The Mk II version of Fostex’s TH900 Mk II closed-back headphone has had 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.

For 2020 Fostex are presenting the Pearl White limited-run model.

Construction

The TH900 headphone is designed around a unique neodymium magnetic circuit configuration. By adopting magnetic repulsion at 1.5 teslas of magnetic flux density, the TH900 is able to achieve a sizeable dynamic range.

Two proprietary 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, designed by a 110-year-old artisanal group.

Accessories

Each accessory chosen to accompany the TH900 has been 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.

Styling

The well-known red ear cup coverings have been replaced with pearl white Japanese lacquer. Additionally, the Fostex emblem logo on either cup has been refinished in refined gold as a better pearly-white compliment.

As with previous limited editions, the TH900 Mk II Pearl White (PW) also features tuning to set its performance aside from the regular models, this custom tuning was used on Fostex’s previous Sapphire Blue model.

Price And Availability

Production of this model was originally planned at one hundred pieces, but due to its popularity the production run has now been doubled.

Available in the UK from SCV Distribution at £ 1,699.
