Product Description

The Denon AH-D2000 is a great headphone with many superior qualities The headphone housing used in the AH-D2000 to produce high quality sound is made of materials yielding exceptional acoustic characteristics ensuring faithful reproduction of the original sound. Compound metal is used to increase density, making the sound more stable and clear.

Micro-fibre material has been used to form the diaphragm so that it faithfully reproduces the sonic details and delicate reverberations that occur in concert halls. The size of micro-fibre is approx. 1/100 of natural cellulose used in ordinary diaphragms, and its density increases transmission rates.
Optimum acoustic characteristics are achieved by adjusting the sound pressure balance in front of and behind the diaphragm with the acoustic optimizer design. To provide a sonically clean performance, a balance of low to mid range frequencies is critical and dynamic clear bass is a must; the acoustic optimizer delivers both.

The cable used with the AH-D2000 is made of high purity 99.9% 7N OFC cable and employs an aluminium connector cover and a cloth mesh jacket. High-quality cables of equal length for the L/R channels are used to maintain optimum sound quality and performance.
Additionally the Denon AH-D2000 headphones use a light-weight magnesium frame. This frame lets listeners enjoy maximum comfort during extended listening sessions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for the price 5 Jan 2011
I first encountered these headphones in a superstore Germany. After listening in the shop I was blown away, the quality of the sound is fantastic!

When I got back home I tried out loads of different headphones but ended up ordering the Denons. In my opinion they are better than other open headphones (such as the Sennheiser HD650 which is what I almost went for).

The sound quality is incredible; you'll be able to hear parts in music that you never even heard before.

2 notes of caution, first the cord is very long and thick which makes it difficult to carry round (I had to wrap them with tape). Secondly if you use MP3s you will now be able to tell the difference between lower and higher quality encoding and will want to reimport most of your music collection!!

That aside, I give these a big thumbs up and recommend them heartily!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning! 17 Dec 2011
Without doubt, THE most comfortable headphones I have ever worn, and the sound quality is remarkable. The soundstage is admittedly not just as defined as it would be from open backed headphones, but none the less is quite incredible with everything well placed; sound is punchy and powerful without being overbearing, with excellent clarity (maybe slightly regressed in the upper mid-range, but not enough to be detrimental).

These handle everything from rock to pop to classical, and bring everything to life - - try them, you won't be disappointed.

yes they are bulky, but the sound will blow you away. low is great, high as well, cable is long enough to watch your favourite blue ray films on 42'tv from a distance, bought from amazon for 153gbp - the best value/sound quality headphones on the market

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Can! 6 Jun 2010
By A JAX
I decided to try these after reading many good things about them & am delighted to write that they exceeded my expectations.
They appear to be well made & sound fabulous in every way, being very colourful (though accurate) & dynamic. I don't personally find the bass level excessive as mine are connected to a very good headphone amp, they just bring out detail in the bass region that is rare in the world of headphones.
My only quibble really is that the cloth covered (retro) cable is too stiff making it difficult to lay it where you want, as it has a mind of its own.
A real fun & enjoyable headphone & highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, delicate as eggshell 16 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have reported, these headphones sound unbelievably good - the clarity of sound is amazing, and the bass very rounded. The build quality appears excellent - leather phone covers and over the headband, beautiful chromed metal and brushed aluminium throughout - they feel solid, and pleasant to hold. The huge catch, as one other chap has reported, is that they break - VERY VERY easily. The pin connecting the phones to the headband is very thin, and what you cannot see is that it is even thinner inside the fitting - about 0.5mm diameter. You only find this out when it shears off... If you are lucky, this is early enough to reasonably claim a refund. Mine were bought in February 2011, and have just failed - October 2011 - having been used occasionally and treated very carefully indeed. How did I break them? - I put them (not threw them) onto my duvet on the bed. That's it. Tough treatment, right? If you use these every day (which I don't) these will likely break a lot sooner. Amazon are sending a new set free of charge - let's hope they last longer than the first - thanks Amazon !

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic sound.. 27 Nov 2009
bought these 2 months ago, and found the sound to be astounding. I am hearing my discs on a different level. These headphones are slightly heavy on prolonged listening but the sound quality makes up for that. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Stunning 28 Mar 2010
By G. Kemp
I was in two minds over this or the AH-D5000, but given that they are more than twice the price, these represent an absolute bargain, much more detail than anything else I've ever heard. Warning: Will make you want to A) Go and buy and dedicated headphone amp and B) re-listen to your entire CD collection again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic pair of headphones 27 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
These are the famous Denon D2000's. They are the best headphones available in this price range and worth every penny.

HOWEVER, THESE ARE NOT FOR OUTDOOR USE. The headphones are very bulky and the cable is 10ft long with a thick mesh cover to protect it.

These are for some good home listening, and the quality of your listening experience will increase tenfold using these. They're well built and look and sound amazing.
