I've been stalking these forums for quite some time now looking for guidance in making (in my sad opinion anyway) a big decision of whether or not I should purchase the Denon AH-D2000's or not. I have done a ridiculous amount of research and reading on these to the point that my stomach turns when I start Googling about them again.
Basically, I own the Sennheiser HD25-1-ii's and love these, perfect for portable use, however I've always really wanted good, comfortable circumaural headphones with punchy bass.
I've read so many reviews on these and there are SO MANY conflicting reports on the issues with build quality and reliability.
This scares me to death as I live in Australia and can envision messy warranty policies and problems if something goes wrong. If I bought these I would be buying them direct from Amazon.
The biggest problem with these appears to be weak screws breaking and/or coming loose. I know with my luck that if I buy these and wait for the screws to fall out, I'd lose the pieces needed to fix them again. Is there a way to prevent these screws falling out, or preventative action that can be taken to make them more stable or stronger?
I'm sick of drooling over these and watching and reading all sorts of reviews. Please help me with my decision. I've asked countless people but I wouldn't be able to get the sort of advice like I can get off here anywhere else. I've joined up especially to ask this question.
I guess my main concerns are:
1) what can I do about the screws and are there step by step guides in pictures or even better video out there (unfortunately Youtube has yielded no results).
2) what would the warranty be like if purchased direct from Amazon, or is there another way I can get them repaired if something goes wrong?
3) is this a problem that only effects a small amount of users?
4) is the risk not worth it for $400 give or take?
Thanks guys. Usually I would just take the plunge but I'm paying quite a bit in rent lately and don't get a chance to spend this kind of money on myself very often at all so I just want to make as educated a decision as I can.
Thanks again, any help is much appreciated
