my guess is their price will just level out where it is now for a used set. and probably stay at that point for considerable time

I'm not sure, and I'm not sure if someone has heard it yet, but it is an expected product to be coming from Fostex.

 

It may also be more expensive ($1200 or something like that). I could be completely wrong, though. I was mostly using the TH600 as an example.

TH 600 is rumored to be $1,200. IMO even if the TH 600 is a great headphone, its price will be beneficial to the going rate of the D7000. And, if the D7000 were to sound on par with the TH 600, its value undoubtedly will be strong. Either way I see it, if the TH 600 is selling for over $1k its good for the value of the D7000.

I just recently burnt in a stock D2000.  Sound so nice....looking to upgade to a D7000.  But it's so hard to find a decently priced D7k now.  Anyone who is thinking of releasing a D7K back into the wild, let me know.

 

Y'all think that Denon may realize their mistake now and re-release the Dx000 line?  Crossing fingers and legs...

Impossible. Denon lost the company that made the drivers for them.

"Mistake" would be a matter of perspective, as the best produced doesn't always bring the best profits. Denon, in my view, is trying hard to reconcile two very fast moving targets: Headphone enthusiasts On-the-go and the Brinks truck! How to make them meet? Love 'em or hate 'em, The Beats really shook up the status quo!

 

Good thing I've got my D7k's resting comfortably inside the listening room.wink.gif

Well it all about the bengis now.  If Denon can cough up the money I am sure Fostex can come up with a new Dx000 for Denon.  But that way Denon will loose face.  And since Japanese care too much for that, I dont see it happens unless the headphones dept. makes lots of profit for Denon.  It would be great if Denon can go back to be a top contender and forget about the new (Beats) look and back to making sexy phones.

Like Silent One said, mistake or not is subjective. We have to look at sales figures to draw that conclusion. The fact that Denon just came out with even more gimmicky stuff probably means they're doing fine. Some of their models are now perfectly priced to appear in Apple Stores, I hope they will do so since there is no better way to appeal to the mass consumers market than that. 

 

I personally have come to appreciate Denon's efforts, for a company with more than 100 years in the audio world, discontinuing the Dx000 series and releasing something like the D400, D600 and D7100 must have been a hard decision for them. But the market has changed, so have consumers' preferences. They need to either adapt, or end up like Stax. And Stax only makes headphones, while Denon makes all kinds of stuff. 

 

I hope they will do something like Audio Technica does, which is releasing a limited classic statement product of some sort, like the W3000ANV, alongside the D7100. They did that in the past with the A100, but that was when the old line was still around, don't know if they will do it again.

I own both and I don't feel Denon made a mistake with the new line, it has just evolved.

I would never take my D7000 on the road but I don't have that fear with my D7100, they are a travel friendly can, they even come with a bag and a shorter mobile cable.

I'd buy the D7000 if someone could make some pads that like like the ones from the Sennheirse HE90...


Meaning, stock D7000 pads with a velour top where the pads contact the skin.

I'd trade you a pair of D7000 with velour pads for a set of HE90...

Hahaha. I'd trade everything I own for the HE-90.
