  • 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.

Best Headphones I Have Ever Heard

Desertmadness, Beach Audio
15 September 2009
  • Summary: These are high end audiophile headphones with wonderful sound. I liked them better than my Sennheiser HD650 phones. The Sennheiser bass sounds indequate in comparison. The highs of the Denon are Angelic and open without harshness. The Denons can be played well from an iPod, however, the Sennheiser HD650 cannot. Both benefit dramatically from a headphone amp though. If the price is too much, look at the Denon AH-D2000.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish

  • 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: 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.
