My pleasure! The PS500 looks great to own, I wish it was there when I bought my first Grado (a RS-1).
Denon AH-D5000 and -D7000 are a thing of the past, the company now sells AH-D600s and AH-D7100s instead.
But Fostex, which's mother company (Foster) has designed and been producing those headphones for Denon since the beginning, have released worthy successors of the D5000 and 7000. Check them out, they're called: TH600 (released in Japan the 25th of this month, 800-900 dollars) and the almighty closed-back flagship TH900 (1800-2000$, competing with the LCD-3 and winning in some cases).
Thanks I will check the TH600/900 cans. So are you saying that the D5000 &D7000 are not as good as the new Denon D600's/ D7100 ...??? .
When you said.... Re PS500's v Mag V5's " They offer a performance that is comparable to the Magnums yes, but still a very different sound signature." did you mean ....re bass../Treble ?? is there more or less ... bass /treble etc than stock PS500 ...It is almost impossible to get apair to demo in England ...pian in the ass really ..lol
