Excerpt: Denon is a storied company with a historically interesting technical position stemming from its early partnership with Columbia Records. Denon was both a recording company and a hardware producer from its early days.
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. The real mahogany wood-back ear cups are rare in the metal/plastic laden world of headphones (though we’ve seen some great alternatives exist).
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. Do them a favour, though, and don't feed them rubbishy MP3s
