Bass isn't muddled on my my dx1000.

Nor mine - FAR from it. The DX1000 has outstanding bass definition. It has powerful bass, but outstanding pitch and tightness.

I'll vouch for the D7000 bass! It really is a matter of perspective, but from mine, hard-hitting is one of the last expressions I would use to describe the bass of the HD800s, especially in comparison to the D7000s.

The basses of DX1000 is closest to the speakers', among all headphones I have heard. The tone of the bass from the DX1000 is superb, for a pair of headphones.

I never heard the DX1000 (here in Austria, Vienna no dealer have them and I could loan one) but I own the D7000 - the bass of the D7000 is superb too, dependent from the HA source - at low output impedance (as the tested Grace m902 have) the bass dry - with my »green« Solo (GSP Audio) and his AFAIK 68 Ohm the bass warmer, thicker.

I could only compare them with K701 (K702).

PS/OT: I had the chance to test a Grace m902 for a while.

The Grace m902 is a superb HA with DAC - but I cannot say which sound better for me, my Marantz SA7001 KI with build in DAC + Solo ore the Marantz (only as player) S/PDIF + Grace m902 DAC & HA

I heard them with a MacBookPro over TOSLINK and some 24/96 files too, perfect ..... a bit to perfect for me, something or other I missing, but I cannot say what

Grace m902 are a bit more neutral (as the Solo), very detailed, almost perfect (a bit to perfect for me).
Solo warmed, a bit more (thicker) bass.

ive just done two a-b compares of the dx1000 and the denon 7000, i still have more to do but as of right now, i found the 7000 to have much more bass punch and more thick,, the dx1000 sounded thin in comparrison and lacked punch
i do think the jvc would have more punch if the earpads were smaller or moded,
im curious how edition 8 would compare to the dx1000 anyone?

the highs were close dx highs seemded to distort very slightly faster than denon when turning up to 11

dx sounded much better when forced puchsed close to my ears( but many phones also do as well,,

the denon def had mor mid in my opinion,, it made dx sound thin

have u directly compared these, because i did not find the denon bass muddied, and maybe you could say the dx bass was tighter, IF IT were There! ok its there but seriously lacking the punch imo. the denon had way more bass and punch and made dx sound thin
i will do a third and final compare

ha, i think they look radical!


how do they compare to the dx1000?

i would have to disagree, i thouhgt the denon 7000 had much more thick er mids than dx1000,, they both do different things better but denon has a richer sound imo and more bass and definitley more punch while dx provodes greater seperation, while ednon is more in your face

LOL

plus they arent ugly, but dx sure qualifies for an awkward can just as i presume the hd800 are.

Skylab,
Now that you have a pair of the D7000 would you like to chime in on this rivalry of closed can king?
post #118 of 141
I still prefer the DX1000. The D7000 are great cans to be sure, and I like having them around. But I prefer the DX1000 overall.

What would you say are both cans strengths and weaknesses? I am trying to find out what makes the DX1000 edge out the D7000 with many around here. Is it just that "je ne sais quoi" that has to be heard rather than explained in words?
post #120 of 141
I'm sorry to say that I do have to categorize it as "je ne sais quoi" - it's not anything I can really nail down. Both are truly excellent headphones - probably the best two current production closed headphones (although I have not spent much time with the Ed 8, which on my my one listen sounded excellent).
