I finally have my pair! One thing's for sure, the bass is so well defined on this pair... and I see now why female vocals are so well regarded on the R10s.

Well, the 1xxx serial number is always going to be a bass heavy version, while anything below 1xxxx number is all depend. I had 764 that is bass light and sound identical to my old pair, 284. While my current and only pair 358 sounds identical to the 996 that I used to own, which is bass heavy.
purk, I've been going back and forth on recabling the R10, and I guess I am worried about something possibly going wrong. Should I just have them reterminated? I'm getting the 307A in the next week or so, and I've read that balanced makes a big enough difference than staying with 1/4in.
I have to say that I was impressed by the quantity and quality of bass compared to another R10 I listened to years ago, which makes me believe either it was the amplifier used or the possibility that it was bass-light. I was surprised how well the Gilmore Lite was able to drive these phones without much effort!
