Fostex TH500RP Planar Headphones

Fostex TH500RP Headphones

Fostex just released the first premium planar type headphones designed for hi-fi audio listening. The $700 TH500RP are based on Fostex’s best selling studio monitor headphones T-series. The company has employed RP (Regular Phase) diaphragm technology in their acclaimed professional studio headphones such as the T20RPmk2 and the recent T-series models. The new TH500RP model now combines this RP technology with the design philosophy and flair of the TH900, resulting in a set of premium headphones which the company says deliver simply stunning high resolution sound, with sparkling highs, rich mid tones and high quality lows.

Employing the uniquely developed RP (Regular Phase) diaphragm, which consists of etched copper foil on the surface with high heat resistant polyimide film as the base material. The distinctive characteristic of planar diaphragm is further evolved by newly tuning the entire driver unit. With its proprietary gravity resin baffle plates, delivering high-resolution sound, plus the Fostex trademark rich mid range and low frequency, a reduction of unwanted resonance has been achieved.

Soft leather ear pads ensure optimum distance between the diaphragm and the ear for a comfortable listening experience even in prolonged use. The connecting cable is made of HiFC for the ultimate sonic purity and superior conductivity. A leather texture, carrying pouch is included.
