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.
(If theres a will theres a way) .is it the threads inside the pivot assembly that are stripped if so it might be possible to drill a little bigger and tap the whole or maybe the existing hole is a standard size and would just have to tap the hole. from the looks of it the thread would be in pivot. if you had pics of the parts involve it would help to figure out what can be done if anythingi .post #2388 of 419712/2/12 at 11:52amQuote:Originally Posted by DS21
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.
What's the re cabling scam?post #2389 of 419712/2/12 at 12:54pmpost #2390 of 419712/2/12 at 7:13pmpost #2391 of 419712/2/12 at 10:15pmQuote:Originally Posted by MIKELAP

Yes, the screw-holes in pivot appear to be stripped. The little screw itself seems to be fine.
This forum is not exactly a reality-based place when it comes to topics such as wire-swapping and other pointless "tweaks," and there are fairly obvious pecuniary interests that make reality-denial in the rational self-interest of various actors. So beyond my previous spontaneous expression of revulsion at the thought of dealing with such scammers and my previous sentence in this paragraph, I won't say more here. Even if you try to draw me out. :)Quote:Originally Posted by gelocks
And... once again...
Thank you for the link! missed that in my search. Good that they're finally doing this now, given that I had to all but invoke FRCP Rule 23 last time I had a problem. (In the summer of 2010 the left earcup fell off, and the little washer disappeared. It took some doing to get them to just put one of the little washers in the mail.
I am confused as to how to remove the stripped piece, though. (The piece in question is the one that has the rivet-head on top of the headband flange, going through the flange to accept the screw from the earcup. It appears to be fixed in place. Does it just take a good shove?
At any rate, I ended up just putting some superglue in the screw-hole on Saturday, threading the screw in, and clamping it together for 24 hours. If by chance it holds, great. If not, good to know Denon is actually selling replacement parts now, and not just trying to get people to send their headphones back when they break. Which they will, because the build quality is as risible as the sound quality is spectacular.

Has anyone tried putting a lacquer on the D5000 cups? The D7000 cups seem to be so much easier to take care of.post #2400 of 419712/10/12 at 2:19pm
To the above, I think you could use a plastic buffing compound maybe, and bring them up to a higher gloss finish like plasticx or whatever. Not sure though, would have to ask someone who has tried it.
