Review: Fostex TH-500RP (Fantastic planar-magnetic headphones)

Firstly I would like to thank Matt at SCV distribution for lending me this pair of TH-500RP to review, I only had a short amount of time to review them, but I did get a few hours of burn-in on them before the review, a few small changes were noted.

Guest Post From PickyEar: Understanding Headphone Specifications

Headphone specifications have become a big topic of conversation, perhaps even too big. While we can all agree on them being helpful, people tend to follow them blindly. Definitely not the way to go. You've got your ears for one reason and one reason only - namely to sort good sounding headphones from bad sounding headphones. Okay, that might be overstating it, but I really want you to take this message home. Headphone specifications is a helpful tool. A guide. Nothing more, nothing less. Your ears are the judge.
