Black Scorpion Black Hornet 3 Levels of Headphone Upgrades. We make the world’s best phones even better.

Lawton Upgrade Packages: 3 Levels

While each of our individual upgrades is very effective on its own, and we happily provide any product or service separately, we’ve grouped our offerings into three handy packages that represent the best strategies for upgrading your Fostex for any budget or ambition level.

Level 1

Our basic mod recommended for all phones is called a Level 1. It consists of our exclusive Tune-Up, plus a pair of our custom lambskin leather Angle Pads. Together, they provide the largest degree of improvement for least expense from our menu of options. Our foundation mod, start here!






Level 2

Level 2 includes all of Level 1 plus adds a pair of our Custom Wood Chambers. Our latest generation Chambers are like high-tech speaker cabinets for your cans, second to none in terms of beauty, function and sound.  We have well over 25 glorious natural ToneWoods to choose from.






Level 3

Level 3 includes all of Level 2 and adds your choice of deluxe custom headphone cable, made to your length with your desired plug at the end to connect to any device in the world. Our Black Hornet delivers unmatched high-performance at an attractive price, while our Black Scorpion provides the best possible connection for the most demanding systems. We hard-wire and offer detachables!

Level 1 Upgrade Package Pricing

When you send your phones in for Lawton Audio’s professional installation, the cost for your Level 1 is $199 including all parts and labor.

The Works! Level 3 Upgrade Package Pricing

Our Level 3 comes with everything we do, including your choice of deluxe Custom Cable. The total for your Level 3 depends on the selections you make for your Custom Wood Chambers and your Custom Cable. Our most basic Level 3 package with Instrument Grade Chambers and a short length of our Black Hornet Cable starts at $835 installed.

How Do I Find The Total Cost For My Level 3 Package?

It’s easy. Start with your Level 2 package price and add the cost of your choice of Custom Cable and deluxe plug. We have two Custom Cables, high-value Black Hornet and premium Black Scorpion, plus a variety of deluxe plugs to connect to any device. Pricing for our cables is found on the product page for each. Simply find your desired cable length and its cost, then select your preferred plug and add these together. That is the total cost for your cable. All installation labor and materials are included in your total price, no surprises.
