Fostex Upgrades its RP-Series Professional Headphones

Fostex has updated its RPmk3 series professional headphones that have been used as monitor headphones in many professional recording studios for more than 30 years.

Fostex said the driver unit incorporating the key Fostex proprietary Regular Phase (RP) technology diaphragm has been refined to achieve sharper audio reproduction for more accurate monitoring. The housing, ear pads and head pad have also been re-designed to derive the maximum performance of the RP driver.

The updated Fostex proprietary Regular Phase (RP) diaphragm driver uses copper foil etched polyimide film and powerful neodymium magnet. The maximum input level of 3000mW to comply with various professional uses.

Fostex offers three types of headphones with different sound characteristics: Open (T20RPmk3) for “Deep Bass” ($134.01), Closed (T40RPmk3) for “Focused Bass” ($140.14) and Semi-Open (T50RPmk3) for “Flat and Clear” sound ($139.00).

Newly developed low repulsion ear and head pads offer maximum comfort. The headphones come with a 3m ¼-inch plug detachable cable for best serviceability and 1.2m mini plug cable for portable audio use.
