Which of the TH-X00 variants has the best sub-bass? How do they stack up to the TH-600 and TH-900? I'm a bass head and deep bass is really important to me in a headphone. Can anyone recommend which headphone has the best bass? Big soundstage and detail are also a big plus.

I own both thx00 Purple hearts and th600. I'm still debating which one to keep, however at this point I think th600 is better. It has better soundstage over PH. In terms of the bass to my ears they are almost identical with th600 having a little more quantity. Sub-bass on both is very good. What I like the most on both of them is that I don't need to crank the volume a lot to get all the details and good punch - they are excellent at moderate volume level and sound very clean. imho.

Purpleheart has the most bump in low and deepest low-end roll-off of all 3 cups. https://youtu.be/ufAkP2Njmvs Ebony vs th600; ebony has more midrange but th600 reached lower

Crapy comparing to what? Thx00? They are from the same Fostex family.
That's a matter of personal preference. So far I like th600 better than Purple Hearts due to their more open sound. Both are very good headphones and are very similar.

Yup, the same fostex variant. However I noticed highly uncontrolled mid to high, thats what I felt when I owned one. Back then I had lcd2, stax lambda, hd650, and such.
And surprisingly, thx00 doesnt sound as harsh. Hmm

th-600 is smoother than the teaks and any th-x00 variant. They have to be burned in, and they have to have soft pads.

The EB has the deepest sub-bass response out of any of the Massdrop variants. The PH has the most bass but also the most sub-bass roll-off. The MH is closer to the EB but doesn't have quite the deep extension that the EB has. So, with the Massdrop Fostex variants its about quality vs quantity. You might get both by going with the TH-600 or 610, but you're also paying a lot more, I think. Also, for someone who thinks the PH has too much bass relative to the mids and treble (and leans more towards the E-MU Teak profile), I think the EB has more than enough bass for me.
