Does anyone know where or how I can buy a pair of these without waiting for the drop?

Hello Chan, It seems that the server is not receiving email, any other way of contact? Thanks
I didn't buy the SFXI, but I would've if the Teaks bundle hadn't been so limited.... Sure hope these drop again soon!
Sorry if this has been answered already but has anyone found a cable to purchase as a replacement? My left side has almost completely stopped working and I could really use a new one asap. Do they sell replacements? @chan_emu
Hi Folks,
1) We have shipped the headphones about a week ago.
2) Most of you should have received them by now.
3) I have given the Denver's Rocky Mountain Audio Fest ( RMAF ) a miss this year as I am involved in the launch of Creative Super X-FI.

@SupabaIs it a bundle or sold separately?
chan_emu
Hi Chan do you have a contact email address.? I have been trying to figure out how to buy a pair of E-MU Teak?
Anyone knows how often these drop?
Karimk
Every couple of months. It's usually by the time the current orders start shipping

Thanks
Has anyone who owns two pairs of wood cups for this headphone know if the screws strip the wood? I am curious about getting rosewood cups for my teaks but I'd like to be able to swap them out occasionally without worry of stripping the screw-holes in the wood.
Hi fellow Teak owners.
Is there a balanced 2.5mm cable that anyone has managed to get working with the Teaks?
My Cowon Plenue R has a 2.5mm balanced out and I am very keen to get the Teaks running out of that. It tightens up the bass and delivers more drive which I want to achieve.
Thank you

That sounds amazing. How much did it set you back if you don't mind me asking?
Also, do the 2.5mm plugs fit nicely I to the earcups?
Matt_M_M
The 2.5mm plugs are an extended version so they will work with anything but they are not as attactive as the original. I have several headphones that take the 2.5mm so it was easy to justify. They were about $70 US which is a little rich, but having said that a substantial upgrade.
Will these probably drop again before Christmas? I cannot purchase them this drop as my budget does not allow for the price at this time, but I would like to have them this year hopefully.
Niacies
they usually drop right after the most recent drop finishes shipping. this current batch dropped less than a week after i got mine in the mail, and i think the one before that was similar as well
Gsh2000
Alright, thanks for the info!
Reposting the "granny mod". I like my cans in mint condition so a little wool sewed in place to protect that headband. You can get these on ebay but there are snap buttons that can damage the band, a little scissoring action and a needle and you're good to go to the nursing home.

I would love to hear from anyone who has swapped the teak cups for the other fostex cups. I understand the teak cups have the largest cups inside, and I guess I wouldn't want to tighten the stage any more but am curious to hear your opinions.

Yes, the ebony is the one cup that always stood out to me as Hmm... what will that bass be like? I guess since getting into headphones I know theres a chance at experiencing a song I love in a richer way and that's the temptation for me, so the ebony makes me raise my eyebrow and wonder. I think i'll venture into planars before I invest in cups though, spread that disposable income evenly.
LMAONAISE
Yeah I think that would probably be the smarter move, planar and electrostatic (stax) would probably give you a more different experience and let you explore different side of things.
I think I tunnel vision myself with Denon AH-D2000 then E-Mu Teak and Fostex TH-X00. Amps/Dacs I've tried are E10K (sold), Fulla 1 (returned), UDAC3, and recently SMSL M3 (returned).
Looking back maybe I should've just spend money on more different things. Lol oh well I guess I live and learn.
So ive barely had these a week and the right hinge is already extremely loose, despite being gentle with them. Is there anything i can do to fix this myself, or do i have to try to email @chan_emu? Worried to even keep using them.
Edit: So I see how to fix it, but I dont have anything small enough to use between the cup and the screw to tighten it back up.
Edit 2: Mini crisis over. Fairly simple to fix, and it let me figure out how to change out ear cups if i decide to buy some others. If it happens to anyone else, remove the earpad, and you'll see four screws where the pad clicks in to. Remove those screws, the ear cup comes off, and you have a bit more space to use a small screwdriver (luckily just a small phillips screw) to tighten it back up. Bit of a bummer though, really. Even more so since it doesn't seem like the cup sits as tightly as it did before taking it off.

You are fast. Before I can comment you already fix the problem.
Your steps to solve the problem is correct. You sure have good craftsmanship.
Please contact us at support@emu.com. We will like to gather more finding and feedback the problem to Foster.
chan_emu
Okay, will do. E-mail has been sent.
Generally, I prefer a neutral to slightly warm pair of headphones; among the headphones I love, there are very few exceptions. This is one such exception. The V-curve is not violent enough to induce simultaneous vomiting and ear bleeding, and though the stage is incredibly small, the imaging is rock solid. I love these dearly, and for the price, I think they're better than th-900's, which I've just sold because I use these more. The th-900s provide more stage, and do certain things better, but with the right combination of pads, these close the gap more than the difference in price would suggest.
My only caveat is that the thx00 Mahogany sounds almost imperceptibly similar, and if the interchangeable cable or ability to change cups doesn't phase you, they may be the better value. Still, having had both, I kept these. To me, those mechanical differences mattered, but YMMV

Makes sense I hated the 900s when I first got them. I have since changed amps/dacs and modded the damping inside the cup, had the wiring upgraded, and changed the pads on them. Lots of work to get there but they are incredible now. Hopefully these come close.
Exploitedpixels
Hpretty similar, but the th900 stage is expansive by comparison, with more bass impact, which is a bit looser, and a bit more bite to the treble.
Anybody else buying these this time around?
Wondering if anybody has the Teaks and the Fostex Ebony? How do they compare?

If you're interested, I posted a similar question regarding the E-MU Teak vs. Fostex Ebony last year and received some informative responses, particularly from PopZeus. > https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-fostex-tr-x00-ebony-headphones/talk/1797979
JTrubs
Thanks, that definitely helps.
I love mine so much. Just beautiful, visually and sonically. Also, I was packing for a trip tonight and thought I'd use the little pelican case to store the cable. Pop it open for the first time, there's another cable already in there, and another 1/4" adapter. Don't think I've seen that mentioned anywhere, and don't recall it on the drop page.
ryanaeh
You may have just gotten lucky, my case was empty.
RobertTho87
mine was also empty, he probably got the extra cable by mistake
Got mine yesterday, and I'm super happy so far.
Sadly, the balanced cable I picked up for them appears to be incompatible, and I'm wishing I'd read the comments here more closely before grabbing it. :(
Edit for those coming across this later: you either need a *correctly wired* 2.5mm TRS cable, or any 2.5mm TS cable.

The Venture cables for HiFiMan that drop on a regular basis are fully compatible. They use a 2.5mm mono (TS) plug. Work like a charm too.
logic
just tried mine with a periapt cable and it works, so at least that one is compatible
This is so hard. Mine are waiting for me at home but I don’t get home for a few days. I want these on my head so hard right now.

Good to know. I’m so ready for these 2 days. Maybe I can fly home early. Worth it Ha
Aech661
Oh no. That’s a scary thought. I was scared so I just had FedEx hold them till I get back.
Got mine today
Looks like the latest drop has started shipping. Just received email from FedEx about an International Priority package from E-MU.
Very much so yay.

How much did they charge for import?
NickNickNickNickNick
17.08CAD, much less than I was expecting.
Three times during last three months I have mailed or filled a form in their webpage to ask about replacement cable. No answer. I-m not happy with the cable's connectors durability and customer service. Can anyone recommend other source for quality replacement cable?

Thanks, I'll look into those. I've been using the cable that came with my m1060, but i need to send those back for repair and disliked the stock emu cable.
RobertTho87
that stock cable is pretty but feels loose at the connection on mine.
I know it's still a bit early from the ship date, but has anyone heard anything about these shipping yet?
Gsh2000
They just started shipping. At the bare minimum the labels have been created.
my housing for the left channel connector broke. is it possible to get a replacement?
watmough
Sorry to missed your msg. We would like to understand more about your problem. Please write to support@emu.com we will get back to you as soon as possible.
chan_emu
its all good, i fixed it.
Are these ever coming back?

Are you xxx@xxxline.net ?? We have been trying to reply your email but failed. Do you have another email address ? Please write to us again.
chan_emu
Yes, that's me, I'm not sure why it failed, that's odd. I'll write you and include a new email address right now. Thanks for contacting me on here, I appreciate it very much.
Although we all have choices to make. I’ve spent a lot of money on 3 HPs. Maasdrop IEM , EMU Teak (earlier drop) , Massdrop Focal Elex. I don’t earn well too enough for these purchases. Trust me I feel like money well spent. No Regrets. ( Waiting for Elex to arrive)
TerenzzZ
Plus you can buy different wood cups and change up the sound a bit
Oops, last day, and I still can’t decide -,-
Paulng
I was just like you except I decided to take a chance. Until now, I've never been proud. It's worth every penny. Those wood cups are gorgeous.
elcycer
I'm in debt now :( I will block MD :(( forever
For those looking for cable replacement/upgrade, HE400i , HE560 & HE400s use the same connection.
benchan2a01
HD700 cables are also compatible. I'm using balanced cable at the moment. They're great.
Anxious to get my pair!! Congratz on all the other getting a pair of Teak's also!
Received my headphones and they're beautiful. However, I upgraded to a balanced trrs 2.5mm and the cable I was sent doesn't work. I'll update with the response.
Edit - just got back to me and are sending a new cable out. I'm hoping this one works :).
Edit 2 - got the new one and it works great :).
There isn't much out there about how these handle different sources. Anyone have experience with multiple amps?
I would love to trade one for my tuned HD700.
Question about how the TRS 2.5mm connectors are wired (I saw Zeos' youtube review): The use of the RS bit is still the same, or is there more more compatibility with other 3rd party by having both R and R being ground?
fritsk
Probably the same, but I can't confirm since my Teak is from the firsts drops (I bought it second hand, though). My advice to you is some custom cables with mono plug (just tip/ground on the plug). I'm using now veclan cables with "he-400i" termination and works perfect with my Teak, Hd-700 cables generally works too.

Okidoki, thanks for the details!
