Any pad updates?

Yes, as far as I can tell the sound isn't impacted by using the A2000X pads. They don't seem to seal anymore than the stock pads either. They do need a little breaking in to get more comfy but I still prefer the stock pads, although the A2000X pads don't itch like the AD2000X pads sometimes do.

So I decided to put on my AD2000X today after not listening to them for a couple weeks and WOW, I totally forgot how great they sound. I missed the openness and air that these have, makes me wonder if putting them up for sale is the right move...

hi, is the a500x or ad500x suitable for gaming? and is it ok to use them if you have a small head? These are the 2(other than the creative aurvana live and akg k240) I want to import through ebay.

From what I've seen. Many people report that the A/AD500x feel very "loose". From what I see they are balanced cans, meaning they should be ok with most of what you're going to throw at it.

Nothing with the build quality, people just say that it doesn't clamp onto your head as much as they want.

doesn't matter. if it's too loose for your taste, you can always just adjust yourself by putting a rubber band, hair tie, or other elastic on the wings.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask here (not via the comments please, it's trickier to respond in that system).

I actually think calling it mid-centric is unfair and might mislead a lot of people. I personally find it very balanced, its a bit warmer than neutral but has excellent treble extension and clarity. It's also much more natural sounding than lower end AT phones (although the new IM02 or relatively neutal IMO). Maybe not the best ever but it's very good and given it's price, how easy it is to drive and how smooth and versatile it is, it is an amazing headphone and I think would make a lot of people VERY happy.

If you do a quick search in this thread, you will find that there are people that did a comparison of the two.

If you need a sealed headphone..  The choice is obvious ;)

Yep, and if you don't need isolation, get the AD2KX for sure, open cans are great.
