Words like MUCH and WAY seem excessive when I'm pretty sure 9/10 people would agree the differences are subtle; I respect your opinion though.

But I too, was not able to find any audio differences between the two. It was during a short public audio session, 

 

i think they're close enough that the fostex doesn't make sense at 2x the cost (at current used prices). sure, the lacquered cups are pretty, but i still find the d7000 to be very fun to listen to.

In retrospect, that's how I feel about the D2000 vs. the D7000.

I do miss my 7000's sometimes, but side-by-side, it takes careful listening to differentiate them. The D2000 gives me a lot of enjoyment for the $200 I paid for them (before they became so precious on the used market).

The law of diminishing returns can be a very slippery slope.

I still find myself getting lost in the music some nights when I have my D7000's on my head, the lights are low, the recliner is back and the Pioneer is cranking out some good tunes.

I count myself lucky to have found a pair of these flagships and with the help of Lawton Audio and BTG Audio with the mods, I love these. I'll be spending more time with them since I just sold my TH900 s and don't think I'll miss them.

Oh, and just got their new stepbrother today.....




The new models get a load of grief but I have both the D600 and now this almost new D7100 and love the sound they put out. And the bass.......well, they got that right.

WOW, you are the first experienced audiophile who actually like D7100, I hated it and still can't stand on D7100.

That was more than year ago I believe, did Denon changed the driver ? or it's the identical driver as D600 ?

wow, sold the th900, huh? my original plan was to pick up the th900, test it against the d7000, then sell the one i didn't like. 

 

but what i've found is that the d7000 and the th900 sound very different to my ears. the th900 is very refined, very "reference", and not at all boomy in the bass or shrill in the treble. soundstage is large and it's very detailed. the d7000, on the other hand, has much more impactful bass, is warmer, and it's a much more fun headphone to listen to. it's my headphone of choice for everyday listening, with the th900 (and hd800) for other listening sessions.

 

i'm curious to hear the d7100 now...though i know it's been panned by most reviewers, it would be interesting to listen to them...especially since for me, i do not find the d7000 to be a less refined th900, rather an enjoyable headphone in its own right.

thx, i see, but i can't check that about the L slots and foam, got only the s/n from the seller here in the classifieds http://www.head-fi.org/t/720682/

 

sent an inquiry via denon's japanese site contact form, which seems to work fine unlike the usa one, hopefully they'll know :rolleyes:

Yeah, denon USA is notoriously terrible. Let us know what you find. I'd like to know when mine was produced, too.
