Separate names with a comma.
That's a fair point, hoping Fostex would've thought about that. Guess we'll find out soon enough.
I meant the 20, 40, or T50rp. When they said the newer line had "more bass", I heard it at AES NY 2015 I was like, you call that bass?
Good to hear!
yepp, that's the only i can recall during the canjam! it is hard to differentiate when you are in the middle of TONS HEADPHONES! and also with different pairing which to me quite impossible for a real world comparison
Found a bit of new info from Japan's Autumn Headphone Festival 2017 here:
via Google Translate: Says the T60rp is semi-open, more efficient? (not sure about that translation), tuned for reference listening (as opposed to studio monitor use like the mk3), and will have 3 optional balanced cables available including the new 4.4mm.
Thanks for digging up that info! Seems like this is going to be a bit higher-end than the previous TX0RP models. The 4.4mm cable is a nice option, it would be nice for that to become a standard!
In the sentence above the picture of the drivers (on the box), they've spelled the word "Phase" wrongly..lol.
Type: Semi-open RP dynamic (or Orthodynamic)
Frequency Response: 15〜35,000Hz
Maximum Input Power: 3,000mW
Available by the end of December 2017
Price: 32,000 JPY plus local tax
Is the driver here different than from the TX0RP MK3 models?
The Japanese product web page says something like the magnet holding steel plates have 50% less carbon content which results to improved magnetic field strength. In theory it should improve driver dynamic and efficiency. Though the efficiency specification remains the same 92dB/mW.
Means it sounds the same as the old one but is better for the environment
THis is out now in Japan and has its first Amazon Japan review. Reviewer says its well balanced with nice bass that they think is better than their B&W N-801 speakers. SAy it has a wide soundstage. They are also driving it out of a laptop and not using an AMP so chances are good its not sounding as good as it could.
Tempted to buy it myself but cant swing it ATM.
$292 and some change shipped to the USA--I bit. Will update the thread with my impressions once I get it in! I'm a Fostex fanatic, so I think it's pennies to help satiate the addiction
I'm one of those who will be eagerly awaiting your sound impressions of this new HP. My interest comes from:
outstandingly good experience w/my only planar--ZMF's Ori (re-engineering/re-imagining of T50RP MKIII; termed "15% open/85% closed)
outstanding good experience w/my only 100% open-back headphone--Fidelio X2
urge to check out a planar HP that's more open than closed, if not fully open. They exist, but tend to be expensive
Focal Clear (crazy money)
MrSpeakers Aeon Flow (1/2 as crazy as Clear, but not exactly cheap)
Oppo PM-1/PM-2 (both expensive, PM-1 more so)
I’m in Japan later in January, might pick some of these up, though they might be out here by then.
