Also they used quality solder..

Also opening these units is not hard you just need the right type screwdriver and need to peel the pads off gently to gain access BUT,
Like I say, the main problem is the pads that will loose their bond so will need to use a double sided tape and the one I posted earlier is the only one that worked for me..

Hey my unit is older and has a serial number of 1030 ,
So I like to know what type serial numbers members have that are recent as I herd that the ed8 had a bit of variations in signature especially when I compared my old one to another member's new one and it was more flat while mine was rather "V" shaped and juicy sounding in comparison, yet you still could easily tell they were similar sounding. .

I had to open my pads and almost totally cover one of the two bass ports closest to the driver to tame the bass level and it worked nicely to lower the level while retaining the depth and doing so shed more light on the bass detail retrieval. ..
My unit has whiplash cable rewired to it so not sure how much the stock played a part in sonic difference.

I have an Ultrasone ED5 and I am very very happy with it.


Now I want to built some balanced cable for it, so I need to get some of their proprietary connectors that are used on the ED5 cable on the ear-cup side.


They call those connectors : "MMCX-plugs » and they fit the  Edition 5 but also the  Edition 8 ROMEO & Edition 8 JULIA headphone


 I need 2 pairs of those connectors.


Can someone tell me where I can get them ? 


thanks in advance

Not 100% sure,
But Check ebay, and here ..


You can ask them for connectors only to see,

But a side note about the silver dragon cable,
I personally prefer only a pure silver or pure copper as the Silver dragon was more coherent than two top copper & silver plated cooper wire I tried..

Pure silver is not bright it is most coherent and balanced I tried and also has excellent bass.

I have the twag V1 old silver wire and recently made a balanced connector for the Silver Dragon cable,
and both are very, very balanced and coherent...

In comparison, I found silver PLATED wires tend to be flashy and detailed but Soundstage suffers from disproportion (lack or exaggeration) of coherent nuances..

Anyways goodluck!
