The cup seems very similar to that of the DX1000. I know this perfectly because I had two modded.

For this reason, would the DX2000 have a new driver??? Can you confirm this?

That JVC China page clearly states that the drivers are newly developped, with new neodymium magnets being 30% more poweful than in previous models.

I still find suspicious there hasn't been any big annoucement from jvc about their new flagship, which is not even available in their home market. It reminds me of the FX500/1000, which turned out to be the same but targeted at different markets

I agree. I think it might be the same thing that happened to the FX700/FX800.

So you reckon they would blatantly lie about newly developed drivers?! 30% more powerful, etc. ?! Because for exeample the FX700 & 800 do not share the same drivers; their ø might be the same, but the wooden diaphragm area is larger. And the few users that have compared the two did notice differences, albeit not huge.

I won' t go as far as saying they are blatantly lying but the DX2000 description is just a commercial blurb very similar to the one on their Japanese website for the DX1000. 

30% more powerful than what? that's left conveniently unclear and their is no mention of the FX800 or DX2000 on their main Japanese website....rolleyes.gif

Many  people keep reporting  that idendical headphones sound different so not too surprised by early reports.wink.gif

Zenpunk brings up some very valid points in my opinion. The biggest tipoff is that there don't seem to be any plans to sell these in Japan. I asked a few Japanese distributors about them, and they said any info was basically nonexistent. If this truly was JVC's new flagship, they wouldn't be limiting it to sales in China only. Also like Zenpunk says, the 30% thing is most likely marketing. Sorry if that sounds pessimistic, but there's plenty of precedent for it. Just look at the box of the new Denon D7100: it says "tuned to be acoustically transparent and flat." Which is laughable quite frankly.

 

Speaking of precedent, JVC is known for releasing "new" models in different markets which are basically the same models only rebadged with a different alphanumeric designations. It wouldn't surprise me if the DX2000 is a DX1000 with some slight---albeit nice---changes (different pads, finish on the cups, etc.).

 

Variation does exist between units due to differing consistency standards. I've owned three different Edition 8s that all sounded discernibly different from one another. Other folks have encountered (and even measured) different sounding Beyerdynamic T1s and DT1350s. There was some controversy over whether the Sony MDR-7550 and EX800ST were the same earphones or not, with some people reporting differences. Yet it's more likely the 7550 is a rebadged EX800ST for western markets, as some 7550s even have the EX800ST name on their plugs and y-split. It's more likely the EX800ST just has stricter tolerances for variation since it's part of Sony's studio line.

 

Also it's entirely possible some of those positive changes on the DX2000 are also present on the DX1000 now. Fostex / Denon changed the original D7000 over time, refining and improving it.

AFAIC, if it isn't available from Yodobashi, AudioCubes, or PriceJapan, it's not "real".

As I said in previous post, this jvc dx2000 will only available in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, definitely NOT Japan, discussion on Chinese forum said this is basiclly DX1000 re-paint gimmick, the so call newly developed driver is really nothing, JVC China is the only one reveal this headphone, not JVC Japan, we all know Japanese company sells best product within Japan, if this dx2000 will not be released in Japan, then this headphone does not worth our attention, just buy the dx1000.

Yes, I bought my pair of them off Amazon Japan a couple of weeks ago for that price. The shipping was an extra $50 but I also got another item too so it could have been cheaper if I only got the DX1000's.
