That's all fine and dandy but what about the extenuated soundstage [on the Q701] I've been hearing about? Can anyone confirm?

These are the mods that have been currently done with my Denon D2K's:

- Denon AH-D7000 Wooden Cups
- JMoney Leather Earpads V2
- MarkL Dynamat Mod
- Beyerdynamic DT770 Headband Cushion

As far as I can tell, the only thing needed at this point in time is the recabling. Is there anything I am missing?

So your stance is that the slightly stiffer back plate for a driver is worth $300, and makes more of an impact then wooden cups?

Yeah that's about it. Although I admit I don't really like the Jmoney pads.

I dont think you mean extenuated, and if you do then your not talking about the Q701, the sound stage on the Q701 could be described as many things, expansive, large, huge, massive, incredible, I could continue but i think you get the idea, the sound stage on the q701s is anything if not extenuated.

I have compared the AH-D2000 and AH-D5000 and find it hard to believe a wood chamber can make that much of a difference. I have not compared the LA-D2000 and LA-D5000 and probably never will now that Denon discontinued the line so I can't say anything thumb.gif

If you don't mind me asking, why not?

I guess comparing two with the exact same cups would be the only way to tell for sure. I'd bet the cups would make most of the difference though.

They were a bit too thick IMO, and also were not as comfortable as the stock pads.

Wood does offer different significantly different acoustics than polymer though.

Eyeballing the HiFiMAN HE-500s or Audeze LCD-2s atm, will be getting a tube amp prior but both will bought in same time frame, anyone have any thoughts, don't need a comparison so much as just whether you really think the Audeze warrants the extra $300

you might have already seen this, but 'DavidMahler' on head-fi rates the LCD-2's above the HE-500's (#12 & #16 respectively) in his 50+ headphone comparison. i have no personal experience with either.
