Incoming review for those on the fence (hate me afterwords)<br /><br />I originally owned the D2000, then bought the D7000 the moment they got discontinued. The bass on the D5000 is the most of the lot, and it has the smoothest signature of the lot (A lot of discussions on HF let to this result)<br /><br />You buy the Denons if you want a smooth sound signature - The fact that they used aggressive in the description baffles me. These headphones are very coloured, and cover up the sound signature of most amps you plug them into, so they don't vary much from amp to amp.<br /><br />These things are perfect for many genres of music, but not if your into a very aggressive rock sound. Rather get AKG K242HD and a big amp if thats what you want. <br /><br />Denons are for all sorts of summit-fi speak people, by that i mean people who aren't to bothered about bass/mids/treble balance (because these are V-shaped and bass heavy) but who want a euphoric feeling, Denons have the uncanny ability to transport you off to your own world, and make you fall in love Lana Del Rey's voice - for one. I can't emphasize enough the overall experience that they create. Its a high of its own. <br /><br />I love my Denons. But here are a few warnings:<br />NOT portable<br />Leak sound like a broken condom<br />Loose fit (ultra comfortable)<br />Very picky on amps (the best is Solid state, with high current and less then 1 ohm output impedance - check head-fi for a Denon Amps list)<br />They really like a good DAC. <br />DON'T use tubes or other very coloured components (the headphones are already smooth, euphoric and very coloured, its asking for disaster or syrup)<br /><br />and lastly, when you put them on, don't plan on doing anything else for the rest of the day.
When are you coming back to HF? :)
