This new variant of the renowned T50RP MKIII is a collaboration between Fostex and Dekoni, a company well loved on Drop for its excellent line of headphone pads. Done in a distinctive light blue, these headphones feature Fostex’s proprietary planar-magnetic drivers and come installed with Dekoni’s Elite Hybrid ear pads. These pads improve upon the original model’s sound, making it less fatiguing and smoother all around with an extended bass response. The sheepskin outer ring gives you all the isolation you need, while the velour face has a soft, luxurious feel. The pads use slow-rebound, high-density memory foam.
Note: Unlike previous versions of the Dekoni Blue, the headphone no longer ships with an extra pair of pads.
The Reviews Are In
Head-Fi user bowei006 says, “I'm also a fan of the sound. It has less surging energy as the stock unit has which made it 'hot' and 'bright' after a while and sounds much more 'tamed.’ Mid-range background instrumentals were stronger and much too apparent/forward on the stock units and that has been 'rectified' as well as the vocals taking a higher priority this time around. The bass has also been brought to life in this variant as well.”
