Our Take

The Fostex TH900 mk2 packs a visual punch with deep, rich red earcup, but the striking appearance belies its performance, as one of the very finest closed-back headphones in the world.  The headphones are compatible with balanced drive via the HeadAmp GS-X mk2 using Fostex’s removable balanced cable, for the highest possible sound performance.  With a lively, detailed, and rich presentation awaiting the listener, the TH900 mk2 delivers an experience of sound quality, build quality, and beauty that few can match.
