Denon 5000 HORROR SHOW!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

My old D5000's turned into this.

 

 

So now i need advice on what to get.

 

Anything that improves upon the D5000 is welcome. Except for the D7000.

Oh my God,what you did/they did to them...scarier than the exorcist movie....

Perhaps transplant the drivers into a different headphone casing?

Hmm, are you looking for something that has a similar tonal balance to the D5000?

if you looking for replacement sounding similarly consider D600

That is a no go! no sound from the right driver, too much of a hassle to try and repair/transplant.

thats a good place to start, i Amped my D5000's through a Onkyo Amplifier, it sounded fantastic, compared to the abysmal Audio-GD C-2C that sits on top of it, will this be easy to amp?

You can't just leave it at that!  Were they run over by a car or bike or something?

Yea, mate, you're gonna have to tell us now.

they have exactly same impedance as D5000 so need as much power to drive so if your gear had no problems driving D5000 you will have no problem driving D600

Impedance does not mean this and they don't have the exact same impedance (it actually looks fairly different). They actually don't require the same amount of power to drive.

Anyways, I haven't tried the D600 so I can't suggest them one way or another. But I would suggest the Kenwood KH-K1000 very strongly here. smily_headphones1.gif

Never experienced a kenwood before, how would you define them?

Dang that sucks bro, I feel for you.

 

Well at least now we know the mugger has bad taste in headphones otherwise he would have nabbed the D5ks instead of crushed em redface.gif

Sort of a closed HD 580 or HD 600. They're smoother and way less aggressive. Very easy to listen to, and better 3D soundstaging (but not as "spacious" - they aren't congested though). Very coherent.

Also I think the other poster wasn't talking about the Sennheiser HD 600, but the new Denon AH-D600. redface.gif

Also sorry to hear about the mugging.

oops, sorry.

 

There's plenty of other phones other than the denons. What are you looking for- closed or open headphones. Isolation/leakage matters or don't matter at all??
