Yeah, it'll probably be in a month or so. I'll be moving soon so starting a project like that in the garage right before I start packing up probably isn't a good idea.


Let me know if you want a guinea pig..................

let me know if you need a second Guinea Pig :3, I actually like the sound of my Standard Deep Wood Cups, if they where deeper I think there'd be to much bass as these are honestly pretty much ideal for me as is... well that's not entirely true, for metal that are a god send, for dup step I still eq them about +4db straigt line when I'm using my NFB 10ES2

 

how ever out of the bassier and warmer hm801 they do not need any eq, and I fear with extra deep cups they'd get bloated out of the hm801, thus in standard depth me gusta!

More volume in the cups doesn't make MORE bass, it just makes bass respond better at different frequencies. I would be making the cups deep, but probably not deeper than Martin's.

Better response is more bass, the Drivers respond in Dbs silly bear, still and extra 2 dbs of 20-50 hrz is always welcome im my book

 

 

that said though, I do really enjoy this headphone ^^ as we all cleary do lol omg Mark should get a hold of Fostex of Denon and start a reVamp of the D2k, do to the D2k what Dan did to the T50RP

Still not what I mean, I'm saying that the bass will be tuned to a lower frequency because of the larger volume, it won't have as much mid bass more than likely because the cup won't be small enough for the driver to create bass at that frequency. Kind of like when you make a subwoofer box, the larger the box the lower bass response the subs will give but they will also sacrifice the higher bass frequency response.

exactly, bigger box which means an increase in the dbs of Sub bass your going to get, that is a nice point about how the larger cup will reduce the amount of mid bass, but either way your Frq is going ot have a hump in sub bass with a dip in mid bass, which is actually kinda of a nice signiture, the AKG K550 and Rev 1 Sound Magic HP 100 sound like that, and I found them quiete enjoyable!

Yeah I think that's what happens with the larger cupped D2K I have here right now, which makes it sounds much more separated than my pair. That's why I'm a little mroe eager to start on this project, but I can't because of the upcoming move! :angry_face:

I do think the sound seperation is from the Lawton Pads, not so much the deeper cups or it could be, either way my pair, with driver tuneing and Wood Cups has wonderful seperation as well, on par with my W1000x almost as good as teh HE 4 

post #3700 of 4969

It could be, the ones I'm demoing have Alpha Pads on them which place your head farther from the drivers like the Lawton Pads do. I just remember my Alphas increasing the sub bass, and impact in my pair, but I had just stock cups. I think I might have to remove some of the cup dampening until I get my carbon fiber project rolling.

Wassup everybody, Im relatively new to this forum (been a lurker for a year though). I bought about a month ago my D2000s. Its my second pair of headphones (besides a couple of in-ear 70$ sennheisers), im coming from ath-m50.


Ive been searching for them (used) for like 3 months and just when I was going to give up and buy a used HE-400, someone responded to my 2 months-old post on kijiji (local classfields) and had a pair for sale for 400$ and i negotiated to 300$, BRAND NEW!! (he had bought a couple of pairs back when he knew they were going to be discontinued). I thought it was a great deal..

 

(My main language is french so sorry if my post is hard to understand)

Damn man that's incredible. I bought my 8/10 used one for $270
post #3703 of 4969

Do anyone know if the HE-400 has a similar sound to the d2000? those were my two choices but i might buy the he-400 in a year or so

post #3704 of 4969

No, they don't sound similar to me at all really. The mids are so much better on the HE-400 but the bass and impact are better on the D2000. The treble of the HE-400 doesnt sound as sharp to me as my D2000 either.

post #3705 of 4969
Ok.. Haha its kind of a strange feeeling to have one of my questions answered that quickly lol i'm used to look around the website for a while to get what im looking for since im a big lurker. Anyways thanks
