Denon is famed for producing some of the best closed headphones ever made; the D2000 is a primary example of their craftsmanship. This headphone was designed to compete well above its price range and the reviews confirm its achievement. Common praises focus on the D2000's magnesium frame, luscious sound signature, leather bound comfort, and microfiber diaphrams which produce its signature detail and thump.
Imagine you're floating in an ocean of milk chocolate. That's the D2000 mid bass. Low acoustic notes resonate and flow. Bass extension is some of the best available. Pendulum tracks are engaging at normal listening volumes and downright punishing at higher volumes. The bass is so fast and controlled that it's hard to believe these headphones have a low enough impedance to work with portable players.
The DX000 line was great, sadly, Denon decided to discontinue them in late 2011. Since then, there's been an arms race between audio enthusiasts and collectors to get their hands on the last remaining factory sealed packages. Two years later, we're raiding the warehouse of a private collector in asia to bring you what are probably the last, brand new, Japanese import Denon D2000s in the world. Join while you can.
