I`ve had the 200 for a couple of years now and always come back to them. I love them. After getting the se846 a year ago, they got relegated to running and gym, but I`ve recently rediscovered them and after a lot of A-Bing with the 846, I have to face the fact that I prefer the (1/6th price) JVC. In fact, I`m selling the 846 to finance a closed over-ear.
Anyway, I have a question for any 200 owners, and maybe 100 owners if you can confirm that the cable is the same as the 200: Has anyone reterminated the 200 with a balanced plug? I`m thinking about doing just that, for my AK120ii. I just need to know if the cable is 4-wire, or do they share the ground ?
Thanks in advance, and sorry if this has been discussed somewhere previously . . .
It's much easier to make a 4 wire cable than some dodgy join at the Y split design, it's not even a thick cable so they could save money by using less - I would bet my house it's a 4 wire.
If it isn't you just have to put a shiny new jack plug on instead, will be cheaper than the balanced connector which you wont be needing...
