The headband and earpads on my D7200 are black, whereas on my D9200 they're very dark brown - the earpads are actually even lighter than the headband. Is this usual?
Not on mine.

What cable is that on the 9200?
It's the 2.5 balanced oem cable of the Pioneer SE-Monitor 5.
Works pretty well with the BTR5 and the D9200. :)

Yeah, as @Chris Kaoss has mentioned, the headband on the AH-D9200 has the same black shade as the one on its younger sibling, the AH-D7200. I don't particularly recall seeing it in any other color (e.g. dark brown). :thinking:

Thanks. Looks like there is some difference, but not much. This is how mine look...

Well, looking at my own AH-D9200, the color on the pads are certainly closer to the shade of those on the AH-D7200.

In any case, that subtle brown makes it look a lot classier, IMO.

Afaik, the D7200 has a split headband.
The bottom should be fake leather, the top should be sheepskin leather.
The white stitches will force the slightly different look.

Time of wear will change the look of the leather too.

Tried a new pairing and man does the organic, natural warmth of the Shanling M8 pair so well with the D9200!

Super!
Can you try to briefly compare to other Denon-DAP pairings you know?

I was not a fan of the pairing with the DX300. It wasn't bad, but the synergy is better with the M8 and the SP2000, it appeared to have slight upper mid harshness. I no longer have the Hiby R8 but I do remember I enjoyed the pairing. The SP2000 has a broader and wider stage with more precision than the M8. The M8 has a wonderful organic and natural tone. The SP2000 would be a favorite pairing if I had to choose one, but honestly, not by a long stretch. Also, I am pairing it with a Fusion Series Arctic Cable.
