I know this topic has been discussed to death, but I just wanted to see people's opinions on this matter.
I have the D2000 and I do enjoy their sound signature and since the Denon 2000/5000/7000 have been discontinued (see http://www.head-fi.org/t/607132/denon-ah-d2000-ah-d5000-ah-d7000-headphones-officially-discontinued), I was thinking about picking up either the 5000 or the 7000.
Now, I understand that price wise, the improvements of the 7000 would not be worth approximately double the price of the 5000, however, that is only if the prices are new.
As I live in Japan, I have some sources that sell the D5000 for 20,000 yen (246 USD) and the D7000 for 30,000 yen (369 USD) (both used prices). With a smaller difference in price (120 USD or so), would it be worth the upgrade to the 7000?
Another ting to consider is that to use the D7000, I would need to go from the standard plug 6.35 mm (1/4") plug to a 3.5 mm (1/8") plug, which would require an adapter, which may make the D7000 plug unwieldy to use....
