Thunderpants (T50RP mod) Group Buy - Page 59
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
2 companies have started selling modified TrP 50 headphones. Between 300 and 700. Ive owned Thunderpants, unmodded trp50, and lcd2. Nothing compared to the lcd2. I was displeased with the Fostex sound. Small, lacking bass, mundane. Id never own another pair. Just my experience.
While I haven't had a chance to compare directly to an LCD-2, I did to my LCD-XC which is a more apt comparison IMO as they are both closed. I felt my Thunderpants were more similar to my XCs than they were different - the XCs came out on top, but not by a huge margin, and certainly nowhere near as much as would be expected by their difference in price.
No, same driver, but there is a lot of potential in the Fostex driver.
I got a lot of very favorable reactions to my Thunderpants at Head-Fi meets.
