    Grado tweaked their lineup. Where was I?

    Grado Labs, Inc. When did this happen? The main changes seem to be nicer cups, better transducers, and better cable. and of course ps1000 silver, ps2000 gold (and "ps3000" kryptonite ) were introduced

    why is Denon's D7000 pricing going down

    If there are only ever so slight improvements between each model, that must mean the differences between d2000 and d7000 are minimal. I've had the d2000 and from what I read about the d7000 there's just no way they can sound that close.

    Denon D5000 VS. D7000

    J&R has them in stock again but for the full thousand. Also regarding the pads, I'm just guessing here but, I think the d7000 pads are different, just different from the d2000 pads in size but identical to d5000 pads. -edit: this could explain it...

    Denon D5000 VS. D7000

    Just something I noticed but Headroom says on the product page that d7000 has pleather pads, I don't recall it being confirmed in the other threads. What I don't understand about the MarkL mod is that denon shows off the magnesium frame for not vibrating and the cups for having somewhat...

    Denon D5000 VS. D7000

    "new driver", "better driver material" I think the better material is just the stronger magnet they were talking about. New cups, better cable, stronger magnet me thinks.

    Disaster strikes my HD600

    attach hinge=portable hd600s Buy some marble/granite glue I'm sorry, I shouldn't be making jokes. This is terrible. I'm sure superglue or two-part epoxy will work perfectly. Bind it with some surgeon elastics, latex glove, or just tape to leave overnight. If you do it right you'll end up...

    MS1 $105 or SR225 $160

    I doubt you won't upgrade for that long so I vote MS1.

    Head-Fi saved me over $300

    Welcome to Head-fi. Sorry about your wallet. (I never said that before. it feels good) Head-fi can't save you money...that's absurd! The way I see it, you just bought the gateway drugs. In reality head-fi lost you $89 and much more to come. sr60 is an excellent entry choice and I don't...

    Poll: Closest to Perfect Bass...

    k70X lack bass because of the way the sound is presented but if there was a lot more, I would say it is far far ahead of dt880/d2000 bass. What I mean by this is it goes pretty deep to my ears and sounds clean, there's simply not enough of it.

    Worst headphones ever?

    You can't say apple ibuds are absolute crap. The [$95] beyerdynamic iems (DTX 50) I got free w/ my dt880s was the closest I ever got to someone farting in my ears.

    "Roommate Wars" Headphones

    Play some pink noise through your speakers loud when he watches tv or works to see how he don't do that. The d2000 is a very nice choice and I don't feel it absolutely needs a good amp although it does leak some more noise than you would expect from a closed phone.

    Denon AH-D2000 Build Quality Problems

    I thought mine had issues when the leather earpads kept on getting loose and falling off until I realized that I hadn't properly "clicked" them on. doh, I feel like a genius.

    Pic HD 800!!!!!!!!!

    The "Chinese" pic must've been the prototype or something. The actual 800s don't look too bad. It definitely looks to have some serious acoustical advantages. Haven't read the review yet ( but just from that pic, it looks like it an...

    4 candidates - who will win?

    No love for k701? I don't understand how you can like the dt880s (well at least for the 250 '05 version) but not the k701s. IMO, the akg's just have a much more open and clearer sound. I guess the dt880s are just as revealing but doesn't sound as "natural" without that wide soundstage the k701s...

    HD650 vs. K701

    Great impressions and great first post! I wanted to try the hd650s but always thought I'd be losing soundstage and sparkle. But sometimes the k70x sounds abnormally thin and a little bass never hurt anyone. Anyways, I strongly recommend you change the title of the thread. This is a common...

    AKG 702 - Where to buy at decent price?

    You should check northern sound and light. The price quote I got was ~$250 although that was quite a while back.

    No, the HD680 isn't coming soon

    The hd650 msrp is $600. When the hd680 comes out, you'll have to pay full price which will probably be at least ~$800. If the street price of hd650s drop to ~$200 at the same time, you're talking 4x the cost of a used hd650 for something that's apparently, as Duggeh commented, simply a "remix"...
