Description:

Would you like to have a detachable cable on your headphones?? We now? offer this modification and you have a choice of connectors, too! Read on.....

Here's how it works -? We remove (and will re-use) the original factory stock cable and install a rugged gold-plated miniplug on? the headphone end? (standard or locking, your choice). We then install a high quality female jack in the headphones. The jack we use was selected from all of the available connectors because if its reliability and ruggedness. It was the only one small enough that uses miniature coil springs on the internal contacts. Coiled spring loaded contacts are favored over other type of contacts because they don't get loose over time and will offer a reliable connection for years.

The headphones are carefully reassembled and fully tested with the newly modified cable. This modification does not include a new cable - we re-use the factory cable. If you would like an extra factory cable, you can order a coiled one here or a straight one here. If you would like a cable upgrade, we have them here and here.

Why do we offer two connector choices?

The threaded, locking connector makes a secure connection and the cable can not be accidentally pulled out of the headphones. The cable will stay connected to the headphones until you intentionally remove it. This a good choice if you want the ultimate in connector stability and ruggedness.

The non-locking connector is also secure, and has a snug fit into the headphone jack (because of the high quality female jack mentioned above), but if you were to trip or pull on the cable hard enough, it will detach from the headphones without damaging either the cable or the headphones.

Either way, you will be able to use your headphones with the modified cable, or any other standard cable with a 3.5mm (1/8") plug on the end that plugs into the headphones.

The cable modification carries a 2 year warranty on the modification components and labor from The Sound Professionals. However, performing this modification will void the manufacturer???s warranty.

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic-sounding headphones. Period. 00/00/0000
Reviewer: A viewer   from USA
A-T’s new flagship ATH-M50 Studio Monitor Headphones deliver the whole truth: natural response through the entire frequency range–no little white lies smudging out or hyping sounds along the way. Since their introduction in January ’07, they’ve acquired quite a following. Listen in…

5 out of 5 stars it’s the most exciting thing to come along in year 00/00/0000
Reviewer: Frank Filipetti — GRAMMY®-winning mixer and produc   from USA
Is there anything less glamorous to talk about in the studio than headphones? Ok…apart from mic stands. Well, not any more. In fact, based on the comments of artists I’ve had try the ATH-M50 headphone, it’s the most exciting thing to come along in years. Yeah, I know…tube gear is great, and that new pre you just got is amazing. But think about this…the performance of your artist has a lot more to do with the mix they hear in the headphones than some vintage channel strip you just spent three grand on. Artists who have for years had to tolerate low-quality headphones for high-volume use simply don’t have to compromise anymore. These are fantastic-sounding headphones, period. There just isn’t anything better you can do for your artist than to give them a pair of these

5 out of 5 stars they translate to the outside world 00/00/0000
Reviewer: Ed Cherney — GRAMMY® and TEC award-winning produce   from usa
Although I have tried, I've never felt comfortable mixing or referencing my mixes using headphones. They have usually been too hypy, bright, bassy...and uncomfortable on my head and hot on my ears. I would try, but would only get frustrated and confused and sometimes would just not bother. Since I got my ATH-M50 headphones, I have actually enjoyed mixing and referencing with headphones. My M50 headphones are now an integral part of my process....they absolutely translate with my speakers, but most importantly, they translate to the outside world. With so many music lovers around the world listening through their headphones to iPods, and other personal portable players, it is now more important than ever to know what your work is going to sound like in the real world; with my ATH-M50 headphones, I am more confident than ever that my work will be heard the way I intended it to be heard
