No, what I meant was that these cups have to be made in Japan for being part of the flagship headphone of a japanese company.

 

Regarding quality... thats another question. I know there are Katana available made in China... but ask any Iaidoka what they think about them. Yes, I do think that Japan has a culture of refinement of these processes and I understand why Fostex decided to go with other cups (i.e. not a cheap version of their TH900 cups) with the TH600.

Noticed my new TH600s have a CE sticker on the left side of the headband. A European marking, yes? I am located in Arizona, US and these were purchased from AudioDeluxe (Amazon-fulfilled seller) who is apparently located in Franklin, TN. Why would this sticker be on my pair?

 

EDIT

Noticed the CE is also on the product box and manufacturer shipping box.
