PLAYBACK 22: Denon AH-D5000 Headphones

14 July 2011
  • 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. This kind of business integration arguably makes sense, with Sony as the current exemplar of the approach (accomplished via acquisition). In the U.S.

Denon AH-D5000

14 December 2009
  • 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.
  • Pros: Stellar sound quality; comfortable; lightweight.
  • Cons: Expensive; unfit for use on the move; long, heavy-duty cable can tangle badly; sound leaks at high volumes.

Solid Wood Performance

Gear Patrol

  • 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). It’s a headphone befitting of the 100-year old Japanese audio company and here are our hands-on thoughts.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Tief einatmen: Dieser Kopfhörer kostet 700 Euro – und ist doch nur ein "gewöhnlicher" dynamischer Wandler. Aber was für einer.
