    Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW!

    Quote:   For practical reasons I did things slightly differently to BMF - my mod configuration with measurements is back on page 540, post 8093. We think I have different driver paper to BMF, and since my 840 pads were sans dust cover, and earside felt was removed, I ended up with...

    mink70,   When I first got my T50RPs and listened to them, I was immediately struck by the muffled vocals you mentioned. The poblem with them, in their stock form, is that their frequency response is very midrangey, being pretty significantly rolled off through the upper mids and highs, and...

    Quote:   Measuring headphones with REW is surprisingly painless.   One clarification I wanted to give - there is a difference between providing phantom power, and providing microphone preamplification. Preamplification is needed to bring a microphone output up to line level, whilst...

    Sennheiser HD515 vs Sennheiser HD558

    If it helps, I've got Senn 558s, which were around £110 when I bought them a few months ago, which is a very similar price. I thought for that much, they were very good value for money.
