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 ...

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.

Has anyone heard both the Ebony and Mohagany versions? I read the Ebony is more refined, but is it really worth the extra 100? Or are they close enough in sound.

I own both and prefer the Ebony. To my ear it's more neutral and refined. I got the Ebony because of how much I liked the Mahogany not because I found the Mahogany lacking though.

Why is the one for EU 120$ more expensive?

That's ok but the option with slow delivery is removed for people in the EU. I am ok to wait a bit more but to pay 120$ less. Also the EU price is proportional to the price of the product so it's not just the shipping price. Also lots of the products are manufactured here in the EU so the price doesn't have to include VAT in the first place. Example - Sennheisers are made in Romania and Focals in France. It's a bit unfair in my opinion to charge EU customers more.

Does this work well with a tube amp, say the Dark Voice?

is anyone getting shocked from this? I keep getting electrocuted from the cables, whether it's touching the metal part of the connector, or sometimes on my head. I've tried multiple amps, is this a manufacture QA issue?

These headphones have a really annoying scratching sound when the cable rubs against my sweater. Can anyone recommend an aftermarket cable that will fix the issue? Thanks.

Just got mine today. Left channel was dead on arrival. Quite disappointing as I was so excited to listen to all my music again...
