At this point aren't the D-2000s like 315 shipped out of Japan anyway.... But yeah, the $800 price point is in another big nut $$$ league...
Guilty as charged.
And absolutely not because I didn't like them, I posted in D2000 thread they were so much HD650 alike with my slight preference toward Senns better details presentation. Instead of having two phones with virtually identical signature I decide to try something different.
And I am just blown away by W5000 details, holographic soundstage and I LOVE
their bass, not the quantity which is not overwhelming (just the right amount) but quality.
How do they compare to D2000? They are very different and you need to try both to decide which one is for you. I am starting realizing that I probably need both, and have plans to get another pair and send them to Larry or go straight with D5000, depends on Skylab's testing results. But I have a feeling that both, D2000 and D5000, would benefit from silver cable to better outline midrange details and make bass tighter and probably less prominent, which makes purchase of D5000 with better but still copper stock cable kind of pointless.
If I am right and cable fixes that it's a done deal for me.
