How we Hack the Fostex TH900 headphones.

Fostex TH900 headphones

Step 1 : Preparing to Hack the headphones

Here are the Fostex TH900 headphones with the original stock headphone cable.

We hardwire these headphones when we hack them as hardwiring a high end audio cable to the drivers makes most headphones sound better.

Step 2 : Mid Hack

First we build the Silver Dragon V3 headphone cable with a 1/4" amplifier connection (a very common desktop and portable connector).  We then remove the cups of the headphones and expose the drivers.

Soldering the audio cable to the headphone drivers on both sides is the "purest" approach to create the best overall sound quality.  It is to the headphones benefit to run the signal wire directly to each driver to eliminate any unbalanced effects on the signal path. 

Hardwiring is always the best sonic choice when upgrading your headphone cable (if possible).

Fostex TH900 Final Hack

The Silver Dragon V3 headphone cable has been hardwired to both drivers of the Fostex TH900 headphones.

The TH900 is a very linear headphone from the top to the bottom of the frequency spectrum. It does not have a recessed midrange or an overpowering bottom end.

It is a true reference headphone and a perfect fit for mastering engineers, audiophiles or music lovers that need and desire a true representation of their music. It is not overly analytical but a truly transparent headphone.  For this reason, we recommend the Silver Dragon as the cable with the perfect sound signature match to take the TH900 to another level of resolution.

It provides just the right snap to control and speed up the bass signature for a perfectly accurate, bottom end. It also adds more depth to the musical presentation, another layer of clarity, plus, more air to the vocalist's breath and picking of the stringed instrument(s).

 

"The Fostex TH-900 and the Silver Dragon V3 are such a wonderful, synergistic combination.

They truly take music appreciation and headphone enjoyment to a whole new level of Ear Opening Experience,"

Drew Baird, P.E., President/CEO of Moon Audio.
