*pro tip - pair these with the new Fiio K5 Pro dac/amp for a killer desktop system. (plus fast, free shipping)
The Fostex T60RP is a headphone lovers dream product. T60RP is a semi open planar magnetic headphone that needs a fair amount of power to drive it (not for a phone!). Fostex took their good, affordable T50RP and built it up into a higher performance, luxury version that is still under $400!!
The earcups are now mahogany instead of plastic. The head-pad is genuine leather and the top headband looks and feels much nicer. The ear pads are also deeper, a better shape and use better quality foam - comfort is just excellent.
A short straight cable is included and you can change to a balanced cable if you prefer.
These do sound clearly better than the excellent T50Rp and look and feel like several classes above as well. An affordable luxury headphone.
