Fostex TH500RP Planar Magnetic Headphones

Premium RP Headphones

Featuring the design philosophy and flair of Fostex's flagship TH900 in a planar magnetic headphone, the TH500RP brings soul and substance to every track. The root of this headphone is the company's Regulated Phase technology: a proprietary transducer and diaphragm design that's used throughout its range of pro-standard microphones, headphones, and loudspeakers. In the enhanced RP diaphragm, copper-foil-etched polyimide film provides strong resistance to high input levels, giving you clear sound no matter how loud you crank it. Retuned for even more power, the TH500RP captures the explosiveness of drums and the nuance of vocals with a clean, well-balanced overall presentation.

Note: This drop is limited to 57 units.

Comfortable & Powerful

Made with long listening sessions in mind, the TH500RP is constructed for maximum comfort and durability. Between the leather ear cushions and self-adjusting headband, you’ll stay cozy hour after hour, and the frame is made from a sturdy mix of aluminum and magnesium elements. Finished off with punched metal housing and a heavy-duty HiFC cord, this headphone combines top-of-the-line sound and premium design for an immersive, powerful audio experience.
