We get a lot of requests to modify headphones to make them balanced, so much so we have begun offering for sale some of the most common headphones that we modded for balanced use. Love the sound of the Audio Technica's but cannot drive them fully balanced with that Onkyo DP-X1? No problem, get a modded set from us. Includes balanced cable of your choice- about 4 feet long, selectable from the drop downs above.
While all headphones are "used," (and without manufacturer's warranty), we provide a 60 day repair (or refund if repair is not possible) warranty in case something should happen. We may or may not have the original box/packaging, check the description below for details.
Audio Technica ATH-M50x
This headphone, commonly used in studios and for live recording, has been carefully dissembled and modified with a new internal connector to accept balanced cables. We use a 2.5mm TRRS jack for this headphone, it is fully balanced and backwards compatible with the original 2.5mm TRS twist-lock cables which are also included. Twist lock functionality on the original cables (and balanced cable) are fully preserved. You would not be able to tell this modified unit from the original. Original manuals, and all materials are included (such as original cables and pouch), but no original box- sorry!
Bowers & Wilkins P7 (B&W P7)
This small and lightweight headphone has incredible sound quality. While it comes with a detachable cable, its not balanced out of the box. This is a pain to take apart, but we have figured out how and spent the time to carefully modify this unit by meticulous disassembly and replacement of the internal connector, rewiring the earcups correctly in the process. The original cable still works and the cables can be exchanged whenever the user wishes. Headphones are in great condition hard to tell they are not new. Includes the following: P7 headphones, original universal cable (no mic), balanced cable of your choice, 4 feet long std wire, original B&W pouch and literature (no box).
