Unfortunately, I have not heard the old model. I was considering buying the AD900 to upgrade from my AD700 until I found out about the AD900X and read dsnuts' review of them.

I've always thought the AD series has looked kinda cool. I love that they've finally taken the rear felt off of the lower end models. Something about a visible driver looks so cool.

 

Also, I've just skimmed this thread so I may have missed it. Anyone with an AD2000X have a comparison of them against the RS1 for rock? I know the AD2000s are recommended for rock pretty often, so I'm wondering if the AD2000X changes things.

If you decided to walk around in public with headphones meant for at home listening in a quiet environment, you might be handicapped ;]

 

Besides, I don't see how their fashionability has any effect on their function as headphones as opposed to fashion accessories. There are other brands that can cater to that if that's your main concern.

 

And I think the all black appearance with the exposed chrome drivers is incredibly sexy.

I've stumbled upon this thread after...well...procrastinating, and couldn't help but notice how awesome the AD2000x seems. I split my time evenly between Classical (mainly Romantic) and Rock (mostly classic), but my LCD-2.2s just don't cut it for Classical. Does anyone think that these would make a good companion to the LCD-2.2s? I mean, my only other choice would be to go and buy an HD800, and that is NOT happening with my high school income...

 

Thanks,

AD2000X For classical ? Hum peraphs not the most recommanded can for this kind of purpose , well at least speacking for my AD2000 (AD2000X has not yet reached home , shipped saturday from Japan) is that the soundstage as a good sense of depth , airy and somewhat spacious but not very large , instrument separation is quite good  , presentation is forward sounding, but again their are headphones wich are better in this departements , futhemore Mids are highly colored and not very transparent  ... For classical peraphs not the most recommanded can , i enjoy mine with classical , but i would not recommand it for classical unless you could try it before .

Say, how do you feel about the bass on AD900x compare to AD700. Last time I tried AD700, the bass is seriously too weak for my liking

Can you compare the bass on AD900x and HD595? HD598 bass was good so I guess 595 should be the same.
