    I know, right? It sound super crazy, but my friends was showing me the screen shot that the headphone have arrive the local sorting facilities in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong last night.

    Got mine. They sound good. Will listen more later and maybe comment further.

    TL;DR - sound good.

    The midrange of the TH-X00 is not recessed in my opinion, at least when paired with the sources I listen to most of the time.

    I want to see more photos of the wood grain variations!!
  8. YtseJamer

    Here's a quick impression from yesterday's meet on the THX00, for those wondering my rig is:
    Foobar on laptop > Gustard U12 > Schiit Bifrost Multibit > Schiit Sys preamp > Project Horizon 3 with Russian Gold Grid tube > A) THX00 or B) Denon D5000

    There should be more impressions soon and even pics from Miceblue. Sometimes he does a meet tour in video with binaural sound, not sure if that holds true for this one.
    ibs63, Hansotek and Hi-Fi EDU like this.

    Nice impressions.  I can't wait to hear what these sound like when I flip on the hardware bass boost on my amp!

    I was kidding. Eugene is two hours the other way. LOL.

    Maybe I can pick him up.

    Glad you're excited to hear the TH-X00! Based on what you've said, the tuning should be right up your alley. 
    That said, your posts exhibits a misconception I'd like to address. 
    "Massdrop released a different flavor without asking people"
    The "without asking people" part is incorrect. The TH-X00's tuning was almost exclusively decided by Audiophile community members. Did we do a public Q/A session? Was there a thread where we took suggestions from the community at-large? Nope, we decided on a different strategy for involving the community. 
    We approached a select few members of the Audiophile community and worked with them, discussing the project and what we might be able to achieve in collaboration with Fostex. Once prototypes arrived, all of these community members had a chance to hear the product and give feedback that could be incorporated into the final tuning. 
    Why go this approach? Because each of the community members we approached was willing to dedicate considerable time and thought to their feedback. Works better than having a "suggestions" thread with drive-by suggestions from uninvested enthusiasts. 
    Only downside to this process is it's not as public, and we end up in situations like this where people don't understand how the community was involved. We're working on some tools to make this more obvious, but in the meantime, figured it was worth responding with a quick explanation.

    What amp are you currently using and what's the bass boost step like? I love me a good analog bass boost!
