Introduction and Question about 2 Denons

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I'm a new member technically but a long time lurker. I have decided I definitely want a set of Denon headphones. I want them because they are more comfortable than lcd-2's. More bass than a lot of other headphones in their class, and they just look incredible in my opinion. I have two in the for sale section here that I would like help choosing between.

One is a set of D7000's. They have pads from mark l and look to be in very good condition.

The other set are only D2000's but they have the markl leather pads, rosewood cups, and a toxic 24awg cable. These are also in pristine condition. 

These two are about the same price, really a negligible difference.

I am leaning toward the D7000's because of the better stock driver and I can always upgrade the cable and cups later if I want.

Also I like bass. I really enjoy electronic music, though I listen to pretty much anything except country.

I do not have an amp yet but will be getting one next month(after I recover from paying for the headphones lol).

Thanks for the help, and your opinions.

One more thing these will be my first set of real headphones, and very excited to get a pair.

I just looked it up and I just still love the look of the d7000's too much to buy the th600 over them. Even with a little sharper bass and a little better sound, I would still rather the d7000's. The th900's though look amazing(i'm a sucker for wood cups). Thanks for the input though.

I love wooden cups as well. Look into the jvc dx1000 as well. I fell in love with that particular headphone at a meet. They sounded gorgeus, but they are just pretty darn hard to come by. I'll also want to get the esw9 or esw10 at some point.. And rs1...

I've got both the D7000 and custom D2000, both Lawton modded. The D7000 is slightly better but very close.

Re the TH600, when I auditioned it side by side with my D7000 it was like a clone of each other.

Let us know what you end up with. Good choice! I'm a huge Denon fan.

Thanks, I'm so excited to get a pair of one of them. I'm leaning toward the d7000 just because I can always upgrade the cups and cable later on if I want, and it will be even better than the modded d2000, but I can't as easily upgrade the driver in the d2000.

Actually found a set of LCD-2's with a silver Dragon cable that I am buying instead. I have been so back and for on them and the Denons since both look so good. I just decided since I won't be traveling until the summer get these for now, and maybe switch to a set of Denons later on, or just get a pair of IEM's for the summer. These are most likely the better headphones for just at home use anyway, especially amped. I have never tried either so the comfort problem might not even be a problem for me. Really a set of LCD-XC would be ideal but out of my price range. Thanks for all of your input for a new member, I am very excited.
