Overview

The PRmk3 series headphones are successors to the RPmk2 series that have been used as reliable monitor headphones in many professional recording studios for more than 30 years including from the start of the T-series.

This model from the series offers a semi-open design which results in a clean and flat frequency response.

Comments about Fostex T50RP mk3 Studio Headphones (Semi-Open):

I went to an audiophile show where they had headphones from one hundred USD to four thousand USD. These headphones were absolutely better than anything below half a grand.
They need an amplifier - I use an ifi Nano and it works really well.
I am in the process of re-listening to all my music to hear the bits I've missed.
Thank you Fostex!

Comments about Fostex T50RP mk3 Studio Headphones (Semi-Open):

I attended an audiophile show where I could audition headphones that cost $100 - $4000. These headphones were clearly the winner at or below the $500 mark.

I am ecstatic at how great these sound, how affordable they are!

They do need an amplifier. These do not use the same driver technology that has been around since Edison.

I use an ifi Nano amplifier and it drives these well.

You cannot go wrong with these!

      Comments about Fostex T50RP mk3 Studio Headphones (Semi-Open):

      The interchangable 1/8" or 1/4" cords seemed like a good feature. Too bad those cords don't connect well to the phones so they cut in and out constantly.

      Needs modification for satisfactory sound

      By Music Junkie

      from Dallas, TX

      About Me Experienced

      Pros

      • Clear Sound
      • Durable
      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Supremely inefficient
      • Uneven frequency response

      Best Uses

      • Amateur Recording

      Comments about Fostex T50RP mk3 Studio Headphones (Semi-Open):

      Highs are over represented, but not evenly so. Mids are too recessed. Bass is fine, doesn't seem to extend far without a big drop off in volume. Many of these things can be addressed with modification, as the driver is special with the impressive detail that you get with a planar magnetic. Problem is the enclosure is made cheaply, making it a very uneven phone with resonance and uneven response. If there is an awesome sale and you want to put in the effort (and 60-80 dollars in materials) you can get a giant-killer of a set of cans. As is, it sounds like bargain phones with crazy detail.
