Portable headphones with Denon D2000 sound signature?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I absolutely love my D2000's sound signature, but they are pretty much the polar opposite of portable.  Is there a circum-aural closed-back headphone that is close to their sound?

 

Some likely suspects?

  • V-Moda M-100
  • Ultimate Ears UE6000/UE900
  • Sennheiser Momentum

 

If anyone has experience with any of the above and the D2000's please chime in!

 

For reference I'll be using them amped at home (NuForce Icon-2) and work (FiiO E7) and unamped out of my Nexus 4 smartphone on the go.

The V-Moda M80 measure pretty close to the D2000 for a portable.

With the very large dip in the mid range I think the M100 is a bit too far off of the sound signature of the D2000 for a recommendation.

 

The UE6000 looks close and gets a decent review here:

Of the three you have listed the Sennheiser Momentum looks to be the closest sound signature to that of the D2000.

I would say my UE6000 matches more with noise cancelling on to the D2000. The M-80 sounds nothing like the D2000.
