There are several reasons why buying headphones used doesn't appeal to me, to be honest. However, more importantly, the D2k/5k/7k are no longer part of Denon's flagship lineup (also, sorry for spelling Denon wrong so frequently in prior posts).
The flagship lineup now consists of the D600 and D7100:
The cheapest I can find the D7100 is $936 (+ free shipping) which maybe a very good price, but it's still a bit more than I would be willing to spend. All of my headphone wearing is done on the move (walking, commuting, etc) so the D7100 might be a bit over the top for that purpose.
Can anyone comment on the bass value of the D600 vs D7100? How do Denon's isolate anyway? Are they as good as beyerdynamic's in that area? I'm surprised to read on the Denon spec sheet that both the D600/7100 have 25 ohms impedence - do they benefit from an amp? I really like the sound the Fiio E12 Mont Blanc is putting into my Beyer's.
Thanks for your time in replying everyone, i do appreciate it.
