Fostex T50RP Question about input: Do they only come with 1/4"?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, just bought a pair of fostex T50RP. I wanted a pair of headphones to keep for a long time and mod. After reading a few reviews here I was under the impression that they come with an 1/8" jack and have a 1/4" as an adapter. Mine came with an 1/4" input. Any idea if there are two different versions that are made?

 

Also can the wires that come with the headphones be taken out? Are there any good wire with a 3.5mm (1/8") termination?

Pretty sure stock is 1/4" on all 50RPs. You can buy a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter if you need one. 

 

Cable is detachable. Unfortunately am not aware of inexpensive alternatives. >: You might want to ask one of the modders or post in the DIY section.

I use it on my T50s, and it works great.

Have a stock t50rp now, bought it new and it came with the stock fostex 1/4 cable. I bought the v moda audio only cable to go with it too. The sound is really weird and I don't use it. I only bought it to try out the stock t50rp sound and then ill have it modded when I have cash. What mod are you thinking for your t50rp? I'm thinking mad dog...

I'm gonna listen to them for a while, burn 'em in. I think i'm gonna go with the thunderpants just because I hear so many good things about it.

 

I don't think I'm gonna purchase the v-moda cable. I think I'm just gonna cut the tip off this one and put in a 1/8" plug.

Why?

The guy who makes Thunderpants has screwed over a bunch of customers. He is taking money, not delivering product, and not responding to his customers. This has been going on for a year which is why he hasn't logged into head-fi for 6 months.
