Back in late January when I jumped on the drop I was expecting something of a novelty headphone
Some months later and the truth is a little different . This is a very good headphone . I have a small collection including Senn HD800 , HD650 and HiFi Man HE500 . This TH-X00 fits in nicely .
Running directly from an Ibasso DX80 I find the sound quite neutral and well balanced at lower volume levels . Pump up the volume and the bass monster slowly reveals . Scaled up to my Woo Wa7 and Metrum Octave MkII dac combo there is a noticeable tightening and increase in detail particularly in the bass .
Either way I did not find the mid range recessed or the treble too sharp .
Comfort is very good , my larger than average ears slot in easily and the headband sits softly .
I would be happy with the TH-X00 as my only headphone , it is a competent all rounder and great value . Turn up the volume and start a party in your head .
I'm with you on this review. I'm using the Fostex HP-A4 connected via USB (AudioQuest Carbon USB Cable) and it's magical. :)
