The TH-500RP is the third addition to Fostex’s growing range of high-end audiophile headphones. The TH500RP uses the already renowned RP diaphragm, employed by Fostex for many years in sets like the T20RPMKII and also found in modified sets from the likes of Mad dog and Thunderpants. Fostex have developed their own audiophile RP set with thick ear pads, new headband and aluminium enclosures.
