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 mahogany ear cups, a magnesium alloy frame, Fostex’s signature biodynamic drivers, and a highly reviewed sound signature ...

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!

Anyone have experience with modding the ThX00 with the Lawton driver only mod. If so would you do it again, how does it affect the bass, separation, mids more forward and treble. And does it take away or enhance that liquid syrupy sound that users describe as additive. I have a pair and don’t want to loose that. Thanks.

I don't know anything about a lawton mod. But I have owned these for over a year. I keep them at the office and use them for m any hours at a time every work day. For me, these are the best, most comfortable stock pads I've ever tried....I like they're sound quality too.

if like the amount of treble in my hd 6xx but i dont like and almost cant stand the amount of treble/sibilance from my dt 990, do you think i would enjoy this fostex if i am looking for something as an upgrade/sidegrade to my hd6xx with more based on the amount of treble it has?

These definitely aren't as analytical as the HD series. I would classify these headphones as bass cannons. The vocals, instrument separation, and soundstage of the Fostex is completely different than the HD series.

So, 2 years later.. The screw attaching the cups to the headband broke and the cup fell off. More surprised than disappointing tbh. I'd assume the build on the new tr-x00 is the same.. What a shame... back to my HD598s for now I guess.

I came back to this discussion to ask how much of an issue the headband actually is, and this answers that. I'm sorry yours broke.

https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-cth-sdac-dac-amp My roommate has the Mahoganys and this amp. The CTH adds more bass to an already bass heavy headphone. They pair well and really give you a rumble when the bass and sub-bass hit.
