FS : Fostex T50rp orthodynamic headphone (modded) PRICE DROP

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hi,

here I'm selling my Fostex T50rp orthodynamic headphones.

It's a pretty well known headphones here on Head-Fi, and I modded it with the classical stuff, which means :

- filling the space around the rear of the driver with NewClay product's moddeling clay (with good acoustic property)

- Akasa Foam in the cups

- Thin felt in front of the driver to filter trebles

- Genuine Sony SA5000 Leather pads (150$ / pair)

- Removed the jack connector on the headphone to directly solder the cable on the driver (better connection/ less interference)

Beside that, it's in a very good overall state, clean and good looking.

Shipping Worldwide,

Shipping cost included.

Payment by paypal.

 

SOLD

I am modifying my own pair, so can't purchase yours, but wanted people to know how good these headphones can sound in general.  With some standard mods plus some very nice leather pads, these look like a bargain to me.

It's a really good pair of headphones, crafted with love, for a fair price, and giving some crazy good sound to your ears beyersmile.png

Hi Mate, these look quite nice.

Could you describe the overall condition of the headphones, are there any scratches blemishes etc. Roughly how old are they?

Also how did your mods change the sound signature? did it put more emphasis on bass, mids or trebble or just improve the sound quality a bit?

If you don't mind me asking, why are you selling them?

Hi !

Well, for the overall condition, it's very good. No scratches, they look almost like new, except for the place the cable go inside the cup where you can see it's DIY (but clean DIY :D ).

I don't know how old they are, I bought the Fostex on a forum one year ago to mod it.

The mods improve the general sound quality : remove the "reverb" in the sound, calm down a little bit the trebles (no more harsh trebles), more emphasis on bass (not boomy, it's still dry and fast bass, but you can feel the kick better), while keeping the superbe mids. In the end, it's a pretty neutral sound, with fast and tight bass, very good ortho mids, and non-agressive trebles.

 

And to finish, I'm selling them coz I'm traveling more often and I don't have time anymore to enjoy music at home, so I'm going for a nomad config...
