Honestly don't know who originally came up with the idea of using Dynamat to sharpen up the bass, but it flat works gents.  The headphones are now the equal of how it was with the stock cups (which had Lawton tuning) and now the looks match the sound.  But imagine a deeper D2000 that has no boomyness - that's what I have. 

 

Thanks again! 

You're welcome! I'm glad you got the sound you were wanting out of them!

It actually exceeded it. I was expecting it back to the tight thump the stock cups with Lawton mods gave me but I'm sure due to the depth, it's a throatier bass that's tight and thumps. Tried them out on Steely Dan's Aja title track on the Pioneer Spec system and was blown away during the drum solos. If you have that album, try it with your D2000.......

Thanks again!

I wonder if maybe I should have gotten my Cups Dampend... Oh well to late for that really, but I have a feeling the extra Depth of yours caused a loss of tightness, but an increase in sub bass. more room to stretch it's legs

 

Non the less, all of this is just my telling my self saving $60 was worth not getting the back of the cups dampened xD [cost me $144 with shipping for the Driver Dampen and the Lawton Pads[]

If you start listening to them and realize they need it, it is so easy to do just the cups.  All you need is a bit of Fatmat or Dynamat. 

 

I did it in less than a half hour.   I'll talk you through it if need be.

It would take more time to get the headphones packaged up and taking them to the post office than to just do the mod yourself, and on top of that you'd be saving a bunch of money.

I know this is the D2K and D5K thread but check out this art from BTG Audio.  Brian put this Q French Silk cable and Q Audio terrazzo plug on my D7000, getting rid of the one weak link in the design of the Denon headphones in my opinion.

Is the silk cable solid core or stranded?

Honestly I'm not sure. Think stranded and as flexible as it is I'd say so but not sure.

I think you need to have either 10 or 30 posts in the forums before you can post.  And yes, it is the little deal that looks like a picture frame with a mountain scene in it.
