Fostex T50rp 'LeakyPants' Ortho (Unfinished open rosewood project)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
This is a project can I have been meaning to work on for a few years but just never get round to it.
Basically it consists of some open back cups made of Indian rosewood, some v.thick and solid plastic baffled (same material used in thunderpants i think), and T50rp drivers.
And a random old vintage cans headband. There is no cable on it, but one can be soldered on easily. And no earpads (but i am selling earpad sets too if you check my signature).
The left baffle has a few messy holes, but it would be invisible with earpads on.
The Rosewood cups used to be gloss laquered, but i removed the gloss laquer (yeah it looked better gloss, but the laquer used had a strong smell and i wanted to remove it, some of the smell is still kinda there).
The T50rp drivers are superglued to the baffles. They work.
When i had it setup (as seen in a picture below) it worked fine, but the sound was v.dull, I barely spent any time with it but it seemed a little dull even if i damped it . I never got a chance to try much more with it, i removed the mogami cable i had on it to use on another headphone last year.
May be an interesting project for someone. Most of the hard work is done.
Not sure what to ask for, anything fair would be fine.
Im in UK, would take paypal or uk bank transfer in a way i get charged no fees. I can post anywhere.
This is how they looked like before i removed the cable and laquer:
