+1 I love my D2Ks for Dubstep.

I'm surprised you don't like the DT990s. Oh well, everyone has their own taste.

Hi, I have been looking for headphones and amp for sometime now. Currently I have Vmoda crossfade lp's together with fiio e6. I like them but I want to upgrade for more bass and overall quality. I'm looking just for home setup and my budget is up to 500$, what would you guys recommend?

I am really interested in the D2000 but it is so hard to find one these days...and even when I do find them they are selling at least $300 plus shipping...and I can't be sure of their quality,this just makes me wonder should I get the HE-400 instead. What do you guys think? IMO the bass is probably suits me better on the D2000 with music like dubsteps, but the HE-400 is just better overall

There are at least three on our for sale boards right now. See them all the time. So for $320 you have a classic basshead approved headphone that will make you happy.

I own both. Love both. I will say the D2000 have a TON of bass when EQ'd and amped. And yes they sound smooth and refined. But at this point I prefer their comfortable pads on my HE-400's. The 400's being totally open kind of sucks when kids family running around..but when all is quiet...WOW. I thought I was more basshead...it took a pair of HP's that brings out details in music, games, etc and the open sound is so damn good. The bass is pretty damn good too, can be EQ'd and Amped it for sure! There isn't the same impact either..the D2000's will rumble deeper and hit harder, but the bass on the 400's is more defined, accurate, enveloping without being muddy. The D2000's seem deep and smooth with rumble. Both are excellent. I've had my D2000's for 4-5 years. I plan on getting another set of pads so I can still use them. They're fun, but the HE-400 are more fun overall. I got my HE-400 for $319 shipped new before Christmas. It's a tough draw but I feel like I moved forward going with the HE-400, it's more fun and adds more to my music and games, a depth, I can't explain but is sure fun to enjoy. I'm no audiophile but I'm glad I bought these! The D2000's see a lotta drawer time...which is good, mine broke at the hinge and they're rigged up until further notice. If you NEED bass, go D2000...if you need easier to drive, go D2000. The HE-400's are easy to drive but lose a lot without amping imho..especially in bass. They're both still good unamped but the D2000 sound better unamped imho.

 

It's awfully tough to justify a used pair for the same price as a new HE-400 though. The D2000 are far lighter and more comfy. The HE-400 clamp better. Both do very well in your preferred music range. I listen to about everything, and the HE-400 is more of a do-anything can than the D2000 IMO. Tough choice in a sense, and easy in the other. If you value bass and want a legend, get the D2000...but be careful with them. The HE-400 are built tough...not worried about breaking them. I am still very nice but they're solid. The cable doesn't bug me. The stock pleathers sound good and are more comfy w/o the foam ring under the pads. I vote HE-400. Especially if you don't mind using an EQ! Both respond well, the HE-400 responds better imo. I gotta stop there... I vote HE-400.

Grab an e07k, a digizoid zo, and rock out. The lp have plenty of bass, but if you want to upgrade (I would, I had those b4), I would have to suggest the q40 with alpha pads.

Today I'll bring the D2000, HP-800 and the XB910 to work for some threeway testing. The HP-800 and the XB910 are fairly new acquisitions, and the D2000 is a couple of years old. I'll do it from my iPad and through FiiO E10 AMP/DAC. I'll post you guys some notes about their capabilities, and if I still consider the XB910's as great headphones or if new-toy-syndrome along with that bass response has been clouding my judgement. I don't think it has. I'm not overly prone to that due to me being a bitter *****. But who knows, right? I'm open for the possibility though. The reason I want to do this testing is because I'm pretty alone in seeing them as good headphones, and going against the grain like this has made me somewhat curious now. Is Head-fi exaggerating or am I?

 

Also, it'll be interesting to see how good the HP-800 really is. From initial listening I wasn't overly impressed with anything, but I've listened to it far too little to really say anything.

O.M.F.G. Those the Rev. 2s? My envy is through the roof right now...thanks a lot. 

 

But seriously, meng. Congrats. You have fun with them!

post #8712 of 11259

Thanks man! Couldn't be happier. Can't wipe that ridiculous grin off my face..

 

And yup! Rev 2.2, 2013 model. The later 2013 model had slightly thicker and softer pads, I believe. 

 

The bass is incredible. Sub-bass like I've never heard in a headphone system.

A basshead's Summit-Fi dream, no doubt.

 

     BTW, that girl in the pic...that ur wife? :eek: Just askin', meng. I thought she was Sara Bareilles. Been a fan of hers since Kaleidoscope Heart and then Little Voice (or was it the other way around? My memory fails me :tongue:). First time I saw the pic, I was like, "WTF. Sara Bareilles? I really need to get her new album." I've ben bugging myself to get her new album, but now, I think I really should. I feel like I'm missing out on something.

My girlfriend, who I'm being very nice to, after letting me make such a big purchase :tongue_smile:

Hey guys. Haven't been here in some time. Anyway, need your opinions on something. Im looking for an over ear closed back basshead can. I need bass quantity + quality ,specifically looking for a can that excels at subbass and very low frequencies. Im ok with the mids being recessed if the bass is perfect. Keep in mind i do like a lot of bass wink.gif The maximum i could spend unfortunately is $150, as shipping to here already takes $30 and im saving up for something big (non-headphone related). If it has a detachable cable, that would be a huge plus. Portability is kind of important but not necessary. I mean, if it doesn't have a coiled cable then i could use it as a portable. Oh, and i have plenty of power to drive anything so amping is not an issue.

As of now, my options are:

UE6000, theres a killer deal for them on Amazon now for $99.

M Audio Q40 ($139).

Creative Aurvana Live 2 ($129)

So what do you guys think? Any other suggestions?
