This headphone is a sealed design, so it doesn't leak or let in as much sound as open design headphones (which are most common type among the higher quality designs). It is SUPREMELY comfortable due to the well padded earcups and soft headband with a very light clamping pressure. Big-eggheads rejoice! It may feel a bit loose on those with smaller heads though, so you may want to try before you buy.
Holy moly. This is the DO-IT-ALL headphone. Bass is deep and punchy, there is no mistaking that the bass is there, but not in a overbearing way. I compared the tonal balance of the bass to my home theater system which is flat (+/-3dB) down to a low bass limit of 23Hz. And these headphones present the bass in an accurate manner down to the lowest frequencies. It beats out the AKG K701 in that respect which always seemed to lack some impact in the bass. The highs are sparkly, clean and present. The crash of the cymbals are present, the sizzle of the high hats are there. As far as tonal balance, these would definitely rank up any of the other headphones short of the multi-thousand dollar sets.Read more ›
Well, this is it. My long and beloved headphone journey has finally come to an end for the time being. I've been through many, and headphone after headphone failed to impress me in some aspect or another. I was beginning to lose hope in finding that "perfect" headphone for me. But then one day, I finally decided to purchase a MKIII. Now, I had to start all over again with trying out headphones -- or so I thought. I remembered two headphones that really stuck out from the rest of the bunch, and I wanted to get them both once more, not only to try them out with my new tube amp, but also compare them both side by side. So I bought the HD650, and a few weeks later, the D2000. Now, it's up to my ears to tell me which one will be my "perfect" headphone, and the one I will keep indefinitely.
My testing will be consisting of two systems. My first system will be my P1260 CD player hooked into my Little Dot MKIII with Slyvania 6AK5 tubes. The tubes and amp itself have well over 150 hours of burn in time. My second system will be nothing but directly plugging them into my iAudio 7 with a flat EQ and no sound enhancements. My HD650 has around 80 hours of burn in, although my D2000 probably only has around 30 hours, guesstimating low. Both headphones have not been modded in any way, shape, or form, excluding me stretching the HD650's headband for added comfort.
I find the only way I can get a truly accurate reading on a headphone is to compare it directly to another, side by side. Thus, I have both the HD650 and the D2000 with me right this second, and I will be doing extensive AB testing on a variety of music, at various volumes.Read more ›
1. Comfort -- Big earpieces which fit all the way around your ears. The pads rest on your head, not your ears. Mine don't even touch my ears. Nice soft, thick letherette. Also the headband is really nice. Barely any pressure at all. One feature that might not work for some users is the shape of the earpads. They are ergonomically shaped very specifically to fit on your head a certain way. Putting these headphones on flipped around from the marked R and L feels pretty strange. They are very comfy and work for me, but you might want to try them on before buying. The way the pads are angled you really can't wear them with the headband in a lot of different positions. Once you get them settled though, wow are they nice.
2. A closed design. Although my AKG's do sound a little more "airy" and more like listening to good speakers in a room, they have quite a bit of bleed, both outside noise bleeding in and inside noise bleeding out. The ADH2000's do have more bleed than some other closed cans I've used, but outside noise reduction is decent.
3. Excellent sound. According to most of the reviews I'd read, these Denon's are among the best of the best closed-design, fullsize headphones. I was not disappointed. These sound ridiculously good. I really can not put them down.Read more ›
