Excerpt: Using them mostly in the office, via a NI Audio 2 DJ interface. Done some 50hrs on them so far. Comfortable on average size head. I like that the bass is not too emphasized - very neutral sounding overall. Even at higher volume, I don't feel fatigue on the ear.
Excerpt: Out of the box, the sound quality is very mids-centric, with weak bass and treble. Disappointed, I almost returned it, as I doubted if modding could really improve the sound. I am glad I stuck with it as the modding is simple to do: 1.
Excerpt: (Modified unit) I cant really add to much to the great reviews but I can say I have never heard such tight precise crisp sound in headphones before. Even stock just has a precision that just catches you by surprise. That sid, Modding is the way to go.
Excerpt: I already have some very good headphones : Shure SRH440 and SRH840, Grado SR80i, Audio-Technica ATH-M50 and ATH-AD700. But the Fostex T50RP with Shure SRH840 earpads is in another class. The transparency, transient response and overall neutrality is unbelievable at this price.
Pros: Built like a tank, Comfortable, Natural Sound, Superb Midrange, Transparent sound
Cons: Bulky/Heavy, Needs An Amplifier, Needs A Quality Source, Stock Earpads Not Great
Excerpt: I'm very pleased; these headphones are no less than spectacular for the price B&H offers. They provide delicious sound quality for a comparatively low price. I would recommend these to a friend, and to anybody (in fact, I already have).
Excerpt: I bought these headphones in order to make modifications to them. The orthodynamic driver is a really high-end driver, but the casing on these headphones is relatively cheap. As they are sold, they are an OK deal for the money (though I'd go with an entry level Sennheiser for a bit more if...
Excerpt: Everyone talks about modding these headphones and there is no reason whatsoever if you want a very defined and clear response in sound quality - leave them be. I am stunned at the comfort as well along with the price-point, these headphones in my mind are an excellent value for the money.
