  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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. 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...
  • 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.
  • Pros: Audio quality, build quality, value
  • Cons: None

A serious investment...but worth it.

G. Moore, Amazon

  • 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
24 May 2011
  • 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.
