What to get instead of Denon D7000

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Guys,

 

For some time I have been thinking about upgrading from my Ultrasone Pro 900...and I had been considering the Denon D7000.

 

As Denon in their wisdom have now decided to replace the D7000 with those new Beats looking clones, the D7000 has become rarer than rocking horse poo.

 

So, while I try to hunt down a pair, I want to consider my alternative options too.

 

I don't have a desktop amp at the moment (just portable), but am looking at some DAC\Amp combo options.

 

Can anyone recommend similar Closed headphones? What do you think I should add to my list for consideration?

 

Money isn't a primary factor at the moment.

 

Thanks

If money isn't that much of a concern, I don't think you'll find a better fit than:

The definitive D7000 substitute/step up: Ultrasone Signature Pro - Fantastic headphone!

 

And the step up from that is the Fostex TH900 - also and incredible headphone.

Thanks guys - thats a lot of food for thought

 

Initial thoughts are that, visually,  I am leaning towards the Fostex.....maybe the Kenwood Victor

 

Does anyone know how aurally they stack up against the Ultrasone Editions?

I owned the Edition 8, and have read extensively about the 9 and 10. The Sig Pro is the cousin of the E9.

Would you be interested in a brief comparison of the Edition 8 and TH900?

Hi mate,

 

I would definitely be interested in a comparison as the Editions, specifically the 8 series, really intrigue me.

I'll save the 9 & 10 for when I decide to add to my collection with Open headphones :-)
