Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Appreciation Thread! - Page 4

post #46 of 4044
I got my Denon AH-D5000 today!

Coming from Sennheiser HD555 unamped to Denon AH-D5000 with X-Can V8 amplifier... it's... really breathtaking.

Can't actually describe how happy I am with this setup. The sound is just so good and everything is so new. Bass, Mids, Highs... everything is perfect to me!

Thanks Head-fi. Without you I wouldn't have found this perfect setup for me!

Wow. X-Can V8 + D5000's! Nice Jacke. You'll be set for awhile. Now don't forget to hide your wallet since the D7000s just came out.

Haha, yeah. But I think I will stick with D5000's
Don't regret it at all.

What I mean is if the mids are very up front or if theyre recessed. According to richierich, they are recessed so maybe the D2000's aren't for me.

Oh and when I said are they bright, i meant the overall sound sig.
Sound like you need some Grados.

Don’t want to disturb Denon harmonys but they were definitely not my cup of tea. Tried D5000 markl and D2000 - mids were just too recessed. So far it seemed to me everybody liked these headphones..

Well they won't be for me then... Can't stand recessed mids.

I have a theory about the D2000. Initially after purchasing, people go to head-fi and rave about them but soon they notice the flaws and decide they don't like them. The old extremely positive feedback they posted about them before the new-toy syndrome wore off still stays, misleading others.

This probably doesn't apply to everyone but the D2000's are very common on the FS forums which must mean something.

The Sennheiser HD580/600/650s are very common on the FS forums too, as well as many of the other popular headphones K701s, DT770/880/990, etc...Does that mean they have flaws too? Of course, since many headphones aren't perfect.

Everyone has their musical tastes, and it all comes down to what audio system sounds the best to them.

FB,
My completely stock D2000 are still going strong, having easily bettered the likes of HD650, HD600 and K701 (all RAL-recabled) en route. After settling on the Denon, together with the K501, my energies have shifted elsewhere along the audio chain: right now my Bada PH-12 is being heavily modded in order to derive even more listening pleasure from the D2000. The next step, God willing, is to APS-V3 recable the D2000. : )

Haha i am one of them, i have sold 2 pairs already, yet i am buying my 3rd pair with a different cable and mod. As a matter of fact, i just like the Denon as of now, and i start doing all these comparisons myself, because what others tell you may not be what you hear, which is also why i think a lot of people choose to buy a pair and test it out themselves. For those who doesn't like the sound, they will choose to sell it.

If we consider 1000 persons have bought the same phones and only 20 of them are selling it back out, then it isn't too common. It sure means something, the 20 individuals are liking senn, beyer, grado.....etc better than denon.

Please do not take me wrong, i am not defending denon because it is still not the perfect sound that i am looking for, but i think different people have different taste, if you make the judgement base on reading one's comment or review, then you will never know what you are missing. Better to find a local stores or attend some local meetup to find out yourself.

Just cancelled my order for the D5000 and instead bought the six volumes of Frederick Copleston's "A History of Philosophy"--volumes 1, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9--currently missing from my collection for about $60.

Sorry, but nothing in headphilia comes close to this purchase in terms of "bang-for-the-buck"!!

: )

A new D2000 owned here, and I'm new to the Head-Fi forums too

I've had Sennheiser HD 650 with a Meier-Audio PORTA CORDA Mk3 for some time, which I know isn't good enough for them, but money has been a problem.

Now I've bought the Denon AH-D2000 cans and I already love them to death, I'm burning them in for 200+ hours, once in a while putting them on and enjoying the tunes that are currently going on, I figure the best stuff for burn in is to... EDIT: Pink Noise! Works wonders

So after buying these D2000 cans, I decided that now I need a proper amp, since I have two ~300 EUR headphones ..and I ordered a Meier-Audio CORDA OPERA-analog a few days ago, I can't wait to enjoy both my Senns and "Demons" at their true level

I love the sound of the D2000, but I did trade them for HD600's. The Denon's just aren't too hot for classical music.

People keep saying this, but I haven't yet grasped what do they mean exactly, maybe it's because I don't have my CORDA OPERA yet, so my HD 650 haven't had their chance to show me how classical should be experienced?

Well I guess I'll chime in just for good measure...

Loving my MD5000 with Jena Labs recables. To my ears they're articulate through all frequencies and are quite surely my cans of choice at the moment. They've got about 150 hours of burn in at the moment and I do believe the harshness that people speak of pre-burn in is taming well. In addition to what's in my rig, I've also had the opportunity to have a go at a k701 and while I loved the precision and neutrality of those cans, I'm finding the Denons to be a much better all-round performer.

Unlike what's been suggested however, I actually prefer the Denons over the HD600s for classical. I'll have to spend more time ABing them I suppose.

Can't wait to hear these at 400+ hours!
