So I got a pair of d2000. Wowwww at the bass. Sounds much more laid back, musical, and less revealing compared to my DT770. Comfort isn't as great (esp with glasses) but its still good.

Can someone compare these to the he-400?

yea 

 

one HE 400, one Foxtex T50 RP, and $250 later my D2k sounds better than my old HE 400 did imo

 

but my d2k has a new OCC copper cable, it has Cocobolo wood cups, it has the Mark L Driver Dampen and it has Lawton pads AND I feed it exclusively with balanced amps [I did the same with my HE 400 too as well]

 

and for about $700 yea a modded D2k sounds better than an HE 400, for about $350 you can get an HE 4 which sounds better than both of them q.q

 

but I like my modded D2k very much, it's on par with my W1000x [which is also modded and out atm for recabling]

Who has the Fidelio X1? How does it compare to the D2000? Does it do anything better, worth the upgrade?

I've got both. It's a close sound comparison to the D2000. Being open back, they still have great bass while the Denons bass is godlike. I wouldn't consider the X1 an upgrade. More almost an equal.

*chucks and orange @canuckavelli *

 

Open vs closed don't compare to well

 

But yea, the D2k has some AWESOME bass, I like it much better than the HE 400 I had, the HE 4... is about 95% as awesome as the D2k though... it lacks the light smidge of resonnance the D2k has, but my D2k like many here has been modded to hell and back.

Is there anything the X1 does better? Basically since I bought the D2000 I find they do everything better than the DT 770 except comfort... those velour pads are unbeatable. The X1 looks like the best of both worlds + added soundstage from it being an open design.

I'm not gonna bother with Hifiman cans for now. They're too bright it seems and my ears are sensitive to sibilance. Can you compare to the Fidelio X1?

Maybe comfort. That's about all it does better. Does a lot really close to the Denon too.

I'm getting rid of my Alpha Pads. I haven't been using them so I'm selling them to fund another purchase.

I've been contemplating to get HD650 to replace the D2000 but as you guys said, the bass on D2000 is just addictive. Does anyone has the thought between HD650 compare to D2000?

Since one is open and one mostly closed, you have such a different application.  I'd try to add the HD650 instead of replacing the Denon, and yes, I realize that is not always practical but it is such an addictive sound. 

 

I have not heard the HD650 but did have a few days with the HD700, which I LOVED.  But I'd still not trade.

The HD650, when properly amped, has one of the most forgiving, plush signatures I have yet to hear.  The 650 has given me more chill inducing moments then any other HP I own. It does not have the bass response of the D*k series,  but it does have textured, layered bass that that with the right amp, extends quite more then I expected before I bought them a few years ago.  The veiled sound is a myth that was conceived by those who have not heard them with a vintage receiver, or a good tube, tube/hybrid, or even a good SS amp.  As taken as I am by the HD800 as of late, I still throw on the 650s and grin from ear to ear. The D2/7K still has a place in my collection, but the 650's midrange and vocal reproduction is special. 

 

That being said, they would be fantastic complimentary cans to each other.
