This must sound very stupid but what is the difference in sound of the massdrop fostex TR-X00 vs the fostex th-900
Not stupid at all.
The TH900 has a more powerful driver (1.5 T vs. 1 T magnetic flux density), it is the flagship whereas the TR are the same design as the Foster OEM variants (E-Mu etc). Basically the TR is a modified TH-610.
Soundwise, the different TR wood variants have slightly different character (Ebony neutral, Purpleheart v shaped, Mahogony splits the difference). I only have direct experience with the TR Ebony for comparison with my TH900. The TH900 has a more pronounced V response, it has noticeably more bass, but it is also brighter and has a dip ~500 Hz. The Biodynamic drivers are good enough that they all respond well to EQing, but the extra horsepower in the 900 makes it a particularly good candidate, but also one that can requires some tonal correction for neutral sound.
