  Mesmerizing.
Oh man, that's very sad. He was active in this thread only a couple days ago too, feisty to the end.   Please send his family our best wishes.
  I think DF has it. This is as much or more a talent acquisition (Iovine) as it is a property acquisition (Beats). Iovine is not just the head man of Beats. Before that he was the founder of Interscope records, which means he's one handshake away from a considerable range of talents and industry people, and was the boss over many of them. Apple now has on their side one of the most scary powerful guys in the entertainment industry since Steve Jobs (Pixar and freakin'...
XLR was designed specifically for audio purposes and aside from the bulk (relative to straight wire) its effect on sound should be minimal. The mini-XLR connectors DHC uses for the extensions should be reasonably lightweight and good quality.   Keep in mind that DHC is showing a set based on mini-XLR. Verify whether your home system is using mini-XLR or standard size. If so you'll need a mini-XLR to XLR adaptor. I'm only familiar with home systems that use full-sized...
 My NT-6Pro can use both shrouded and unshrouded plugs. In general, since the socket on it sticks up a little from the surface, it can accept any kind of JH/UE/Westone-style two-pin plug -- with the exception of TF10-compatible plugs, for which the pins and wiring are slightly different. It's OK if the plug isn't shrouded, it just means the pins might be a little exposed. Technically defined, My NT-6Pro uses the 0.78mm pin style, wired - front, + back. It's a de-facto...
 It's interesting going back to Hüsker Dü's albums: They're some of the most overly-compressed professional recordings you'll ever hear, and predate the Loudness Wars by over a decade. It works for their purposes, which is to replicate the wall of noise that they would produce in concert (give a listen to Land Speed Record for a sense of it; I still can't tell what some of the songs are). The sound of their albums set them apart from most of their peers in the 80s -- they...
I got my NT-6Pro in 2012, and it uses shrouded UE-style two-pin connectors. Hidition may have changed their connectors since; I know there was some talk of it.   Take a clear photo of the cable plug (detached from the IEM) and the socket on the IEM, and send those to a cable maker of your choice and ask for a quote (be sure to specify the balanced connector too; there are a few in use). Cable makers that build IEM cables will have the more popular connectors in stock and...
 Well then, let's have a discussion about that over here.
