Used can be had for usually around 250-300. Sometimes lower if the cable is in bad shape. If you must have new, you'll not find a better price. I picked mine up for $250 used around February this year and then sent to Martin @ martincustomaudio.com to get recabled and wood cups. Wood cups were just cosmetic for me but recable was necessary because the standard cable is really long and has issues with fraying.<br />I use them a lot over my HE-400 mainly because of how light they are comparatively. HE-400 are amazing but damn can they feel heavy, especially if I'm doing a long gaming session.
What the... First a D5000 and now a D2000 massdrop???<br />Collectors item right here!
Yeah, these are expensive. D2K's float around for $200 used so if you want to buy D2000's, get them used. When they were still being produced they retailed for $200 shipped, so this is a lot more. For the same price, one should really consider the Mad Dog T50rp or Hifiman HE-400, both with similar (Most people will argue better even) sound signatures.

I actually already own the Mad Dogs, with both dog pads and Alpha pads. I just find them heavy and uncomfortable and they can get quite hot, especially with the new alpha pads. I have Q701 and HD598, which I love, but I'm looking for something closed (I know the isolations sukcs on the D2000 but it doesn't bother me) , I'm more interested the closed back sound not the isolation, and comfort.
D2k-like signature = Mr Speakers Mad Dog's with Alpha Pads? Hmm, I haven't heard that one before.<br /><br />I love my Mad Dogs, very comfortable, not heavy and not hot. I have heard such characteristics apply to the HE-400 (particularly them being heavy) but I have no issues with my mad dog's. <br /><br />Just my opinion.
I picked these up from Amazon years ago for $200.<br /><br />Again, these are no longer in production there is a reason for the price.

I know they're not in production. And I think this is a very reasonable price compared to what others are asking. I'm really regretting not getting d5000 before they went out of production.
For those saying they should be priced at $250, can you please point to where you found them for this price. I've been looking for a pair for a while, but haven't found anything. Even the used one's cost more than $340.
The problem is that these aren't headphones anymore; they're out-of-production collector's items. So you're paying for the rarity, rather than the performance. For a similar price, you can get the replacement-series D600, which seem to rate favorably to the D2000 yet are still considered to be $50-100 overpriced.

Dont EVER recommend the D600 as a replacement again. It isn't and will never be. Don't follow the mindless zealots, have a look at the Denon D600 launch thread on head-fi, I made some big comments (that got slated) for discrediting the inexperienced Flavour-of-the-month idiots that reviewed them saying they are great, and then later on I was proved right by people who had both and who had experience saying the D600 was SH*T.
Are you kidding me? $340?!!!
Agreed on the pricing. The pricing should start at $250 for individual buyers. Then it should get lower after that considering the group buying incentive. $340 is redic.
I would love a pair of these, but the price even with 20 buyers is just too steep. As WiR3D said, these were selling new for ~$250. Might as well put this money towards a used D7000 if you really want a DX000 headphone.
I love all these headphones and IEMs on sale recently. Please do not do a drop for any other headphones I want, my wallet cannot handle it. :(
Fantastic headphones! Bought & sold 2 times already...just because I'm too curious otherwise i would have kept them for sure.
You know I hate to say it, but as difficult as these are to find, claiming an MSRP of $469.99 is ludicrous. It was always $350, and available for $250. <br /><br />At $330 its fair considering they are difficult to come by.

If you have an Aune T1 - get the HD650, that is really a great pairing (have it at home). <br />It really does depend on personal preference, and if your a more V shaped person go Denon, if mids are more important go Senn. <br /><br />Personally I'm in love with my Denons, they are so romantic in the right setup, unbeatable for transporting you away to your own world, but the Senns are also fantastic, but in a different way, they do amaze you, but they don't place you in your own world, they put you in the performers world. Sorry if this is all cracky smokey but its the best way to describe it.
Actually, I agree with you. The issue though is I have had the D2000 and own the D7000<br />(and HD650, AKG k242HD, AKG K550, V-Moda M100)<br />But I never owned the D5000, the D5000 was slated as the smoothest of the lot, and the benefit is the added romance, like using a tube, the cost is a slight loss of micro-detail, especially with unsuitable amping. <br /><br />With the right amp, the HD650 is fantastic, and you don't even need to drop a lot anymore, the Aune does a fantastic job, and the micro detail on the HD650 is fantastic. It is a great headphone. But call it romance, nothing makes me smile more then putting on my D7000. <br /><br />However this is personal preference, and the Denons were always an oddball because of the colouration, so it definitely isn't suited to everyone.
