The TH500RP combines Regular Phase (RP) diaphragm technology with the design and flair of the TH900. Expertly constructed using aluminum and magnesium materials, the TH500RP offers a high-resolution sound with rich midrange and good quality lows.
This set has been hacked with a hardwired, 5-foot Silver Dragon V3 cable featuring a Neutrik 4-pin XLR connector.
This headphone 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 a planar diaphragm is further evolved by newly tuning the entire driver unit.
The high specific gravity resin baffle plate delivers a high-resolution sound with rich midrange and good quality lows and a reduction in unwanted resonance.
The use of aluminum and magnesium for structural parts gives the TH500RP a high-quality texture and light weight. A unique punched metal is used for the housing, which pays homage to 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.
