Also on the US amazon website, when talking about about 2kx driver it says "designed exclusively for the ATH-AD2000X" and the 1kx drivers "The 53 mm large-aperture drivers are exclusively crafted for this model". I don't really trust the product description from Amazon as they're typically misleading or wrong, especially for imported products. 

 

 

Amazon doesn't write the descriptions of products shown for sale, sellers do. One item might have four listings with various descriptions of the same product because four different sellers (manufacturer or not) wrote the wording for each page.

 

Important to do your own research from manufacture's websites and official review sites or from trusted reviewers.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Just got my AD1000x after ordering online - I also have owned a pair of beyerdynamic dt770 250 ohms for several years (but never have used them with an amplifier coz im a noob) and recently bought a pair of ATH-M50XBL's as I needed a more portable/easier to drive closed headphone and love them.

 

Needless to say, these AD1000x's are certainly a step up into new territory for me. Straight out of the box, unamped through my ipod classic they sound fantastic - being an open headphone my ears are still adjusting to that jump in soundstage from my closed cans. I definitely agree with a_recordings view that female vocals are another level on these hp's. Now looking for a dedicated amp to pair with these. 

 

Surprisingly the bass isn't as lacking as i'd read about, I mean, they are no closed can bass head type sound, but it is very clinical and it just feels truer than my other hp's. Happy listening!~

Early impressions of AD2000x is they are mightily similar to the AD1000x. If you're on a budget definitely go for the 1000x, I'll keep the 2000x because it's just a bit better all around - but it's hard to sum up the differences as they seem minor at this stage. Signature is practically the same.

I'm long since used to the AD1000x, the AD2000x is virtually the same.. though their may be a little more space between ear and driver, doesn't seem to bother me as much. Only ever felt the driver on my left ear, but don't find that an issue anymore. Clamping is perfect for me.

Interesting.  And the minor differences like you say further supports the claim that the AD2000X and AD1000X share the same driver.

Are the 1000x plastic or metal?

Metal, same as ad2000x - minus the headband.

So people pay $200 for metal headband?

When I look at the info from Audio Technica the permendur magnets are mentioned for 2000X.
