I absolutely LOVE them
I don't see why this headphone is so polarized. For the price, it is extremely good. The comfort level is absolutely amazing and despite them being heavy in the hands, they just dissappear in your head! The Soundstage and Imagining is just amazing! You truly do hear layers of music. It almost sounds like it takes every song and places them in your own personal concert hall. I know some will debate on the massive case it comes with, but I welcome the addition though I do understand the view of the price potentially being cheaper without it and an even better buy. Though the debate on that would solely depend on how much the price would be reduced. I personally love these headphones and GL seems to make some really amazing audio equipment. Definitely sounds and feels like something more expensive than what it is!

Good Headphone, Decent Value
ZeosPantera brought me here and to give these a try. I thought these are very neutral and a good medium performer. I prefer V-shaped headphones, but these do not do anything bad, but they do not do anything great either. Nothing about these headphones really stands out. I cannot describe what I hate or love about these. I think it is best summed up as if someone dropped these on my lap, I would not be against listening to music or play a game with them. However, if someone then decided to break into my house and just steal these. It would not stress me out that much. Why someone would come into my house to steal headphones, I just do not know. :) These seem like they should cost $450 to really be of better value or worth the investment.

Exceptional!
These are so amazingly good! The clarity, the frequency response, the easiness to drive, far to good for the price. The packaging is like these were made of gold (pun intended). Best if "burned in" after twelve to eighteen hours or longer (see youtube for burn in tracks). If you are looking for an intimate experience with your music, these are for you.

Good headphones and nice tune
These are less of a HD600 neutrality with some fun. Nice headphones and not as heavy as other planars. Although not much of sound isolation say like EL8C. But When in a room and people want a relaxed listen these are better than el8C in terms of fun unless you EQ. I didnt have much issue with quality but as nice as the cable keeps catching on belt or buttons on shorts. Like the individual wires split apart easily.

Made for live recordings
So I knew going into this that some revewers were hyping this headphone as the next best thing since sliced bread and some revewers just plain out shit on it . Truth be told this a headphone that scales up with better equipment, more power and the best recording you can obtain . If you like EDM then the gl2000 will please you BUT....If you love listening to live recordings THEN this is where this headphone shines!! Classic rock was just ok , Hard rock was good but there are better headphones for that . I personally enjoy the headphones in my collection especially for their imaging. Indie rock is great on these. They're a large headphone so if you have a small head you might want to get dekoni nuggets. I just love them for their looks and feel . And I own focal clear mg if that tells you anything . So if you want a sexy classy looking headphone that sounds great , go for it and stop listening to the haters , there not perfect but they give you that holy fuck moment from time to time .

Man you and I are alike , I bought the kef ls50 wireless2 , thinking the best way to hear these things is the way kef intended, 270w of class d powering the woofer and 100w class a for the tweeter! A great starting reference point to what hifidelity should sound like ? I find them still on the warmer side which i still like and I find my focal clear mg to be all this with MORE clarity and sparkle, I understand what you mean though

I just ordered my GL 2000. I also ordered the IFI zencan and the IFI zen DAC v2. I also have the darkvoice. How they sound on both? I have a AIRIST R-2R DAC as well. I need details lol. :)

Sounds Great!
This is my second foray into mid range audiophile headphones (own akg 712s/ Bose QC35s / and some chifi earbuds). In general it sounds great on most genres, theres alot of sparkle i think in the higher tones and great base response. I did notice a mild nasally tone on some speaking videos but not really that bad now that i ve heard it. Comparing to my 712s, it sounds more sparkly especially on background instruments and has more details and definitely better base. The 712s are less fatiguing though as there seems to be a wall of treble sometimes on the gold planar. the 712s have more of a focus on the main melody where on these its like you are surrounded by all the instruments and they re brought up a bit more. In general i prefer the GL2000s on almost all songs except some where the GL2000 brings almost too much attention to certain instruments. This is my 3rd week owning them i havent burned them in other than just using them on a daily basis so hopefully they ll get even smoother. using them on a 789 THX amp.

Nice Sounding Planar
I do enjoy these quite a bit with my Gustard H16 amp. The H16 has a 4.4 jack so I did not have to deal with any adapter or replacement cable. I only have about 5 hours of time with them but they are not as extended in the treble as other planars I have. Overall they are a pleasant listen but I don't find them any more revealing than say the BLON BL20 or Monolith M1060 for example. Maybe I need to give them more run time to open up in my head.

Probably the best headphone in my collection, but this is not a good daily driver
(4-23-2021) So, GL2K. I first got caught up in the Zeos hype for this headphone. After waiting 2-3 months for it to arrive. I finally got my Gold Planar GL2000... and... well, it was disappointing. First of all, they require a good deal of burn in, whether that's real burn in or perceptual, I don't know for sure, but it still has an adjustment period. So part of my disappointment stemmed from the fact that my first impressions of sound where not fantastic. Another contributing factor was that I had just got a DarkVoice(DV) in a week before these, and DV+6xx is just right in all the right ways. So the GL2K suddenly had some newly found competition, and I thought it would blow my mind. Well, it didn't, but.... I also have no intention to let go of these headphones either. I suppose I should explain what I was looking for. I was naively hoping to find an endgame. I thought these new amazing headphones would be where I would stop this audio journey, and be satisfied even knowing that there is better stuff out there. I would sell all my other gear and end my journey. What I got instead was like a bottle of something top shelf. Not something I would want to use all the time, but occasionally take out to just enjoy some truly beautiful music. So rather than freeing me of my audio pursuits I have now been drawn even closer to the dark side. While I am stopping the search for now, I have moved past my original intentions of practical audio enthusiasm, ie finding a single favorite drink, to a more crazed mentality, ie "one kind of drink is not enough for me". Since this is getting long, I'll try to wrap this up. The main reason why I am not recommending these is because part of me thinks that $600 dollars for an addition to my collection is insane. I would not recommend this to a friend because I don't want to pull any of them down with me. I also think its important to mention that this is overhyped. It is pretty good, probably my favorite in my collection, but I don't think it is the unicorn it was prophesized to be, and a lot of the time I just find myself wanting to listen to the 6xx on the DV. The 6xx's lighter construction makes it much easier to use as a daily driver, so if I had to recommend a headphone to a friend it wouldn't be $600. I would recommend something like the 58x since most of my friends don't already own amps, but if they did want to spend ~$600, I would say get a 6xx + DV instead. I think from a practical standpoint it is much easier to use, more comfortable, and still has a wonderful sound.

Pretty good.
Bought one due to Zeos' rant about how good it is. It is pretty good, balanced all across the board.
