Need Some New Cans - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Well I have to agree, the D2000 is more comfortable, The D2000 is more fun to listen to, it has more bass (like rap type bass guitar) The grado, to me seems to recreate the guitar sounds better. Also the bass is more controlled (like the kick drums) Sorry I am not very good at describing sounds. (like I suck at it)

So are the d2000's my best option at my budget/needs?
post #13 of 25
I'm entirely biased as comfort is a big factor to me, buuut I prefer the D2000's over similarly priced Grados even for rock. But then again it's been a while since I compared D2000's and Grados. If I were you I'd take a look at Head-Fi's used section and keep a watch on Amazon too. Sometimes the price really dips.

Thanks dude, i'll be purchasing a pair of d2000's when I pay off my 6870 in 2 weeks. lol

Honestly, having heard the D2000 and have ownership of the RX700 and 900, I can't say the D2000 is worth the money. The three of them sound so similar that I would't bother.

I heard that with the rx700/900 that they sound good, but the bass can get a little muddy and distorted sometimes. Plus the d2000's look like they are built well.

Do you really not think that the d2000's are worth it for my needs/setup?

ath-m50(s)

s is for the straight cable. These are literlly the nicest headphones i have ever owned. First pair i can wear for hours on end and never get uncomfortable. They sound awesome. I started noticing highs and lows i never heard before (i need some good speakers apparently as well). They are great for rock no crazy bass boosting and such. Also absolutely great for gaming.

Just my 2 cents.

Just get the AH-D2000s. If your needs don't change then you'll be fine with them for a very very long time
