YOU created a monster is what you did.

As a form of penance, you can always help me install a 9 foot Equinox cable and re-terminate it with a spare 4-pin Neutrik that I have laying around. The Pizza and beer is on me. Interested?

EDIT - NEVERMIND, I JUST READ THE 6MOONS REVIEW AND HOW HARD IT IS TO SWAP THE CABLE.

Nope, he just made me listen to his K1000 and decide I must have some.

I need some education on the K1K cable.

Mine is completely stock. Now I could buy a new cable for it, but I would still have the last bit of stock cable that is hardwired to the headphone (right now I'm not willing to send my headphones across the pond for a recable).

So the question is, does upgrading some part of the cable make any differences, when you still has that last stock part?

Is money better spend on better amplification than upgrading the cable?

Great to have more members joining the club!
The K1000 sure is a stunning 'phone...

10081. Has anyone ever correlated these with production dates?

I have removed the heavy, bulky connector and soldered a short extension of 23g Cardas litz to the hardwired cable. I think it improves the sound and is pretty easy to do. I continue to (slowly) experiment with different wire and if I find one I really like, I will replace the remaining stock cable.

I do not find this setup using the stock cable to be bright.

Never seen such a list, but it sure would be really great to have one.
That way we could easily find out the age of our K1000's, or 'phones out there that we consider buying.

Mine is 11510, and I have no idea how old it is. Probably just 4-5 years, but I don't know for sure.

If I recall correctly in the early 2000's (probably as the tech bubble burst), K1000's were available new for around $375. I remember they briefly went as low as $325. I was led to believe that these were from a late 1990's production run. Anyway that's when I bought mine (10081).

Does anyone know if the numbers started at 1? How many were made?

I always thought they were introduced in the early 1990's. Is this correct?

Bah! My K1000 are delayed again - the seller is overwhelmed with work and may not be able to ship this week as promised.
