    Simply beautiful. Love the grain of the wood and the finish; the end result is awesome.

    Now if only those Fostex headphones sounded as beautiful as they look...

    Well I am pretty sure that if you take the things mentioned in this thread into consideration you will end up with something that sounds good!

    The sound certainly do stack up to the looks. In fact far better than D7000 looks/performance ratio. :laugh:

    Certainly a more than worthy headphone to consider at that price range.

    I already have a pair of Audeze LCD-2 so it's either going to be the LCD-3 or the Fostex TH-900 and I love Foster/Fostex drivers. I still enjoy my Denon AH-D5000 on a daily basis.

    From my experience, the LCD3 while a improvement from LCD2 but just not worth the price they are asking. TH900 is just a better choice IMO.

    Depends what amplifier you have, Audio Technica W3000ANV well worth looking as well.
     
    BumbleBee says thanks.

    Burson HA-160 and Graham Slee Novo.

    i'm interested in the new prototype by Audeze but it won't be out until 2013. Mark Lawton now does Fostex TH-900 http://www.lawtonaudio.com/page68.html

    The stock TH-900 sounded excellent out the box, none of the issues that the Denon D7000 had and simply better.
