I like sound, but in the past have never been a full-size headphone wearer. I always found there were too many compromises to be made. To that extent, I focused on building a nice home theater system for music and movies and a pair of in-ear monitors for listening when out and about. However, I recently found myself in situations where listening to the home theater system was not possible and sought to find a pair of full-size headphones that could properly reproduce my experiences.

Before trying the Fostex TH-900, I bought and returned the Audeze LCD-3 and Oppo PM-1. I briefly auditioned the Sennheiser HD800. My in-ear monitors consist of the Sennheiser IE800 and Shure SE846.

The fit and finish of the TH-900 is great. They feel solid, are very comfortable in both the headband and earcups, and provide sufficient adjustment in both headband size and earcup swivel to fit my head. The cable is nicely wrapped and terminated. The lacquer finish on the earcups is a nice touch, but I do find the red color to be a little garish for my taste. My only real complaints on the fit are that the earpads are made of a synthetic leather that although soft and supple, isn't anywhere near as soft as some of the real lambskin earpads I've worn before. The pads also aren't particularly deep, so they don't quite seal to the same extent as other closed headphones. The headphone is terminated in an unbalanced 1/4" plug and the cables are not detachable, so those seeking balanced connections will require some sort of aftermarket modification. If you want to use these with a portable source you'll need to supply your own adapter. They were obviously designed for home use, but they did sound quite good when I tried them directly out of my iPhone.

I own(ed) the following so-called "pinacle" headphones: Sennheiser HD800, Hifiman HE500 & HE6 (sold) and Stax 007MkIIs, 009.

Each of those have their particular (and peculiar) strengths and weakness, but to me the TH900s are my goto set for just pure rocking fun.

If you know/own/had the Denon D2000/5000 or D7000s, you will understand where the TH900 is coming from (Fostex was involved in those designs according to folklore).

The experts call these out for being (slightly?) colored, but to me they resemble the perfect balance between a fun headset and the sonically pure/correct. Particularly good (arguably the best?) with electronic, pop, rock and prog rock genres, although no slouch at others.

I also like the Hifimans, but the Fostex rules in comfort. MUCH lighter and being closed back, means I can spend late nights with these for a few hours without waking she who must be obeyed.

Of course, amplification and dac plays a role - I (currently) drive the TH900s with a Burson Soloist and D160 dac - an almost perfect match imho. As usual - YMMV. Saying that, these are amongst the easiest to drive headphones - so they'll sound good even from a phone/DAP.

Re price vs performance- I'm not convinced that they are totally worth the $1.7k asking price, but as in everything audiophile, the law of diminishing returns does apply. (A used set at around 25% off might be more like it if you're lucky enough to come across one).

Highly recommended!

Check all that apply:

1. You love music.
2. You want to be able to crank up the volume without disturbing your roommates/officemates.
3. Money is no option.

If all of these apply to you, look no further. The Fostex TH900 is superb in every regard: comfort, build quality, and of course sound.

I work in an open office environment, with a lot of background chatter, so I've always sought headphones that could let me focus on my music while I work throughout the day. Comfort, isolation, and sound quality are my three priorities, in that order. Previously, I wore the Beyerdynamic T5p, which is also excellent, but which unfortunately broke after 3 years of regular use. The T5p has a loose, flimsy feel to it, so it wasn't entirely surprising, though it was disappointing to have to seek out a replacement. The TH900 came highly recommended by the audiophile community (moreso than the T5p), and I was delighted by what I found: A headphone with all the virtues of the T5p that feels built to last a lifetime.

Comfort-wise, the TH900 is superb, with incredibly soft synthetic leather cups and a spring mechanism that distributes their weight evenly around your ears. Despite their bulk and pressure, they feel light and breathable. I find most headphones exhausting after an hour, tops. But I could wear the TH900 all day long.

The wooden cups give the TH900 excellent isolation—about the best you'll get in a full-sized headphone (as opposed to an in-ear). I can turn up my music to near-piercing levels without bothering the colleague at the desk next to mine.

And perhaps it goes without saying that the sound quality is amazing. The TH900 is never shrill, which makes it ideal for extended listening.
