Product Description
When the Massdrop community asked for a closed-back headphone that redefined price-to-performance expectations, the TH-X00 was our answer. Made in collaboration with Fostex, a brand that’s produced innovative audio gear since 1949, these headphones feature ebony ear cups, a magnesium alloy frame, and Fostex’s signature biodynamic drivers Read More

In the original product proposal to Fostex, yes...removable cables were requested.
Though It was in the original requirements, it didn't make it into the original version of the TH-X00 as Fostex is very methodical and careful.
They spent years working on their removable cable system to make it their version of perfect. They could have done it in a few weeks, but it wouldn't have been a true Fostex solution.
Removable cables for the TH-X00 line is one of those features that the community never stopped pushing for and we never stopped requesting.
This feature is so important to the community and to the headphones, that we renamed them: TR-X00 (The “R” is for removable.)
If you haven’t been following the journey of the first Mahogany version of the headphone into the Purpleheart and Ebony wood variants, we offer three different wood types for different aesthetics and slight sound signature variation.
However, since launch- the most requested (demanded!) change has been the ability to remove or swap cables.
Why? I’m so glad you asked!
If you develop any issues with the cables over time, you can replace them. If you need a specialized cable to connect to gear or wish to have a personalized cable, you have options.
(In the discussion comments which follow, please let us know if you modified your TH-X00 to accept removable cables and how you are using them now…Matt Takaichi is paying attention and sourcing cables for the community.  We’ve transferred the comments from the original headphone drop pages so that none of your contributions have been lost.)
Thank you for your support of this headphone, it has been a true success due to community feedback and participation. FYI, this latest change is the only one that we have planned for the series, we don’t have any other surprises on the horizon at the moment.  (I know somebody is going to ask me!)
For now, the time has come and the TR-X00 is available for ordering on June 1st!

Another improvement would be replacing the plastic fork connectors on the sides with metal, like the E-Mu Teak headphones seem to have.

I bought these about a year ago, and couldn't be happier. One (dumb) question though...I have the number 0001 printed on the left inside of the headband. Does that mean I got the lowest serial number, or do they all have the same?

Can't buy this product anywhere else that is authorized and not a reseller/used. You seem to be upset, have you contacted support regarding your issue(s)?

How does this compare to the Mahagony? Less energetic? More energetic? More relaxed? Is it still a fun tuned headphone? I own the Mahogany and Purple Hearts.

Nope. Not really. The Ebony has a pretty liquid midrange. None of the models isolate vocals well. The biodynamic drivers of the TR-X00 series produce a stubborn tonality you can't escape from no matter what pads you try.

I hear these are very laid back and relaxed compared to the Mahogany. Is this true? I own the Mahogany and enjoy its lively, energetic sound
