Hmm, I can't remember the model name, I know MuppetFace has the catalog snippet around though.  The catalog doesn't list pricing though, it's just the wholesale catalog, so you'd have to find a Japanese distributor/retailer for it for that.  And the current yen conversion rate wink.gif

hehe. tell me about it. I do all my shopping online aside from groceries. 

 

I'm still bit shocked I got them at that price. The store was full of what I'd call fashion headphones like beats etc Then there were the D2000 on a rack in the corner and the box covered in dust. 

 

I've burned them in 30hrs+ and used them a bit too. They really can kick out some bass!

I might purchase a D5000 soon, but there's something that caught my attention, I read that beyer gel pads improve it's isolation significantly. I'm planning on using these at home because of their semi-open nature, but will beyer gel pads make it's isolation as good and most closed headphones? I also heard that there are some bad things that happen when you put the gel pads in them, but the only one I remember is that your ears may get hot while listening to them.

Wild guess here, gel pads would kill the sound and the bass. The denons are really sensitive to pad changes, many people do not like any of the aftermarket pads available over stock even.

 

Also I think a lot of the leakage comes from that acoustic optimizer ring around the cup, but I could be wrong. I tried sealing it off once and it sounded really awful.

oh well, I was intending on using it at home anyway.

Agreed, the acoustic optimizer ring is where most of the sound leaks in, and that has to stay open.

What is a reasonable starting bid price for D5000's on ebay?  They're in perfect condition, and I've only used them for 5 hours or less.

Some peole are selling them for $800 now.

Check and see what the completed listings show and then start somewhere a bit below that.

If they are in perfect condition, I would put it at $400+ but that's just me.

I've seen them sell higher than that on eBay and on these boards.

 

If I sell mine, I probably due for $400 or less since they are not in perfect condition.

So, my D2000's broke. The socket on the right end of the band will no longer hold the screw.

 

Anything else comparable with but without the D2000's risible build quality (the left side had come apart a few times, but this is the first issue with the right) today for reasonable money? Or should I just superglue the thing together and deal? They are great-sounding cans.

I'm shocked that they still have the FIIO E10 in stock at that price...

May wanna consider sending it over to martin at martincustom audio, or atleast emailing him or lawton audio to see if they know any good options for it rather than trashing them.

I didn't see anything at the Martin site about this problem. They offer new cups but don't have anything to deal with Denon's horribly-made unipivot. 

 

But there's another thing, admittedly. Honestly, I'd rather repeatedly drive over my D2000's than give a cent to anyone involved in the "recabling" scam.
