Denon AH-D7000 - Page 385

I sprang for the pads only because, as I'd hoped, they are more comfortable. They have a larger contact patch - especially in front of the ear - which spreads the pressure out. I found the stock pads to be pretty good, but they have a rounded profile in that area which concentrates the pressure a bit. The added distance between ear and driver also makes for a slight increase in perceived sound stage.

I'm very pleased with the pads. Love these cans - glad I grabbed them when I did. My only regret is not having done so a few years earlier.

I went with the basic mods and pads, no cups or cables.

I have the J-money pads too, but haven't had a chance to do a full comparo of the three.

Soon, the D7000 will become as popular as mid-'50's Chevy Bel-AIr in Cuba. Folks will keep buying, trading, inheriting and patching 'em up.

anyone compared the d7k to the d7100?

i noticed a pair of the new models on ebay last week, went for around £500.

considering they retail at £1k, i was tempted.

I've heard the 7100 and own the 7000. Let's say the market prices for the 7100 dropping this quickly are a clear indicator of the SQ of those headphones, and the rising cost of the 7000 are a clear indicator of the demand for those, now that the successor didn't work out.

Your best bet is to audition a pair before making your decision.

I agree.

 

I bought a pair of 7100 and the detachable cable on the right ear cup would not stay in unless I held it in (did not snap in like the left ear cup).  I listened to them for a little while and they felt comfortable (minus having to hold the cable the whole time) and instead of exchanging them, I felt they were cheaply made for the price they charged.  I sent them back and bought a set of D7000's instead.  Very happy with that choice.  The D7000's just feel and sound like a well made headphone should.

With what little time you had, did they sound decent, promising or were you ready to scream..."Next!" ?

They weren't terrible.  I didn't spend enough time with them to really get an idea of the strengths and weaknesses.  If they were priced at around $600 they might even be worth a second look.  But at current pricing, I just think there are better options out there including used D7K's.

this is music to my ears.

my d7000 are going nowhere.

cheers

I'm with you, oldson. If I want new cans, I'm gonna keep my beloved and cherished D7000.

post #5775 of 7185

My D7's will stay with me a long, long time.

That's for sure.

I MAY sell the D2's and D5's next year.
