Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread! - Page 143

post #2131 of 4321

Hey guys, anyone know where to buy the D5000 for a cheap price (say $400) that will actually ship to Australia? I can't find a store anywhere, Amazon has such tempting prices... except none of them ship to Australia :(

Maybe fine someone selling them on eBay who ships worldwide?

You would be surprised what pads fit on what headphones.  I recently got the Lawton Angle pads for my D2k and put my old stock D2k pads on a really old pair of Audio Technica ATH-A500s (pretty much the same frame as A700/A900).

I have a D2000, all stock and I'll get the pads if they improve the sound. Mp4nation is selling the hm5 pads for $17/pair.

 

Even if HM5 pads fit, how it will help

 

they should be more or less like stock D2000 pads, can you please give link for mmayer167's post , was not able find it

Thanks, ordered a pair from MP4Nations smile.gif


Even If I do not like them on D2K, I will be able to play with this mod without messing Stock D2K pads.

^ Post impressions! :) I'll get them when I can. I'm still waiting for someone to nab my Sansui 1000A.

Is there much of a difference in the pre 2012 AH-D2000 and the current ones?  I found a used pair for sale but they are about a year and a half old so they are the old version.

I think at the beginning there were some D5ks that were too loose and would fall off if you leaned forward, and that was remedied early on.  TMK there haven't been any other revisions in the Dx000 lineup throughout its production.  There may be someone who knows differently than me, but I've not seen it mentioned anywhere.  If there were changes they don't seem to be something particularly sought-after, lest the early and late production models would be sold, and referred to, as such in threads on here.

 Is a Fiio E11 good enough to amp them?

Yeah, it's fine, they don't even really need an amp at all.

My D-5000 are not comfy for prolong use. They get clammy on my head and my ears start sweating allot. I think it would be better if pads were leather. Are there better pads for me or should I try to adhere some more tolerable material to part of the pads that are touching my ears?

post #2144 of 4321

J$ Pads and Lawton Audio Angle Pads are both made of leather, as well as supposedly giving better sound quality and sound staging.  The J$ Pads are a little more difficult to find since the guy isn't making them anymore, though you can still purchase the LA ones.

Apparently, the Fischer Audio FA-003 and Brainwavz HM5 pads also fit according to a couple posts on the previous page and they're pretty cheap if you read the links in the past 10 or so posts.

It seems the newest Denon's that came out in 2012 just before they got discontinued supposedly have a slightly better/refined sound and a few minor changes.
