I received a unit with cosmetic flaws, so I asked for a replacement. The new unit makes a crackling sound in the right cup when I move my head or jaw. I received a second replacement, but it also makes a crackling sound in the right cup. It's not every time I move my head or jaw and it's a little fainter, though. Was I just lucky with the first headphone? Is this sound normal? It's getting awkward asking for new replacements...

Mine do not have crackling sound when I move my head.
Maybe you can open up and tighten the screwa holding the wooden cup.
How's the bass?

Bass is emphasized.
Best to try with bass heavy demo songs on youtube.
Not as good as planar bass but provides more volume.
Take a second here to see what your Ebonies can really do-- these cans are Super Sex!

Those who applied a Lawton driver dampening modification, please share your impressions! Was it a trade? Did the headphones loose something in sound quality, or the mod only made them sound better with no disadvantages?

I'm interested to know as well.
I bought and sold mine almost immediately. They were so boosted from mid bass down that they were boomy to me. Plus the cable was so long, heavy, and annoying. I lost $150 on this deal. I even bought pads before I decided to sell mine, so now am stuck with those. I emailed Dekoni, but they ignored me.

You said all the things I wanted to say.
Wow happens instantly.
If it did not happen the moment you put on these cans then these are not for you.
They were not for me either...
I think the X00 suits EDM quite well... it's not that the mids are completely recessed its more that this headphone is a bit W-shaped in it's frequency response. That can create some oddities on some tracks (Bump at 30hz, 1khz, 10khz with dips at 600 hz and 5.5khz for Mahogany). This is not a neutral can and will definitely be preference dependent. I agree that you will get a general feel for the headphone in the first 5 hours, no major changes will be noticed after that. I also don't use the term burn-in unless I am talking about tubes. With the excursion possible from this driver and the material used (bio-cellulose.. essentially paper "grown" over a form in a lab) I thought the bass tightened significantly over the first ten hours. If a headphone is "pretty-good" upon initial listen it may or may not improve a tad with time, if you first impulse is WTF is this!... time to put it up for sale or return.

Edit: I noticed very similar behavior in my other headphones that also utilize a bio-cellulose driver.
i'd like to hear from some who have these Ebnony headphones and also more premium priced (senn 800s etc)
just wondering how these stick up to more pricey cans for balance, detail, resolution, etc.

i mean i do agree with 'you get what you pay for' for the most part, so i don't expect these to be at par or better than
cans costing 2-3x more...just would like to hear from people who have multiple cans (esp more pricey) and why
they still enjoy these Ebonys.

thanks for this...thing is, i hardly listen to cans these days, or my iems...so while i would love to upgrade (in theory) and buy some focal clear cans, and get a nice amp (though i have a chord mojo and a tube hp maple tree plus amp: ear plus hd), the reality is that i don't listen to them much at all..so maybe i'll just keep them and use them when i rarely do.

I have TH-X00 ebony and HD800. Very different headphones. I like both a lot, but each have different roles. X00 are good sounding and versatile cans. They even sound good just plugged into my phone. In stock form the HD800s are flawed, but have extraordinary potential. With proper EQ, the HD800s sound incredible and have nice holographic "out of your head" sound. X00 have a more closed sound, but don't require EQ to shine (don't notice huge difference when applying EQ to flatten frequency response - the plots confirm this). X00 aren't great for detail retrieval, especially compared to HD800. If I just want something that sounds good with many genres and no fuss, I'll grab the X00s. If I want to pick out subtle nuances of complex music or want a large sound-stage, I reach for the HD800s.
A good test track for your TH-X00s whenever you get them!

Hello Mate :)

At first I thought why would someone ask on the Fostex Purplehearts Thread as to why I was posting here so I teleported here to find tha... Well... Little awkward.... Face Palm.. Wrong Thread and Section...Must be an awaeed for ao much forum wrongness!!?!?! ! Thanks for zane helping me out! Whilst here I have to say the Purpleheart cups are stunning as in the Ebony.
Are the Ebony more dense than PH? Is your low end exquisite? Maybe even darker? Tasty if so.

Peace to my Fostex brothers & sisters. You all know you should of bought Purplehearts deep down lol!!

If you are still looking for a case, CaseBudi XL is a great case.
