The AH-D7000 is the newest flagship reference headphone from Denon, a company usually known for their home theater electronics. Denon made a mark in the headphone market a couple of years ago when they introduced the AH-D1001, AH-D2000, AH-D5000 providing a well-rounded sound quality in the crowded market of premium headphone makers like Sennheiser, AKG, Audio Technica.

What I noted in my D2000/D1001 review is they are good headphones which have no glaring faults. They tend to have a very musically pleasing sound quality that doesn't dull the performance quality of the music, with their authoritative bass, clear and sparkly highs, but they don't overdo it either. They seem to do justice to most music types. So this "ultra reference" model carries on that tradition. The MSRP of this headphone is $999, and that puts it in the "ultra-expensive" category, but fortunately, you can actually find it discounted fairly steeply sometimes which brings the price down to earth a bit (but still orbiting). The main difference in this model over the lesser but similar wood-construction D5000 is an improved driver (higher efficiency) and a better finished wood earcup (now polished finish and nickel lettering that can't wear off). Looking at the spec sheets, there isn't much to differentiate it from the D5000 model to justify the $300 premium. Oh yes, but you do get a nicer box: A cardboard affair with leather-like panels, with a cloth material covering the main storage cradle. You don't even get an adapter to plug the ¼" plug into the 1/8" jack of portable devices, which I guess sends the message, don't even bother using these with your iPod.

Ok, enough with the small talk.

Is this thing worth $1000? In many ways, no.

I would say the original price of $999 is probably a bit of a stretch on my wallet for these cans, but I would probably say that about ANY headphones. I bought these from a local dealer for right around $700 and I could not be happier with them.

The sound quality is phenomenal and the BASS is the best I have ever heard from a set of headphones. If you like bass, there is no doubt you will absolutely love these cans. All that being said, the bass is not overpowering at all, in fact the entire spectrum of sound is warm and completely audible. If you like hip hop, trance/electronica, rock, or any kind of music with punch, these are the headphones for you. I cannot really speak on jazz and classical, but I have read many reviews suggesting that these cans are a bit to bassy for those particular genres.

Now for the "but". These are NOT the headphones you would want to plug directly into an Ipod. If that was your plan, don't waste your money. For that, you can buy a set of Denon AHD1001 for a fifth of the price. Denon D7000s don't come with a 1/8 inch converter plug, so that should tell you something right off the bat. These are reference headphones with a VERY revealing sound, so anyone planning on listening to only 128kbps music in your Itunes library, and plugging directly into the headphone jack on your dell, probably don't want to spend the money. So what does all that mean? Basically if you feed these headphones garbage, that is what you will get. These cans should also be driven properly by a decent headphone amp, otherwise you wont even come close to hearing their full potential.

Its the bass. that's where it starts. No other phones have bass exyension like this. Not boomy or sloppy, but it goes all the way down. No other phones can do this.

Without sacrificing magical transparency and extension, smoothly through the midrange to the extreme highs, the foundation, the low end, of these cans, more than any other, creates a magical soundstage. If its on the recording, you'll hear it, unattenuated, flat, all the way to 20Hz. I've never experienced this in cans before. These Denon 7000s can create the impressive, sometimes shocking impact that I've only heard before from huge speaker systems like Pipedreams or big Wilsons. The way Pipedreams can pressurize a room, so these Denons can pressurize your soundfield, but they manage to sound totally natural doing so. I've never heard better cans. Compared to Audio-Technica W5000, they seem not to have the excess air on top like the A-Ts, but the A-Ts are so bass shy. Sometimes I miss the over-airiness of the A-T, but the Denons are flatter. Highest recommendation. Its like getting a $100,000 speaker system!

I upgraded to these cans from the Grado GS1000 in hopes of having deeper and punchier bass. The Denons delivered on their promise to have the cleanest bass out of any avaialble pair of closed headphones. Although I did sacrifice the soundstage and superior clarity of the Grados, it was more than made up for in other areas. I am driving these with a Headroom amp/DAC.

- Well balanced accross the whole range. The mids aren't lacking due to bass, the treble is very sharp but not overdone.
- The bass. It's strong and not overwhelming: an extremely hard feat to accomplish in headphones. They don't sound like a ghetto blaster w/ 2 15's & stock speakers inside of a car, they also don't sound like in-ear monitors. The bass is collected in away that it hits very hard when it needs to, but also subtle when not needed.
- Excellent CLOSED cans. Lots of high-end headphones are open, and for a good reason. Having closed cans means you keep the music to yourself while eliminating outside noise. I'd rate the isolation to be about 10 - 15 dB, similar to a very weak pair of earplugs, but it's something.
- Very comfortable. The leather padding is soft to the touch and you can wear the cans for hours wihout discomfort.

- The wires could use better shielding. I do like the outside material though and the wire construction is sturdy.
- After listening to some of the best open-air headohones, the sound stage is noticeably small. Also, the clarity, resolution, whatever you call it, isn't 100%, but very close to it.
- They need a strong amp. I have a Headroom Total Bithead, and I can see how they could be pushed further with a stronger amp (the DAC on that amp is awesome though).
