It's a Norse Cable and Brian at BTG-Audio did the re cable.

@preproman

Have by chance ever had static electricity problems with the AD2000? Reason I'm asking is because I've been wondering if a recable could possibly help with that at all.

Goodness no.  Ask Asr - He had his for much longer than I have.

Enjoy :) I really like the AD2k and even though they get very little head time they are still great every time they get used. It's not the best technical headphone but it's pretty high in terms of enjoyment. The only thing I do not like about the AD2k is the cable which I find too long and pretty "meh" in quality. I'm tempted to buy that AD2k on the FS forums with the dual 3 pin XLR. I'd probably have bought it if it was the 4 pin but I shall see. I have a balanced amp coming in so maybe if I like it enough I'll bite.

Cool Shahrose...let me know what you think when you get them. Congrats!

I see. I noticed that he put his up on the for sale forums. Wonder why? Anyway, I don't think he responds to PM's. Asr? If you read this, has anything like that ever happened to you?

 

I've never seen him mention anything like that though, or anyone else for that matter. If I'm wearing my AD2000s and then sit down to listen, I have to take them off and set them down before standing up. Otherwise, I'm liable to get an electric shock to the side of my head, which then runs down through the cable and temporarily puts my DAC/amp out of commission. Thankfully I haven't sustained any lasting damage to anything as a result. It really sucks though. Somebody, don't remember who, told me that on Japanese sites there were reports of some kind of issue with the AD2000's stock cable which may or may not have something to do with it. I may also just be in a bad environment. Considering selling them myself. I really love how they sound, but when I feel like listening, I find myself deciding not to with increasing frequency because of how inconvenient and uncomfortable it is. The cable is very annoying being stiff and retaining it's shape as well. frown.gif

 

Any other AD2000 owners ever experience something similar to this?

I've owned 3 AD2000s now and they...ALL...shocked me. They have only shocked the tips of my ears which touch the drivers, and have never affected my equipment one way or the other. It happens quite frequently when I wear socks or walk around a lot while listening. so I just chalk it up to static buildup coupled with the AT's shallow drivers. nothinh to worry about, ime.

Very interesting. Unfortunately it seems to be more severe in my case. It feels more like it shocks the general area on the side of my head, is quite loud, and is even mildly painful sometimes. It's had the same effect on the three different DAC/amps I've owned since getting them too.

That is very interesting to hear. I haven't heard of static issues with the AD2k or any headphone really but then again my desk is made of wood and nothing in the room really would attract static.

prepoman,

i'm glad you're enjoying your AD2000.  btw, what opamps do you have in your M3?  the AD8610 is a nice combo.

Nice shot. I love the open turbine look of the cans. I've also always found ATs to be supremely comfy...hoping it's the same way with these.

I have a feeling I will as well.

Corey, you're one of the ones who recommended these over the past years. Are they still your go-to cans? Which of your amps do you find best suited for them?

Hey Corey,

 

I'm using the OPA627 in the M^3.  I sure don't know how to change the ops.  Ying is not as open or flexible as you are when it comes to doing things like that.  I would have to send it to you to roll biggrin.gif.    

 

What sound sig are you getting with the AD8610

OT but rolling opamps is easy! Don't need to send it to anyone for something like that. For the M^3, AD8610 > all other opamps IMO.

Are you saying the AD8610 is equal to all other opamps or the AD8610 is better than all other opamps?  IYO
