Will Symphones make a replaceable cabled version of the Magnum upgrade?

I do not believe so, but you should contact Rhydon to find out.

Damn, having a replaceable cable would be half the reason I would go for it.

When I sent mine in, he said he had about 12 full Magnums left and then he was done.

Damn, oh well. Hold onto those Magnums guys, they look to become a well sought after discontinued unit.

looks like I got my order fulfilled in the nick of time. 

post #2139 of 2335

Yes, I was going to wait a while, but when I heard that I jumped on it. I'm still trying to rationalize it to my girlfriend.

WHAT?! DANG, I WANT MINE.

 

I'M CONTACTING HIM RIGHT AWAY!

 

Wait for me!

We need a thread "How to convince your significant other that spending $300 on headphones or $400 upgrading $300 headphones makes sense." Any psychologists in the house?

Just sent a email to Rhydon and I'm praying real hard, lol.

 

That he will have left parts to transform my MS2i body into a Full Magnum... never saw this coming, I was expecting more operation time for Symphones, eventually a V5.0 driver or something, and not the end already!

 

Man I don't even have 400 dollars... but I've been interested and desirous to own a Full Magnum since driver V2 in past September. Hope I'm not too late!

If you do the full Magnum, be wary before you move the rods up and down. Rhydon's rod blocks, while substantially better made than Grados, are slightly wider. Grados are so narrow that the rod holder on the headband is frequently glued on not-so-straight. As a result, when you get the bigger rod blocks they can do some damage to the headband. So, before you use them just make sure that you check that and adjust the rod holders accordingly. It just means a little bit of pivoting that is not a big deal at all.

Thank you for the tip! I will watch out for this, if I manage to get one of the last pairs he will (ever?) make :/ :/ !

 

I remember reading you when you first posted about this issue also ;).

 

Rhydon's gimbals*, he uses stock Grado rodblocks. Gimbals are the gyroscopic rings that allow your cups to pivot and swivel/rotate

Sorry, I may have used the wrong terminology. By rod blocks, I meant the very tiny little bit of plastic glued to the top of Grado gimbals. I have no clue what to call them. Rhydon's are aluminum and slightly larger. I should post some pictures, I went for the all black build and it looks amazing.
