T60RP - Argon
T60RP - Argon
After many requests we are finally ready to make a T60RP variant of the Argon available. The T60RP cups have resulted in a little less bass and a little more treble than a T50/T40/T20RP based Argon, but otherwise the same. ZMF Suede oval pads are my preference with this variation. This page is for brand new headphones. Conversions will be listed on a separate item page.
Lead time is currently 8-9 weeks.
Note on Cables: The T60RP jack is already wired such that it can be used with a single ended [stock] cable or with a balanced cable. Balanced cables are available from Fostex or custom cable makers [such as Periapt]. If you order a Periapt cable from us, please specify whether you are using it with a T50RP based model or a T60RP. Our pin-out for the T50RP models is the same as the T60 - except that the order of the grounds is switched. Also, a different plug will be used for T60 based cables. Please see link to Periapt cables below…
Note on cosmetic changes: After some deliberation we have decided to not make any cosmetic changes, as we feel the primary reason most people will want to opt for the T60RP variant is the stock look. We may be able to make some changes upon request. Please email with any questions you may have.
Note on pads: To reduce the number of variations we have to choose from [and based on user feedback] we are only listing the ZMF oval pads for now. Please email if you have any special requests for pads. ZMF oval suede is my preference for this tuning, with oval protein being 2nd, and lambskin 3rd. The T60RP Argon has a little less bass and a little more lower treble / upper mids than a regular mk3 based Argon.
The info below is taken from our Argon mk3 page…
Our new Argon Mk3 are an evolution of the original's sound. We have developed a driver modification that brings the best qualities of the Mk2 driver to the Mk3 platform. The Mk3 baffle has also been modified to allow for greater flexibility in tuning preference based on pads and how you mount them. The stock baffle foam has been replaced by a combination of felt and foam that blocks the Mk3 baffle vents about 95%. While the Argon Mk3 is tuned to provide a balanced sound with tastefully elevated bass with the oval pads mounted in baffle lip, if you would like to add a little bass feel free to mount the pads around the outside of the cups similar to Mk2 style mods. Pad choice also has a greater impact on sound with the Mk3 than the Mk2.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Everything a stock T60RP comes with + any other options that are selected. Please note: The base price for the T60RP models does NOT include a strap, as the stock T60RP already includes a strap. Our strap is significantly softer and more flexible and is available for an additional $20 in deerskin or alcantara.
While the T50RP stock cables are a concern for many users, we feel the T60RP stock cable is significantly better, and as such are not including v-moda cables with T60RP units.
