The Fostex T20 RPs are a set of studio headphones that can be used in a variety of different situations. I've only used these as headphones for monitoring during the recording process, but they are definitely suitable for general listening. However, I don't believe that these can be used for mixing as it really takes a special set of headphones to mix on. While I do think that the sound quality is quite good as it comes in pretty clear, these aren't the most comfortable headphones out there. I find that they fall off of my head easily as they don't tend to be all that secure. It is nice that you can adjust the size of them, but it seems that it comes undone easily, which is the main reason that they fall down. I also find that the parts that go over the ears aren't all that sturdy and definitely don't fit over my ears the way that I would like. While this isn't the best design overall for a set of headphones, they do have a good sound quailty and for this reason I would suggest trying them out if you are in the market for a good sounding set of studio headphones. This being said, while they sound good they aren't the best sounding headphones out there as they lack a certain presence that I would look for in a great set of studio headphones. Since the design isn't the best and the sound quality isn't anything to write home about, I don't think that these are a set of headphones that I would really recommend. Perhaps if they were a bit cheaper, but paired with the mid range price tag and sub par design, I would look elsewhere for a set of stereo studio headphones.

This semi-open headphones is simply gnial: it reproduces exactly all the sounds it receives. When you get used to it is really musical. Thanks him, but then I hear all really all, even the buzzing, murmurs, parasites, etc. Submitted in the music. Indeed, this headset allows me to DCEL any anomaly in a mix or a recording. In addition, there entand all of frquences Manir homogne. It is a headphone that mimics a curve monitoring frequency drives is said neutral: you build your sound with and if the bass you want, go your way, take a Sennheiser or other Headphone general public. The Fostex indeed reproduce the low but not Manir EXAGRES, Manir of balance and harmony with other frequencies. The curve is so well-frequency drives that can balance its high cost the happy (no-even when EXAGRES: mnagez your ears) without you file your cost. Well, the stepfather may sound a little wizened may lack depth at beginners but once you are used to, it can not spend more ^_________^
It has a relative comfort: after 2 hours, it starts to hurt the ears as it does not Fully ears, too bad. But paradoxically, it is also why I love him as a incentive to take a break after two hours and thus mnager ears ^ ^
The cable is fixed to the headphone via a 3.5 mm jack Stereo Systm sewn with lock. Of course, we can not put mini-jack cable to normal but it seems you can put any 3.5 mm jack cable stitches. It gnial as a headphone cable is often subject be damaged just to put a cable jack 3.5 mm stitches => 2 RCA mle and female cinch cable 2 => 6.3 and a jack works! Up Submitted, I have never seen a headphone on which you can easily change as cable, which makes it unique ))
Isolation in time closed-type headphones is good: do not use it if you expect your guests and you alone for a car you could not hear the bell on your door ' between (this happened to me several times) ^__________^ Let's say that is very well for the studio (for monitoring ct rgy especially) but the collection's outdoor (live hunting and sounds), it is less recommended because it is not strong enough and we do not hear enough.
I am so happy with this headset that I've bought two other supplmentaires for my home studio. Finally a product Fostex I'm really happy ^__________^
On occasion, I saw him only once on eBay. This means that people who are happy because possde gnral in when you're happy with a product, you keep it. Especially a headphone does not become Obselete as easily as computers or many audio gear.
