    I guess I was mistaken then, only the DT190 has a balanced-ready cable (7 wires total for the balanced mic + each driver)
     
    Perhaps the (W)K100.00 bare ended cable for the DT100/150 has all 4 wires - the only image I can find suggests it has wires for all 6 pins of the proprietary connector

    I was right, 3 "Enamel Coated Conductors" inside the K100.00 or whatever...
    stillevil, that's not Balanced.

    What I don't understand is that you can buy the connector from Beyer for $6, buy that and put a Mogami Quad or the Sommer SC-Peacock MKII cable which the T1 uses.

    I told you the K100.00 was 3C.

    Yep, I agree that I need 4 wires but with the "balanced" connector I get the double power from my amplifier (which is PB2 modded with opamps and powered by 16v). With this type of the connection it's a huge improvement over the single ended connection. When I purchase a 4 wire cable I will replace it for aesthetic reasons only but I'm sure I will not hear the difference because true balanced wire separation is required on extremely long distances to hear any improvement if any.

    Just posted the picture in another thread but also thought people interested in DT150 will find it interesting to take a look at the new true balanced cable which I've just made of Cat5 UTP 24 AWG.

    The sound with opamp modded PB2 at 16v is a lot better than single ended. It's like you can feel the music and can't stop listening. My advice, if you have PB2 and want to go single ended no matter whether it is modded or not, forget about the sound and go with a different amp.

    Well done on the chord! 
     
    I'm curious, and perhaps a bit ignorant, but why go to so much trouble for a portable SS amp? 
     
    Can't you get a descent balanced desktop amp, SS or tube, for a similar price?
     
    (Separately, has anyone compared the Darkvoice with the Feliks audio Epsressivo-e? http://www.head-fi.org/products/espressivo-e-by-feliks-audio, and possibly,gasp the Valhallah 2?)
     
    I get the chord upgrade though, and will hopefully hold on to these phones long enough for something like that to come out into the mainstream market for those with three little kids and no DIY garage to experiment...
     
    Best,

    I'm also interested in this comparison. I like my Espressivo but for DT150 i need something with more brillance on top. But spacing is totally great.

    The main reason is to squeeze the max juice from the portable amp that I always carry with me while commuting to work and do at work listening. Carrying a desktop amp is a little too heavy for me)

    And this is my travel set:

    The picture is from a while ago. I have switched the amp now from Quickstep to PB2 but the idea remains the same.

  14. tame
    Not so uncomfortable for me, or may be I don't feel this yet.
    Don't want to put them off.

        Cheap maybe, unconfortable in no way, even for long sessions
