The only disadvantage I've noticed is the headphone cup now rotates 360 degrees, which can cause the cable to get twisted up.
Yeah an update on those for me:

I drilled out the joint and Tapped it so that I could stick a machine screw in it. Now it sits on my head perfectly. Can you imagine? D2000's for 40$ shipped + 1 dollar in screws. Hahahaha.

HD580's with 650 pads being sent on monday! To bad my cable didn't come today so I have to wait 2 MORE days to use my MKIII!!!!

Two Three things worth noting today:

My GoVibe USB DAC is up for sale on Head Fi. It is absolutely perfect for laptops, which obviously cannot support a soundcard. Yes, this will sound a great deal better than onboard audio from a laptop. Lmk if interested, but make it quick, at this price stuff gets eaten up quickly.

The Moth shipped yesterday, so in less than a week I should be listening to it. Yay .

Joel - congrats on selling the Elite finally .

I'm thinking about getting the 600ohm version of the DT880 to upgrade from my 250ohm DT880's. What do you guys think ?

D2000's vs DT 770 Pro 80's, Some quick thoughts:

Now, as most of you know I like my music warm and full of bass. I just recieved my DT's and D2000's this week. I have finally let the DT's burn in and the D2000's were previously burned in. The first things I noticed about these cans were.

- The D2000's were smooth, really smooth.
- The DT's had a thicker, boomier, sound.
- The D2000's were much more balanced, not as suppressing.
- The DT's mid's were smoothered.

I love both of the signature sounds. When I listen to songs that I want a thick, hard boom and beat, I pop on my DT's. They don't leak nearly as much sound as The D2000's. The D2000's are incredibly smooth, laid back, compared too the DT's rambunctious deep sound. The D2000's do very well with all my Post-Rock/Ambient tracks, and the DT's with gaming and electronica. Daft Punk/Justice were made for the DT's where as Ratatat/The Album Leaf float on with the D2000's. The DT's flounder on the detail of the mids and highs, were the D2000's have a healthy balance.The DT's are not as comfortable, but are still nice on the ears and head. The D2000's are some of the softest pads I've felt, sometimes I forget their on my head. ON a side note :I thought the D2000's were bottoming out on the hard hitting songs, turns out my laptops 3.5mm jack is cracked and giving distortion to each set of cans.

Over all, I prefer the D2000's for all around music listening. Too bad for their horrible leaking, or I'd wear them to school. The DT's make great cans for movies and gaming, for those intense, gratifying explosions you can feel in your spine. I'd write more, but you've guys have heard enough of both of these cans. Next week I get my HD580's, and we'll see how the crisp, punchy bass stacks up!

I've been using my AD700's a lot, like these are definitely burnt in. So what should I buy now?

Check out this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/sound-cards...lain-amps.html and check out my comments. your next step would be a desktop amp, but unless you're running FLAC files and are really picky about music, your ADs+X-Fi are a pretty awesome set up [for a gamer/average user that is].

Aura's comments in your other thread are spot on. The mids are not forward and there's no symbilance like with ATH-A700's. The mids and highs are excellent, but not overwhelming or too detailed/forward. The HD580's are suppose to be much crisper, and developed in sound, punchier. I'll tell you how that goes. On a side note, I have a huge head, tons of hair, and I NEVER get sweaty with my D2000's, and I live in San Diego, where is 75+ degrees at night.

Also, I just got a Little-Dot MKIII in the mail friday. I waiting for my custom cable to come in on Monday, and I'll let you know the synergy of the D2000's with the MKIII, but also remember that I have upgraded tubes in my MKIII [although I think the HD580's will have more synergy in my bets].

So I read that.

I do listen to my music in FLAC and also game (I listen to music a lot more), so would a DAC or an amp better?

If you got a DAC you'd be bypassing your sound card altogether.
An amp I would say is the better choice. That way, you'd get even better sound, than if you wanted to go the extra mile with a DAC, you could sell your X-Fi and get the DAC. You X-Fi has a pretty good output as it is.
