I got a question here, I am looking to buy a headphone for a long time now. And my choices are between the Audio Technica W1000X and the Denon D7000. But lately I've seen that the Beyerdynamic T1 is priced the same as the Denon D7000, even a bit cheaper. (D7000 for €850, T1 for €819)
I had the At W1000X and D7000 and much preferred my D7000 over the AT just sounded better IMO. I own the T1,D7000 and have owned every flagship except Stax. I love both the T1 and D7000. One is closed and one is open. The T1 has more transparency better detail and super spacial imaging . The D7000 has more bass impact and is closed but isolation is not as good except my family tells me they don't hear any music when they watch TV and I have them on. Both keep me smiling and they are the only two headphones I bought twice and are permanent residents. The HE500 is similar to the D7000 signature and open with better bass and transparency but do fall short to both my dynamic in spacial imaging and sound stage.
