Summary: I've tried D2000, which I liked a lot, and was curious about how good it gets with the top of the line. I bit the bullet and bought the flagship Denon. The sound is definitely more delicate and the bass is real tight. It's like having subwoofer in the headphone without being boomy like some car audio system. I listen to music for my enjoyment, and it's plenty fun to listen to music with this headphone.
Pros: Fun punchy sound, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish, The gorgeous look
Summary: If you can get a good price (i.e., not [$]) this is an excellent headphone. True deep bass with clear and grain free mids and treble. Don't expect the outside world to be blocked out too much, these let a lot of sound leak into the cups for some reason but unless you must have the ultimate isolation, they are fine. 4 stars only because these should be about $500, not $1000.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Speaker-like headphones
Summary: Phenomenal Sound. Some may state that the mid-range sounds are diminished but they really aren't. It's more or less the highly detailed highs and stout, authoritative bass that makes it appear to be subdued. I'm a casual audiophile that appreciates good sound but not overly critical. In comparison to my Grado and Senheiser cans I enjoy listening to the Denon's most.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I have heard many high end headphones, and own a few myself, and these Denon headphones are top notch. They are lightweight because of the magnesium construction, so you don't feel them on your head, they are beautifully constructed with the highest quality Japanese Mahogany wood, and sound amazing with all types of music, especially low end heavy music (they have an excellent low end punch for hip hop and rock).
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: For the average consumer, the Denon AH-D7000 are expensive as headphones go; but if you are looking for incredible sounding closed-back headphones, these can't be beat. They differ from the Denon AH-D2000 in subtile ways and my not be worth the extra money for most people. The 2000s are fantastic, and a better value overall, but the 7000s have a warmer and less sibilant presentation--which makes them less fatiguing and more natural sounding.
Summary: The Extinct Denon D7000
Posted on August 4, 2013by HeadMania
I’ve been waiting for a long time for an opportunity to listen to the famous D7000 and I am really happy I have a few days with it.
In one of my visits to Jack-Fi, I found a pair of forgotten Denon D7000 there, as they are specialized in speaker systems mostly. After 3 weeks I’ve been there again and found them in the same place and same position.
Pros: Full bodied, energetic & fun, good build quality, very comfortable
Cons: loose bass, congested, lacks transparency and clarity, poor imaging and instrument separation
Summary: I have been looking at these headphones since I started posting to HeadFi last year. and have always wanted to try them and finally the opportunity came for me to audition the cans and see if they were as good as all the hype that I had been hearing about them. When I first started to listen to the Denon's I really did not like them at all. Out of the box the bass was overpowering, bloated and flabby. They were also very dark.
Summary: Equipment: Luxman P1 headphone amplifier coupled with a MHDT Havana DAC hooked up via USB streaming FLAC files.This is about all that one can expect from a headphone, for better or for worse. Just to give you some background: I have been an "audiophile" for about 10 years, although that word still makes me cringe because I don't believe in paying more money for cords and wires than for for the actual products.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: Stepped up to these from Sennheiser HD-650's with Cardas cable. Both are used with [@] Gilmore signature headphone amp and also straight from the outputs of a PS Audio PerfectWave DAC. So far I do prefer the Denons, as should be the case given their higher price. Efficiency seems about the same for both. Comfort-wise both are very good, but the Senns do clamp a little too tightly. Isolation is far better with the Denons, which are a sealed design.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
On April 17, 2011 I asked "TheWuss"--a Head-Fi member who has a LOT of headphones--what headphone was best for watching movies. The next day--April 18, 2011--he replied:
that easy. hahahaha.
for cinema, the denon d7000 is pretty much without equal. (impactful sound for explosions, big and layered soundstage for immersive listening experience, etc. etc.)
On April 19, 2011--the very next day--I went out and bought the Denon AH-D7000.
