I currently own a pair of AH-D 5000's and I must say that I am extremely happy with them. They are my first set of audiophile quality cans and I did a lot of research to predetermine if they would have the sound signature I liked. I immediately fell in love with the deep, booming bass along with the sparkling treble. Mids are of coarse a bit recessed but the detail was great as well. I now find myself in a position where I can upgrade to the AH-D 7000's and I'm wondering if it is really worth it. From what I understand (I can only speculate), the bass from the 7000's isnt as 'boomy' as the bass from the 5000's but that it allows the rest of the frequencies to shine a little more. This kind of sounds like a good change for me because the the 5000's were maybe too bass heavy (as much as i love it, it doesn't go well with all music genres).
I'm guessing, still being a Denon, the 7000's will still be a bass heavy headphone, but maybe tighter and punchier? I'm just wondering what the exact differences are between the two headphones, preferrably answered by people who have owned both. So if anybody out there could help me clarify the exact differences between the two headphones to help me make a better buyer decision, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance.
