I used to work for a place that sold these. It's more for looks than anything else. If you're an audiophile your money is better spent on the mahogany THX-00's when it drops again. If you like fashion buy it, if you like great sound avoid it.
I totally agree with you. Out of curiosity, was there a reason you specified mahogany when you mentioned the THX-00's? Is there a difference or preference between those and the purple heart model? Thanks.
It's unlikely that the Purple Hearts will return anytime soon. MD extended the Purple Hearts by two weeks and the stock of 2K units did not sell out. In the end only 1,834 units were sold but some got cancelled because of PayPal issues etc... and only 1,831 units show up as sold currently. The Purple Heart apparently has smoother treble than the Mahogany more than likely due to the density of the wood being used. The TH-X00 Mahogany got a lot of positive reviews from the audiophile community, even Z on Youtube said they are a great.
Mahogany has proven itself as a good type of wood to use for musical instruments as you'll find them often on guitar tops, backs, sides, and neck because of it's sonic signature being good for bass, sub bass, and mid range. Aside from headphones I own a few guitars too, you should hear the difference between sitka spruce top guitars and full mahogany guitars like the Martin D-15M. You pretty much almost can't find a negative review for the D-15M. Mahogany is just really great for getting that punchy warm sound everyone talks about.
Right on. Thanks for the reply and info. The reason I asked is part of me wants to pick up the PH too but I just haven't been able to convince myself it would be worth adding both to my collection. I got the mahogany ones and really like them.
