Denon AH-D7000 - Page 387

post #5791 of 7185

Tonight was suppose to be my night off/away from the listening room. All the recent chat about isolation-closed-open-semi open has got me wanting to enjoy the D7000...right after the 49er's/Patriots!

I'd agree, they keep sound in well enough, though I do know some people who listen to music loud enough that they do leak a moderate amount, but they have a deaf wish (hehe).

Yeah, the A900s don't isolate very well either. The W3000s are much better in that regard. But the Ed.8 and DT770/600 headphones were the best for isolation. The D7000/TH-900s were the least isolating (and leaked the most) of all the closed headphones I've tried/owned.

In my experience, they leak at any listenable volume. I use to have them for my bedside rig cans, and even at low volumes, late at night, my wife could still hear them. And at the same time, I could hear her loud breathing once she fell asleep. So I would have to turn them up a little, but then the sound leaking out would wake her up. So these didn't even isolate good enough for me to be bedside cans at low listening. For me the isolation is just a notch better than open can, and pretty much on par with semi-open cans. But they are some sweet sounding cans though.

How long has it been since they broke up?

Wonder if there's going to be a bastard-child suddenly show up with super powers or something.

That's strange, since in my experience they have to get pretty loud to leak. Whenever I ask my roommates whether they can hear anything coming from my headphones (they are usually a few feet away), they say no. And when I let other people try them, I never really hear anything unless the volume is at a moderate amount higher than my listenable volume.

Nano x * 10^-9
Different by a few factors of magnitude, you see.

^ Denon could have made up the name for the drivers in both cases without Fostex giving a #*%#)% about it. I don't think Fostex has anything to do with the new line-up.

You are right - I have the ATH-A900 and even with some extra internal felt dampening added they don't isolate any better than a D2000/7000 (and with the re-cable also sound similar).

Has anyone here compared the 7000 to the 7100 yet? I still love my 7000s

Yup. The 7100 are a major downgrade from the 7000

I've been trying to get my paws on a D7100.  Hope it happens soon.

Please do.  As a subscriber I'm interested in your thoughts and what the headphone really looks like.
