BTW, are AD2000x and AD2000 pads identical? There are AD2000X pads on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/OFFICIAL-Audio-technica-ear-pad-HP-AD2000X-for-ATH-AD2000X-/111132625860?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19e0054bc4 , but no AD2000 pads...

Thanks, but I was wondering would the affect the sound vs the stock ad2000s ones?

I use my AD2k with the Soloist SL and i'm really loving it, the transparency really lets the agressive mids shine!

Audio-Technica US sold me two ATH-AD2000 earpads at $18.30 each + ~$10 shipping. That shipping also included another part (a metal headband piece that snapped inside the cover, I think I'm the 5th or 6th owner or thereabouts).

I'm probably too late for remilio but I thought I'd post this for future readers.

Edit: No idea if they'd ship outside the US.

I actually bought AD2000 here, not on eBay, but yes, eBay is fully available in Russia, if you don't mind to wait for stupid customs and post to deliver your goods lol :)) This is why so many sellers reject sending something there.

Hey guys!

 

I just built a Beta 22 and currently using ATH-AD900's + w5000 pads and a rope mod. When I was using them with my old amp and previous Xonar STX I loved them, but the Beta 22 is just nuclear overkill and I was hilariously surprised at how much detail the 900's can provide when properly amped. I mean... it's just surreal. Absolutely amazing.

 

That said, I've always had an eye out for the AD2000X's. Other headphones, while comparable in sound, just don't due it for me due to the comfort the ATH series provides and now I'm genuinely curious as to how high "hi-fi" can actually go.

 

Is the ATH-AD2KX a good pairing with the Beta 22? Is it a significant upgrade from the 900's?

i have a B22 and the AD2000, non-x version. i was able to listen briefly to the 900 with my B22 at a meet. to my ears, the AD2000 was worth the extra. i've not heard the AD2Kx.

I've been listening to the ad2kx's for about 100 hours now and while it took some getting used to due to my familiarity with the 900's, I'll say it's an overall complete improvement over the 900's. The soundstage is slightly narrower but electronica is absolutely killer and I don't think I've heard headphones reproduce drums of all kinds so well. I don't have a frame of reference to compare the x's to the old 2000's but I'm definitely happy with the purchase!

 

For the headband issues, I took two black hair ties, looped them together, and looped them into the wings. The fit is actually better than the 900's now and is extremely comfortable. 

 

 

Definitely my favorite pair of headphones thus far. :)
