For Sale:
Tastefully modded T50RP, Hifiman cable compatible

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Up for sale is my tastefully modded T50RP. I have spent a lot of time modding this pair of headphones to be what they are now.

 

The cups are dampened with Dynamat Extreme, the baffles are untouched (brand new replacements, ignore the white clay in the baffles in the last 2 pictures, those are the old baffles. The drivers look the same though), the back of the drivers have transpore tape covering them, then a small amount of memory foam between that and the black plastic X's mounted over the drivers. These mods create a nice sound stage, nice clear bass, and more forward mids than the stock T50RP. 

 

On top of those mods are the dual entry SMA connectors installed on each cup for use with Hifiman cables. The vents on the cups have been sealed with Bondo along with the hole where the stock cable plugged into the left cup. You can't even tell they were there. I made new bass ports at the top-middle of the cups behind the headband adjustment, I think it looks much more sophisticated there. 

 

The cable that is included is a hybrid cable made up of BTG Audio's silver plated copper, and XPLE copper wire. The Hifiman (SMC) connectors were bought from PlusSound, and the 3.5mm connector is a SwitchCraft.

 

The original box is also included.

 

 

The price includes shipping in the connected 48 US states but not the PayPal fee, so please send as gift or add 3% for fees.

Man those are beautiful! 

 

If these haven't sold in a few days which I doubt I might be contacting you to work something out.

 

How would you describe the sound and do you have another pair to reference these against? 

 

Also what kind of amps have you used with these. Good and bad 

 

 

Thanks,

These actually sound pretty similar to my Audio Technica ES10, but in an around-ear headphone. The bass isn't quite as punchy as the ES10, but that's simply because the ES10 has extremely strong bass. The mods I performed on these were meant to bring the mids forward, which I have been pretty successful with. The highs are nice, they don't hurt your ears but still seem to extend pretty far.

 

I've only used these with my Fiio E12 on high gain, they require a bit of amplification. 

 

Thanks for the interest!
