Denon AH-D7000 - Page 10

post #136 of 7185
well this is bit weird, impedance 25 Ohm. must be a translating error. do you think they will be released worldwide at teh same time, or first japan then... etc?

edit: nope, no error, japanese is also the same.

Specs seem to be similar to D2000/5000. I wonder what have they changed ? Cable and wood only or is there some change to drivers as well ?
post #138 of 7185
Right, seems to be the same impedance as the D2000/5000. Since i am using only tube amps now, the low impedance coupled with the high price mean I almost certainly am going to pass on these. Since I already own D5000's, and since I use mostly my JVC DX1000's, the D7000 just doesn't make sense. Too bad - I bet these will be great for SS amp users, though.

I don't have a d5000 and have no clue what the inside is made of but they have a picture of the stuff inside of the d7000 you can compare with your d2000/d5000.



and after auto - translating their official site we can see this.
(it seems they have done something to reduce the bass vibration and maybe switched pleather earpad with soft leather)
-----------------------------------------

Flagship model headphone

Denon will put AH-D7000 on the market as a top-end model of the stereo headphone.

AH-D7000 strictly analyzes the component of the headphone such as "The resolution is high, and driver unit that invents the sound of amount of rich feeling", "Native wood housing with excellent effect of the sound", "Headband & frame work that achieves a light, natural installation feeling", and "Code wire rod that transmits a pure audio signal".

It is a flagship model of Denon who completed it repeating the audition and the analysis that happens one after another to obtain the sound with a high installation feeling and quality that can be concentrated on music without the stress.

The main feature

-

Microfiber vibration board adoption that reproduces sound that resolution is high and delicate

The vibration board with the attenuation feature that the sound wave velocity is fast and near the ideal by using the material of the width of the fiber of about past 1/100.

A smooth characteristic is obtained for an inside and a high region, and a low region ..amount of rich feeling.. reproduces, too.

Moreover, the vibration board and the frame are assumed the free edge structure, and assumed to be a structure that the movement of the vibration board is not limited by the resonance of the edge etc.

The movement of an ideal speaker has been achieved with the vibration board of the headphone.

-

Equipped with driver unit of neodymium magnet adoption with strong magnetic energy

A dynamic sound in which the dumping is effective is achieved by a strong magnet and the best magnetic circuit design.

-

Native wood housing with gloss coating that makes the best use of grain

The native wood mahogany material that the rigidity used also for musical instruments such as guitars is excellent high in the acoustical property is adopted in the housing.

To obtain the best tone quality repeating the analysis and the audition by not only the feeling of luxury of externals but also shape, a thickness of the housing, and various aspects until finishing up, it is formed.

In addition, a deep sound is invented with the shade with the depth by giving the piling paint of the luster finish.

-

Acoustic optimizer that achieves the best acoustical property by adjusting acoustic pressure balance before and behind vibration board

The acoustic pressure balance after the cook of the vibration is adjusted by radiating a part of the radiation [sareru] acoustic pressure through the acoustical filter behind the vibration board and the best acoustical property is invented.

The bass with few feelings of shutting up with amount of feeling is obtained in the bass region, and the modulation phenomenon by the bass said, "It is blown" is reduced, and the reproduction that being possible to pull out is good in clearing is achieved in the convex region.

-

The code of bilaterally symmetrical length and the quality is used for the tone quality valuing.

High purity 7N-OFC(99.99999% OFC) line adoption

-

Elastomeric + cloth rolling sheath adoption round which code doesn't twine easily

The elastomeric material that prevents the noise that arises from the touch noise etc. is used for the cover of the cable.

In addition, the cloth rolling is given the outside and feeling has been improved.

When installing it, the stress can be used few and comfortably because elastomeric doesn't twine delicately easily.

-

Three-dimensional sewing soft leather year easily fit head pad

-

The listening for a long time is a light magnesium frame that achieves a comfortable installation feeling.

-

6.3mm standard stereo plug and gold-plated plug

*

The conversion plug is not attached.

-

Gorgeous ..storage case.. attachment

How does that photo of D7000 compare to the build of the D5000? Can improvements be seen?

[had to edit my reply - I was on the previous page when I posted and didn't see the photo was already on the last page here]

Too bad. I was waiting on Skylab's expert opinion to make my buying decision.

I sure wish they made more sense for me!

My WA6 is great with low impedance phones. Sucks to be you!

Dang I wanted a Skylab Comparison of the D5000(Markl?), D7000, and DX1000

I'm not a basshead but I want a nice bassy headphone to add to the collection but one that isn't so overwhelming that it unbalances everything else. The MD5000(maybe MD7000?) sounded like it might fit the bill. I hear the DX1000's bass is a bit over the top or is that a misconception?
post #145 of 7185
Without run-in the DX-1000 can be a bit bass heavy but once they settle in you get tight, deep and very, very musical bass.

I'm listening to Dream Theater's Train of Thought as I type and the bass is crystal clear but doesn't spoil the balance.

Misconception.
post #147 of 7185
Ricey20, I will post my impressions later this week. I just finished burning-in my DX1000 with over 400 hours of play of which over 200 were with the Isoteck System Enhancer CD.

My first impression before the burn-in and in the middel of it was that the bass sounded a little bit too strong to my taste covering the high frequencies some and also I was able to hear what some people has called "nosey" sound. I think the lower mid-range and higher bass is a little overemphasized creating that effect.

Hopefully it will settle down nicely after the long burn-in.

One thing that really impressed me is the sound of the mid-range on voices.... it is magical and sexy.. full of texture. Probably the best I have ever listened.

LOL! Good one Larry

Actually my Singlepower amps also do fine with low impedance cans (with the right tubes). But that isn't really the point. Low impedance cans still are not a great match for tube amps, no matter how well they "do". For me to buy a very expensive low-impedance headphone right now just does not make a lot of sense.

As Silverrain said, this is a misconception. There is nothing over the top about the DX1000's bass. It may have the best defined, tightest bass of any headphone ever made (outside of the R10 and L3000) that still actually has anything close to flat bass response (a lot of "high end" headphones have severely rolled off bass response).
