I believe the FA-011 would be the best pair in terms of differences.
There is no contest between the M50 and the FA-011. The M50 is more adept at challenging the FA-004. The D2000 v FA-011 would probably come down to preference. My preference would be for the FA-011 as the D2000 has recessed mids and is totally missing those liquid mids that the Fischers have.
@LFF last question, does the fa-011 have harsher highs than fa-003?
i cant buy these even tho they sound perfect lol have to be loyal to my fa-003 and buy it wooden cuffs when time comes.im trying to modify the pads and adding cusions for the back of my ears area so i could get the perfect seal.. im just stacking small amount of toilet paper in it lol i think its improving i hear the punch of the bass better:P
The FA-011 has a bit more highs than the FA-003 but I wouldn't say that they are harsh at all. The best way to dampen the stock FA-003 is to use the leather pads Fischer sells. They are cheap and they work very well.
They are circumaural and very comfy. The ear cup is about the size of my fist...don't have a ruler handy. I imagine these babies will be able to cradle even the biggest ears.
