JVC DX1000 vs. Denon D7000: a mini-review - Page 2

post #16 of 141
I'm not ready to give my final word on it but having had my D7000's for a few days I am pretty amazed at how they sound.

I may get a D5000 too... Awesome to see another Elite PRO owner happy with the D7000

As for bang for the buck do the D7000 really beat the D5000? Please say no lol. Anyone have experience with the Heed Canamp on the Denons?

Nice one Soundinista! Surprising result, I didn't expected that. I think I am heading towards the HD-800 camp - I am a bit of a sucker for their gadgetty hype ..... As for Ultrasone 8, I am sure it will be excellent but I found it a tad too ugly for my liking....

Hey, Sleepy!

Yes, I recall telling you, some time ago, that I'd flip a coin if I had to choose between the DX1000 and the D7000. Well, not flipping anymore!... But it took a while to be sure. These cans are monsters.

As regards the Edition 8, looked quite acceptable to me. Moreover, that's some kind of exotic leather covering the earpads of the Edn. 8, isn't it? And isn't that velour in the $1,400 HD800? Hmmmmm...

Cheers,

do the D7000 have equally bad isolation as the D5000? Don´t know if I should be happy or said about saved money lol.

you're not paying extra $$$ for increased isolation.

Want isolation? Buy Bose

It will be interesting to see the DX 1000/D 7000/D 5000/Darth V3 or 4/Edition 9/Edition 8

That would be very interesting.

The main issue with all that bass is that it can become quite fatiguing over a given period of time - say 2 hours.

Still bass has its role and if that D 7000 for $599.00 sale was still going I'd definately own a pair just for those rare occasions when I just want to have fun.

Yes I do why not? Several benefits. Blocks outside noise. Let you focus 100 % on the music nothing else

Thanks for the review, I've had my DX1000 for four months and love them and this is just another validation of its soundstage and bass qualities. I am in for the HD800s too but I will use them to complement the DX1000s. I don't think an open phone can approach the bass impact and fullness of a closed, although maybe the speed. I read that the was was better than the K1000s but we will have to wait and see. I am sure at canjam there will be a chance to compare them to others, but by then it will be to late for me of course. Hopefully my quiver will be filled by then.

DX1000 how good does that isolate from outside noise? Out of my price range but can always dream lol

Isolation is quite good. Not 100%, but what is? My wife watches TV using our surround system and I listen to the DX1000 at the same time. Unless she really cranks the volume up the surround sound is hardly noticeable. Of course, the louder you play the music the better the isolation

If the isolation is important for you, the Edition 9 would probably be your best choice.

(I already expect it to be excellent SQ-wise elsewhere.) Be as specific as you can. Don’t just tell me it’s much better than the HD650. I’ve known much better than that. And rest assured I hope the HD800 (or the Ultrasone Edition 8, preferably both) proves to be the DX1000 and D7000 killer. I have no allegiances or emotional attachments or financial stake in the matter. I just want the loudest bang for my buck.
In german forums some wrote the DX1000 have a canned-sound, is this true?
I have only a D7000 for test - get it from Denon Austria (great thanks) - but I am unsure if I should buy the D7000!?

On the other hand I could not get a test sample of a DX1000 - JVC did not answer

Where I can found the Ultrasone Edition series on Ultrasone homepages?
Whats the street price of the Ultrasone Edition 8?

I search for a very good closed headphone.

My review of D7000 you will find here

It depends on your specific needs.

The D5000 provides about -10db of isolation, which is about average for a pair of full sized closed (passive) phones.

The D7000 provides about -8db of isolation, which is a little below average for a pair of full sized closed (passive) phones.


Having owned the D5000s, and currently owning the D7000s, I can say that they both provide sufficient isolation to listen to in a moderately noisy office (lot's of PCs, printers, HVAC unit hum, office phone chatter, ringing phones). As well as while sitting in the same room with my wife while she watches TV at a moderate volume. Also note that I personally listen at low to moderate volumes.

Now if you need enough isolation while riding a bus, train or a plane, or in a noisy factory, then look elsewhere (either look into IEMs, or active noise canceling headphones).


P.S. If you are listening at volumes loud enough for sound to leak OUT of a closed pair of headphones (such as the D5000s) so that someone else in the same room sitting 10 feet away can hear it, then you will not have to worry about headphone isolation for long at all, as you will be deaf soon enough if you continue listening at those volume levels. Trust me on this one, and please heed my warning.
