Holiday Gifts Collection Massdrop Exclusives – Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00 Ebony Headphones
This headphone is a true beauty for the bass loving audiophile. This glossy, closed-back headphone will be on sale until tomorrow 12/21. While this headphone looks similar to the Mahogany or Purpleheart, it makes good on them with an extended bass response. As Massdrop writes, “The mids are more present with a smoother transition into the upper mids. As for the high frequencies, while the original Mahogany has a peak at 9 kHz, the Ebony (to an even greater degree than the Purpleheart) reduces that area, leaving the 10 kHz+ region to sparkle without any harshness.” Nice! Ebony reaches a frequency response between 5Hz-40kHz on an impedance of 25 ohms using 50mm drivers. Fostex TH-X00 Ebony Headphones cost $499.99. Estimated ship date is Dec 26, 2017 PT.
