Taking into account the various Fostex-TH series builds and Denon-D series builds I have seen, the dimensions of the cup / frame assembly just do not allow for any recessed cable jack larger than 3.5mm to be installed. Most people that really really want mini-XLRs have to do what is called a "pig-tail" mod, which looks like THIS:




But what I recommend you do is just go ahead and get the SMC mod done, and then just grab a pair of THESE:




I believe Brandon can make these as well, so you could get it all done through him.

Thanks for the info guys!

I'm not a huge fan of the pig tails, so going the SMC + adapter route seems like the best option for me.

Follow up question. Why go for SMC over the 2.5 mm? Just wondering if there are pros/cons to go for one over the other.

The SMC does not require any cutting of the cups/frame while the 2.5mm will require a slight enlargement of the hole and some cutting of the cups

My EX1000 were balanced by him and it did make a difference so I am balancing again (ma900)

Has anyone heard anything from Peterek in a while?
 
This isn't me talking bad about him at all; I know he's a very nice guy and does great work. I also know his wife gave birth recently and he posted a message that he's trying to catch up, but I purchased my mod 6 weeks ago, sent him my headphones 4 weeks ago, and literally haven't heard from him once. Just starting to worry a bit. 
 
Thanks...

Got my detachable cable mod with re-termination of stock cable for my Fostex TH-X00 Ebony cans.  Thanks Peterek!  Quality is excellent.  Now I can use my custom extended cable with them.
