Which Headphone Installation Type to choose?

You will find as you brouse through the headphone listings on Moon Audio’s website, that in most cases we offer 3 custom audio cable attachment methods.

The first option is Stock. Stock means there is no cable upgrade and you preffer to recieve the phones in stock form, no cable upgrade. You will also need to choose the Stock option from the pull down menu for both the Cable and Connector.  If you want the stock cable connectors to be upgraded, you will have to call Moon Audio for pricing. The connector options are for the upgrade cables only but we will always accomodate you if we can as we love our customers.  🙂

The second installation type is the Hardwired Split Mod. What Moon Audio does with this installation type is we remove the stock cable and hardwire or solder the upgrade cable to the drivers. If the headphones currently use a single cable entry, then we create a connection option where there was none previously.   I know, its pretty cool…you might call our engineers “artists” as its all done by hand, every day here at Moon Audio.  We Customize high end audio here every day…and its our pleasure and yours…we hope. 🙂

For Example, the Beyerdynamic T70’s stock cable is attached to the left cup only and a signal wire is sent through the headband to the right ear cup. Moon Audio removes this wire, cuts a whole in the right cup, and we add 2 new entry grommets.  Now both sides look uniform and the Beyerdynamic T70 headphones look as if they were born this way. 🙂  Moon Audio then runs each leg of the cable directly to each driver.  It is to the headphones benefit to run the signal wire directly to each driver to eliminate any unbalanced effects on the signal path.

The Blue Dragon Headphone Cable now enters both cups on the DT1350 and is soldered directly to the drivers.  The cross cable has been removed and the holes in the top of the cup have been plugged.

More on the 3rd installation type called the Detachable Split Mod tomorrow.

  1. How long it takes effect in about Beyerdynamic T70 Split Mod Hardwired origin and that the connectors are used for caps, which is more suitable to be or mini XLR plug.
    I need to know because I want to take the trip to a friend new york to get my headphones to make that arrangement, and I seize add up Black Dragon V2 Headphone Cable 1, 2 meters. And if so what would be the total value

    1. It takes about 3 days to do once we receive your T70 headphones. My recommendation would be the Black Dragon V2 headphone cable. This will cost $345 for a 5ft Black Dragon V2 Headphone cable with Mini 4pin XLRs to 1/4″ Furutech Plug and detachable mod on the Beyer T70.

  2. Hello
    Wonder how much to get my DT1350 recabled to balanced cable? Which of your cables do u recommend for the headphones?
    Please guve me price for the blue and silver terminates to 2.5 balanced
    My email [email protected]

    1. I would recommend a Blue Dragon V3 to be hardwired with a 2.5mm TRRS Gold balanced Moon Audio mini plug for AK. For 5ft this would run $245 plus return shipping.
      Please send your headphones to us with your contact info a note of the mod and we will send you a PayPal Bill once we have your phones in hand.
