Manufacturer's Description

Stronger magnetic circuit for the driver unit: The AH-D7000’s stronger magnetic power provides robust drive that is capable of producing a dynamic, high-resolution sound.(11.4% boost in magnetic power: DENON comparison)

Piano finished real wood mahogany housing, superior acoustic effects: The same type of high-grade natural mahogany used to make guitars has been used for the AH-D7000's housing. This has been done because of the superior acoustic characteristics of such wood. To ensure the highest-quality sound, DENON engineers have analyzed a full range of elements from the shape of the housing and its thickness to the final finishing used on pianos.

Cloth-wrapped cable with high-purity (99.99999% OFC) 7N-OFC wire and equal length for left and right channels, to optimize sound quality.

Cable with tangle-free, twisting-resistant Elastomer sheath: The cable covering is made of Elastomer to guard against touch noise and other types of sound distortion caused by vibration. This tangle-free material also makes the cable easy to use. With a 6.3mm (0.25 inch) Aluminum plug matching DENON’s high-end models with a gold plated connector.

Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling.

Before I bought the Denon AH-D7000 my previous headphones were: Sennheiser HD565 (£150), HD25-1 II (£140) & Grado SR80i (£120). These are not really in the same league as the Denon so I was expecting a big improvement, boy did I get one!

The most noticeable instant aspects of the Denon's are the powerful bass and the lack of fatigue from highs when you push the volume up. The latter was rather surreal from my limited experience, there is much more power to the music with these phones anyway but with the volume up it can get crazy quick, probably dangerous too but OMG they're fun!! The detail and clarity while rattling your head to bits with bass is really something to behold! Currently listening to 'Drake-Still Fly' by Butch Clancy (Dubstep)... Wow! *huge smile*.

Also noteworthy for headphones in this range is their ability to be driven from almost any source (volume wise), although I know this can be subjective (try running the Sennheiser HD600/800 from an iPhone I double dare you). I am running the D7000's from my Samsung Galaxy S as I write this and it's pretty good! OK it's at maximum volume but it is loud! Although I do wish I could push it higher it's only because of the lovely sound and not because I should. I also tried them with a Cowon S9. There is a bit more headroom in the volume there but more noteworthy was it's better SQ (sound quality). Cowon have the best SQ of any un-amp'd portable in my opinion, Sony's are close though.

I should mention that although you can power the Denon's from almost anything you probably shouldn't. My main setup has them connected to a Fiio E7+E9 combo DAC/Amp (through a PC) and although it is ok I do get the impression something a bit more refined could push them in a better direction.

Being highly satisfied with my SONY MDR-CD 3000 stereo headphones driven by a Graham Slee Solo SRGII headphone amplifier + Graham Slee PSU1-24 power supply I was in doubt, if purchasing a DENON AH-D7000 would really lead to a significant gain in sound reproduction quality.

I finally plucked up my courage and got the DENON AH-D7000 in addition to my SONY-set. It took a load off my mind, when I listened to my favourite music with my new DENON for the very first time. Everything the SONY did very well, the DENON did better to a considerable extent. This outstanding masterpiece of electro-acoustic engineering offers an almost loudspeaker-like wide and deep soundstage, an extremely deep/firm and well-defined bass, a spine-chillingly realistic reproduction of human voices and an almost unsurpassed richness of sonic detail.

But is this sound experience really worth spending 750 GBP or more? YEEES, it definitely is - even without taking into consideration the highly aesthetical composition of precious materials (magnesium, mahagoni wood and genuine leather).

By the way: When adding a little mechanical vibration with my Velodyne DD-18 subwoofer, I have the perfect illusion of listening to an amplifier/loudspeaker-system worth hundrets of thousands of GBP - my word is bond!!!

Well these turned up today, at the moment i'm running then from my PC's onboard sound until i get the FiiO E7 and E9 combo tomorrow.

The build quality is really good, and they're really comfortable to wear, my only gripe is that they aren't genuine leather, they're synthetic or "Pleather" i think it's termed, for the price i would have expected Velour (sheepskin leather) pads and headband, but that's only a small thing really, i'm going to be getting the custom Velour JMoney pads in the future.

The sound quality is absolutely breathtaking, before hearing these i was used to listening to my music through Sennheiser RS140 Wireless headphones, they pale in comparison and sound really cheap, but i didn't know any better because i'd never heard high quality headphones before, until now!
If you close your eyes while listening to a good quality track you can place the sounds in the space around you, think the professionals term it "Soundstage"? well it's got a really good one, all other headphones i've owned it sounds like the sound is coming from within your own head, but not in these, it's like you've been picked up and are sitting there with the band right on stage with all the instruments and speakers around you.

Some people have said the denon phones suffer from recessed mids, but to my untrained ear i can't tell really, everything sounds so good to me, bass is tight and punchy, vocals sound excellent, maybe a little in the background slightly sometimes but i think that's to do with the music rather than the headphones because i've heard alot of songs too where the vocals seem more prominent, the high end is clean, sharp and sparkly but i think that will mellow as they get some hours on them.

After having owner the Sennheiser HD650 - the king of the hill reference headphones until around 2010 when HD800 was released (which is, incidentally, priced somewhere similar to the Denon AHD7000, but is an open headphone as opposed to these, which are closed) I can safely say that the Denon AHD7000 is miles ahead of the HD650 when it comes to dynamics and perspective. The difference is comparable to the difference between Sennheisers £40-area line and the HD650, so no small thing. As a critical listener I always prefer linear headphones closer to reference and you could argue that the Denons' curve is a little pronounced in the bottom due to being closed - but aside from the feeling of more bass in the closed cups the Denons are excellently linear, never sounding uncomfortable or suppressed in any area of the spectrum. In some ways the Denons almost sound like a natural wood musical instrument, warm and with excellent presence.

The Denons are immensely more dynamic and easy to drive compared to the Sennheisers and have loads more bottom. Especially the increased dynamic and low impedance is worth mentioning: the range almost make the Denons sound like floor speakers. The music really feels alive and detailed in both quiet and loud pieces. It is an improvement across the entire spectrum - I can point to no area where the Denons fall behind, none at all. Absolute high quality hardware.

Initially they were are little hard in the highs but have quickly softened up a lot after around 20 hours use. The finish is excellent and build quality overall seems good, perhaps a little susceptible to greasy fingerprints on the high gloss wood.
