My wallet feels much better.

Today I just had a chance to meet developer of JVC DX-1000, DX2000, also the global manager of headphone division.

 

They said DX-1000 and DX-2000 are identically using the same drivers and has the same sound quality.

 

The differences are

 

1) Housing finish             
      HA-DX1000-----Beatiful wooden pattern appears on the surface of housing
      HA-DX2000-----Piano black finish but the original wooden pattern also appears on the surface.

2) Factory Aging
     HA-DX1000-----No aging at the factory
     HA-DX2000-----48 hours aging at the factory so that user can enjoy the performance
                         of HA-DX2000 from the day one.

 

And this is available only 300 units for only Asian countries except Japan.

1000

I guess it´s necessary. People buy gear like they have a best before date. Hard to keep fotm going otherwise :)

To bad they would price hike it at the same time instead of giving more DX 1000 to the masses :(.

I saw these today at Jaben in HK. We took them out of the box but I was not able to listen to them; they keep wood headphones pristine for the purchaser. (I don't object - and Kin at Jaben is a great guy.)

 

The DX2000 is quite attractive in real life but it's just a dark version of the DX1000.

Also the mystery of "why" has been solved. The DX2000 has been created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Shun Hing Electronics, the long-time Hong Kong distributor of Victor/JVC/Panasonic and other Matsu****a products. It seems that there may be only 60 of the DX2000 out there.

Where can you buy these?

post #72 of 75

In HK, both Jaben and the main Kingsound Audio shop each have a pair. That's where I noticed it anyway.

OMG thank you so much for confirming this. Just bought the dx1000 and the upgrade bug kicked in, oh god there goes monthly pay for the dx2000. I actually prefer the look for the dx1000 woodcups more. So glad I stumble across this thread, might grab the TH-900 later as the end game closed headphone

List price is RMB$9,980

 

 HP drivers direct fix on wood chamber, interesting!

So about $1600-1700 USD. I personally think the black finish is pretty attractive, and the added rarity adds a value to the collector. Kinda reminds me of the green variant of the Audio Technica "Leatherheads", which were extremely cool.

Following this logic why not to purchase the dx700 to save even more? Because I can imagine they played the same trick with the dx1000 - dx700
