Do the D5000's sound better than the D2000's or are the mids recessed on both of them?

So I have heard the dennon d2k when I was looking at $300 highend dj headphones. And listen to the d7k, and 3000anv when I was looking for a highend woodie. I really wanted to try out thunderpants but kinda gaveup. I found the 3000anv. to be the winner but not by much. Thought about getting either one but didn't see too many discounts. This was around july 2012 and it seemed like all the deals had dried up. Then I stumbled upon lawton audio and read how much headphone addict liked his LA 7000's. That dude has like 18 billion posts on here so I took a chance and emailed mark. The LA 7000's were too rich for my blood but saw he had a summer sale on the LA 2000's got mine for around what a new d7k was going for. These are definitly better then a d7k and even a little better than the 3000anv. but thats going off memory. They are for sale but that's only cause I'm broke right now and I'm not lettin em go unless I get close to what I paid for them. They really are an amzing headphone and I'm workn really hard on trying to be able to afford them.

Congrats on your purchase of discontinued rarity awesomeness. :) Btw guys, got Lawton Audio pads in today, they are great. Not a single flaw can be seen, and all sound has improved overall. Isolation is increased noticeably too.

Can you please elaborate a bit more on sound differences with Lawton pads, I've read some people complaining them adding sibilance, Tyll found them making mids grainy.

Congrats on your purchase, I really like the Lawton pads to, they are stiffer than the original pads but at the same time less sticky when on my head really comfortable .Its been about a year since i had my 5000 Marklized (MOD,CUPS,AND PADS)and still sound great not ready to change yet.

Im no expert but about sibilance i would think  that depends on quality of recording because i dont experience that effect all the time!

post #2456 of 4389

To be honest im not a big complainer of sibilance, I dont have many tracks with it in them in the first place; and I like the fun V shaped sound of the denons. Ill elaborate more on the differences soon when ive had the time to do a critical listening comparison. (Next week or so) And yes the pads are stiffer, yet ive noticed no loss of comfort for long time periods, actually for me they are more comfy. Very hard to believe, but I have large goofy ears that kind of stick out, so over say 3+ hours the old pads hurt, these have larger holes, with more room inside, and makes them perfect.

Looking forward to it.

I've just completed full (spare dynamat on front of the drivers) MarkL mod on D5000, wow, this baby can sing. Couldn't stand that flabby, bloated bass before, now it hits very hard and very tight, and finally some details in mids. Wondering if there is more room for improvement with angle pads.

Are the D2000's any good? Would they beat a Denon DN-HP700? How about the bass?

I thought you said you owned the D5ks?

post #2460 of 4389

Yes, I did, but how about the D2ks? Do they have the recessed mids of the D5k? Please, I can get one for 150€ like new.
