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!

Do you think there will ever be a MK3 version of the Massdrop T50RP?

Have they fixed the weak hinge yet?? I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of these for months now but I keep hearing about the breaking hinges and I don’t want to buy until that’s fixed... I also would almost rather buy a used pair with the attached stock cable so I can do the mod myself and be able to actually swap cables with other cans. Thoughts?

What’s the point of having removable cables if they have a proprietary connector? That defeats the whole purpose.

I'd be all over these if they had a shorter 3.5mm cable. Are there any 3rd party options or has anyone successfully modded their stock cable?

Is VAT the same as customs fees? The EU audiophile collection already has VAT included

mine was broken after eight months of very light use. not even up 10 hrs in total use per week, always keep in the box but the connector between the headband and one earcup broke, no idea what to do now. Send the request but no reply.

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.

Hello, i use the Lawton mod level 1.The tune up change it better the hights are not so high is a little bit cooler after.In the package the Base are not so sheep on the wood. Is damp the Base better and you can keep it.The Mid are so better after,all is clear.Spezific are the Angel Pads.Good quality, great build,it change the Signature a little bit down when you compare with the Original Pads.I found not so punchi.But after hours of Listing the Lawton pads comes better all is smooth,calm and warm.For me personly i miss a little bit something and i have buy a Schiit Loki and with him you can adjust what do you miss. For example the Punchi Sound from the Orginal Pad from Fostex, with the Loki i have adjust it on the Lawton pads, and now the Headphone is compfortable of hours, Great Sound.I don‘t regreat it. When i must buy a new Headphone i rebuy the same with the Lawton Mod. I am not sure or i do to change the Cabel to a Lawton cable.I would but is a little bit expensiv, and not sure they brings a punch in Sound.

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.
