The Fostex RP Professional Headphone Series offers true and accurate headphone monitoring, critical for recording studios, broadcast facilities, project studios and DJs. The RP series is designed to offer the widest frequency range, minimize listening fatigue, and allow you to accurately pinpoint and analyze all aspects of your creative output. These headphones combine supreme clarity and audio performance in a comfortable, sophisticated design. All RP Series headphones deliver uncolored, clear and natural sound across a wide range with full bass and sparkling highs. But it's the sonic quality at high sound pressure levels that really sets these headphones apart. The bass is always powerful and distortion free, which is essential during headphone monitoring in noisy environments such as ENG recording and DJ work. Key to the transparent sound reproduction is Fostex's Regulated Phase Technology, a proprietary transducer and diaphragm design that has earned Fostex more than twenty international patents and has been successfully applied to microphones, headphones and loudspeakers used in professional and commercial sound installations worldwide. This technology has been enhanced even further in the new RP Diaphragm (standard across the series), which uses copper foil etched polyimide film to provide excellent resistance to high level input peaks of up to 3000mW, ensuring an accurate sound regardless of the volume. The padded ear cushions and wide, self adjusting headbands ensure maximum comfort and fit during extended wearing periods. Fostex's eye for design and real world usability can also be seen in the lockable, single entry jack, which minimizes cord tangles and offers excellent serviceability. Founded in 1973, Fostex is an acclaimed manufacturer of location sound, multi track recording, and speaker products.

Modded they sound incredible. Fast, accurate, neutral, and detailed. Just couldn't ask for better for the price or probably a few hundred dollars beyond.
Downsides for some people might be that they are large, so if you are looking for a fashion accessory look elsewhere. They probably require an amp, I've never tried them off of one and they sound even better with an amp + a dac. They'll require another cable from another vendor for a 3.5mm jack. I don't remember where sold them off the top of my head, but I stuck with the 1/4". You won't hear anything going on around you with these on and some music playing as modded they end up mostly closed. Finally they require about an hours worth of work to mod them so they sound amazing.
None of those things were a big deal for me. I was looking at headphones that cost almost 5x more and asking myself if I really could justify it. In the end I am grateful that I couldn't as I got these headphones + modding materials + a decent small amp + a usb dac and probably better sound for a grand total that was a good deal less then that. They impressed me so much I grabbed another pair and used the leftover material to mod them and now the first pair I use to drown out noise with music when I want to focus at work and I don't have to worry about the wear and tear of transporting them back and forth.
I've used them for music, movie watching on the PC, and gaming with an antlion mod-mic to turn them into a headset when needed. I couldn't be happier with them. Well worth it. The only real downside for me has been that I realized how crappy my old headphones and my stereo are and only want to listen to music on these now.
Well, these sound so darn good to me, so natural, that the only thing I've done is put on Shure earpads, and maybe that wasn't even a good idea.
These simply work perfectly for my ears. I've used them live fed by a single microphone, and it was very hard to tell the difference between live and miked, that's how neutral they are.
These will stay just as they are. I'm very happy with them.

Disclaimer I modded mine for less than $10. I listened to them once without the mods and that was enough. They sucked.Read more
