Oh, 400 bucks doesn't sound so bad.
I don't know if there will finally be a true successor of the TH600 finally or not. I mean, the TH600 is almost like a D5000 rebrand. Yeah it has different construction of materials, the drivers a slightly tweaked and they do sound marginally different, but generally the TH600 is/was D5000 in a new uniform. So yeah, that's like how many years now?
Man, the TH900 is still arguably the best closed headphone I've ever heard though. That sweet, sweet, amazing mid-bass. Haven't heard anything on a headphones that has quite match it yet. Some people may still disagree to this day and say that the D5000/TH600 have the same quality in bass though.
Apparently a lot of people found the TH600 a bit hot on the treble. How would you contrast them? Not entirely sure if that's because of poor synergy of their chain, or badly mastered tracks, or the headphone itself, personally I didn't see the problem. Then again, I also used the HD700 for sometime and didn't find any problems with that either, so maybe I unusually treble-tolerant
And I loved the positioning of the TH900 as well, but recently I've been really into the lower tier Fostex custom mods, specifically the ZMF Headphones Vibro (mine is pictured below). I'd even say the ZMF are more "closed" than the TH900 (better sound isolation). But at this price, and with the initial feedback, seems a worthy addition Attached thumbnail(s)
