    Hello,

    I would want to ask you something important for me, please.
    I listen only classical music (on cowon at home), and i like when it sounds natural.

    So, i saw the FOSTEX TH7BB is very good for this music.
    And i am asking if the FOSTEX T50RP sounds most and better NATURAL than the TH7BB ?

    And, if i can use the T50RP with cowon x9, without amp ?

    Thank you very much.

    As we don't sell the T50RP, I don't know how they sound. They are studio monitoring headphones and this normally means that they should be very flat and neutral, not necessarily that musical though. The TH7BB are great all rounders, especially for the price.

    The T50rp are heavily modified by different DIY'ers who resell the modified headphone through websites that facilitate those customizations. I've seen the test results of the standard T50rp, and while they have a sizeable fan base, they are far from flat or neutral. For a user who is interested in that sort of thing, I'd say get in line for one of the big-name modified versions such as the 'Mad Dog' edition, but the stock T50rp has been bettered by many more up-to-date headphones, at different price levels.
