Fostex TH600 Dynamic Headphones - Page 177

post #2641 of 2648

The Fostex TH900 mods thread was born.

It applies perfectly to the TH600 as well. Perhaps with 3mm (instead of 2mm) damping in the cups.

Enjoy.

Well... just had a look at fostexinternational.com and the TH600 is nowhere to be seen anymore. Only TH900 and TH500. Or am I just blind?

The direct link does work, I.e. The files are still there. But I can't find it via the menu, which may be a simple oversight but I don't see any other changes.

You are right:

I've put an additional 20 hours or so on my Fostex TH600's and really enjoying them now.  They are now winning more comparison's with my HiFiman HE-400's than they are losing. (This was not the case at first)  Not sure if it's burn in, my ears getting used the Fostex or just I had inflated expectations for the TH600's.  The bass seems to have tightened up, allowing more detail to come through.  I'm definitely liking them a lot more than when I first got them.

I too went from the HE-400 to the Fostex TH600.  I appreciate each for the sound and impact they each deliver.  My decision now is to admit that I underpower them and determine what headphone amp is more appropriate without breaking the bank.

Try a Project Ember, I found it to pair well with both my TH-600 and HE-400.  You can adjust the output resistance/impedance to match your headphones and you can do some tube rolling if you don't like the sound of the stock tube.
