They sound great with my Little Dot I+.

I changed the opamps and the tubes from stock though.

Well, I got my D2000 a few days ago I gotta say - I love'm. I only have about 25 hours break-in but even with that I think the overall sound is great - very balanced - with the bottom end sounding really good and not as heavy or loose as some have mentioned. I dont listen to too much bass heavy material or play at high volumes, so at moderate levels I think the detail and balance are quite good - especially for $200. I also thought their transient response was good and the high end was really nice but without being harsh. These are keepers for sure!

I have the d2000's and Cambridge audio dacmagic but with no amp

what will be the best choice for under £230
post #154 of 4044
I really wonder what an amp/dac would do for the d2000's. I EQed my d2000's how I wanted and they sound perfect to my unique listening preference.

Just got my paycheck and now is the moment of truth for me as far as markl mod goes, so I figured I'd ask here.

I listen primarily to less detail oriented styles of music (mostly modern rock from hard rock to punk to alternative to acoustic, but a little classical rock and some hip hop), and enjoy a smooth, musical sound, and don't want anything sterile or analytical like K701s.

I enjoy the stock D5000 sound, but I find the bass a little bit overpowering and the mids a little recessed. Not as bad as some people make it out to be, only a little bit, and I still VERY much enjoy the stock sound of the cans.

How much does the markl mod change stock sound, and do you think the change would be for the better or for the worse with the types of music I listen to?

Also, I've read about "cupped hands" mids, but only in regards to MD5000DE, not standard MD5000 or MD5000 with custom cups. Do you think the custom wood cups I have would solve that issue?

Hi Neil,

I received my D2000 yesterday and I realized the same problem as yours. For my D2000, the right side sounds louder than the left. I had to compensate the volume for left in order to have a proper balance using the windows mixer, otherwise the overall soundstage is skewed to the right.

Does anyone else experience the same issue? I am wondering if exchanging the item will help. Btw, this is my first post on Head-Fi. Nice to meet you all!

Welcome to Head-fi, kaichun. Sorry about your wallet, credit card statement, business foreclosure, and mortgaging of all your remaining assets to purchase a pair gold-plated K1000's. (You'll see what I mean by this time next year. )

I just wanted to also ring in and say that I am a pleased new owner of a pair of D2000's. I love them. Simple as that. So comfortable and good with many different types of music. Better than my previous Shure SRH-840's, as best I recall. And no unbalanced loudness problems to speak of!

Not mine. But that's an interesting observation. I have never noticed the mismatched loudness until you mentioned it, so I did some tests, but then again they all came out negative.

And also I will chime in and say I'm content w/ my d2000. The cans are an interesting change of pace from my ad900 and does the job right when I'm in for some drum music and alike. Now onto d7000 sometime in the future...

It will certainly drive them to audible levels and power them decently. Obviously better amps will give better sound, but they should do fine.
post #163 of 4044
Well I finally did it! I've been reading all I could here about closed headphones and it just seemed that the denon's were what I'm looking for so I was just about to order a new set of d2000's for 221 amd saw a used set of d5000's here for 275. I thought for 50 bucks more I'd get the d5000's. Hope they pair well with my mkIII and sound as good as everyone says. Can't wait to get them to try them out!!
post #164 of 4044
They should pair ok with the MKIII, but Denons will sound MUCH better out of a SS or hybrid amp than a tube.

Regardless though it should sound nice, enjoy your purchase.
post #165 of 4044
Any suggestions on ss or hybrid amps ( hybrids that use the same tubes as my MKIII would be nice) in the 0 t0 200$ range for Denons.
