This TH-X00 contains the 1.5T drivers from the TH-900. Considering that the baffle is identical to the TH-900, this is basically a TH-900 with X00 pads and cups, complete with an SMC detachable cable mod (which was performed with no modification of the earcups/housing). Essentially, you have the warmer TH-X00 tonality with the significantly improved resolution and dynamics of the TH-900.

The headphones, including pads, are in excellent condition, with no chips anywhere. Headband always protected with a wool cover. Included is the stock cable reterminated to use the SMC connection, as well as a 5-foot braided copper cable with a Neutrik ¼ inch plug. The original box will be included.

Asking $575 shipped

do you have any pictures of the 1.5t drivers installed on the headphones?

Yes.

You can see the larger magnet vs the TH-X00 driver, and you can see the "548843" number on there confirming that it's a TH-900 driver (part number is 14715548843). For reference, TH-X00 drivers have the number 606005, and have a smaller magnet. Otherwise, if you have an X00 around, you can compare the sensitivity - the TH900 needs significantly less power. You can also open up the ear cups and check directly.

I previously owned a Fostex TH900 and with X00 pads, it sounded pretty much like this unit for sale.

I'll definitely be watching these. Would have picked them up but purchased way too many headphones this month. GLWS
