Old design, with horrible pad mechanism.

They have a single cable entry point and looking at the pictures, it should be possible to stick a female TRS plug in there. That would be a pretty cool headset indeed...
I predict a lot of MA900 headset mods, like they've done with the AD700.
It's very likely that I'll be sticking some kind of mic on my MA900 in the future, at any rate.
For that matter, Sony needs to wise up and start making gaming headsets based on the MA900/F1 design instead of the stuff they're pumping out now...
The detachable cable mod for the AD700 was relatively easy to do (assuming you're proficient with a soldering iron). Probably even easier than the ATH-M50 detachable cable mod, which is where I got the idea. When I opened up the AD700s, the inside plastic structure looked like it was made to house a TRS jack on the inside, so I didn't have to alter any of the plastic structure like the M50 mod.
I thought about the Antlion modmic but it was more expensive, unavailable (due to production issues) and the current version at the time (v2) didn't have a mute button. Had to wait for v3 for a mute button, so V-Moda it was. Yeah, the stock V-Moda cable does seem a bit thin but the fabric/shoe lace-like sheath makes it feel fairly durable. It's actually just like the cable on my Alienware TactX mouse (rebadged G9x mouse).
Evshrug, I have tried all 4 link types like you mentioned before, but all I see when I "Preview" the message with those links are the raw and slightly mis-colored BB code lines like my current image links. When I click on the Insert Image button on the editor toolbar (which is the proper way to insert image links according to the FAQ) I get a "Your account does not have the required permissions to access this page" message pop up, likely due to the anti-spammer limiter in place for newbies like me. I'll re-edit those links in my posts once those limiters are removed.
Thanks for the compliments. I really wanted the mod to look clean, like it came from the factory that way. I also liked the stock Audio-Technica cable (the AD700 and my friend's M50 cable), it feels way nicer than the stock K702.65 cable. Seriously, for a pair of headphones that MSRP for $500, you'd think AKG could have bundled it with a more "expensive looking" cable at least. I also want to do a similar mic mod to my Annies, but I have not found a modular boom mic that terminates in a female miniXLR plug. I don't want to try converting my Annies from miniXLR to TRS jack on the headphone side. I only did it to the AD700 because I had just received my Annies, so even if I did screw up, I'd still have a nice working pair of headphones. That and the AD700 only cost about 1/4 what the Annies cost.
what do you think of this combo
or should i go with
Ill try find better specs
i think that combo will be goood
