      Comments about Fostex TX-1 Headphones:

      I bought this pair of headphones during a Stupid Deal of the Day for half price, with the intention of leaving them at the monitor mixing console in my church. I plugged 'em in and they worked fine, and had a decent sound for the money I paid. A couple weeks later one ear speaker had failed. Threw 'em away.

      Stupid Deal of the Day, indeed.

            Needed a good set of general PC audio head phones. When traveling I haul a light weight desktop, flat screen and the works associated in a large roller bag portable office. Needed a full cover ear phone which would fit in my plastic accessory box spacer 3with power wires, video cable etc. Grand find a a great sale price. Work much better than I expected.

                Comments about Fostex TX-1 Headphones:

                I only paid around twenty for these, so the build quality is great for the price. They look like much more expensive headphones. I would say the sound is OK, but they advertise enhanced imaging and the ads indicate more high end presence, like more expensive headphones. I could not notice any of these qualities, and I'm an audophile. I think they retail around 80 , so I got a good deal. I will probably let them go, since I have a pair of similar priced AKG's ( also bought on sale ) that sound just as good - actually a little better. If these had cleaner highs they would fit the bill - they sound a bit muddy to me.
