- Employs the uniquely developed RP (Regular Phase) diaphragm which consists of etched copper foil on the surface with high heat resistant polyimide film as the base material. The distinctive characteristic of planar diaphragm is further evolved by newly tuning the entire driver unit
- The high specific gravity resin baffle plate deliveres a high resolution sound with rich mid range and good quality lows and a reduction in unwanted resonance
- The use of aluminum and magnesium for structural parts, the TH500RP achieves a high quality texture and light weight. A unique punched metal is used for the housing, which pays hammage the original RP headphone design.
- The high quality soft leather ear pad ensures the optimum distance between the diaphragm and the ear for a comfortable listening experience even in prolonged use
- The connecting cable is made of "HiFC"(*) which for the ultimate sonic purity and superior conductivity
- The gold plated plug features the "Fostex" logo
- The package includes a quality leather texture pouch for protection during transportation
By trimming down on unnecessary luxuries and focusing on core performance, the Watson is able to operate in a dual mono configuration, with a military grade NOS 6AK5 tubes being the center piece of each channel’s gain stage. Not only does this deliver rich harmonics typical of single ended class-A valve amps but also reduces warm up time of the valves significantly whilst extending the life of each valve to operate at their peak performance for more than 1000 hours per channel.
Class A Valve/MOSFET hybrid tube desktop headphone amplifier
Supports 30- 600 Ohm impedance headphones.
Dual Mono Construction
Delivers rich harmonics in single-ended topology.
Western Electric Triodes
Uses two Bell Lab/Western Electric 6AK5 valve tubes yields and produces excellent high-frequency performance.
Smart Power Design
Eliminates any 'Pop' sound when switching power on/off. Thus, no concern for pulse energy damage to your headphones.
Compact and light-weight
Easy handling size and small footprint. Portable.
