What do you think of them and what amp and music do you use them with?

Currently i´m listening to them through the Sennheiser HDVA 600 which is a very good Amp. Compared to my Audeze LCD 3 the Synergy is very good.

When i first listened to them they sounded quite dark but they opened up. I think it´s more a "Fun Listening Headphone" than a true audiophile Headphone. Also the Mids are really great.

Electronic Music is my preferred to listen to with the DX 2000.

Hey Peter,

 

It's been a while since we last heard about you and your impressions with the DX-2000. Were you be able to send them back and get an unbroken pair?

 

Best, Pete

Sorry Pete,

 

Been really busy collecting other woodies from Audio Technica. I will do a comparison with it older brother DX-1000.

I've had a long long listen to both the DX1000 & DX2000 today. After letting the DX2000 burn in for another 24 hours prior to today session.

I can definitely hear subtle difference between the two, some are more notable than others.

 

Most notable difference is the bass rumble, it's more loose on the DX1000 and not as refined as the DX2000.

The bass quantity is the pretty the same but the bass quality and layering is superior on the DX2000.

The DX1000 are also slightly warmer than the DX2000, not by much but it definitely different.

Sort of like comparing the HD600 to the HD650 but slightly more subtle between the DX1000 & DX2000.

Other thing I noticed was the vocals on the DX1000 are slightly more forward than the DX2000.

The DX2000 vocals are very smooth and more airy.

 

I'm really tempted to open them both up to see if there any different damping used to result in the slightly difference in the sound tuning on both. As I'm aware the wood cups structure are the same on both pair of headphone.

Anyway, back to listening to lovely musics and melodies.

Time to see if someone wants to trade me their DX2000 for my TH600...

Thanks for your feedbacks Peter! So after all where did you get your DX2000 from? What happened with that NZL dealer whose parcel got damaged by the time you got it? I've been thinking about to buy a pair from the DX2k as well.

The NZL dealer never passed on the detail to assist FedEx with the claim because they argued the parcel arrived undamaged.

Even though I had everything to support otherwise, they still sticking to their story.

FedEx would not proceed further with the claim without the original sender filling out a form for the claim.

I manage to get a wood work expert locally to repair the damaged clear coat finish on the wood cups.

Box I've tried to steam iron back to it original shape, didn't turn out too bad.

You can still see crease but it not deformed like before where it was very hard to lift the lid off the box.

Interesting! So you managed to fix them by yourself. Any chance for a photo(s)? ;)

Those cans are definitely gorgeous. Arguable whether they're as pretty as the DX1000--I love both!

Thanks man! Gorgeous headphones indeed. I hope one day I'll have a chance to get my hands on a pair. Right now they are only available from Malayasia and Hong Kong and it's like 1300$. The NZL supplied discontinued this particular item already.

 

Anyone knows any other sources where they can be bought cheaper...?

I should mention, the $1300 version from Malaysia and Hong Kong comes with the 60th anniversary wooden box and JVC demo CD.

The box is finished in the same glossy finish as the DX2000 wooden cups. True luxury feel that fits the asking price.

I purchased a used copy of this demo disc (2001 JVC K2 HD Mastering Sample Disc), the first track "Ave Maria" by KOKIA is simply phenomenal.

 You can check back in the thread as I have outline the difference with photo. Headphone is exactly the same though.
