Okay, maybe I'm a blasphemer, considering I'm getting W5000's instead :P

That is currently the million dollar question for me, and depending on the answer(s), I may or may not purchase a pair of HD-800s.

I have a feeling it is going to be like comparing apples to oranges. We shall see...

Even if the HD-800's would drop to around $1000, it's still a bit too steep for me at the moment.

I could use a closed can so the D7000 may be my next purchase regardless. I tried to catch them at J&R for the $699 sale price but missed 'em...crapp! They don't turn up used too often looks like...
We still got plenty of time IMO for the HD800.

D7000 aren't exactly cheap headphones or did you manage to get them at bargain price ?

If I simply have to be "that guy" and complain about something I think it would have to be soundstage as there's not much of it. Listening to some OST's right now and as far as imaging goes they're a pretty "traditional/normal" headphone in that sense. Not much depth or 3D going on.
But for me this is really a minor flaw. Every other aspect of this can is simply outstanding.
Anyway, a great reason to purchase the ATH-AD2000 to compliment it if nothing else.

wovenhand, get some of this: Amazon.com: Fiberloft Premium Poly Stuffing 12 oz: Kitchen & Dining

Now complete step 1 of this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/how...0-mods-299627/


You should hear an increased sound stage, and this is totally reversible/adjustable to your taste. If that isn't enough, I'm going to cop out here and say maybe you should look around at a different amplifier to see if you can get some better synergy.

EDIT: Actually, since you're running a WA6, you should definitely investigate a solid state/hybrid amp. By all accounts, you'll get much better sound from any of the Denon cans by running SS/Hybrid over tube, mostly due to the Denons' low impedance.

My next purchase in line is actually a K.I.C.A.S.. I want a nice SS to compliment my WA6.

...I forgot to add, the WA6 has a 8-99Ω / 100-600Ω switch for better matching the Ω of whatever can you're plugging in. Not that it's the same thing as having a SS amp, but it's definetely a nice feature offering better synergy.

I think that they're legit but they just listed today and I fear that by the time my tax refund gets direct deposited on Friday they will be gone. Besides we don't know for sure if they are really " IN STOCK". I find that I can only rely on that when buying from Amazon Direct.
post #29 of 522
BTW for those interested, I managed (with much searching) to find a direct email address to contact Denon and ask about the size/fit. One of the technical personnel responded that the headband construction is identical to the D5000. Thus if the D5k was a little loose (insufficient clamping, cups sit too low etc.) you will likely have the same with the D7000
post #30 of 522
could some contrast the HD650 (or 600's) with D7000's. I know the Sens well, but have never heard the Denons.
