Well that's up to you but often headphone masters that knows how to break into hp and fix stuff are also cable people. Some say they are recablers, some say they are repairers.

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 .

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?

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. :)

 

 

 

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.

How did you get the cap - p/n (7)-9 - off? 

post #2396 of 4197

Sold my D2000, regretted so I bought his brother - the D5000.

 

How should I take care of the wooden cups?

Very carefully biggrin.gif

 

I put wood finish / polish on them every few months.  Be careful no the rub to hard and take off the writing.

Can someone do a comparison between the stock D2000/D5000 and the Lawton D2000/D5000?

Has anyone tried putting a lacquer on the D5000 cups? The D7000 cups seem to be so much easier to take care of.

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.
