Anyone prefer the Denon D2000's over the D7000's?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Just wondering, as I just passed up the opportunity to buy some D7000's and went with the D2000's. I really love them. Is the D7000 really better? Or did I do the right thing by saving my money?

Yes, you did the right thing to save money, for now. D2000 actually has the best value in the D5000, D7000 line or probably in all 250$ cans because of its low price. But I am afraid after you get addicted to the Denon sound, you will inevitably go to the D7000, which, as a matter of fact, sound really really good. 

 

You still can save money if you are good DIYer, do a Marl mod and recable with some 6N or even better silver cable, then you get a fantastic phone close to D7000 sonically.

I agree with nkkuma1, you did the right thing to save money, but yes, the Denon sound is addictive.

 

I own and love both the D7000 and the D2000. These Denons happen to fit my head and ears better than any others I've tried.

 

Is the D7000 worth two or three times as much? Probably not, but the difference is quite audible -- tighter, deeper bass, slightly more open soundstage. I use the D2000 for everyday work and listening, and the D7000 for my best recordings and demanding studio work (I can hear the lowest frequencies clearly, and they don't leak). For mastering, I always listen also with my AKG K702, for comparison and reference.

 

The audio law of diminishing returns still applies, though. So, like Beluga caviar, Super Bowl tickets, or the keys to a Porsche, only you can decide if the cost is really worth it to you. Still, with the D2000, you're enjoying the headphone equivalent of Ossetra caviar. :))

Depends on the price of the D7000 you passed up ;)

 

In all seriousness though any of them are a great headphone. I would be cautious before modding/getting your D2000 modded though. If you dump money into mods and then get a D7000 you'll probably end up modding them again to get the best out of the improved drivers.

I recommend listening to the blade runner ost on your new D2000's you will be able to hear the trails of reverb clearly and well defined really a great headphone smily_headphones1.gif

So what exactly is addictive about the Denon sound that other brands don't have?

Yes depends on the D7000 price.
I had two options, D2000 for $450 (tax included) or D7000 for $700 (tax and shipping included).
Ended up buying D7000. :)
