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.
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.
