Foxtex T50RP MKIII - $130
This includes the price of shipping.
US ONLY, tracked/insured.
You will have to sign for it. You'll be home. It's 2020.

I picked up this headphone back in 2016 after the MKIII came out. I'd heard a lot about the T50rp and wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, right out of the gate the audio kept cutting out. I read that this was likely a cable issue, so I picked up a V-Moda replacement cable and the issues instantly disappeared. I tried the Shure 1540 earpads but eventually replaced them with the EDIT: Dekoni Sheepskin pads. ZMF Oval Pads (lambskin.)

This headphone didn't see a lot of use, as it was more of an experiment to see how much earpads and cable changes affect a headphone. I has less than 100 hours on it, if I had to guess. It was never my main headphone, and I mostly only pulled it out when I wanted the 'fun' "whoomp whoomp" on electronic tracks. The experiment was also a success, so I also changed out the cable on my HD 25 Aluminum and added Yaxi earpads. That made a big difference! The HD 25 is now my go-to for closed backs and MUCH easier to drive.

The headphones come with the EDIT: Dekoni pads, ZMF Oval Pads, cable (3.5mm termination), is in great condition and works just fine. Provided you have a beefy amp. Driving these things is no joke. If you have questions or want another picture, let me know.

EDIT(09/05): I realized I must still have the pads I bought with this headphone, and 'Shure' enough, I found the Shure 1540 Alcantara pads in my "box of potentially useful stuff." While I prefer the ZMF's to make the 50RP my "whoomp whoomp" electronica headphone, I'm adding the Shure 1540 pads to the sale since I don't have any other headphones that would fit them. They don't have much use on them.. much like the T50 itself.
(whomp whomp indeed)

EDIT(09/07): Someone asked if I have the original cable. Turns out, I do! Along with the original pads. Neither are great. The cables straight up cut in and out... but if you want them, you can have 'em.

I can't find these exact ear pads on Dekoni's website under sheepskin pads. They look like they can be the ones listed for LCD series but they have adhesive on the back. Thanks in advance.

Great oogly mooglie! You are correct. These are not Dekoni's... These are the ZMF Oval Lambskin pads.
Sorry about that, and thanks for the catch!
