Hahhaha.. They are fun indeed, I'm glad that I don't sell my D2000 and proceed with Lawton mod DIY..

Anyway imho their isolation isn't that good even some reviews call it semi open headphone, but maybe with Alpha Pad they give more isolation compare to stock pad or LA angle pad.

well it isolates about as well as the W1000x, which is imo acceptable as I use my W1000x as my closed portable atm. So I can live with something on it's sub par level of isolation. Besides when it's EDM... crank dat volume and pump some BASS at that point it's more a concern about not disturbing those around me honestly :3

Even with Alpha pads on my D7000 they leak a lot of sound. My wife was watching a show and could hear my music loud and clear unfortunately.

A lot of the sound from the old Denons leaks out of the Acoustic Optimizer that's around the circumference of their cups.

I do hear this often, but I've never experienced it. No one I live with (even when standing a few feet from me) said they could hear the music from my headphones.

 

EDIT: Oh, and I've used your mod for awhile now and the pad is nice and broken in. It's super comfy! I'm never going back to the stock headband! That's an awesome little mod you though up!

You grab a Sennheiser HD650 pad for $7 or so, then double sided tape it to the Denon headband. After the pad softens a bit with use you'll have effectively zero comfort issues.

That is brilliant!

Thank you.  :eek:   I have it on all three Denon's and my Pro900.

 

Got the idea (stole the idea) from a guy using it on the Pro900 (there's a thread about it) and just applied it.  Feels great, looks good.

Hey,

 

Just a few hours ago I received my D5000 and listening to 'em now. My first impression is a nice mellow and clean sound but I also miss that deep low rumble that I love in electronic music. As I'm a bit of a pads convert I'm curious what they would do for me. Do you have an idea yet how the Alpha pads compare to the Lawton's on this headphone?

 

White Lotus, still convinced of the improvement with the HM5 pads? Deeper sub bass compared to stock?

OK, got the Alpha's on Saturday and swapped them on my D7000 in place of the Lawton angle pads.  They are staying.  The comfort first of all is, as expected (remember I have them on both other Denon's), amazing.  Sound - the bass is tighter to my ears as well, with no other up or downgrade of the mids, treble or soundstage.  Oh, and with a vintage amp driving them, there's plenty of rumble with the loudness switch thrown..............I doubt I'll go back to the Lawton pads.

You don't think the D5000's have enough rumble?? Compared to what else?!?! :confused: 

 

What kind of amp are you using? Even with my iPhone the rumble was always there. And with my Arrow 3G its bonkers! I never got a chance to put Alphas's or my HM5 pads on my D5000's but I did on my D7000's and tried them on the D2000's and have some on my TH600's. For the Denon Line they do add serious comfort and hurt the sound in know way so honestly there is no reason not to try them out. 

 

 

Thanks,

 

 

:evil:

Thanks Oregonian.

 

@DemonFox, I'm using a new Asgard 2. Maybe it needs to settle in or I should become more accustomed to the way they both sound. Anyway, to me the most attractive bass was a DT880 with J$ pads. Maybe I am not using the right wording but the Denon just does not reach as deep as I wish.  Treble and mids sound about right though.

 

Equalizer here I come LoL

 

Edit: incredible how fast I forget certain things. J$ pads were very nice on the Beyers but with that also came boomy-ness on certain records. In that sense the Denons already sound better/tighter.
