  • Summary: These headphones are alarmingly great.      Now, I want to first talk a little about myself. I am not seasoned veteran of Hi-fi. I do not have any experience with multi-thousand dollar listening setups. These are simultaneously the most expensive and greatest headphones I've owned. Of course, their quality is overwhelming to me.
  • Pros: beautiful sound, feel, aesthetics
  • Cons: Not sure

  • Summary: I purchased these from a fellow head-fier a week ago, and just got these in today. I got home at 3:30PM eastern time, and it's now 8:30 and apart from grabbing a quick dinner upstairs, these headphones have been glued to my head all day. I'd like to think I can give a fairly good review of what I've experienced so far.   Firstly, ergonomics: These headphones are comfortable as all hell.
  • Pros: Great bass, clear highs, extremely comfortable. Beautiful. Long cord
  • Cons: Long cord can be a handful when trying to use it with a portable device

  • Summary: Please note: this is a re-post of my original review from 2007. This is the link to Denon’s website, if you read Japanese:http://www.denon.co.jp/company/relea...2000_1000.html I bought the D5000’s from Pricejapan.com for $553 shipped via DHL express. I received them within one week of order. Some immediate things I noticed: 1.They are perhaps the most comfortable headphone I have ever worn. I always thought Beyerdynamic headphones were unbeatable in this regard.
  • Pros: Beautiful looks and great sound
  • Cons: For a "closed" can, they isolate no better than some "open" cans

  • Summary: Denon's first high-end headphone in a very long time is a VERY good one. I bought the D5000’s from Pricejapan.com for $553 shipped via DHL express. I received them within one week of order. Some immediate things I noticed: 1. They are perhaps the most comfortable headphone I have ever worn. I always thought Beyerdynamic headphones were unbeatable in this regard. The Beyers are supremely comfortable, but they clamp a little more, and are a little heavier, than the Denons.

  • Summary: Dark mahogany, faux leather, and striking metal accents give the D5000 the look and feel of luxury phones. Out of the box, it's clear that there's an accent on bass - like a layer of bass "padding." They look eerily like the wood JVC HP-DX1000 - even have the same bass-head power. - Comfort: The pads are very soft, though clamping is relatively firm. There's maybe a bit less space around the ears than you might find in the K701, though the D5000 has a lighter foam.

  • Summary: After 2 years of owning it, I can say those are one to stay in my home. I do production on them, I do DJ mixes, I listen to music. Bass is so strong and well defined for electronic house music and jazzy house, I don't listen to other genres so often so I can't tell, but if you want something for house and you're lucky on eBay those are one to consider.
  • Pros: deep bass, comfortable when you set it up properly, looks good, strong cord
  • Cons: was pricy

  • Summary: Verifying with new amp and dac
  • Pros: A pretty enjoyable sound for thoose in favor of a little more slam, feels pillow-like and are not as expensive as much of the others
  • Cons: Could use a little more balanced aspect in terms of frequency balance together with speed and micro-details

  • Summary: I purchased the Denon from Amazon in February 2012 for $465 and, of course, the price went down the next week. Regardless, this my first set of higher end headphones and they represent a very good value. After listening to them I can fully appreciate the difference between headphones in the $100-$300 range and the quality you get when paying $400 or more. It is well worth the difference.
  • Pros: Audio quality, build quality, value
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: No complaints for this price.
  • Pros: Great punchy bass that is by no means overpowering, awesome mids, wood looks decent, and extremely comfortable.
  • Cons: Balance couldbe improved upon, and doesn't isolate as well as some other cans within this price range.
