BTW, which pads do you reckon you prefer for the D5000? Mine came with some modded stock pads but they're fairly deteriorated and a bit uncomfortable. I bought the Alpha pads which are super comfortable but I feel the distance between the driver and my ear degrades the sound somewhat - I prefer the way they sound with the stock pads... unsure if I can justify the cost of those Lawton pads, as tempting as they are. Might just need to find a new pair of stock pads (though the pads for the TH600/900 interest me)

 

Also need to figure a way to repair the headband so they don't look so untidy :(


I personally prefer the Lawton angle pads to anything I've tried.  Have the Stax 007 pads on my LA7000 which I'd say are equal to the Lawtons at a $60 premium.  Bought them to try on my HE-6 and then put them on the Denon.

Does anyone here know where I can buy a "hanger" (part) for my D5k? I got a small scratch on mine and it's driving me nuts. Absolutely pristine for 4 years and then bam, scratched.

Can anyone tell me if the Brainwave HM5 pads would fit on the Denon d2000?

Thanks,
James

Hello,

 

You should contact your local distributor of Denon, usually they have technical services and can order the original parts for you. That's how I ordered original screws for the hanger of my D5000. :-)

Well, it's official. The problem has gotten worse :-( Now 60% of the time, it doesn't work. I know chances are (very very) small but there is no one here from Belgium who can help me with this?

I am pretty sure if you re-solder or re-cabled them they would work perfectly.

I know but i cannot do it myself, I just wish I was handy but I'm more likely to solder the headphones to my ear ;-)

Thanks, I guess I'll contact them directly and see if anything can be done.

Finally got my AH-D2000 up and running again after semi-retiring it in the closet for several years. I purchased these early in 2008 during college and they were EXPENSIVE at about $260 shipped. I fell in love with the sound immediately after going through so many sets of cans so they were worth every penny. A couple years after that they were discontinued and they started to develop a rattling sound with deep bass notes. I checked everywhere in cups / around the driver making sure nothing was stuck and causing the rattling noise to no avail. I couldn't afford to get them fixed so I retired them to sit on my desk and then into the closet for a few years ; I even started to search for a replacement driver for them occasionally. 

 

Fast-forward to 2015 and I purchased myself a set of Fostex TH-600 earlier this year and also have a TH-900 on the way from a Head-Fi member =) 

 

I decided to pull my D2000 out, clean them-up, and test the Beyerdynamic C-0NE headband I purchased for the TH-900 on it first in case it doesn't fit and cause some tears or something.... (It fits perfect and looks fantastic IMO) I had another go at trying to fix whatever was making that rattling noise so I took the driver under bright light. I noticed that the glue/residue that is holding the driver to the frame was detached slightly in one tiny spot. I took a flat-head screwdriver head and carved that tiny barely-visible speck off the driver. 

 

After 3-4 incidents of the hinges falling off, the original earpads as well as the headband material flaking and leaving black flakes all over my head, multiple drops from negligence, and many hours of usage; they are finally up and running again sounding better than they did when I first got them (burn-in duhh! ;)

 

I am very excited for the TH-900 coming, but right now I think I am more happy because my original D2000 are fixed. 

 

Cool Story Bro!
