Audio Technica updates their open headphones "AD" Series: AD2000x, AD1000x, AD900x, AD700x and... - Page 113

Yeah it doesn't get enough attention. Three things I've noticed about the AD2000X that may cause people to dismiss it:

1. It likes a powerful amp.
2. It needs quite a few hours of use for the sound to smoothen out.
3. It sounds better/more full at reference level 75-85 db.

Very nice! AD2000x is really an underrated headphone that deserves some attention :)

 

It was the same for the former AD2000 , i would have stick with one of them if i didn't had fit issue with 3D Wings : / .

I just used a black hair elastic across the wings and that solved all the fit issues.

on AD2000 the grip was great , but ears were touching the grill in front of drivers . AD2000X fit was way too loose , with a elastic it helped but brought back the old ears touching grill problem of AD2000 , so i given up , and look somewhere else .

 

 

Anyway for thoose you don't have any fit issue , take your time and learn to enjoy this great headphone ^^

This is true. Although ad2kx is easy to get loud, the bass, dynamics and the fullness of midrange is hard to bring out.

I used to have problems with my AD2k's grills, but the tissue stuffing mod really helped out. I originally had Denon D2k pads on which helped a bit, but the stock pads are just so much more comfortable than hardish pleather.

 

I definitely agree that the grip on the AD2k is great, though. Feels weird to put on my AD900x and experience a looser fit, even with the rubber band.

So what's the verdict?  AD2000 or AD2000x?  Curious, not interested in buying but since this thread is dominated by AD2000/AD2000x discussion.  Wondering from those who now own both.

I've owned both for awhile now.  Although I kept trying to love the AD-2000X, I recently sold it and kept the AD-2000.

 

I should add that I listen almost exclusively to Classical, so YMMV.

Still really enjoying my ad1000x, still seem unpopular though! Just a nice clean sound with no hint of harshness.

The fit is my only concern with the AD2000X.  Auditioning them is out of the question since I'm not going to find a store that has them.  I have the A900X and it fits very well.  When I first got it, it seemed to slide down a few millimeters after a little while, but this seems to have stopped (and this is with the default earpads).  I suppose I have a relatively small head.  I'm wondering if I should ever invest in the AD2000X... it would be a shame to get it only to discover it slides off of my head.

 

Would a WooAudio WA6-SE be a good amp pairing for the AD2000X?

If it slides down too much a simple hair elastic solves the issue. The SE is probably overkill for the AD2000X, the WA6 is more than enough, unless you have some harder to drive phones.

Thanks, that's good to know.  Saves me a lot of money too, looks like I won't have any use for a WA6-SE.

Have the AD2000x coming, so I'll be able to compare with my AD1000x.

 

Have no comfort issues with the AD1000x, I really like the wing system.

Thanks, I look forward to it.  I'm considering getting both as well, and only keeping the one I prefer.

Yeah, I will end up keeping one, unless they are quite different, which I doubt they will be.
