Oh and shane shane shane... Ur name has come up a LOT in my searches on this thread haha so I have a question for you if you would possibly be able to answer it.
I'm pretty confidant that I want the M50's (coiled lol), but while waiting for a seller to respond, I came across the AH-D2000's and they seem amazing for what I want (mixing). Anyways, my question is, (if you know of the 2000's) is the doubled price worth the denons?
I had the LA2000 Lites, D5000, and now the D7000. Can't really comment on the D2000 stock, sorry.
But this might help... The other day I was talking to someone about the D7000 v. M50. I said that the difference between the M50 and D7k is not 10x (retail $1k). But I paid $500 and think they give the M50 a good run for their money. I haven't actually ABx'd the two, but I will soon. I know that the D2k's are supposed to have massive bass (similar to the D5k), but not the refinement in other areas, although they are the same drivers.
I preferred my D5k's to the M50, but the Bass was too much and overpowered the rest of the beautiful tonality. The M50 (once broken-in) does not have that issue... but does have slightly recessed mids.
Obviously only your own ears will give you the information you need to make the decision.
