    "The Limited Gold Edition has a unique sound due in part to the generous amount of gold that is plated on the chassis parts and the feet"

    No idea. @Torq wrote a blurb about this Limited Gold edition when he reviewed the M1 Classic.

    Found this today:

    https://www.head-fi.org/threads/wts-denon-ah-d5000.944124/ Denon D5000 $400 OBO

    Nice headphone as-is, even nicer with some TH900 drivers (Full Compass has them in stock again AFAIK), custom cups, new pads, fancy damping, custom die-cut foam rings. This has a fixed cable. Silver accent could be nice with certain woods. I know a guy who will build extra deep cups (or even vented cups) and has some overstock Bubinga. Just sayin.

    Might just pick it up myself and keep a spare pre-modded set stocked to sell post-tour. edit: bought em. ignore this.

    nice find. i loved the d2000 at the time for value. the d5000 has always been super tempting. now with small kids and a standing desk, the hanging mechanism makes me nervous. looking forward to seeing how you mod them!

    Good to know, this is a nice collection of tweeters measured in the same environment

    I saw another independent measurement that matches the dip Troels found. Safe to assume this is consistent.

    When paired up with full range drivers many people tend to run the drivers without any filtering and would overlap the range of the tweeter. Maybe the tweeters are primarily made for that kind of use. Very different from what Troels does.

    Even so, the Fostex datasheet seems very inaccurate
