The highly acclaimed Mk II version of Fostex's TH900 Mk II closed-back headphone has enjoyed multiple limited-edition releases since its initial launch in 2012. Fostex launched a special Emerald Green model in 2017, followed by a Sapphire Blue finish model in 2018 to mark the headphone’s six-year anniversary.
Fast-forward to 2020 and Fostex are proud to present an even more hotly anticipated limited run model.
Into The Cherry Birches
For those unfamiliar with the model’s construction, the TH900 headphone is designed around a unique neodymium magnetic circuit configuration. By adopting magnetic repulsion at an impressive 1.5 teslas of magnetic flux density, the TH900 is able to achieve a sizeable dynamic range.
Fostex’s proprietary Biodyna diaphragm technology is renowned for its high resolution and reproduction of the finest sound details. Two Biodyna drivers are installed in each TH900, protected by Japanese Cherry Birch cup housing.
True to their country of origin, each TH900 cup is finished in traditional Japanese ‘Urushi’ lacquer. The lacquer is designed by a 110-year-old artisanal group and gives every TH900 set a uniquely prestigious look and feel.
Each accessory chosen to accompany the TH900 has been meticulously researched to offer the best aesthetic compliment to the headphone’s design, as well as high durability. A 7N grade 99.9999% OFC has been included which is detachable from the headphones for ease of transportation, and protein leather ear pads have been selected to offer maximum comfort and enclosure isolation, even during longer listening sessions.
