I think it looks ugly =P

+1, they call this a "Limited Edition"...

 

Looks like they just added some lettering, which I already believe the TH-900 have too much of already. Plain Urushi cups, please. I was expecting a very formidable looking revamped TH-900 when I heard LE.. too bad.

 Yes. The branding on the cups is awful.

They should make a version with detachable cable rather than doing this.

I think these are just for Suara's fans, which are definitely more or less not people that would not appreciate the TH-900, anybody agrees? No offence to the small group of audiophiles who so

happen to be Suara fans... But who knows, any Suara fans here?

Not particularly a fan of Suara or the limited edition cups , but here are the two songs of hers that I remember.

Some impressions.

post #4031 of 7511

So I'm contemplating modding(or rather having some savant do it for me) a pair of these cans with balanced mini-xlr inputs like the Audeze LCD-2/3. This is a really stupid idea, right?

 

I just know I'm going to tear the fixed cable at some point(I have an ugly history with fixed headphone cables), I would love to get the most out of these cans, I already have a expensive cable I could use for this purpose and a balanced source.

 

Are these just the ramblings of a crazy person?

 

 

Please don't judge me.

I don't consider myself as an experienced user, however this question has been asked quite a bit, so just to pass on as a chinese whisper, TH900s do not benefit at all re-terminated, if they did I would of done this myself already. The only low impedance headphones I know of that do benefit are some Grado's

Those are your headphone you free ti mod it. I have saw a French amateur who hardwired cabled th900 with balanced cable to use with Eddie balancing act and it's it's best combo with the Stax 009.

th900 is easy to recable and you can keep the old cable is u really want to reverse. Not need to be neurotic I don't have done it but you can pass balance cable in the predrilled hole no problem.

Don't drill the th900! But recable is really easy job. Keep the original cable as a reverse option, and Just cut your custom cable termination those are so easy to reterminate afterwards too.

Yeah. I'm not expecting to improve on the sonics all that much. It's purely a experimental decision. It would make it more compatible with some of my gear, the cable tearing wouldn't render the thing useless and the removable cable I already have has better ergonomics.

 

I'm not doing this with the main intention of improving the SS.

Well yes if you have little choice than re-terminate
