I notice that the original Fostex T40's (the older ones with the better orthodynamic drivers, not the newer mark II model) are held in high regard in the 'Orthodynamic Roundup' thread. I own a pair, and am considering selling them. Why? Certainly not because I don't like them! They sound great and I've been very happy with them for many years of occasional use with producing my own music.
However, I now find myself wanting to learn to properly mix and master my music, and I've struggled with the T40's with this. Great for listening, not so much for neutral/transparent mixing/mastering.
I hear great things about the Sennheiser HD650's for that - so transparent and much easier to judge bass levels than most other cans. I'm thinking of buying the HD650's but they are expensive! I would reluctantly sell my T40's if it was worthwhile, by which I mean if I was likely to get a decent amount for them!
They are in good condition for their age, and fully working of course. I have no idea how much they are worth, but I gather from this forum that they might be in demand to some extent.
Any idea what they're worth? I almost want to hear 'not much' so I have an excuse to keep them!
Many thanks in advance!
