I hear no difference with my equipment (I have both options).

No bite at work yet. I've put them up on a Swedish techgeek site for sale, for about $275. I'll give it a week, and if no one buys there, I'll let them go for the same price at head-fi (275) and you pay postage. I will send them anywhere, in any kind of protective packaging, tracking and whatnot, but you will have to pay for it.

 

Sounds like a fair deal?

@ Coq de combat: Any idea what the shipping w/ tracking would be from Sweden (it's where you are, right?) to Montreal, Canada, H2X 3J7? Do you have a link to this ad you placed for-sale ? Thanks.

I'd like to point to the relevant discussion that is going on in the Fostex TH-900 thread, about activated carbon and other modding materials: http://www.head-fi.org/t/595683/fostex-th900-impressions-discussion-thread/7815#post_10851249

 

Personally, changing the original foam in the Denon earpads for activated carbon might have been the final mod to my D2000!

It seems to be somewhere around $50 (+ extra for additional stuff like insurance, tracking, etc.) for shipping, with little to no options to choose. This does leave some haggle room for you IMO.

 

I have to say though, one guy at my workplace approached me yesterday that he started feeling a bit more warm to the idea of buying them so I'll give him 'til next friday or so. Also, I will formulate a little more detailed ad over here at head-fi as well. All in all, I wouldn't want you to pay more than $300, shipping included and so on and so forth. There's still time for haggling and dealing with that later on though.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of D5000s recently. They're fine otherwise but unfortunately the left cup does not swivel like the right one because of some bootleg fix. It's no big deal since it does not affect the sound quality in any way whatsoever. However I'd like to have these in the best condition as possible because I absolutely love them and will have them for a long time.

Does anyone here have any ideas where I could get it fixed? What sort of shops deal with stuff like this? I read that the mechanism behind these swivels is a complex one and difficult to get at so I'd rather not try fixing it myself especially when I have the money to spare to get it fixed by more competent people.

I would check out the Lawton Audio website

Heads up guys - Martin from Martin Custom Audio is moving into a new house and says he is way behind on emails so if you have designs on getting work done by him............be patient. 

 

The man is an artist but this is a hobby business to him and he recently had a child (well, his wife did) so nothing happens fast with his work.  It is worth the wait tho.

Martin does amazing work, he's a true artist.  His prices are also fairly reasonable.  He's gonna have to setup the shop again at the new place...
