5.0 out of 5 stars Fostex T50RP Studio Headphone Review July 28 2013
Fostex Company, originally founded in July 1973 by Foster Electric Co., Ltd., is a Japanese manufacturer of high performance speaker components, consumer and recording equipment. I ordered the Fostex T50RP studio headphone from B&H SuperStore, New York, US, early this year, when it was priced at USD 89 inclusive of free shipping to my Rockledge, US, address.

I wanted a full sized Over-Ear Headphone (OEH) and my preferences were narrowed down to affordability, comfort and the type of transducer (driver) used. I wanted an OEH that was in the range of USD 100, not heavier than 350g and possibly utilizing a Planar Magnetic Transducer (also known as Ribbon Driver). The Fostex T50RP fit the above requirements quiet well.

A quick search on-line revealed a couple of facts about the Fostex T50RP that was essential for me to know before I bought and settled down with it. Though Fostex T50RP is adored by some recording professionals it is also loathed by some hard-core audiophiles. The negatives include an extremely dark and dull presentation, mid-range focused sound, rolled off high frequencies, rolled off low frequencies, uncomfortable headband ... On the other hand, there is a large modding community that has gone to great lengths to mod the Fostex T50RP inside-out and claims to elevate it on par with some USD 1500 reference Planar Magnetic headphones. So it became evident that these headphones had great potential in the right hands and it is not for everyone.

Setup & Performance

After I received my Fostex T50RP studio headphone from B&H, I put it through its paces. I allowed it to burn-in for over 100 hours before using them for critical listening.
