Hi guys. Currently I have the Hifiman HE 400i 2020. They are pretty darn good. As always I want to upgrade Do you guys think the Goldplanar GL 2000 double magnet or the Hifiman Sundara will be a better upgrade for me?
I didn't order the set your posted, but I have a set of slightly larger 120mm sheepskin pads from AliExpress on their way. They should arrive any day now. I'll post up impressions of them after I get some listening in.
Actually 120mm pads make sense. Any smaller pad will start covering the driver. Stock pads are just barely enough to not cover driver. But also they kinda might be same pads GL uses. So not sure if it is good idea to go with them rn. Someone has to confirm that they are different
I've got several friends who bought the GL just to try it after the hype. They were impressed. They sold them to try the next hyped thing. For many people the fun of the hobby is trying the next big headphone. But to afford that most need to sell the things they try as they go.
I was impressed by them for the price, I sold them to try a Grado GH2. I preferred the GL. I'll sell the Grado to try something else. Thankfully, no matter which headphone you want, you'll often find it for sale on EBay/reddit/Head-Fi.
The DT 1990 is highly praised. Huge amount of those on ebay.
