Wow, haven't thought about those in ages...but I owned a pair of YH-100's right around that time. (Used them at home though, not in the studio.)

The DT100 is just dark... We always gave the T20's to the Bass Players and Drummers. I'm thinking it was more like 1986-88 that the T20 started appearing, with some new Fostex distro in the US. None of them survived the dreaded 5-6 ft drop onto a parquet floor well. If you hit the T20 just right it shattered the ear cups or sheared off the cup mounts.
I worked for a pro audio dealer in '85-86 and our party line on Fostex versus AKG cans was: "The Fostex is easier to repair than the AKG...which is important, because the Fostex is more likely to require repair."
