What am I going to notice by shelling out the $ for Fostex TH-900 phones?

What am I going to notice by shelling out the $ for Fostex TH-900 phones?


In a tangential post to a previous one, I'd like to ask a general question:

I currently am using Beyerdynamic DT800 Pro phones. I'll admit, these headphones are probably the best I've ever personally worn. This says more about the quality of my experiences than the quality of the headphones. They're good. They're ok. I'm plugging them directly into my Roland RD-700nx. I guess I don't have any complaints, but if I could magically improve the sound, I suppose I would say that I'd like it to have more fidelity. More nuance. More clarity. Sparkle, perhaps--though not necessarily bright.

Would a pair of phones like the Fostex TH-900 get me there? If not, can someone suggest a different upgrade? Or, is what I have all I'm going to get?
