  • 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: 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: 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: 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.

  • 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

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. The old adage rubbish in rubbish out is very true with these phones.

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. They are great but use you intelligence guys, they're not gonna be much better from an ipod on 128 KPS are they?
