LOL. Look at these fostex fanboys. Z7 sounds AMAZING with balance cable and the right set up and it's no doubt a FLAGSHIP that only cans like th900 and hd800 can compete with it. Thx00 is better? What a joke. Don't tell me you are using portable set ups to drive these cans, coz if you do, you are dumb.
Is this enough for it? -hahaha
naw bro they are good, but not great headphones. I'd rather own an X00 and I don't even like the X00. Just saying.
What rack is that? I need something of similar size.
I agree, The Z7s are excellent and compare very well with TH900 or beyer T1. Build quality is excellent, better than most others and sound signature and quality is very close to TH900. I can't say much about X00 as I haave not listened to them but as they are not a step down from Th900 I guess Z7s would outperform them. Most people discount these headphones just because they are SONY and not from a boutique label like Fostex, beyerdynamic or Sennheiser. I would rather have Z7 than T1 , when it comes to TH900 it is a hard comparison but I probably would still prefer Z7 because of better build quality.
Nope, it's not even close to the HD800, they are in totally different price point and league. It's closer to the HD700 actually, not just in price, but also in sound imo, though you can argue sound is subjective
Comparing to T1 is so totally off. Totally different league AND totally different sound signature
What? The Z7 isn't Sony's "flagship," it's an excellent headphone IMO but Sony definitely has more expensive models.
Your comment that the HD800 can "compete" with the Z7 is insane. They don't compete at all, because they're about as different as two pairs of headphones can be. Their use-cases don't overlap AT ALL!
TH-X00 in my opinion are way better than Z7. I have both.
