I don't think it's the pad issue.  There's a small air-gap between the metal frames and the cups (on the other side of the pads).  There's a thing calls Blu-Tack that you can use to plug up the gap; in case it doesn't work out, can always remove it.  But this may drastically/adversely change the sound signature of the 'phones, so be aware.

Thanks SkoOb, I'll give it a go.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

You could try the ZMF pads which are on sale .I have the alpha dog pads, which are similar,  on my emu teaks and it seemed to remove a lot of the sound leakage.

I'm with Skoob - they are designed to have that small amount of leakage and as such it makes them sound like they do - which is glorious!

I was thinking about upgrading the pads - the ZMF ones are a good price but I can't find any reviews on them. Is there that much difference between the different pad options or is it better to get the Lawton ones?

I've tried about 6 different pads on my LA7000 and ended up preferring the Lawton angle pads the best.  That said, I have the ZMF pads in the house for another headphone but have not tried them on the Denon.  They are very well made pads.

A 'stupid' question - how to remove the pads of D7000?

I try to turn them CW or CCW, but they 'spinning' and don't remove.

They are tricky the first time you're removing them - hold the cup in your left hand and with your right palm push down on the pads, compressing them, and rotate it 1/4 turn to the left.  There's a white ring mounted that engages the frame of the driver capsule that is sometimes difficult the first couple of times you remove them.  If that doesn't work, you can gently remove the pads from the rings by peeling the edge of the pads away from the ring.  Once the pad is removed you'll see the ring and how it connects to the headphone. 

 

After you get them off, put the ring back in the pad, and line up all four tabs, then as with the removal process, while holding the wood cup in your left hand, push down and rotate the pad 1/4 turn to the RIGHT to install. 

 

Let me know if you need any further info - I can take pics if needed.
