Denon AH-D7000 - Page 26

post #376 of 7186
I have a D7000 - borrowed from Denon Austria (great thanks!) for 3 weeks.

I compared them with my K701, K702, K271 MKII, HD600 used with "green" Solo and WNA MKII, Marantz SA 7001 KI
heared with many of my CD's or SACD's - classic, jazz, pop & rock, celtic, ethno, ...., testtones (16 ... 500 HZ too)

The D7000 is a class upper of all my headphones, superb bass (very good for pop, jazz - "Ray Brown like it", chamber music), nice mids and highs, very natural, detailled, warm sound image, superb brass and drums, .....

My feeling - a burning in time about 50 hours helps to balancing this headphone, at beginning the bass was to prominent.
My feeling a short start time with music about 2 ... 4 minutes each day helps too.

PS: A full review I have published in German and Austrian forums too

Burn in seemed to control the bass on my d7000's as well. I actually enjoyed the prominent bass. It's still there, but perhaps not as overpowering as before.

you have got to buy a copy of 'baby got back' by ll cool J.
the hard thumping action in the top of the number was literally ass-pounding my face with the Denon AH-D7000 and the Headroom Max amp.

with just the apogee duet via the headphone out and firewired with a Macbook Pro 2.4g, the pounding was not as vicious, but still realistic enough for that live DJ on the floor feeling.

while a lot of the deep juice was lost with just an iphone connection.
if not for the weight, i would choose the Denon AH-D7000 over my favorite Shure se530 for the daily run.

Lol, that description made my day. I'm not generally an LL Cool J man (Notorious BIG fan here), but I'll definitely have to check it out for the fun factor. PS don't you mean sir-mix-alot?

guilty as charged!

as you can see, i am not a LL Cool J fan here either, or rap generally.

that 'baby got back' track was from the Charlie's Angels soundtrack and surely, it is sir mixalot. (i imagine that 'sir' is headin' down queens blvd right around now to pound in my face!) big sorry!

How efficient is the D7000? Is it comparable to the D2000?
post #382 of 7186
I tried some D7000's and found them 'ok' - not that much better or different to the 5000 - or is it just me?

Maybe because I use the d5000 but with the well known 'markl' mods and the Jena J22 cable conversion?

Anyway as an alternative to stock d7000, you could pick up a used d2000 or d5000 and customise?

I still think the markl / jena D5000 beats the 7000 and pretty much everything else ive had and heard.

Of course its all subjective and just my opinion!

Efficient in what sense? The sensitivity?

The D7000 has a higher sensitivity than the D2000/D5000. The D7000 is rated at 108 db/mw. The D2000/D5000 are 106 db/mw.

It's just you. Stock, there's a major difference. They share the same sound signature, only the D7000 is a huge improvement. For me, well worth forking out the extra dough.

However this might explain why you didn't find them much different. I haven't heard the markl modded D5000, but I can imagine it bringing them closer to the D7000.

Is it as good straight out of an ipod as the D2000...unamped.

Meh, just in case someone doesn't mind waiting a while before they get them back in stock.

If you do aggole search you'll find at least a dozen sites selling them in that price range but all backordered. so you may end up paying them but never see them.

I do a googe search for these things at least once a week and almost every site that lists them in that price range, has had them on backorder since at least October.

But J&R is pretty reputable authorized dealer compared to those other sources and has a real return policy, so I'd rather go with J&R. You can always cancel the order easily if they are taking too long.
