Mine should be here within the hour! Will compare immediately to the k7XX, THX00, DT770 Pro 250 Ohm.
**Edit** I have the Teak cups FYI
Free flow notes taken: (I have played drums for 17 years thus the drum focus) Crisp detail on the highs, not shrill Interesting, had to turn up amp about another notch and a half compared to THX00 Imaging nice, not HD598 crazy nice, but good Bass is present, tame, very good, not resonant and excessive, tight, warm. Toms (drums) sound fantastic. Vocals are awesome, can make out words in songs better. Hi-hat detail, top notch, very very good, can hear the pressure of the hat change. Treble can get a little to high with horns, ouch, had to turn down. Less resonance on the bass compared to THX00, Sub-bass lower, actually prefer the bass presentation here Mid sound juicy, vocals are sublime Treble can be a little hot still, hopefully that simmers down, the detail is fantastic though
Songs listened to: Between the buried and Me - Node, The Coma Machine Snarky Puppy - Lingus Tori Amos - Hey Jupiter, Past the Mission TesseracT - Dystopia Opeth - Ghost of Perdition

Sounds very good. Sound-stage comparable to the whole TH-00 series with the sub bass of the 600/900 (but tamed), the mid to high bass flat, mids sweet and highs a touch down from what they were in 600/900 but not as rolled off as X00. As a fostex dynamic I'm sure the treble will cool down just a bit from when they are brand new. A very small amount but sounds like it will be perfect.
Already sounds as if it is tons better than the X00. Still waiting on my pair ;-) and from what I can gather these will probably be my primaries for a looong time (I'll do detachable cable mod myself).

Man, man, man, man, man, man, man.
These just keep getting better, this is what I wanted. I love my Fostex but could not get use to the recessed treble with a little too much focus on the lows. I don't know the headphone lingo, but basically on the Fostex I wanted to turn up the mids a bit. Does that sound right?

I don't know I was analyzing your comment. When I hear my own pair (still 3 business days away) I'll be posting back here. But at least to the 600/900 the mids aren't as recessed.

Yes, I take back the mid comment, listening again I now realize I mean the treble. With a treble range of +10 and -10 I would peg these at a +5 treble, there is just better detail in the treble, mids seem almost flat, maybe a notch up. Very interesting in how different they do sound compared to the THX.
