Replacement for AH-D2000

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So my D2k broke on me and since they are discontinued I need to find a good replacement.

Which headphone out there in the 300 dollar price range come close to these cans?

You want another closed, dynamic driver hp that is easy to drive and has similar bass? 

 

I'd try to score a used pair in very condition on the used forum here. Or look into getting your pair fixed. It may cost you a lot less. 

 

You also might consider this:

Maybe Beyerdynamic DT 990 (except it's open)

How are the Q40s compared to the XB500s? as I already have a really bassy headphone (xb500) 


I need good bass, so open is not an option for me.

I think the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80's are a solid alternative to the D2000's. They don't sound the same, but their bass response in comparable, and I like their more tamed treble. I also think the mids are a little bit nicer. They isolate muuuuch better, and are just as comfortable.

Kenwood KH-K1000 will replace and upgrade. Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9A will replace with more coloration (you'll either find it an upgrade or a downgrade, depending on you). Both feel better put together to me.

Try the Audio Technica A900X. Very similar to the D2000, slightly smoother treble, slightly more rolled off bass. Mid bass is more controlled than the stock D2000.
