I might have to swing by Rocky Mountain Audio Fest this year to check these out (it's a half hour drive). I presume these will make an appearance.

Interesting double layer grill design. Not sure I like the looks but can't wait to give these a listen!

I was thinking of getting the 900mk2 in the near future, but I'll have to wait and see how this 909 shakes out. Maybe it's not an upgrade, just a different model as it might be semi open.

The pdf file you can find when following the link in the first post states the TH-909 is an open back. Though I guess you could call it semi-open. The grill design seems to focus on having a sufficient amount of sound reflection, probably to keep the bass levels up.

To be honest, Th900 weren't really that "closed" to begin with, due to this gap between the cup and the plastic part. Bigger soundstage sounds like an obvious assumption, but I wonder what will happen to the legendary bass?

Heard them at the show today. I think they sounded better than the TH900, sound was nice and smooth. It was plugged into their new A8C (Forgot the name) DAC/Amp. Don't have much other comments since it was extremely noisy there. Didn't ask the price.

The closed-back ones looks much better imo :frowning2:
