True, but we already know he won't be getting something that can do everything he wants (and won't enjoy for music and movies) and he said budget is not so much an option. At ~250 the D2000 is really not too expensive.

I'd say the D2000 have better soundstage and highs, D1100s come out stronger for mids/lows. They have much more bass than the 2000's, with the proper amp / EQing it'll match the D2000s. I will say the D2000's are a lot more comfortable for long use.

Would have been my first suggestion if they were priced like they were last year and the year before @ $140.

I dream with one thousand buck cans because the dollar is just 1,6 reais (money from my country) then I would do that extravagance.

But if feeling that difference between one or other is minimal then I will save my money.

I guess if you are a super bass-head I would agree - D2000 already have huge bass to me tongue.gif Mids are a bit recessed, this is the only slight EQ adjustment I make with mine.

I agree with you. If you have the money, the D2000's are the way to go.

Except by price, is D7000 better in all than D2000?

Very different sound signature and needs a better amp than a soundcard. Just go with the D2000s, you will enjoy them smile.gif

Thank you very much.

D2000 is the sweet spot for desired setup (with Essence ST with no an amp). AD700 the best budget for this setup.

Are these statements correct?

And Why Does D7000 need a better amp if it is ONLY 25 Ohms impedance rated?

I am sorry for my ignorance.

AD700s are suggested for gaming only.

D7000s can run without an amp, but they sound much better with a powered clean source. The D7000s are sensitive to this and their sound signiature would benefit/sound better with a dedicated DAC/Amp. Starting to get into headphile talk and the thread is just for best SS wheee.gif

I did not know the Essence ST amp was that bad compared to a professional amp.

I start consider an amp. But I will read much thred on hi fi audio.
