Audio-Technica Announces A1000X and A2000X - Page 2

post #16 of 77
i really don't understand why the street price is always cheaper than the retail price for a new releasing product.

do street sellers steal the products to sell them cheaper ?

Same what i thought. However it should be very easy for A1000x users to upgrade to the A2000x pads

Is the only difference between both models, the pads?
post #19 of 77
Obviously not. The difference between the AD1000, AD2000 and all other ATs with related names is also always in the driver.

Wow that was quick

How come not many people seem to be interested in these? The esw10jpn is considered to be an upgrade over esw9 by almost all who heard both, so shouldn't ATH's new fullsized closed headphones be even better?

Limited, lower price AND portable, it would be strange if the esw10jpn is better than A1000X/A2000X.

Audiocubes has these listed now. The A2000X is 899.99, the same price as their listed W5000, supposedly a new driver type too. Pamenjuru magnetic circuit?

Are the pads made of real leather ? I wonder if A2000X will replace W5000.
post #24 of 77
Super interested in these, but looking for a better source now.

A2000X replacing W5000 is impossible I think. They're not even in the same series

looks kinda cheap to me.

but the selling price is not

Anyone going to take the bite?

I'm tempted to, but I may go for the Denon AH-D7000's instead.

I want a "fixed" W5000: slightly fuller bass and a touch less nasal.

I'm listening to a friend's "broken" D2000's right now (screw fell out), and they definitely give me much of what I hope for in the bass department. They don't hold a candle to my W5000's (actually, recabled F5005's) in terms of detail, treble clarity & extension and SPEED. I used to wonder what people meant by speed until I compared the sound of Hi-Hats through these two cans.

Any suggestions? (any L3000's for sale?)

i got a L3000 on the way.. but i'm keeping it. That A2000X looks really good...
post #29 of 77
Frankly, I think they are both kind of pedestrian looking. Great headphones? Let's hope so. Art? I don't think so.
