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: My Denon AH-D7000 finally arrived, and I've been putting it through its paces. My perspective on the D7000 is from a slightly different angle from most people who have reviewed it, since I have used the previous generation of Denon flagship AH-D950 headphones from mid-90's to 2005 or so. It was already falling apart around 2001, and I kept taping it back together until it could no longer be fixed and looked like crap.
Pros: Deep/Punchy/Authoritative bass, soundstage, comfortable, aesthetics, easy to drive
Cons: Recessed mids, somewhat bright at times, does not seal outside noise
Summary: I was thinking of buying these headphones but unsure due to the price. At the present I have the Bowers and Wilkins P5 headphone and its a great headphone but has caused a few problems. Is the Denon AH D7000 a better headphone?
