Does it have any Lawton damping?

nah, no damping.

 

i have a set of cups coming from lohb, and i believe he will include some damping materials when he sends them out. so i'll do more extensive testing and back and forth comparisons to determine whether i want to damp one/both.

 

will most likely apply the "shelf liner" mod to both as well, to take the edge off the highs.

Any boominess with it now?  When I got my LA2000 back with the deep Cocobolo cups the boominess was not good................fixed it with hollofill and Dynamat.  It's bass is now maybe the equal of my MD7000.

 

I'm waiting on my cups from Lohb as well..................I think he's going to take over the cup market.  Martin takes too long and Lawton is too spendy................

I haven't had much of a chance to listen since I got them (hopefully this weekend I'll get a chance!), but in the few songs I listened to, I didn't notice substantially more boominess than my D2000. They are boomier, I think, but not to the point I felt they necessarily needed damping...was too busy enjoying! smily_headphones1.gif But then I never found my D2000 too boomy either (I don't mind a bit of boominess!), so coming from your LA's I'm guessing you would find them too boomy.

I probably will end up damping one of them, to get a slightly different sound between the two. And if I end up preferring damped, I'll do them both!

Definitely excited to see how they turn out!

And then i'll join you amongst the multi wood denons club! smily_headphones1.gif

I am tempted by those LA7000 in the for sale section...one from each cup-maker would be nice, to complete the double-triple! smily_headphones1.gif

Does a deeper cup sound better than an original one? 

I know the standard D2000 cup is 0.75'', while Martin did even 2.5''. Is there a sound improvement with a deeper cup or just esthetics?

The ones for $2000?  Quite an investment.

I think there is from my experience with my LA2000.  Once I got the boominess eliminated I could hear the "depth of sound" they now bring.

nah, those ones are a bit rich for my blood!

 

the pair i was looking at is the one with African Wenge cups and the J$ pads...those cups! possibly my favourite cups i've seen (and there's been a lot of damn fine cups)! i'm all about that grain!

will do more extensive testing between the two, but from all accounts it does affect the sound.

Agreed.

They have been for sale for months and I have a feeling and will remain for months if they sell at all here.

He should sell them on eBay.

How do modded D2000 w/o wood cups stack up to the new fostex headphones. How do the mods sound in general.
