Fostex has significantly raised the price of the T50RP. We've been absorbing the increase but we have to pass some of the increase along on the Mad Dog.
Effective May 1, the Mad Dog will increase to $329.
We use a quad star OFHC cable from Canare.
Still waiting on the cable for my MDP. USPS is hilariously slow. Should have ordered it with the headphones, but ah wells, lesson learnt. Makes me sad that they're just sitting here and I can't use them yet lol.
Makes sense given the popularity of the T50RP and its mods, Fostex just reacting to increased demand :)
If I remember correctly, the versions starting with 3.0 have a label on the under side of the headband stating which version they are. Though I could also be mistaken on this as I never looked under mine when I had it.
