  • 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.

  • 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.

A serious investment...but worth it.

  • Summary: First of all I agree with the other reviews here the sound quality of these headphones is astounding, but to get the most of them you need to feed them a high quality signal. These headphones are very detailed and will reveal the slightest faults in recordings and mastering.

Important update: AHD5000

Kleibergram "zipppee", Amazon

  • Summary: I cannot emphasize enough just how important it is to let these 5000 unit headphones "burn-in," as the pro's say. A lot of rubbish and nonsense is spoken by techno-geeks but it really is true. They change alot after a few hundred hours of listening, and much to the better. But these.

Denon AH-D5000 Headphones

TRCT, Amazon
28 July 2010
  • Summary: Choosing HIFI components from reviews is very difficult; it is such a subjective matter. No headphones are going to sound as well as good quality speakers even if you pay twice or three times the price of these hardly inexpensive 'phones. I consider the Denon 5000 to be excellent headphones.
