Fostex TH-5BB, Any Info?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I literally stumbled upon a link that sent me to an Amazon page with Fostex TH-5BB, was wondering if anyone has info on it or possibly done a review? Can not really find anything, those that I did find were in different languages. Google Translate does not work to well. =P Are they worth getting? I understand the T50 is popular, especially modded. Plus, got to love their shipping / case, well the one's with the animals on Amazon. :ph34r:


Here is some info and pictures from the Official Fostex Website. All info and pictures used are from there.



The new TH-5BB and TH-7BB are lightweight, ultra-modern headphones which have been designed for  extreme comfort listening and extended use. They both feature head bands manufactured from soft urethane and ultra-comfortable ear pads making them ideal for extended use.

The attached cord is complete with a stereo mini plug for use with a portable audio player. And in addition, a 1.5m extension cable, complete with 6.3mm stereo adapter is supplied in the box for studio applications.

Offering a superb combination of quality sound at an affordable price, the new TH-5BB and TH-7BB headphones are great for all types of music.

Just got them in the mail today, enjoy them =D Comfortable ear-pads, the headband will take some time to get used to. The sliding mechanism is pretty loose, when you adjust for fit. The bass has a kind of boom feel. Isolates pretty well actually. If I take them off and just hold the cups together can not hear the music/sound. If I turn it up a little louder and hold them, you can actually feel the drivers moving. Wonder if burn will help them even more. :beyersmile:
