Overview

Our take on the Fostex T50RP Mk3

I'm psyched that we're finally carrying the Fostex T50RP Mk3 studio headphones — it's a big win for both our pro audio customers and my fellow hardcore headphone fanatics. Whether you create music or just deeply appreciate it, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more respected set of headphones. You can trace Fostex's RP Series lineage back to recording studios in the 1970s.

Fostex T50RP Mk3 headphones

The Fostex T50RP Mk3 headphones sport a functional, semi-open design.

A studio staple — and a hit among headphone enthusiasts

I'm psyched that we're finally carrying the Fostex T50RP Mk3 studio headphones — it's a big win for both our pro audio customers and my fellow hardcore headphone fanatics. Whether you create music or just deeply appreciate it, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more respected set of headphones. You can trace Fostex's RP Series lineage back to recording studios in the 1970s.

And they haven't changed much since then. Just check out that refreshingly retro and functional look. Their semi-open design provides a bit of sonic airiness, while still keeping sound from escaping around live mics.

Classic, midrange-forward sound

These headphones use a planar magnetic driver system with Fostex's classic Regular Phase diaphragms. They produce clear sound across a relatively wide frequency range. But they really excel in the mids. That's especially helpful for the mixing process, because that's where the human voice and other melodic instruments mainly live.

And they are also legendary among serious headphone enthusiasts, for the obvious reason — their detailed sound. (Plus one reason I'm only allowed to acknowledge with a wink: please remember that altering or modifying these headphones could void the warranty.)

You don't need a headphone amp to run these Fostex headphones. They can plug directly into a headphone port on a device like a receiver or portable audio player and get all the power they need to sound nice!
