrefined. Grainy midsections are common in most lower end headphones. The T50RP and ATH-M50 are major offenders, the T50RP moreso.

    Nice Review! I am curious about that little tube amp, that WCA7..... can you give a little info on it as well? And what portable are you using with these? :)

    I have the Fostex TH600, Recently bought them at Sonicsense which  has the best pricing I could find.  Your review is SPOT ON !  I absolutely love these headphones.  I have a pair of Magnaplanar speakers, and find that at times when I listen to the same piece, I get that audiophile experience as well from these headphones.
