sometime the desire returns

the dx-2000 is pratically the same headphone?just more expensive?

Same headphone as far as I know, just a reissue for the Asian market with a lovely very dark brown wood cups. I am not sure about the price, though.

post #2223 of 2846

the price is higher.

well. just a comercial release

post #2224 of 2846

I am impatiently  waiting for the DX3000...:D

I wouldn't hold my breath. I'm afraid that JVC might have done what sony did and stop making high end headphones. DX1000 has been flagship for a very long time. Sony's last attempt to make a high end headphone was mdr-sa5000.

Especially since the DX1000 didn't exactly break sales records...

post #2227 of 2846

Yep... It's a shame. Well, maybe there is hope. Demand for expensive headphones is bigger these days, so maybe JVC and sony come up with something.

I've always been curious about those cans.

 

Based on what you guys have said there they seem to be pretty quirky, and I like that.

 

If anyone here's looking for a temporary trade with an HD650, I'm in :D

With everybody right and left producing expensive headphones and the growing popularity of this hobby I would be very surprised if JVC hasn't' got something under the hood. I love the brand for its innovation and for producing unusual products.

Even Sony is rumoured to have a soon a new flagship to succeed its R10.

I hope you are right. I've been hoping that ha-sz2000 was some sort of a test run for jvc's new flagship. Would be awesome if someone finally got things right with multiple driver headphones. Maybe final audio design allready did with pandora, I have not yet heard that one. Definately sounds intriguing and innovative. Some people say that headphones have evolved alot, but compared to other technology I don't think so.

 

Portables and iems have sure come a long way but fullsize cans not so much. I love and appreciate what companies such as hifiman and audeze have done with the orthos but other than that not much has happened. Sennheiser came up with ring driver and beyerdynamic designed more powerfull magnet. Of course saying that is over simplifying things but seriously who can say that T1 is a huge leap from DT880? 

 

Most companies in headphone business are not that huge and are working on limited funds. Companies such as JVC, Sony, Philips and latest to enter the headphone game, Samsung...Could all create the best headphone ever if they decided to. If possible I would gladly support smaller business but the fact is that with more money you get things done. It's a real shame if companies like jvc and sony don't push the limits but instead settle on making products only for average consumer.

in the past, when brands like sony(es series), technics, pioneer, etc. etc. made high-end products, the other brands(with some exceptions) could only watch.

today, unfortunately, the tendency is to invest in the market of large numbers.

I am taking my DX1000 with me in my grave, they sometimes hangs for months without use, but I always return to them..

 

Maybe JVC is to honest to claim they have done something new and spetacular to their drivers, the truth is that there really has not happend much the last 20 years, if there had happend something groundbreaking in the teknologi a 10 year old headphone would sound terrible..

 

Just try sit down and watch a VHS tape on your big screen TV a lot of breakthroughs have been done in the visual tekonologi, but a 25 year old headphone still sounds good, there is a resaon for that...
