How could I have missed it? It's so obvious now... soon enough someone will recable the 8320 with some OCC silver wire, or Picollino or something like that. This is Head-Fi, it happens. Someone once recabled a Portapro with Moon Audio Blue Dragon. It's only a matter of time now...

I desperately want to recable. Even if only to get something that doesnt tangle so much

More of a nibble, if he starts omnomnomin them I'll wire them up to a battery bigsmile_face.gif

 

I'm tempted to have a go at recabling them, want to to my CAL's but just not getting round to it.  When I eventually order the Mogami for the CAL's I'll order something for these as well.

Oh and random for you:
Whilst doing some freestyle, got approached by the 2009 French freestyle football champion!

He was SO SICK :D!

 

Learnt quite a bit - need to practice more now :)

Hey welcome back . I have to agree with your assessment of the MMDTs.. I did an A/B against my CKS77. Those lack in clarity detail and bass to the CKS77. The Tributes have mid coloration which I discovered while doing this A/B. They also lack some high definition which was a surprise to me.

Well my initial great impression of how nice the packaging was with CD and such. I mean they certainly look the part of an expensive uber earphones. But that was quickly dashed when I took the earphones out of the box and the housing of the left side came apart in half. Lol.! Lovely. I love it when you spend over a hundred on an earphone and they come apart. I had to use superglue to put them back together. Now they are actually more solid than when I first got them.

 

Anyway. I still enjoy them as they are musical and I accept them for what they are.But I was surprised with the shoddy build and not the sound you would associate with a $300 MSRP earphone. I am not surprised those were discontinued.

 

See now. When you get a MP8320. They might come without any box or cd or extra tips but you know what. They are not gonna fall apart.

If Carlsberg did packaging...

 

But yeah - i know what you mean about the build quality.

Wearing them over-the-ear makes me worried enough, with the strain relief stretching

8320's aren't the BEST built, but they are better built than the MDT's lol.

 

I'm even fearing my MG7's breaking - just due to the connection from wire - to earphone.

Seems a little weak.

 

Nothing beats SE535, ASG-1, Westone in build quality though :)

WOW that just put me completely off MDTS then! Yeh loving the ASG build quality!

 

But for onlookers can not complain with build quality from the price especially if they are being compared to and exceeding $300 dollar monster miles davis (mind you lifetime warranty!

Ya I think the cord will fray before the housing comes apart..I only wish whomever makes those payed attention to the problem with those to fix the issue but based on how cheap these are I suspect they will do nothing and like it..

 

Well once the cord comes apart. It might be solder time.

 

I know the MMDTS have that life time warranty but just how many guys send their earphones in because the housing came apart. All you gotta do is dab a little super glue on them and it will be stronger than when they released them. Just how much money does Monster loose on earphone replacements when all they have to do is have the people that are putting together the earphones to throw a dab of super glue onto the housing. That to me is funny. They went through all this trouble to present a really nice looking earphone with limited edition Miles Davis CD 3 cases not one or 2 but 3 cases with about 20 different monster tips and yet they don't do the one thing that will save them all sorts of time and money.. Just gluing the housing so they don't fall apart. Lol!

Yeah - it almost feels that Monster chose put offer the lifetime warranty, as they knew the build quality was below par.
