Never mind previous post beat me to it...

He wasn't saying that there was no difference between the cables and drivers, he only said there was no difference between the frame / assembly, and there was no difference between the pads.

My 5k's still have the protective tape at the ends of the headbands . Inever made them any bigger than the smallest possible size so if you have a small head, think twice about the 5k's and 7k's as they are very large cans.
( I wear a 7 1/2 hat ) which is pretty avaerage. for a guy.

I don't go past the second notch on both sides usually. Sometimes I tick a third notch on either side, but that's the largest it goes.

Well, FWIW, the pads of my D7000 are definitely not identical to those of my D5000. They are quite a bit fatter and much firmer. Maybe that's why my D7000 is a tighter fit on my head, a perfect fit.

They also smell like leather -- unlike the D5000's pads. But I'm not ready to claim that it is leather.

A PS to #65 above:

I've looked again at the D7000 and the D5000 side by side. It's not very easy to visually distinguish between their pads. So, maybe I should have written "a little fatter". But they are visually distinguishable. And the difference in firmness is significant.

It would be good if we heard from others about this matter.

Since I sold my D5000 to help fund the D7000 I could not make a side-by-side comparison, but upon receiving the D7000 and putting 'em on, I immidiately noticed a more firm fit. It's not night/day difference, but it's definetely there.

Better fit for me too. I think the headband is a little more u-shaped and my D7000 pads are asymmetrical a la the DX1000s, one side thicker than the other on both ears. I haven't yet bothered trying to pick a preference between earpad orientations.

LOL--I can totally relate.

I briefly owned the D5000s last year and liked them a lot. However, I ended up returning them because they leaked too much sound for me to use at work.

Now, though, I'm putting together a dedicated home system. I was going to repurchase the D5000s but, after reading this thread, I decided to drop the extra cash on the D7000s.

They'd better be worth it!

For your ears sake, I am praying that they let too much noise in, and that you don't mean that they leaked too much noise out. Because if you are listening at volumes high enough that enables someone siting next to you to hear music leaking from a pair of D5000s, you are listening WAY too loud, and WILL destroy your hearing.

P.S. They are SO worth it.

If I had the extra funds I'd almost consider "doing a Skylab" and purchase an extra pair as back-up (like I believe he did with the DX1000's) in case my current pair breaks and Denon suddenly decides to stop all manufacturing/repairs of the D7000 (you never know, it might happen! ;D). They're, imho, that good.

Hmmm... I might consider the D7000 instead of the HD800. I look forward to direct comparisons (I'm in the second batch of HD800s, at best). If a lot of people consider them "comparable," then D7000 it is.

edited to add: Actually, make that "almost as good as the HD800," given the vast price difference.
post #75 of 522
Well, I just ordered a D7000 through HeadRoom. Hopefully their price is $700 or less - they cannot show the price on the website. I am going to call and cancel my HD800 (also through HeadRoom) tomorrow. $1400 is just too much.

Looking forward to incredible sound!
