I just unboxed my new to me D7000's and the first reaction is these are the most gorgeous headphones I have seen. Put them on, thinking the comfort is the best I've felt, and the sound is matching the other impressions. Man, what a well rounded package. Crisp, clean and the bass is about perfect for my liking.

I have a couple of extra pairs of Alpha pads, after listening to the stockers a bit I might try them.

Did they fit well, Lorspeaker?

Can someone chime in on how the Alpha pads sound with the Denon's?

 

 

thanks...

just hearing th-900 for not more than 15 minutes, i immediately noticed how much better it is. it can still get bright, but its more controlled, its slightly less colored in the mids and more linear, and the bass is just as monstrous, same denon bass, but alot of the resonance is gone and it just sounds tighter and cleaner, while still being just as powerful having the same texture and decay. its just alot better and vocals seemed even better on it as well.

 

also th-900 seemed to be faster and less congested. i know which headphone i'm getting next tongue_smile.gif

 

Were you able to try the D7k's without the angle pads? In my experience, angling the pads any more than stock utterly ruins the highs and make the headphones completely unusable (physical pain from sibilance). My guess is that the issues you had with those D7k's highs would be fixed with stock pads.

i guess each one will have to tune his system until he gets an optimum to his taste.

be it a 900/LCD3/T1/hd800 etc

 

On MY setup, i am having heaven on earth..tongue.gif

I am gonna get stoned if i say its solely becos of the superb audiogd dac/amp,

the crazy deep spacious cabledyne cables..

or the supercomfylambskin..

it all adds up;

hit PLAY ..and celine dion walks in.

ps : i guess there is still some room for improvement...there are 3 levels of heaven...n she should be in a black evening dress.

That is why I always try headphones in stock form first. You may be trying to fix what isn't broken.

Has anyone amped these with the Little dot MKI+? I'm thinking about picking it up for these and think it may do pretty well with them.

I put the Alpha pads on my D2000 (which has the full Lawton treatment) and like the improvement. However I am only comparing it to old, stock and cracked pads so not fair.

After months I'm still sticking to my $100 better than d7k. I haven't tried out the th-900 but the 600 I believe would be the better value as you are getting 67% of the driver for 53% of the price and I just don't believe in wooden cups.
Should be more than that ($100 projected difference) since the BioDyna drivers have significantly better damping and significantly lower distortion.

I can't find any measurements to compare the damping of the TH-900 vs. the AH-D7000. Here is a measured distortion graph of the TH-900 and the AH-D7000 from Headroom.
