https://crinacle.com/2020/12/28/gold-planar-gl2000-unboxing/ Initial impressions These impressions are based on the single-sided variant of the GL2000. General neutral-warm-ish signature with relaxed treble. Vocals tend to get honky and nasally. Not the most natural tonality, but not the most offensive thing I’ve heard either. Leather and perforated hybrid pads only slightly differ between each other (sound-wise). Perforated hybrids sound a bit more tonally balanced to me. Technicalities are decent but also nothing out of the ordinary within the $500 price bracket. Purely sound-wise, I’d still pick a Sundara over the GL2000.
