K1000 Question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I kept wondering what the "pigtail" was for the K1000. I assume it just the original cable? Im sure its been explained here somewhere but I fail to find the answer using search. And is it anything worth trying to get with my K1000?

I believe the pigtail is just the 4-pin XLR connector to speaker leads adaptor, but correct me if I am wrong :D

Correct you are! Below is a page of the AKG manual, on the bottom right is a pic of the pigtail.

as expected, thanks. BTW how is the original cable in terms of quality?

Not that great, but recabling can be a bitch :(

nobody has ever put a decent cable on headphones stock....

 

More than half joking.

The quality of the amp the K-1000 is connected to is a lot more important.

As is the quality of the persons ears and the ability of the brain to interpret the sounds.

Oh so true!   This should be a footnote to many threads.

Hehe well just listened to some Cosmic Gate (usually a Black Sabbath, AC/DC, All That Remains, Metallica, Iron Maiden etc kinda guy), but WOW. Sounds amazing through Zero>HLLY T-Amp 20. These are Patrick82's K1000 with Valhalla on them. I cut 90cm of Valhalla off (5-10cm left soldered to drivers) and just put 2.5M of 16awg 99.99% copper speaker wire. Crappy wire, but damn these sound amazing. Heaps of bass, almost too much at times. This Valhalla sure sound amazing. These are bass light K1000 too. I don't remember the bass heavy version I heard have as much bass as this. I need to hear a stock bass light K1000 to compare to this recabled pair. Maybe cables really do make a huge difference after all? Right now though, I stand by the statement that amp>cable.
