Same here. There is nothing quite like the D7000. I love mine.

And yet, what they do right they do so well...--They're not going anywhere, and so I might save my money for an alternate/complementary pair of headphones...

Can anyone else relate? You can hear their imperfections (if you choose to listen analytically), and yet at the same time hear how they do what they do so well: A rich, smooth, big, full, tubey, '70's organic sound...

I had the TH600 as an audition loaner for about a week and did a lot of A/B with my D7000...........and could tell no difference. I'm a wood cup Denon fanboy, now with custom cups on both my D5000 and D2000 which bring their sound quality up to near D7000 levels.

A TH900 for the extra coin would give what added benefit for the $1500? You have bucks up go for it. You want to have some fun get some more Denons and have a pair wherever you need them. I have one at work, one in my home office and one at my main head Fi station. Kind of nice to have that quality and looks to boot.

That is a fantastic collection you just gave me a good idea.  I was thinking of getting another top tier, but I just may do this.

i found the TH-900 gave me a good improvement over D7k. mostly small refinements that make the TH-900 better as a whole, though the mids on the D7k are a little nicer, but the TH-900 is faster more controlled and more transparent.

 

with D7k it felt like it was an improvement over the mid-fi's but it still wasn't quite at the high end yet.with the TH-900, it clearly belongs in the upper echelon of headphones.

Is the isolation better on the TH-900 (or TH-600) than on the D7k?

 Its kind of the same but I feel like the sound leaks a little less on the TH600's and stock I'd give the nod to the TH600's for comfort as well but both a very good 

 

 

Thanks,

Purchased these used recently, removed original owners mod work on the drivers and replaced it with two squares of solid dynamatting.  No holes.  Preserved the bass quantity and eliminated a bit of the hiss and bite on the upper end.  I enjoy this sound more than the traditional Lawton Tuning.  Martin Custom Wood Cups coming soon.  Please like and comment on the video if you have the time.  Enjoy.

Speaker taps on the D7000. Just...no words

How did you connect the headphone to speaker taps ?  Maybe a pigtail cable (female 6,5 jack to xlr) ?

I followed the instruction from audioGd , cut n fixed. 4pin XLR...my first DIY cabling job...a mess, but it worked.
Then I bought another 4pin to 4 speaker taps cable. tongue.gif
