Best quality studio headphones for the professional.

Model TH900mk2 is the second generation of the TH900, one of the most renowned premium dynamic headphones in the market. New features of the redesign include detachable connectors for replacement of the standard unbalanced cable (equivalent to model ET-H3.0N7UB).

The Fostex TH-900 MKII closed-back full-size headphones are among the best headphones in the pro studio market. Their story begins on workbenches in Fostex’s Japanese factory where they are manufactured in small quantities at a time. Fostex is known across the range of their product line for fine headphones. In this one of their premier models available, no consideration is discarded, no detail ignored.  

The TH-900 MK II uses Japanese Urushi Bordeaux lacquer technique on the earcups. This is part of the TH-900’s visual art component, a nod to ancient Japanese lacquering techniques often seen in soup bowls and chopsticks. The tree the sap comes from is rare, and the artistry with which it is applied is nonpareil. For headphones in this price range, an at once exhilirating and relaxing experience is required, and it is delivered here in plenitude. The set is light to wear and its even weight distribution makes for a nearly indescribable comfort level. Luxurious earpads complete the experience.

The Fostex TH-900 MkII is warm and clear, and resistant to fatigue both from a listening and a wearing perspective. It has a nicely defined bass that some engineers like to dial out a bit, but for hip-hop and other bass-heavy production, it offers a clear image of what is happening in the basement. The midrange is smooth and easy to listen to, and offers insight into the all-important vocal range of your mix. Trebles are likewise clean and clear, and absent any brittle top end.

The optional balanced cable, model ET-H3.0N7BL will also be sold separately to meet growing demands for balanced connection with various headphone amps offering balanced 4-pin XLR out.
