Product Description

This traditional Japanese art form undertaken by the Sa-kamoto Urushi Factory established over 100 years ago earmarks this Fostex flagship as a heirloom to be passed down for generations.

Urushi applied over closed-back Japanese Cherry Birch cups allows Fostex to showcase the significance of each TH900, hand-built in Japan. Such allure and prestige invites us to put these featherweight and light-clamp headphones on, to be totally immersed in the incredible sound they produce.

TH900 debunks so many myths about closed-back headphones. There is nothing small about the way this Fostex stages, its larger-than-life personality projecting sonic images and soundstage far beyond the confines of its wooden cups. Centre-image and depth are produced especially realistically.

These have to be heard to be believed. TH900 grabs you and shakes you in one massive dynamic movement, also thanks to its 50mm driver that moves plenty of air.

Made of Fostex's famous Biodyna biocellulose material and guaranteed huge excursion by a 1.5 tesla magnetic circuit, TH900 effortlessly produces the lowest bass.

Biodyna is stiff and lightweight as a diaphragm material but also promises excellent damping. Biocellulose allows Fostex to keep the large 50mm driver under control at all times even as frequencies rise, averting any harsh intermodulation due to cone modal break-up.

TH900's highs sparkle and breathe naturally, with a transparency ahead of its time for what was capable behind closed cups. Notes start and stop on a dime, transients properly defined without smear or bleed – clearly a low-distortion affair for even-handed and natural music reproduction throughout.

Find out why Fostex earned Major HiFi's Gold Award when you listen to TH900 via our music players, and upgraded via PW Audio's No. 5 and No. 10 cables. Also browse the rest of Fostex's artisan handcrafted headphones here, or our other cans here.

The TH900MkII is amazing

These should be flying out of the shop! It doesn’t get better than this – TH900MK II Red with TH909 pads, PW No. 5 and Questyle M15.

A gorgeous pair of headphones

I've been looking for the right pair of headphones for a while, and it's been a challenge because it has to look and sound good as well as not be too heavy.

After several listening sessions with a variety of headphones, and the patient Zeppelin staff listening to my feedback, Jeremy recommended this particular pair with an upgraded cable and different earpads. I use it with an iDSD Diablo, and it drives it effortlessly.

The headphones are comfortable to wear, well-built, and sound fantastic. The hand-applied urushi finish was a bonus, you need to see them in real life to appreciate how lovely it is. I have always had a weakness for urushi fountain pens, so I was pleasantly surprised to now have a pair of headphones to match.

Thank you!!!

It' hard to be disappointed!

Fostex cans have never let me down. Having 3 pairs of 'em now make me fall in love more with this Jap brand. The sound character produced by each pair just matches my liking perfectly, not to mention its aesthetic n comfort on your head parts.
