Could anyone help me choose between these and the FLC8s? I'm having a really tough time. I don't like sibilance at all. I am coming from a pair of Fidue A83s that I thought sounded just OK because of fit issues. I am seeing a lot of "underdog" type stuff with the FLC8s and I am thinking that headphone might be more of my thing because people are saying it is less sibilant. However the 2000J looks so much better and I feel like I want to try those out too. it's really hard doing research because no one really knows about the FLC8. But anything i have read seem to put the FLC8 in a positive light-claiming it to be better than the DN2000J. Any advice? Thanks!
I've heard both the 2000J and FLC8. I ended up going with the FLC8 simply because the sound is wonderful. I would say FLC8 is really an overshadowed, under rated monitor. I do find the upper midrange on 2000J to go into sibilant zone at times depending on tracks. 2000J is brighter than FLC8 though the FLC8 is not a dark sounding phone. However with red sub bass (deepest) filter, grey filter highs and gold filter vocals, the FLC8 sounded balanced with a sight tint of warmth which adds lushness and body to the mid range which I found lacking on 2000J. Built wise I found no issues on both units though the FLC8 has the upper hand of a removable cable using old UE pins. Have heard that FLC will be releasing a new cable for the FLC8. Looks wise it's more personal. Though to me both units ain't built and polished like a gem. But the FLC8 is really small. Considering it has both dynamic and BA drivers inside.
I've heard both as well and I do prefer the FLC8 over the 2000J. The 2kj is just abit too bright and peaky for me. FLC8, while smooth, was still clear and detailed, and retained enough bite for strings. Plus with the FLC8 you can tweak the nuances of the sound to your liking. Not advised to do it on the road though. I dropped the bass plug once and it was hell to find even on carpet.
