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.
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.
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.
Pros: Beautiful looks and great sound
Cons: For a "closed" can, they isolate no better than some "open" cans
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.

Pros: deep bass, comfortable when you set it up properly, looks good, strong cord
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.
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.
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.
Summary: after years of upgrading headphones i have now arrived at the place i wanted to be. if you cannot afford the price wait untill you can as these are the best phones i have used. others will be cheeper but these are a quality item, relaxing and full of accurate sound with a mellow but present and...
