The Fostex HP-A4BL is a high-quality DAC and headphone amplifier for audiophile requirements. It’s also one that feels equally at home with all music styles and genres.

I kept the Fostex TH900 mk2 for a week longer. On one hand, I found that the apparent problem areas of the transducer improved a little over the test period (habituation or better tuned transducers?). On the other hand, the liveliness led me to some additional sessions.

Fostex scores well with the TH900 mk2 in its league. However, due to the limitations outlined above, it won’t be achieving first place.

Fostex TH900 mk2

The Fostex TH909 is ideal for hi-fi fans who are looking for a refined mid-range reproduction and demanding bass reserves, yet don’t want things too delicate in the highs. Whether or not the high price of these headphones will deliver value for money is up to the individual user. At any rate, it is obvious that any buyer is investing in an elegant piece of HiFi technology with a unique playback profile.
