    The difference is that due to the wood the Purples are slightly bassier, but not by much - you have to consciously look for it to notice the difference. I wouldn't say it's worth spending the extra if you much prefer the look of the Mahoganies.
    I mean, you can't go wrong with either. I can't bring myself to sell a pair despite them not being too far apart in sound because I want backup if one ever dies [​IMG]

    Jumped in and snagged a pair of mahogany from MD.

    Anyone know how many wires in the stock cable?
    Can I just simply re-terminate it to balance or do I need to run new cable.

    Four wires in stock, can just reterminate to balanced. Use multimeter to identify the matching ground wire for left n right channel.

    Could you suggest me a wooden omega-type headphones stand that is large enough for the totality of the TH X00's earpads to lay on it? The one i purchased is too narrow and part of the earpads are out of it, what leads to compression marks on the pleather.

    Look at the one on massdrop, as of 11/29. It is about 2 inches taller than the HEADSTAND they have sold in the past. However be on the safe side and measure what you have now and then compare with the specs before buying.
    Yes I bought several of the Headstand models and they are not tall enough and put pressure on the connectors and that is the last thing we need !

    Anyone have the X00's and the  for a comparison? I like the X00's but find the bass can be a little bloomy and inaccurate and mids a tad too recessed. I'd like to find a closed full size that does a little better job in detail and accuracy that still carries good extension and presence in bass, just a little more evenly across the board in opposed to being right up front. X00 has incredible bass, no doubt about that. I just find it can be a touch too much for my tastes at times.

    They sell all the cups save for Teak. Just email Chan for details.

    When you all talk about the Lawton pads/tune-up kit, are you referring to the ones for Denons or Fostex models? I see there are a few different pads/kits listed on the site.

    I bought whichever one it said was for the THX00

    Same here. And NOW, off to finally stop procrastinating and install it on my X00 PH's :)
    I actually had the Tune-Up kit in hand before I received my Purplehearts. Purchased based on fjrabon's experiences.
    I only put off installing the kit for..3 or 4 months o.0
    *edit* Starting kit installation now. The package is marked "TH-X00", and upon removing the pieces, it matches the pieces shown in the TH-900 kit (left kit) on the instruction page.
    Per advice from both fjrabon and Mark Lawton, I will do only the driver mods first and leave the cup damping alone for now.
  14. Pahani
    Okay, Lawton Tune-Up is installed in my Purplehearts :) Except for the Lawton damping discs in the cups. Interestingly, there is no stock damping in the cups to remove, as the installation instructions would suggest.
    @fjrabon is this consistent with your experience?
    I think I'll leave it like this for a week or so to get used to it, and then insert the Lawton discs (without adhesive) to see what happens, along with turning the foam disc as explained in the EZ Mods thread.
    I left the foam disc in the stock alignment when I reassembled my headphones for now (vent holes aligned with the screws).

    I think they just recycled the TH900 instructions. It should be the same actual pieces though, I think. But only the TH900 has foam damping stock. I guess a thousand dollars can buy a tiny piece of acoustic foam.
