Item: Fostex TR50RP mk3 orthodynamic planar "ribbon" headphones Location: Adelaide Price: 160 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not going to use - bought with a view to mod but went in another direction - never modded. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays fees), COD Only Extra Info: As new, in box. I bought these maybe to mod as per the many happy folks on head-fi that did mk1 and 2s (though these are the mk3s and many people seem to like them stock too, unlike the previous models) but I very seldom use headphones and have gone another way. Pictures: Pictures are generic but these are unmarked and as they came to me. I've had them on my head maybe three times to test sensitivity. Reviews *language warning*:
Item: Modded Fostex T50RP, Audio GD Digital Interface with DSP-3 (USB), Audio GD NFB-11 Location: Bendigo, VIC 3550 Price: Varies DAC/DI Combo is SOLD! Item Condition: Very Good Condition Reason for selling: Moving trying to minimize things to move with Payment Method: Pickup/shipping - Cash, paypal (buyer covers fee), direct deposit Both the Digital Interface and Audio GD NFB-11 (with Sabre32 ES9018 Dac chip) were purchased approx. 1.5 years ago the Audio GD DI has the upgraded clock which was installed at Audio GD. This was used to connect my computer to my receiver and to my headphones. You can read the detailed specs on the Audio GD NFB-11 here: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB11/NFB11EN.htm You can read the detailed specs on the Audio GD Digital Interface with DSP-3 (USB only) + upgraded TCXO clock here: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/USBface/Digital1EN.htm Comes with BNC cable (to connect the DI to the NFB-11) and USB cable + Nice RCA cables to connect the NFB-11 to an amp or receiver for speakers. Pretty much these modded T50RPs sound very close to the hifiman HE-6s I used to own, very close but in a closed headphone. (He-6 still sound better but they also cost much much more) Modifications to the T50-RP can be seen here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/583371/t50-response I purchased them directly from HDman, very detailed list on how he did the modifications and the parts he used. Only little flaw is that he cut out small notches on the original rubber/plastic headband to mount at one time a head tracking system for virtual surround sound. Looking for $220 ONO for the Audio GD NFB-11/Audio GD Digital Interface combo with cables (as I think it should sell as a single unit) and $200 ONO for the T50RPs. Pictures are available on request

Item: Fostex T50RP Orthodynamic Headphones (Modded) Location: Bendigo, VIC Price: $150 (negotiable) Item Condition: Good Condtiion Reason for selling: Have a pair of Hifiman HE-6 Headphones...they sound very similar so no need for two pairs of similar sounding headphones Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit, Paypal Extra Info: I purchased these at the start of the year as I've heard modded T50RP headphones sound very close to top teir orthodynamics. I cannot say they are wrong, they sound VERY close to my HE-6, but overall I still perfer the HE-6, so these are up for sale. Modifications are: Hard wiring directly to each driver terminating into a balanced 4-pin XLR connector (I am willing to reterminate this into a 1/4 in jack if perfered no extra cost). Response Super Sound Deadener Acoustic Fiberglass Insulation Cotton wool Middle Headband Shure 840 pads (modded to be angled) (one has a slight tear in it) (pictures included) The only other mention is the previous owner of the headphones cut into the stock band to mount a Smyth SVS Realiser reciever. You can read up on Various internet forums for what the modifications bring, but I can say the modifications have really transformed the T50RP, which in stock form don't sound bad, but are very very far away from the HE-6, these sound closer to the HE-6 but are not as bright, and have less sibilance. Compared to a stock T50RP, Bass response is much better, clarity is much improved, overall sound signature is Neutral to neutral-warm I would say, soundstage is better.
