This following situation  has happened with quite a lot of at guest's at my place :

  • I will then go into a short explanation why my HP's require amps & why they will not sound good from an ipod

  • Guest then say's   "Really,  Hmmm.... can I try one

    "
  • I will then always pick TH 900 (with WA22) & always play Hotel California - Hell Freezes Over Live Version

Do you find the TH 900 pairs better with an SS amp or tube amp ? I have the ZD but that's SE and I had hardwired my 900 for balanced

I prefer them on WA22 (with the right tubes) as compared to Meier Classic. They sound amazing on the Meier but the WA22 just expands the sound stage to another level , the Bass has more depth / 3D  & also the Tubes impart some midrange goodness which complements the TH 900 vocals.

I hope it's OK to post this here, the deal is too good to not share.

Fostex TH-900 brand new $1,100 with free shipping

I just ordered mine today!


Very tempting, just wrote them an email, how much the shippingcosts are to the Netherlands.
And if they can lower the price of the parcel to avoid the rats of the tax and import.
Anyone heared them on the Yulong A18 and D18?

I saw this on Ebay as well, from Sonic Sense, and was like damn, that's a good price!
 
Seems like they moved the price back up. It's higher on Ebay now, and your provided link.
 
Anyways if you got them at that price, congrats! Amazing deal. Tell us what you think of them!

New owner here too. I'm using it mainly with Phonitor, and it's really an amazing combo. It's one of those headphones you want to keep forever.

  Does anyone listen to Classical music with these ? Do they work well for that ?


I consider the TH900 more of a all rounder, so if classical is your main genre the TH900 is still very good but headphones like HD800 are better for classical
 
This isn't set in concrete, it's just my view

  anyone has any idea about how to make th900 more stable when you wear them, they kept slipping every time i tilt my head 

I felt the same way when I first got my th900 and I don't know why but overtime they just stopped flopping around. I have 2 notches showing on both sides, maybe play around with yours till you feel they sit right on your head

How long have u used them until they became stable? I just got my delivery last week, only been used for 5 or 6 hours in total, do you think I'll have a long way?

I really can't remember sorry, I've had my TH900s for over a year and half now, but I know it didn't take long.  How many notches do you extend your phones headband?
