the empyrean lacked the th900's clarity, resolution, impact and sounded veiled in comparison to my ears. the th900 is the more engaging listen imo.
Thank you both! I quite agree, but I couldn't stop myself and bought the Empyreans for they were heavily recommended to me.Radically different sound signatures. Empyrean didn't have anywhere as much subbass & was a much much smoother/warmer sounding headphone.
On the way to find the best (inhouse) portable solution I also got the three players iBasso DX220 MAX, FiiO M15 and Shanling M8 to check for the optimal combination (to my ears). This will be quite some comparision since the competition is against my three pretty different sounding pairs of TH900 (different cables and mods).
