The Fostex TH-900: A New Flagship Platform For a New Era!
As many headphone fans know, the classic Denon AH Series of headphones (AH-D2000/AH-D5000/AH-D7000)
that we use as platforms for our innovative series of upgrades have been discontinued
by the manufacturer (don’t fret-- we have plenty of Denons in stock for your Level
3 dream phone, please Contact Us while supplies last).
But true insiders have also always known that these beloved headphones were actually
designed and built by a company called Fostex, Japan, and marketed to the world under
the Denon brand.
In 2012, Fostex has introduced a new headphone to the market under its own banner
called the TH-900 that just might look a little familiar to fans of the classic Denons!
What Fostex has given us with the TH-900 flagship is a true successor to and upgrade
from the former top model in the Denon line, the AH-D7000. Fear not-- in every way,
you can still hear the echoes of and resemblance to the previous models for Denon.
Everything you loved about those classics is retained; the TH-900 is simply more
evolved, enhanced, and further improved, providing Lawton Audio with the best platform
yet for our series of mods and upgrades.
That’s right, because of their physical similarities, all of the exclusive mods we
have intensively developed over the last 6 years for the Denon line are simple drop
in replacements on your new Fostex TH-900. That means all you DIY types can order
upgrade kits and enhance your Fostex today! Or, you can send them in to us for a
complete Level 3 upgrade transformation into an LA-900.
Lawton Audio is thrilled to add the Fostex TH-900 platform to our line of world-class
headphones, and proudly introduces a brand new benchmark in musicality we call the
LA-900. If you are looking for the ultimate headphone that will give you a lifetime
of musical enjoyment, the LA-900 is it!
It is not your imagination; physically, the two units are nearly identical in construction,
largely featuring the very same parts. But there are some key differences. The value
proposition for the upgrade from the AH-D7000 to the new Fostex TH-900 is similar
to what Denon offered when you went up from the D5000 model to their D7000 model:
Newly developed driver. The driver is the crucial sound-producing diaphragm. TH-900
driver also features the latest evolution of their bio-cellulose material.
New even more powerful magnet, makes it faster, more dynamic, nimble and responsive.
New look stock wood chambers , same basics but moderately different shape/dimensions
with an upgraded finish.
Everything else of consequence carries over from the D7000, including the wire inside
the cable. The previous jump from the D5000 to D7000 represented a doubling in price
for the buyer in exchange for the same basic set of factory enhancements: new driver,
bigger magnet, and prettier cups. As you can see, Fostex’ new TH-900 model provides
a familiar set of enticements over the D7000 model for a similar price differential.
The TH-900 sets a new standard as a platform for our enhancements; we’re really excited
and inspired by this amazing new headphone and the way it really sings with our upgrades.
If you loved the classic Denon line, the new Fostex delivers, extending their legacy
and taking the design forward several steps. The D7000 is still a formidable headphone
and a killer platform for our mods. The TH-900 is just that much better and a tremendous
successor that really brings the music!

Our Copper Queen: The Ultimate Cable For Your Fostex TH-900
As we have noted earlier, the wire inside the TH-900’s cable is the same as was used
on the Denon AH-D7000. The D7000/TH-900 stock wire is OK for a stock wire, but these
phones will be used in demanding systems that deserve a real cable like our Copper
Queen. The Queen has long been acknowledged as the ultimate partner to feed the Denons,
and there is no replacement cable more synergistic or better matched for your new
Select your perfect length from 1m to 3m and beyond.
Choose from among our outstanding selection of the best audio plugs, and connect
your Fostex to any amplifier on the market.
