Fostex Debuts TR-Series of Professional Dynamic Headphones

Fostex’s TR line consists of six different headphones, each with a different housing design for open, closed and semi-open and each in either 80 or 250 ohm models.

Fostex said the TR headphone drivers, housings and other elements have been newly designed from the ground up and tuned for the best audio performance.

The open type (TR-70), closed type (TR-80) and semi-open type (TR-90) are the same variations found in the newly redesigned T-RP series headphones. Fostex’s “slider bars” are included. The bars are a nod to the design cues of the long-running T-RP series headphones.

Each pair of TR series headphones comes with two sets of ear pads for customizability by the owner. This is a set of standard-thickness pads and a set of extra-thick ear pads. Each pair also includes two different detachable, locking headphone cables. They include both a coiled cable and a straight one.

Fostex designed 40mm drivers for the headphones. The 80 ohm versions come with the standard thickness pads pre-installed, while the 250 ohm versions have the extra-thick pads pre-installed.

All models are priced at $199.99.
