Excerpt: Denon is a storied company with a historically interesting technical position stemming from its early partnership with Columbia Records.

Summary: A stunningly beautiful pair of headphones that produce an equally beautiful sound. Although you may need to sell a vital organ to afford them, they'll reward you with amazing reproductions of your music collection.
Excerpt: The sealed-back Denon AH-D5000 headphones have been long known for their performance with a signature warm, lush mid-range and fantastic bass.

Summary: Denon AH-D5000 har ingen vesentlige mangler. De er svært komfortable, ser praktfulle ut og spiller aldeles guddommelig. Kanskje er de ikke like egnet til heavy metal som enkelte andre hodetelefoner, men klangen og formidlingsevnen er av en annen verden. Skal man ha høyttalere som overgår det D5000 klarer å frambringe av spilleglede, vi det koste mange ganger prisen av hodetelefonene.
