AD2000 is a special headphone where I can forget about my full blown desktop setup and just listen from ipod and portable amp in good quality!!!

The problem with W1000X is it's more picky about set-up than AD2000.

I did listen to piano, and most of my fav tracks come with female vocal from Bebel Gilberto, Roisin Murphy and so on, I did like it. One thing I missed is the open sound, and unfortunately no closed can sound like an AT AD headphone, that includes the W5000 which is my favorite closed can, and it's the least closed sound that I heard from a W (or any closed headphone). The W1000X has some very charming aspect, its highs are warm and very intimate, but the mid bass is too much, and the midrange is in the background as I mentioned before. If it were the other way, I might have kept it, but this amount of bass is too much for my taste. I had an A900 before, it had lass bass, and even this amount is much more, than any of the ADs. So the conclusion is I prefer open headphones, oh wait, open AT's, as I'm in love with the AD700 (still has one), the AD900 (sold but miss it) and the AD2000. And I also liked the AD1000 as well smily_headphones1.gif

I've been wanting the ATH-AD2000 for a long time now, but the price has been out of my budget. With the new ATH-AD2000X coming out, it looks as those the original ATH-AD2000 will probably be in very short supply. Due to that, I'm worried that if I wait any longer, I will never be able to get my hands on an original ATH-AD2000.

 

Does anyone think it would be better to buy them now, before they become too rare, or wait a bit longer and see if they drop in price. I mean the ATH-AD2000X has been released, but I haven't seen anybody really who has got their hands on these outside of Japan.

 

As for the ATH-AD2000X, I do want it of course, but I don't want to miss out on the original, especially after I've been eyeing them for so long. Thanks for suggestions.

Check the for sale forum.  It was a few great deals on there for these.

We have different taste then tongue.gif

 

I never feel any too much bass feeling when listening mostly piano songs in a good recording. But I do felt it when listen to mainstream songs.

Hello, I am having some issues with my AD2000 and I am looking for some help. Mine are about 1 year old right now, and it seems the left can is intermittently not releasing sound. I guess the issue is the cable connection. What should I do? Should I look for a replacement cable, try to solder the cable connection, or maybe return them for maintenance(I live in Japan, so that is viable)?

I couldn't find an english manual for them or something the like, and my japanese is kinda spotty for this.

Try to verify the connection is the problem. When you experience this, gently bend the connector (while not moving the headphones) and see if that fixes it. If that doesn't change it, try wiggling the actual connector at the entrance to the cup and see if it changes. 

 

I would contact Audio Technica and ask for a warranty repair since you are so close.

I have a Burson Soloist coming... I can not wait to pair this up with my AD2000.

Hey guys, I'm new here. I recently got an ATH-AD2000 from a fellow Head-fi'er and I'm absolutely loving it so far. I'm looking for a decent amp to pair it up with. Since I can't find the Gilmore Lite anywhere I was hoping the Sheer Audio HA-006++ would be a good second best since it has the same DynaLo circuit. I currently run it from a Xonar STX with upgraded op amps. Hoping to hear some suggestions! :D

Do you recommend I get it from JDSLabs or Epiphany?

post #687 of 776

Find yourself a M^3 on the FS forum.  This is a good amp for these headphones..

Well i got it from swiss assembler http://www.headnhifi.com/ (Head 'n'HiFi)  (it was the cheapest for at that time , order from the most convenient shop to you , O2's should be all the same)

 

it work very well with AT ATH AD2000 to a point that i don't regret SPL Auditor + Beyer T1 combo (just matter of preferences )
