I just got the mahogany but haven't received them yet. I wonder how do they compare with these in terms of bass?

Bass is more present in the purplehearts , atleast so I've heard. But there isn't alot of difference, I also just want these because these look more premium in my taste :). Please massdrop, drop this item again.

Similar V-shaped sound signature with more lows and highs

I've been thinking about selling my mahogany and get these. I don't care about the color much, bass and sound in general is my main focus. Not sure if it's worth the effort to replace it with mahogany since they don't differe as much compared to PH

If you want to get a good review from someone that had all three headphones (mahogany, purpleheart and ebony) then go to z reviews and look for the fostex th-x00 mahogany and purpleheart review where he explains the difference.

the headfi thread linked in the description has the freq graph for all three versions (I think they're in the ebony drop page too). The purpleheart is substantially bassier (about +8db in the 60-80-hz area over mahogany/ebony). Definitely different sound. If you want dat bass, purpleheart is the way to go. It just happens to be the best looking one also.

Can confirm, dat bass is sick. Clear sounding and with the lows, mids and highs all easily hearable. I'm loving my purplehearts and I highly recommend them.

Na, Z is not a bass head, neither does he use EQ.

Still don't know and not sure! After seeing z reviews + all sound tests for both models, there still 1/2 of the people think mahogany is better in bass :/!
I've my mahogany in front of me now, box not opened yet, planning to sell it on eBay. I might actually reconsider that, especially since PH haven't drop yet and I've waited lot of time already for a good headphone.

I have both mahogany and PH and think the mahogany bass is better and sounds overall better. I love bass and if I do a back and forth I would say the PH has more bass but its difficult to discern the difference with most tracks.
