Keep a lookout on ebay, prices have fallen on the D2000, most are under $300, a few used ones recently have gone for $210-$230...

Ok, thanks, I think I'm not getting them for that much. I just thought that there is a general opinion that they are worth much more than they cost, before they were discontinued. They also seem to have pretty bad transient response, CSD plots show that they conserve energy for about 1.5ms which is very slow compared to other headphones (for HE-500 it's less than 0.2ms).

eww eBay

 

I like to buy my headphones stricly here at head fi, my worst deal to date was the D2k. Spent to much on it, took to long to get here seller was kinda meh with his commentary BUT it was a trade of sorts... so I can't complain. Traded and HE 400 NEW Fostex T 50RP and $100, so cost e like $400 [although I paid $300 for my HE 400] sadly I got the HE 400 while the where still selling decently well xD 2 months later prices dropped

Don't get me wrong; I still love the M50's. Just looking to upgrade for in-home use to use for long periods of time. I notice with the M50's my ears get really hot and have to take them off every once and a while. Also, sometimes my M50's cuts out and the left ear goes quiet while the right still plays (only happens for about a second and I move the plug around until sound comes back). Sound wise I have no problem with the M50's, but I have heard about how great the D2000 were. Especially the bass. When amp right, the D2000 can be a monster from what I've heard. A lot tighter and cleaner compare to the M50's. All in all, I want to make my M50's my travel heaphones (airport, walking around school, etc.) while making the D2000's only in-home. I made my decision on buying the D2000's about 2 years ago but I wasn't ready to buy them since my M50's were still new to me and had them for under a year at that time. But I guess I should have bought the D2000 2 years ago lol. So, starting my search again and any suggestions would be nice.

Good closed back cans are hard to find it seems. Im glad I held onto my D5000's. Though those leak sound like they were open air headphones! Maybe keep you eye on eBay and try and pick up a good condition set of D2000's or D5000's. Not sure what else would be a good, well known, tried and true closed back back can to upgrade from the ATH-M50's. Assuming you wanted to stay closed back that is. But if you like the bass on the ATH-M50's and wanted more with the D2000's, youre probably going to want to stay closed back.

I wouldn't mind going open back since it's for home use only anyways lol. Just looking for something almost equivalent to the D2000's open or close to upgade the M50's. But I do like my bass though :L3000:.

That's a tough one, there are some bassy open backs but non on the D2ks level. The HE 400 might be for you, it's going to need a little eq though, but it's got a nice linear Sub Bass! Plus right now the HE 400 sells for around $250 used. It's a GREAT edm can

And thats exactly why I kept my D5000's! There simply isnt anything I have heard or heard of thats got more bass than those if thats what you want. Open back cans just cant build up the sound pressure enough to get that slamming bass sound. Watch ebay, get yourself a set of D2000/D5000's. Also in all the amps I have tried I really havent found that the D5000's need one. So I wouldnt plan to spend a ton of money on one for those cans.

 Pretty sure I'm going to send Martin my D2k. They've been sitting in a drawer for about a year. I already did the MarkL dampening mods to the driver, etc. They need a new cable (going with OCC) and I'm thinking about going with Black And White Ebony for the cups.

Like the D2000's?  Get a used pair (see them on our for sale board all the time) or get a D600.  I have them both.................love them both.

Thanks! I seen these before and couldn't remember the name. Just a few questions, what do you mean by eq? Also I've read that you need a pretty decent dac/amp for these, would the U-Control UCA202 be good enough (if I can use them)?
