Make hifi fun again!
Lovely headphones. Definitely an upgrade from my Sennheiser HD6XX. These are more detailed, clearer and also packs a lot of power and depth in the bass department. I expected these to be more unbalanced than I actually experiencing them. Definitely v-shaped but still a really good present midrange, not far from my Sennheiser HD6XX and also alot better than my Fidelio X2. My first thought buying these was to use them side by side with my HD6XX, but I'll probably sell those, the Fostex is all I need. Still only tried them out with my Massdrop CTH (+ lps and Siemens E88cc NOS tube).
Only got one complaint, the cable, to thick, heavy, long and sensitive to microphonics. I'll probably buy myself a custom Periapt or something.
