Yeah, personally I like headphones with pressure. Can't stand it when I get up to go do something, or shift my sitting position or something and they're practically falling off.

Yeah, same here. Well, hopefully these would work for me for longer listening period. But I guess 1-2 hours are the max I'd use them anyway. That's why I like to use earbuds or IEMs for movies, they are more comfortable and my ears/face don't get warm easily. Here in Singapore it's hot and humid all year long.

An ATH-AD2000 owner as of a few days ago, I love this pair of cans, really leaves the AD700X, which I also own, in the dust. Now, some potato pics.....

Oh my god, where can I get a case like that? I'd love something like that for my pair.

Sorry, I can't help you with that. Bought it from a fellow forum member here (I see his nick here), he said he'd gotten his AD2000 at an exhibition, they came in special cases like the one in my pics.

I've been giving my AD2000 a little more listening time and I now find myself quite taken by its rather unique sound signature. Very nice highs, NOT at all irritating, and outstanding vocals. Heck, I listened to my AKG K812 and the AD2000, playing a dew DSD64 tracks and comparing them. The latter is very detailed sounding, but I suspect it owes this level of detail due to its treble. The K812 projects details more subtly and smoothly w/o too much highs. The vocals is where the AD2000 shines, I find myself preferring vocals on the AD2000 to the K812. I can't explain it, but the singer's voice, a female singer I might add, sound so much more natural and somewhat forward.....using Geek Pulse followed by iFi Nano iDSD + Lyr stack, still preferred the vocals on the AD2000 to the K812.

Decided to move on from the AD2000 and find something higher end. If anyone is looking for an AD2000, I have mine up for sale in the classifieds. (click here)

So glad to be back in this club. The Ad2000x just doesn't compare. The AD2000 is the most musical headphone I've heard. Love it!

I have a pair of ad2000 but my ears touch the drivers now. I've tried replacing with new ear pads, but that didn't work. I also tried putting soft foam underneath the ear pads but it makes my ears to warm and makes it very uncomfortable to wear. Is there another way to make it work? I have not been using them for a while and I miss the sound of them. Any advice would be helpful.

I stuff rolled tissue paper into the front and back halves of the ear pads to push the drivers away from my ears. The amount you'll need to use will probably be up to you. I admit to not really being able to tell much of a sonic difference and being too lazy to take the pads in and out to compare. I'm satisfied, though.

Wow, this actually feels ALOT better than the foam mod I did before. There's significantly less pressure on my ears. I guess the foam I had was too thick... Thanks again!
