About the fostex i have to say best words

Dimos, 17.12.2016
Lately i tested shure 840, ath m40x, dt 250, yamaha mt7, focal pro and fostex t40rp mk3

Shure i found them good but little harsh so after some hours my ears couldnt used to them.

Ath m40x trust me if you want something professional in this range you have to take better sennheizer hd380

Dt 250 nice sound but for movies and maybe music styles with bass

yamaha more harsh than shure 840 and more fake sound but round nice sound

Focal was nice but not too clean like fostex

Fostex is in between shure 840 and focal professional

They have more open sound and nice stereo image..They focus on voice and that matters when you record. Really great choice!

Exciting headphones

Ollboll, 24.01.2018
First of all:
I also ordered this headphones, among other things, because I'm looking for a neutral headphones to listen to music. Actually, it should be an on-ear, but as I go out so slowly the headphone alternatives in the price range 100 - 300 euros, I am also partially landed with over-ear. The design of this headphone I found exciting because it looks technically and little styled, which of course was also designed.
I would like to anticipate that I feel my sound really subjective subjectively (of course!). I know that many testers found this headset impressive.
The Fostex was my 11th test candidate.

Commitment:
Should be used primarily for listening to music of different genres.
Playback devices would be an iMac 2017 and an iPhone, because I wanted to use it primarily in the office.
Therefore closed construction preferred.

Comfort:
Very convenient, as compared to various other headphones (eg Beyerdynamics 250 pro) less contact pressure available. The upholstery, however, are rather flat, which could disturb people with big ears. In addition, the neckline in the upholstery is oval, which is realized when putting on, but does not interfere with wearing.

Sound:
The sound is rather "flat" and less differentiated than the Beyerdynamics dt 240 pro or Pioneer SE-MHR5 or Ultrasone pro 550i. The bass is very weak, balanced along with the treble and mids. Overall for me but a rather "thin" sound and without a large sound stage. For example, the Ultrasone stood out incredibly and not heard before. The Ultrasone fanned the instruments so far that you can hear, for example, on "Windowlicker" by Aphex Twin Sounds, which I've never heard of since the song was released.
With the Fostex you had to listen very carefully (as with some, few other headphones) to guess these sounds.

As mentioned above, in tests these headphones always cut very well in the price range.
For me, the headphones are nothing.
