    Wow, lovely information!

    Somebody attended Hong Kong AV Show reported that the MSRP will be $11800 HKD ($1500 USD) but I highly doubt. It is because the retail price of TH900 is $10980 HKD and T50RP is around $1000 HKD only.

    Very interested in these as long as they come in at a reasonable price point.

    Hmmm.... It's a rather tough task to achieve a reasonably good sound from this type of transducer in a fully-closed construction. Let's see what Fostex has prepared for us this time.

    The MSRP of Fostex T60RP would be USD $300. The previous price tag was wrong.

    Color me interested. Still planar?

    The question is will they learn and give that a more bass tuning like ZMF did on their Classic (based on the T-50RP MkIII). If you haven't already looked, check the thread out for ZMF and their website to see the frequency response curve. Arguably the best looking headphone curve I've ever seen. Fletcher Munson / Harman Curve. It's a shame nobody has bought and reviewed that yet. I am so close to pulling the trigger based on just that. They also have Ori pads which are among the most comfortable pads ever made. At least the T-60RP finally has the thicker ear pads.

    I hope they will not do something similar like ZMF Classic. Had tried it in the past and the sound was so-so, doesn't sound like planar at all. Tonal balance was OK, though.

    Planars to me are typically well extended on both ends but too quiet in the low sub bass, and a bit brash and sometimes too bright. Which Classic did you try, his latest only came out recently.

    The design is very reminiscent of the Smeggy Thunderpants, so glad they made a design to fill in the void Smeggy left after he stopped responding to customers.

    I'm in at the right price, love the mk3's.

    Any new info?

    I was about to order new pads for my mk3 when I saw the T60rp mentioned and I'd rather upgrade to these than start modding my T50rp.
