My guess is that the only thing common between these two is that they both are headphones. biggrin.gif

A little difficult to get or demo, but look at the JVC HP-DX1000 or HP-DX700's or even the kenwood KH-K1000.  Probably the most similar in look and sound to the classic discontinued denon line.

I've been pretty much freaking every minute of every day since I acquired them three days ago.  L3000.gif

I feel fortunate to get them at that price. As far as I can tell they are in perfect condition. The cups haven't even a scuff on them & they sound great. The only thing I've had to do is tighten up the little screw cuz it was loose (the screws with the common issue). I actually pulled the screw out and retightened with lock-tight. Now I start my journey for the right amp . . .

You can, it's just gonna cost you £600+

I was lucky to get my D5000s for £290.

The Ultrasone HFI-780 is a bad comparison, it's the low-bass one in that lineup. The HFI-580 is probably your best purchase, honestly - but you really owe it to yourself to check out the Mad Dog line of modified fostex. "

 

 

"The Mr Speakers directly compare with my Denon D5000.

 

It is a blind buy, but if you're looking for something that the Denons (2000/5000) do, but with even tighter well controlled bass, an ortho like the Mad Dog with Alpha Pads is a very good direction to go." said Malveaux to me recently in a convo via PM I totally didn't ask him to repaste here.

errr. To be clear, the HFI-580 is a good bass can that isn't going to rival the sheer thrum and control possible to the D2000, The Fostex, on the other hand, are possibly even more capable at bass. :P

Sorry for bringing this back but... I wish they never discontinued this headphone. The newer denons aren't that good.

No, they really aren't. The D7000s are still around - they're fostex TH600s. But that's not cheap. Mad Dog 3.2's are a good alternative. Having owned a pair of m100s and senn momentums, I can say those are nice headphones around the same price, though.

D7000 is not TH600. D7000 sounds better than TH600.

M100s have a lot of complaints about them. I have yet to see someone complain about the discontinued Denon series. Momentums are pretty good though. Fit is a concern.

the m100s are NOT I repeat NOT up to the same sound quality standards, BUT their usability is... just, amazingly nice. I realllly wish that other companies would start using the same kind of model for customer service, replacement parts, and attitude towards durability that v-moda has. 20$ replacement nylon-wrapped smartphone cable with in-line mic. 15$ replacement normal cord. Larger earpads for 20$. I lived in a pair of momentums for a couple weeks, have to say I almost (almost) didn't miss the precise fidelity and thrum I got from my th600s. the dx000/fostex thx00 line has serious durability issues, though. I hate to be such a negative nancy on that, but for constant use with anyone who even moves their body around a desk, they're problematic. Replacement smartphone cables for the DH600/7100/momentum are expensive are all almost 100$. That's a big deal to me, since those are going to be the cables facing everyday out of doors use.

 

soundwise? HE-400, DT-770 (if you don't mind a DISTINCTLY recessed treble - sometimes I had trouble understanding people on Skype), momentum, all nice headphones. Wish I could recommend the senn hd-ii 's more. Wasn't really a fan. Amperiors are OK. Grado sr-225's are too harsh for me.

 

The m-100s are kind of a muddy mess compared the orthodynamic perfection of the d2000s. sadface. Still p. good, but.... eh. stupid denon. stupid fostex. bleah. Oh well, I have my th600s and my little brother has my d2000s, finally getting beaten to death. I need to purchase another hardware set for those, completely replace the earcup connection assemblies. need recabled, too.

Well, I just did some good research on the Focal Spirit line.. seems like a much better choice.
