Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW! - Page 712

post #10666 of 10678

Finished that blue T50RP today. Made the cable, and the interconnect for it too. It was so hard to take pictures of these things without getting my reflection on the headphones.

Right, that makes sense about layering the paint.

 

How does the Alpha Dog stack up against the DB3 NickN etc ? I know it is physically very different, but would there be that much of a jump in SQ to own an open source T50RP and an Alpha ?

The guy who's headphones I painted owns a Mad Dog too. It isn't an Alpha Dog, but he wanted one neutral headphone and one with a more fun sounding signature.

Really nice pics cCasperTFG!

The reflective surface they're laying on works really well. What camera did you use if you don't mind me asking?

I make plastic sheet at my job, and that is what I use as the floor and backdrop ;)

 

Believe it or not, its a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 18.2mp. And if you don't believe that, you really won't believe that I bought it here from a headfier for $40 shipped! Best deal I've had so far.

What are the brown pads, they look very soft and plush!

Audeze? I can't remember what he said they were. They are nice though, not as soft to the touch as Denons though, at least not as soft as mine anyway. They put your ear a good distance from the drivers so the sound stage sounds quite a bit larger than my old T50RPs with the same internal mods.

They are Stax pads and for some reason the brown ones are cheaper than the black ones usually.

Thanks, I thought they might have been Stax O2 pads, still pricy though. smily_headphones1.gif

They might be, I'm mobile right now so checking would be hard. I'll update later on and let you know. They fit really well on the T50RPs

cCasperTFG, Great job with the headphones as usual.
