The ad2000x is a step up in term of comfort for me. The pad is not itchy at all and it fits really well in to my head. I also feel more secure when I use ad2kx.
I had the same impression as you when I compared my AD900x to an AD2000x (30 minutes audition). I felt the sound signature is similar, but the treble is less. I ended up not liking it.
And then I had a month time with an A2000x, which I bought. Left it for burn-in for about ~120 hours (yes it needs that much), and then I found out that they are really similar to AD2000x's, IIRC. I find AD900x's vocals a bit overbearing for some singers now, after hearing the A2000x for a period of time, I'm thinking AD2000x has the signature of AD900x but has the vocals of A2000x, which seems pretty appealing to me.
I'll probably be buying an AD2000x soon for extensive testing.
Setup was FiiO E07k. I tested with bass boost, and also without. Songs are all anime songs. They have a strange pull over me.
As for the A2000x, I tested with a FiiO E07k, a FiiO E10, and also with ASUS Xonar Essence STX. They sounded the same on all setups.
