Denon AHD2000 For rock?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I've been told these are good for rock. Is this the case and if so what amp should i get. My source is my iphone or my computer. Apple lossless encoding. Are there any other headphones i should look at?

You won't be unsatisfied with a D2000. They work wonders for me. Also they have a killer deal on them on that electronic expo website... Got mine and ordered a E10 amp... Loving it for far.

Yes and no.  They have very good bass punch to give the kick drums an extra bit of dynamism, however the treble spikes plays extremely harshly on anything that's recorded or mastered less than ideal.  It all depends on the recordings you'd primarily be listening to.

The exlectronic expo site sells em open box does that mean used?

Yes they're technically used but they're effectively brand new.  I bought an open-boxed too, but it was just that, an open-boxed.  The headphone itself is pretty much untouched.

So when you say barely touched that means never used or did they guy put the headphones

I really can't say.  When I got mine the pads were in perfect condition, and even the plastic covering some of the parts was still on.  They might as well of been new.

 

As far as your question from the PM asking what amp tames the Denons, what exactly do you mean?

What amp is good for them

Tbh I havn't read that they're particularly picky about amplification.  They sound good out of everything.

If open or closed makes no difference to you, then i suggest the grado 225i for rock and alternative music over the denons, i own both and i mostly use my grados over the denons when it comes to rock/alternative/metal.

post #12 of 13

the grado's, imo, are way too harsh in the mids and the denon's are far too harsh on the highs. have you considered d5000 which does both better for me
