Really enjoying my Denon D2000s. The entire gimble mechanism on the right ear cup came apart though. Before (last summer), just the screw came lose, and I screwed it back in after finding a small enough 'drill bit precision tool' - cheap 50 cents - to fit in it, I tightened the screw in the left earcup too. Now, the cap at the top of the gimble, the little silver cap that exists at the top of the gimble, and at both ends where the earcup attaches to the bracket. It's like the whole thing came apart.
I am considering Loc-Tite-ing it in place, at a decent angle - after I Loc-Tite it, it won't be able to swivel anymore =(. I can still listen to them, and am listening to them now through my iBasso D4 Mamba, but now it's even MORE precarious than when it was put together with just a loose screw before. So, I probably can't dance with them. =(
Has anyone tried the new Denon AH-D1100s? I see they are going for $199 on Amazon, and am considering buying them for a decent-sounding (I trust the company) backup pair of headphones in case these turn out weird. Anyone know of any headphone that sounds the same - pronounced bass, candy-sounding, good highs, good for pop, rock, hip hop - that may be another company? In the 200-300 dollar range, closed-ear headphone.
I am currently shopping for a new one.
