Oh! don't forget to use Ludo Magnocavallo's extra-dandy search engine for the Orthodynamic Roundup thread. It's the only way to navigate.

I am currently listening to my new pair of T50RPs. Thanks a bunch to the OP of this thread for cluing me in to these headphones. I had been looking for several months now for a new pair but couldn't decide until I read about these, then I knew I had to try them. So far I like what I'm hearing. Transparent and revealing are two terms that come to mind, but I will wait a while before writing much about the sound so that the burning in, both real and imaginary can take place first.
Thanks also to SameDayMusic.com for not only a great price (all three Fostex models are on sale through this weekend) and, even with the free shipping option, they arrived here two days after I ordered them. This is the second time I have ordered from them and been happy both times. I'm not associated with them in any way etc. just wanted to pass along the info for anyone looking for a good online seller.
Got mine today. How is these with break in?
I tried them with Lorenna McKennits The books of secrets album first and I got like crazed out. THIS IS THE BEST HEADPHONES EVER! Was like I never really listened to that album. Then I tried some Madonna and Dire Straits and there they wheren´t as spot on. Quite unique signature so will take some time getting used to. They have issues with their bass response though seems like they really struggle the lower it gets which hurts some tunes. Things get muted. I am quite impressed by it´s soundstaging being closed with decent isolation and all. It has no problem with depth. May even beat the K701 in that area so no way I am getting these off my head anytime soon to check
