post #76 of 1858

I'm looking at the AD 2000. Do you guys think it's worth the wait when considering the improvements and resale value? Feeling ambivalent right now.

"improvements"  That remains to be seen.

Although considering the price of the AD2k in the used market it's a no brainer to me. I have doubts about the AD2000x being better but I'm willing to wait and see.

The AD2000X seems expensive to me. I'd get the AD2k now instead.

hmmm...while waiting for these new headphones prices to come down, I am going to obtain Denon D7000 (while stock last), Fostex TH900, JVC DX700 and DX1000 to complete my woody collection XD. My wallet will keep on burning...

 

Edit*: also ESW11LTD as well...******* it...

Thinking of entering the forray of open back with an AD900X! Thinking about getting a friend visit Japan to bring one back for me. Don't suppose anyone knows what's the best way to buy local in Japan? Is Yodabashi Camera actually cheap, or just convenient? Just in case there are a few Japanese head-fi-ers, or anyone who travels alot =.^ Thanks!

Judging from this, Asahi Denki is the way to go. Kakaku lists stores by location so you still have options if your friend isn't dropping by Kagawa, Shikoku. Most of the stores seem to be in Tokyo and Osaka though.

The 2000x is pretty damn good. Uses the same driver as the ES10, but in a much better housing. Sound is wide, detailed, and fun. It's typical AT stuff - so if you don't like it, you never will, but for us fans (yes, I've become one), it is excellent. I'm thinking of picking one up at e-earphone. Problem for people with non-Japanese heads is that the headphones slide down. AT stuff simply is too big. I can wear it and if I don't move my head, the phone stays on fine, but as soon as I even shift my eyebrows, the headphones slip down down down. Funny, here, they complain about Senn and Beyer as too tight and clampy and I complain about their 'comfortable' headphones as being two sizes too big. 

 

Sound is excellent hough.

AD2000X will be released tomorrow !?  Who has ordered one ?  biggrin.gif

If the 900x is the ad900 with extra comfort and more bass, I'm there. Really shouldn't have to use the phatmod to make it comfortable, the driver touching my ear irritates me.

The AD700x and the AD500x might be my next headphones xD. God these things look sweet. I am hoping they won't be too expensive. Maybe prices will go down a little by xmas.

Cool, thanks! Will ask if my friends can find one around Tokyo.
