Denon AH-D5000

 

The lower-end offering of the Denon AH-Dx000 line, the Denon AH-D5000s offer high performance for a pricetag that's a little easier to swallow than the higher-end AH-D7000s. With great frequency response, low distortion and high comfort, there's really...

Great frequency response ; Super comfortable ; Beautiful wood paneling

Not portable

Impressive cans, if you’re willing to shell out for them.

Denon AH-D5000

 

The Denon AH-D5000s are a great, if pricy, pickup.

Overall, the Denon AH-D5000s are quite good if you're looking for a pair of headphones that stay by the computer or at home. Not only do they have great sound performance and a very impressively low distortion measure, but they are extremely...

Denon AH-D5000 review

 

A decorative headphone with a subtle and natural sound

Comfortable ; Impressive performance ; Great build quality ; Good isolation

Does little to stand out from the competition

A fine headphone which, while it doesn't quite blow the best open models away, at least competes with them on general sound quality grounds. Comfortable, and with good isolation inward and outward

True audiophile headphone ”

 

I have tried several so called audiophile grade headphones and this is definitely at the top.  I have tried the Sennheiser HD600 and AKG 1000 and this one tops them all.  It covers the low to high frequency spectrum wonderfully.  It's comfortable on...

REVIEW: Denon AH-D5000

 

Please note: this is a re-post of my original review from 2007. This is the link to Denon's website, if you read Japanese: http://www.denon.co.jp/company/relea...2000_1000.html I bought the D5000's from Pricejapan.com for $553 shipped via DHL express....

Beautiful looks and great sound

For a "closed" can, they isolate no better than some "open" cans
