Denon D2000 / D5000/ D7000 discontinued - are there even alternatives around? - Page 3

post #31 of 37

I have a pair of AH-D7000s sitting here next to a pair of TH600's and apart from having different pads between the two, you'd have to have super ears to tell them apart quickly. They produce similar sound levels, similar tone balance, they use the same drivers, pretty much identical cords... they're basically the SAME DAMN THING. housings are different. wheeeee. tiiiiiniest bit of more warmth to the d7000.

 

I wanted them to be super-different, because I'm a HUGE d7000 fanboy, buuuut. um. >.> they're pretty much the same. I think the d7000s might be tuned differently, too.

also, thank GOD FOR MrSpeakers. I'm really appreciative that he sells the alpha pads now that j$'s are a pain to buy.

...can I just say again how sexy the package for m100 and momentums are for portable use? damn.

Someone showed me a really sexy cable mod for TH600s to terminate them to a short XLR just below the yoke for use with different adaptors. Really tempting.

though the fact that I had to use paracord and yarn around a leather belt to A.) ruggedize the headband enough for portable use (that protein leather tears super easy) and B.) dissuade people from stealing them (I swear, some of these headphones come with built-in legs, you don't want to stop to talk to anyone while you have them sitting next to you or they walk off)

Interesting other side note (interesting to me, at least). my fiancee swears by the AH-D600's for portables. I mean, she loves the d7000s I gave her, and she wouldn't replace them, but she turned up her nose at the Momentums and the M100s for sound profile reasons. The Momentums are my personal favorite for sound between those three. My other gf traded me the Momentums back for the M100s because of HER sound preferences. Funny how peoples' tastes differ.
