The Audio Technica W3000ANV Thread - Page 46

post #676 of 1415

Many many thanks Zorin for your complete and comprehensive songs/artists selection to test run the W3000ANV. I definitely would take some time to give it a try (there's quite a lot you provided, really), some of your recommendations are new to me and I've never listened before and it would be the good opportunity to let me explore and discover various songs and artists more. Once again thank you for your kindness and your precious sharing experience, last but not the least your time.

 

Also thanks to cky8. agree and definitely I would. Another one i've read so far is ZANA DEUX SE but it's bit out of my budget right now. (what a poor man I am! lol)

Thanks filuS for your sharing. But I have to take a look if the Svetlana is available in my local place or not. I'm old-fashioned and I still found myself buying the "seeing is believing" stuffs and I don't prefer internet shopping personally.

 

Hello diago, the hard protection box is bought together w/ my hp in the local shop. From the internet, I've read an optional protection box could be purchased separately (rather than comes with W5000 like you said) so I asked them if they still have one. They said to me "YES! LAST ONE!" so I just got it also. The shop manager told me that this protection box is originally designed and used w/ AD2000X and it is what I didn't notice before.

I can assure you that you won't find Svetlana 2 in any retail store outside Korea, it's highly unlikely they would have distributor in states. It was not long time ago when ADL were selling their amps exclusively in Korea (recently they started selling internationally). You could try to go for HA-02 or WA6SE, both should be good picks. I also think that buying personally is better, especially when it comes to expensive electronics,it is real pain to deal with returns/warranty when you have to ship 10kg package across the world (it takes long and it's expensive). And then when it is coming back, you have to deal with customs again (it is free, but you still have to provide a proof that you already paid tax on this item).

 

About hardcase - do you mean something like suitscase style or just hard box? I got my W3000ANV from a fellow head-fier in Netherlands, it was basically new and it came packed in couple of layers - hard-paper box > red paper cover with gold "plate" > very hard box stuffed with nice silky material with W3000ANV sitting inside. It was definitely much better casing than I had for W1000X, but I certainly not as classy as suitcase for W5000.

filuS, that's exactly my point you mentioned and the waiting is always killing me.

 

The hard protection case is this:

 

 

sorry for the poor quality of iphone photos.

i've got the same for mine.

That's a nice box, yazoo123.  Is there a product number on there?  Really would like one for transporting the headphones every now and then.

post #683 of 1415

I'm afraid I couldn't find any product/part number on the carry case, even not on the outer cartoon box. The shop just uses the marker pen to write down "ATH AD2000X" on the plain outer cartoon box. Sorry couldn't help.

Not a problem, appreciate the response and enjoy the headphones!

clamp or no clamp - can't see myself parting with these cans - they're so addictive. keen to compare them to the th900 tho - to satisfy my curiosity.

I will probably be selling mine for $1400 (they come with a set of brand new spare pads never used). They are in fine shape, not too much use. They sound great I just use other phones more.

I thought I would post here before the actual ad is put up to find fans of these phones.

I have seen quite a few places offering replacement pads for the w3000's. Do the pads wear easily/do they do they need to be replaced often?
post #688 of 1415
don't think it's related and haven't seen any complaints.
