New Fostex TH-Xoo Ebony Headphones on Massdrop

Massdrop has announced a new ebony cup TH-Xoo headphone.  Jude has comments on the new ebony cup headphone over on Head-Fi.  The ebony will be priced at $500 which is $100 more than the mahogany released a month or so ago.  According the Jude, these are his favorite of the three flavors of the TH-X00 headphones (mahogany, purpleheart and ebony).  The purpleheart appears to be the most “fun” of the three with the ebony being the most neutral.  According to Massdrop, there has been no change in tuning of the TH-X00 between each three types and the only changes in sound is due to the different wood used in the cup.
