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.

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 headphones review

 

A stunningly beautiful pair of headphones that produce an equally beautiful sound. Although you may need to sell a vital organ to afford them, they'll reward you with amazing reproductions of your music collection. Do them a favour, though, and don't...

Stellar sound quality ; Comfortable ; Lightweight

Expensive ; Unfit for use on the move ; Long, heavy-duty cable can tangle badly ; Sound leaks at high volumes

If you'd prefer earphones rather than headphones, consider Shure's SE530 earphones -- they break the £300 barrier but sound stunning, and you'll even save a couple of hundred quid to boot
