? My opinion is he should post more helpful and interesting feedback instead of just saying "I didn't like them". Thats my opinion which I am entitled to voice in this thread, just as he is free to write as short and low effort posts as he pleases. Nowhere have I claimed that he is obligated to do anything. If you read my initial reply to you, you'll understand as much. Are you done now?
'he should give better feedback' in your opinion. he is under no obligation to do so in my opinion.

Sad news - the video that lead me (and many others) to purchasing TH900, is now "private":

I guess it was too sexy...

Hopefully, this move will make some wallets safer.

If you want to hear and feel the bass from the TH900 heres a track. This track usually played on floor standing 12 inch woofers , woofers that cost $1,600 each.

I listened to that track and... I expected more. jmills, you alright bro?

Here's some of my subbass favourites for the TH900:

Aliens - Luke Lambert (30 seconds in is when the serious bass delivers)
Breathe Into Me - Marian Hill
7th Heaven - Angelina Jordan

On what system ? I added an amp and boosted the SUB bass.

Sure TH900 got a really nice, deep and punchy bass ("better" than pretty much anything I've heard from headphones). But you obviously can't compare headphone bass to subwoofers

I just put on some new ZMF Ori lambskin pads the other day and they're much more comfortable than the stock pads. Bass seems to extend even deeper while retaining the stock sound. Bigger soundstage/ more "holographic" which I guess is from the fact that the Ori pads are further from your ears than stock. Highly recommend them, if just for the comfort.

True I spent 3,000 USD for two sub woofers for the car.

Ah, I don't use EQ. Listening through my Dangerous Music Source.

I keep seeing good things about the ZMF pads but the only UK retailer has them for £75 for Ori pads and £85 for the Eikon. Can't bring myself to spend that amount on a set of pads.
