Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Appreciation Thread! - Page 206

post #3076 of 4044
I just bought a pair of Denon D5000 from eBay for 600 used like new, according to the seller they were used for only about 10 hours but I'm just so regretful, I bought them on impulse and I think I paid too much for them. Now I'm reading about all the problems with the cups detaching because of the screws and I just feel worse lol frown.gif

The issue with detaching is very minimal and easily repaired.  The cost of most D5000's used is around $500 so you may have overpaid a little but don't sweat it.  You have an amazing headphone that's probably well worth the $.

I'm running Purepiper DAC-A1 with XMOS Usb to SPDIF card,and a felix filter, with a lot of mods, directly from dac without any amping

removed copper shielding because its too heavy,extremely heavy, heavier than whole cable including furutech plug

not very flexible though since its wire, teflon wire, and only single core in each wire.

willing to hear any kind of suggestions :L3000: sorry for my English. Not very interested in wooden-cup-provided sound but would really like to try out some thick pads :P

Are you sure you have good connections? The silver is supposed to make a headphone brighter in sound, but it isn't supposed to kill the low end.

Thanks, I was starting to have buyer's remorse lol, and I can't tell my family how much I paid for these amazing headphones... they just wouldn't understand. Anyway I'm really excited to compare them to my D600.

I  had bought mine in US because in Montreal they were selling them $900.00 .Thats crazy.

$900 that's insane, you could buy a Fostex TH600 for that, or a D7000 

post #3084 of 4044
I've always been curious about the DX000 headphones. After getting a pair of DT990s and liking them quite a bit but was underwhelmed by the bass (the way some people talk about them really makes me wonder) I found a pair of D2000s. I hope the bass isn't all hype like the Beyers.

Bought my D7000's for $850 on here.  was right after they were discontinued.  Has the MarkL mods and angle pads at least.  I know I'd take a hit if I ever try and sell them, but I can rationalize the depreciation.

They are not hype. I've had both a DT770 32ohm LE and a Darth Beyer based off the 80ohm DT770 and have had all the Denons. No contest. I'll stay with Denons.

BTW, who has a Denon broken pair? Im looking for a shell (no drivers or cable) for a DIY project :-)

just checked very wire's connections and i found two problems :

the furutech plug, i didn't pull out the head completely so the sound very weird because didn't connect correctly in the female plug

the dac's latest driver problem, just tried phone usb out and no such problem

 

anyway, the silver cables sounds like flying, opposite to sub woofers

post #3089 of 4044

I've yet to try a Silver cable... Think I might stick with Copper till I can go modular with my headphones. Once modular I can start trying all sorts of different cables

Yup, you are right. Not hype at all smily_headphones1.gif.

Just got them in the mail and the bass is great. Just what I was looking for. I wouldn't say they replace my DT990 but they make for a nice compliment. They may however replace my K550s. I'm impressed by the openess and the detail in the D2000s. Some describe them as a little veiled but I'm not hearing that at all, they have just as much detail as the K550 with more bass too.
