Everything about the
Fostex HP-P1 screams quality. - First up is the audio processing. Utilizing
32bit AKM's AK4480 which features innovative on-chip symmetrical circuitry to
avoid noise coupling, thus improving sound quality, coupled with 2 filters
including a 32-bit minimum delay filter designed specifically for acoustic
sounds the HP-P1 delivers exceptional sonic performance, allowing music to ‘flow
through' to your ears in an supremely natural way.
Then there's the build quality and the sheer beauty of the thing. Engineered
from aircraft grade aluminum and built to exacting standards, the HP-P1 is a
tactile delight to handle and operate.
The HP-P1 comes complete with an exclusively designed carry case which can be
clipped to a belt if desired. In addition, a 50mm Dock connector USB cable and a
USB power cable (Type A to mini B) are also included.
