Fostex T50-RP MK3 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Styled in black and a semi-open design, the RPmk3 Series T50RPmk3 from Fostex comprises a pair of stereo headphones. Their copper foil etched polyimide film drivers utilize proprietary Regular Phase (RP) technology in order to ensure an accurate reproduction of sonic material, thereby rendering these semi-open headphones suitable for monitoring in studio situations. To ensure a full representation of the sonic spectrum, these headphones have a frequency response of 15 Hz to 35 kHz.

The RPmk3 series is an evolution of the RPmk2, and as such, features redesigned housing, head pad, and ear pads to further both comfort and maximum performance of the RP driver. These headphones are designed to highlight a flat and clear sound, and sport a detachable cable, which can be replaced if lost or broken.

What are the minimum power requirements to drive ...

What are the minimum power requirements to drive these? Would something with 150mw@32ohm suffice?
Asked by: William
No. See below- these Fostex RPmk3 Series T50RPmk3 Stereo Headphones are capable of 3000 mW + of power; 150mW would not drive these headphones very well. General Frequency Response 15 Hz to 35 kHz Sensitivity 92 dB at 1 kHz / 1 mW Impedance 50 Ohms Maximum Power Handling 3000 mW

Will a Yamaha receiver power these headphones ...

Will a Yamaha receiver power these headphones sufficiently through the panel's 1/4" headphone jack? I'm reading many comments stating they require a lot of power, but I assume that's because of the use of portable devices which have little output to the headphone jack.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, a stereo receiver would work just fine with these headphones.

question

Where are these headphones made japan :) or China :( ?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are no markings indicating counrty of origin on the headphones itself.Moe likely on the original box which I tore up and trash for the $50 rebate. Apologize for taking so long to answer.

question

I see that these headphones are available in semi-open (T50RP), closed (T40RP) and open construction (T20RP). Which is the best headphone for mixing and mastering?
Asked by: Anonymous
We would recommend the Fostex T50RP as the best headphone for mixing and mastering, as they will have the flattest overall frequency response in the RPmk3 Series.

question

How do these headphones do with long sessions and with glasses? I tried the ATH-M50X's and they were really uncomfortable.
Asked by: Ryan J.
I wear glasses, they don't bother me. But I have switched the stock pads (which are horribly thin) for ZMF Pads which are great.
