Very good

  • 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. I mostly listen to techno.The only concern I have is the cable did not make good contact with the phone at first, and made cracking noises when I tried to adjust it, but this has since disappeared.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Neutral, Neutral sound

Audiophile Quality After Simple Modding

Jerry, B&H Photo
4 April 2013
  • 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. Fill the driver baffle cavities with modeling clay to add mass and reduce sound vibration 2. Attach 1.5 x 1.5 cm 3M tape on driver to increase treble quality 3. Damp the cups with Dynamat + adhesive foam to improve bass response 4.

EQ makes them sing!

  • 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. I did a bmf#3 and it really opens them up and spreads the frequencies out. For fun I played with an eq and was shocked at the results. With a little bass boost, mid drop and high boost this things came alive!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable

A True Reference Class headphone!

  • 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. They don't exhibit the "impressive" sound of some competitors, like massive bass and overly extended highs. Instead, they are true to the source, natural and accurate.
  • 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).
  • Pros: Amazing quality, Clear Sound, Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky/Heavy, Cable Is Perhaps Too Long, Ignore Ze 18' Adapter One, Impractical In Public, Needs 18' Adapter, Needs Adapter

Ok headphones - great upgrade options

  • 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 possible), but if you are into making headphone mods and DIY sort of stuff, these are a great set to start with.

Amazing

  • 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.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Comfortable, Precise Sound
  • Cons: Include Stereo Mini Cable

Underwhelming but good.

  • Excerpt: This headphone is good. However, at the end, I was just feeling like there was more to this set than I was hearing. The modding community can attest to that. These headphones, in their stock form, are mediocre in comparison to my other sets(listed below). I would not use an unmodded pair of these due to the existence of my other headphones. Mod them and you can get some really, really good sound. But as they are, there are better options.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Imaging, Nice Transients
  • Cons: Mids Spike, Pricey / Poor Value, Rough Sound
