One thing i noticed is there is no angle of the pads on the new Denon's, I wonder how this will impact the sound.

However I still adore the super rich cups from the 7000 and from what I have been reading I think most agree. Time to find out for sure.

Old looks much more gorgeous.

I admit the Old design is way better looking. I want to see the wood, but the old design is also pretty fragile and I'd opt for a D7100 because it looks like it won't break when you touch it.

Hmmmm, on my third pair of Denon cans and never had a problem.

I just have doubts about that one screw holding the gimbal. Never broke a pair myself, but I still don't like it.

Voted for the D7000, but if the D7100 sound amazing...I will be looking forward to purchasing them. However, no one seems to be reviewing them even though they are already released.

Just because YOU haven't doesn't mean others haven't.

I myself have never broken one but there have been plenty of horror stories.

I havn't broken mine either.  Guarantee you that for 1 person who's broken their headband, there's at least multiples more who have never.  That's just the nature of online forums-- they tend to be magnets for horror stories.  I was involved with the same experience when the 27 inch iMac came out on another forum.

The fact that there are horror stories, is what is frightening. I personally have never heard of a M50 or a HD-25 breaking. Also Denon has known about it for a long time and made no design improvements since it's release.

 

Also, because there are horror stories, people baby their sets, thus leading to less breaking.

Maybe its just me but I baby anything I spend this much money on :) but yeah there's also the argument that if you spend this much money you shouldn't have to worry about them breaking.

 

I also haven't had any issues with any of my denons.

I think babying is the least you should do to a headphone you paid twice the price of your car for.

 

I mean we're talking about real high-end stuff here (flagships). It's a crown made out of pure gold and socketed with precious stones on it, like in Diablo II.

What? I've never heard of this argument. I think it's the contrary. Companies expect you to take good care of their flagship, so they put wood with slick finish, metal and chrome accents, everything that scratches itself well, materials that change color under direct sunlight, bio-cellulose diaphragm that has zero tolerance for humidity, thin films that shouldn't be exposed to dust (not sure about this one) etc. It's always their biggest headphones and for Grado it is a very clumsy design. All of their R&D went into the sound, the aesthetics, and the comfort, in that order... but not the ruggedness. Why do they come wrap in sensitive silk material, in a box that's a lot thicker and more padded? okay poor question...

 

You take care of your Rolex/Omega/IDon'tKnowAnythingAbout watches, if you want something to throw against the wall with all your force you buy a Casio G-Shock or something, y'know.

No kidding it won't be a thrash pair, but I also don't want to worry about the cup snapping off when I put it on my head 10 years down the line. I expect my headphones to last at least 10 years if I'm paying $1k. The fact of the matter is, the D7000 has a tiny screw that could easily snap under NORMAL circumstances that holds the cup to the band.

I voted for the D7000. To me those are one the best looking headphones on the market. I still have yet to get a pair, but based on my sons D5000 I would really like to have a set.
