Crazy9000, did you markl yours? I'm thinking about possibly doing that mod, but I'm not sure if it would be worth the effort on the D2000.

I haven't done it to mine, as I like the stock bass. I've been thinking about doing it partially just to see how that sounds though.

Yeah, supposedly the cup on the D2000 and D5000 are rather different, other than the woodie that is. So I wonder how applicable the mod will be as well.

I believe they have the same shape and thickness, just the D2000 is plastic/aluminum, the D5000 is wood. People have done the Markl mod and reported excellent results

Yea the Headfive/Corda Areitta probably does max of a 80ohm headphone anything more is really pushing it.

And finally you come to ure senses on the DT770 its all just DA BASS!

You dont wanna try Grado/Alessandro Namrac ?

I think I remember reading somewhere that the drivers are positioned a little differently in the cups, maybe I'm just imagining things.

Edit: Maybe the Headfive is a current monster, but doesn't deliver enough voltage, so the D2000 is probably a better match for it than the HD600.

No, I'm confident the Headfive could handle a 250 ohm phone just fine, it's just 600 is a bit much. And I loved the 80 ohm's sound. There was a lot of bass, yes, but it was fast, went very, very deep, and sounded great. It was smooth, warm, and thick, like maple syrup for your ears. I loved my 80's, and I'm confident I'd love the 600s if I had an amp that could sufficiently drive them.

No, I don't want to buy Grado, not since my ears were raped by the SR80s.

edit: yes, trigger, that's more or less what I've gathered. It's really better with low-impedance.

Easily a better match!

I wouldn't mind trying the D2000s either
