Sorry, I'm not familiar with the 990. IMO, I don't find them lacking in detail compared to some of the higher end cans I've heard.

I just received both of these for $180 shipped over at [H] forums used. I thought it was a pretty good deal. I sold a pair of HD650's and a Little Dot MKIII 2 years ago because I barely used it. Hopefully, I get more use out of this setup.

Im tempted to break into tears at how amazing that deal is.

I was looking at the q701s awhile ago, but ended up getting a deal on my hd600s.


On another note, I think I should be finished with my westone 3 review this week. If there is anything any of you would like to see included, please let me know!

Not a problem. Yeah, I read some review and they seem to be worth it. My first judgement was that you'd be paying for the looks, but it seems they're well worth it thumb.gif Maybe an early Xmas present.. ph34r-smiley.gif

The majority of the cracking was next to the cable connectors.





To eliminate the problem they added connectors similar to the LCD-3. I'm not a fan of the bamboo version but a lot of people seem to like it. I should have ordered LCD-2s instead of Thunderpants.

tr8rjohnk and bigal1542 like this.

Go with a decent set of audiophile headphones and a usb or 3.5mm mic. For the same price you'll get way better sound.

Thanks a lot, that helps a bunch as I was looking at the bamboo thinking that I really wanted the rosewood. I can't find any images with the new connectors on the lcd-2 in rosewood but the info was reassuring, thanks again - I'll do some more due diligence.
