TH900MK2/SB Limited Edition From Fostex - The Audiophile Man
Limited to 300 only, the TH900MK2/SB release commemorates the sixth Anniversary of Fostex’s original TH900 back in 2012 …which, to me, has got to be one the most laughable reasons to release any headphone ever. A sixth anniversary? Sixth? Not 10th? 20th? Even fifth is marginally better. But sixth? Stick with the limited-edition story, guys, it has more legs. Back to the plot, though. Built with custom-made Sapphire Blue Urushi lacquered cups in place of Fostex’s regular Bordeaux finish, the TH900MK2/SB also features “special audio tuning” for a “smooth and flattened low-end”. The headphones ship accompanied with a leatherette carry bag, limited edition photo book and custom-made wooden headphone stand. The TH900MK2/SB headphones are equipped with proprietary Biodyna diaphragms for and “protein-leather” earpads. Fostex’s neodymium magnetic circuit is accompanied by a detachable unbalanced cable imade from 7N grade (99.99999%) OFC terminated with a heavy-duty Duralumin plug casing. The included custom-made limited-edition headphone stand is made from entirely solid wood, sporting an oak hanger and beech base and situated at the perfect height to cater for Fostex’s TH900MK2/SB. Price is £1,399.
