How To Build One Of The World's Finest Dynamic Headphones (markl Denon AH-D5000 Mods) - Page 53

post #781 of 785
Amazing to see this thread still plodding along. My denons have served me so well over the last 5 years (4 of which have been with the Markl mod). They are now starting to show their age, the pads disintegrating and the paint work starting to corrode (I guess from skin oils after so much handling). They've grown on me so much I can't bear to part with them. I'm considering making myself some new ear pads and was wondering if any kind folk on here could offer some advice. I'd be buying some napa leather and proper hand stitching equipment to do it. Panel sizes, stitching techniques and fitting the plastic disc are all on my list of potential difficulties. A respray of the frame might also be on the cards if I have the time and courage. Thanks guys.

I would recommend the JMoney leather replacement pads and if you are flush a set of MarkL wood cups.  They will take the Denon's to a new level.


See a nice review thread here for the JMoney pads: http://www.head-fi.org/t/443275/mini-review-jmoney-replacement-leather-ear-pads-for-denon-d2000-d5000-d7000

J$ went out of business, MarkL sells excellent Angle Pads which are a better quality than old JMoney anyway.

I want to get a pair of the ''quote basshead unquote'' Denon headphones I believe they are the Denon D2000 headphones that I was looking at. 

 

I really like taking things apart and seeing what they are made of, could I do this mod with those headphones I just mentioned? "To me that would almost be a selling point if I could''

 

I have Beyerdynamic DT990 600ohm Premium headphones and they are so wonderful I can not speak more highly about them, they deliver what I had expected exactly. 

 

But I do really enjoy heavy loud booming massive bass and of course I will not buy Beats:p So I think it is the closed Denon's for me for some extra nice bass.

Move quickly, my friend. My understanding is that they are no longer in production.
