My guess is that the only thing common between these two is that they both are headphones. biggrin.gif

A little difficult to get or demo, but look at the JVC HP-DX1000 or HP-DX700's or even the kenwood KH-K1000.  Probably the most similar in look and sound to the classic discontinued denon line.

I've been pretty much freaking every minute of every day since I acquired them three days ago.  L3000.gif

I feel fortunate to get them at that price. As far as I can tell they are in perfect condition. The cups haven't even a scuff on them & they sound great. The only thing I've had to do is tighten up the little screw cuz it was loose (the screws with the common issue). I actually pulled the screw out and retightened with lock-tight. Now I start my journey for the right amp . . .

The Ultrasone HFI-780 is a bad comparison, it's the low-bass one in that lineup. The HFI-580 is probably your best purchase, honestly - but you really owe it to yourself to check out the Mad Dog line of modified fostex. "

 

 

"The Mr Speakers directly compare with my Denon D5000.

 

It is a blind buy, but if you're looking for something that the Denons (2000/5000) do, but with even tighter well controlled bass, an ortho like the Mad Dog with Alpha Pads is a very good direction to go." said Malveaux to me recently in a convo via PM I totally didn't ask him to repaste here.

errr. To be clear, the HFI-580 is a good bass can that isn't going to rival the sheer thrum and control possible to the D2000, The Fostex, on the other hand, are possibly even more capable at bass. :P
