I'm shifting my rig to something a little more on the portable side, so these modded D2000's are going up for sale.
First these headphones have had the following modifications:
They've been recabled with cryo-treated mogami w2534 wire and have been sleeved with a black nylon material. Terminated with a 1/4" vampire stereo plug. Cardas Ultra Pure Quad Eutectic solder was used.
They have also been converted to open-back headphones, which was inspired by this thread: Open-back Mod
I have vented the cups and used an aluminium wall repair mesh for the grill(applied using JB weld). Dynamat extreme has been applied to the cups but NOT the driver. The earcups have been raised(using adhesive velcro between the ear cups and frame) and the paper has been removed off the centre hole of the driver only. No paper was removed from any other part of the driver. Please take a look at the open-back mod thread to learn what these particular tweaks accomplish.
In general these headphones are in great shape. On one ear cup there's a couple very minor surface scratches on the bottom near the cable entry. Also since the grill I used was intended for wall repair, it initially had some pre-applied adhesive on it. I tried to get most of it off and you can only notice a little bit if you touch the grills. Not a real noticeable concern but something I thought I would point out.
Also as an option, I can resolder the stock cable back on if you wish. As they are right now, the bass is tighter and there is more detail in higher frequency range. However it is brighter compared to the stock cable. So if you want a more balanced sound sig at the expense of a little less detail and a little more bass, it can be done
Looking for SOLD shipped within Canada. If your willing to pay extra for shipping I will ship internationally as well. Please add 3% if using Paypal.
Feel free to PM me with any questions you might have! Cheers!
(Note: I have some listening impressions on pages 9-10 of the open-back mod thread.)
