    Holy crap. I think you are probably an even bigger fan of TH900 than me. Bravo mate.

    And which one is the winner?

    Mmm stock TH900 is my all around fav. TH900 with expensive ($1300 usd) does great with good quality recordings. 9200 Denon is nice for less constant sub woofer pounding, slightly more mid bass and mids. Treble not as extended but its present.

    I have th900 and i am using it with/without Sonarworks
    Funny, i prefer it without Sonarworks
    But K812 is better for me with Sonarworks.

    Can anyone recommend me a replacement cable?
    I'm looking for something under $500, but more along the lines of under $300 ideally.
    I'm using the Fostex TR-X00 by the way, but I think the jacks are similar to the TH-900.

    Depends on where you are in the world? How long are you willing to wait? How much snake oil do you usually like to ingest?

    Jokes aside, I've noticed a difference in cable material (Cu vs CuAg blend vs pure Ag) but beyond that I've not noticed that a $65 cable from Amazon sound much different than the various custom cables you can order. I have some PlusSound stuff from their Black Friday sale - mostly because I wanted specific cables that tightened up my portable solution.

    What is the difference you hear in those materials?

    [Not trying to derail the thread into cables, just curious about what you've noticed.]

    For my ears I like Copper-Silver blends. Pure silver cables were a bit shrill on the top end, pure copper cables were a little "dull". I know it's not much of a reference but if you actually hear them I think it'll immediately make sense.

    Just swapped my earpads after four or so years of owning my TH900s. Wow. I knew the old ones were in pretty nasty condition, but comparing them to new ones really shows the difference. They feel like new headphones again.

    The only thing I dont like abt the TH900 is the earpads. It is very comfortable, but deteriorates way too fast.

    Well if one wants soft its soft or one can get one slightly less soft and last slightly longer.
