I don't know man. I find the beyers to be much better across the board when compared to the D7000. The D7000 sounds great but not much better than the D2000 and D5000 in all reality. The main thing is the the bass is no longer a fart canon and is a lit better controlled. I just don't hear anything high-end from them. They sound slower than my beyers but they are warmer which I like. If they were to be a high-end can then I would say their sound is mediocre at best for being high-end. For $1,000 they sound like poo to me and I could never drop that much on them. My max for them would be $500.
Then again guys this is my honest opinion of them. I just find the D2000-D7000 to be largely over priced for how they perform. I'd take a DT770 over any of them any day.
PAYING 1K is poo on any headphone . I paid 649.00 new for my D7000 and got a great price on my T1 way under list and brand new. Love them both and yes i prefer the denon way more than the two 770 I have owned and gave the 15 year old the 770 for her ipod and dvd player. Its all good and everyone really does prefer different cans and everyone places their value on what they feel is good for them and I respect that but now listening to the T1 and they are my reference can no doubt.
