    Anyone hear the Fostex TH900???

    Anyone have the pleasure of trying the new Fostex TH900 yet?   What is calling the new "King of Headphones", with a $2300 USD price tag to match?     Fostex makes the Denon AH-DXXXX Series headphones, and if you look closely at the headband, you will notice that is in...

    Like SA5000 but better..?

    I've read through some previous but I'm still not sure which direction to go. My experience with the SA5000 is like most others...mixed :)   I tried a pair I was recabling for someone and laughed openly with my GF about how bad they were for $400-500. I sent them back to the owner and...

    Possible to bring mids forward on TH900?

    I own the TH900 and I like them a lot except for the fact the mids are recessed. Is there any kind of configuration that can bring the mids forward?

    Best balanced AMP/DAC+USB to power up Fostex TH900 for desktop usage. (BMC Puredac, RSA Darkstar or something else?)

    Hey guys,   I'm shopping ideas around to get a new amp/dac to power up TH900.

Just wondering what others think out there would be the best for balanced amp/dac with...

    HUGO with FOSTEX TH900/SilverDragon vs. HUGO with McIntosh MHP1000

    Just got the McIntosh yesterday to try and compare with the Fostex.     The HUGO is the fixed variable.  I am trying both with a MacBook Pro running JRiver Version 20.     The Fostex are better looking, to me at least and have a more solid feel but the Mac is much better in isolation and on...

    Design / look of headphones and you

    Inpired by the "Do Grados Look Ugly? Or Do They Look Cool?" thread:   Does the design of headphones influence your buying decisions?       I am affected by the design. If they look ugly to me I have a hard time liking them. I do appreciate the sound for itself, but most probably...

    Paradox Slants as EndGame HP over everything else

    The biggest thing is that there is a starving student version for $550 plus around $15 shipping. For the price, it's an amazing deal. After my research I would get it over HifiMan's offerings, Audeze's offerings, Fostex's TH900, and Sennheiser's HD800, due to the sheer fact that for half the...
