It does say somewhere on markl's site that you can contact him for availability and pricing for stock d7000 cups. Don't you have to mod them to get them to fit on the d2ks though? I haven't actually taken mine apart to see if they are different, but I remember reading the cups aren't directly compatible.

You know, I do remember seeing that clause somewhere on his old site but I can't seem to find it now that he changed his layout. Either way, he never posted a price publicly so I won't post it publicly either. I'd be happy to tell anyone via PM though... Found it here, pricing included.

And yes, it required a little modding but nothing that isn't completely irreversible. I had already recabled the headphones so I figured any warranty I had was shot anyway. I'll post a few pictures tomorrow to show what has to be done.

EDITED: adding pictures

If you'll notice, the screw points are completely different between the D2k and D7k cups. On the D7k, they're located higher constructed differently. They however are placed in the same locations in respect to the 4 screw holes on the drivers.

6648043937_1dfc5c2055_b.jpg
There are 4 posts that are used to accommodate for the D2k's lower screw points and aren't needed for the D7k cups.

I cut all 4 posts off so that the plastic disks sit flush with their respective cups. This is easily done with a dremel or some kind of saw but because I didn't want to destroy the posts, I instead elected to slowly carve them off with an x-acto. They still mate perfectly in their original spots so I can completely reverse the mod by epoxying them back on.

The D2k screws were a tad too long so I used washers to bring the screws a few millimeters higher than where they usually sit. The end result is that the driver sits flush the with cup.

Supposedly the newer production runs of the D2k don't have the 4 plastic posts but I don't know how reliable that information is.

I'm hoping I can get some recommendation for gaming headphones. My budget is $75 USD max. They must be closed headphones and comfort is very important to me. I've found a few headphones which seem to satisfy my requirements; however, I do not know if they are necessarily good or someone can recommend better.

Sennheiser HD448
Sennheiser HD202
Panasonic RP-HTF600-S

Out of those HD448 but what;s your budget and current sound setup?
post #10985 of 38156
I already posted my budget: $75. As for setup, I have the Sennheiser CX300B however I feel circumaural headphones would be more comfortable for long gaming sessions.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting a nice audiophile set up, and I thought I'd come here for advice. I have no knowledge with advanced headphone set ups, so bear with me smile.gif

So basically, what will I need? A pair of cans and an amp? I'm currently running Corsair SP2200 speakers off of integrated sound, and I use Beats by Dre Studio's occasionally, so obviously I want a mind-blowing upgrade from this tongue.gif

The pair of headphones I'm looking at are Sennheiser HD598 Sennheiser HD 600, but I'd like to have more choices, so can anyone recommend another pair of headphones for around the same price point ($400 tops)? Also, the amp I'm looking at is the FiiO E10, but again if anyone has something else to recommend, please do.

I found the HD 600s and E10 on eBay for $320 and $80. Good deals?

Just basically wanting to know how to get the best sound possible out of my system (through headphones).

EDIT: Did some research and don't need to know as much now. Changed things accordingly.

650s from amazon are 360ish, and the diio e9-e17 combo would be a great investment for you when the e17 is released

E9 is decent but not particularly special, other than having more output voltage than most cheaper options. If you're getting an E10 (or E17, depending on how that turns out), I don't think there's particularly any motivation to get the E9 unless you're looking at relatively insensitive, high-impedance headphones.

E10 is generally enough for HD 650 and HD 600, at least in terms of volume. High-impedance cans are generally not too picky about amplification, so if they're loud enough, then it's not really an issue on that front either if you're looking for a good value. Sure, you're arguably not getting quite the best-possible sound possible from those headphones, but that sure beats getting any kind of sound out of lower-end headphones. It's the Beyerdynamic DT 770/880/990 600 ohms models, some vintage AKG 600 ohms models, and so on, that really could use the extra voltage the E9 can provide.

I'm getting the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250 ohm's, but I need a good amp.
Could any of you suggest something that will make these make sweet sound?biggrin.gif
Price dosen't really matter TOO much, just enough for these to run well and make amazing sound.tongue.gif

Can any of you recommend me a good mic too? People say I should get a Zalman ZM-MIC1, but I want something that ignores background sound much better than the Zalman and still sound very good. (Not too expensive)tongue.gif

I will also get an Asus Xonar D2X.
