The Denon D5000 headphones are one of the best closed headphones produced in recent years. They represent the best of Denons most successful headphone line by giving you 90% of the D7000's performance at half the price. Thousands of words have been written about the headband, thousands more about the cable, and thousands still about the earcups. The reasons to join this buy are articulated in countless reviews from community members like yourself. The Denon D5000 is a five star headphone by anyone's account.
The D5000s exemplify Denon's house sound. Aggressive detail, consuming bass, and balanced mids make this headphone a pleasure to use. Ever notice the microphone taps during "Helter Skelter" counting in the vocals? How about Dre laughing behind his mic during "American Psycho II"? That's what we mean by aggressive detail. The bass emphasis starts at low cello strings and goes through frequencies you can only feel."The Motto" by Drake feels like you're floating in a sea of honey, and "Through the Loop" by Pendulum is jarring. It's impressive to think that Denon created this bass response without suppressing any mid or high-end frequencies. The result is stunning on tracks like "Do You Realize" by The Flaming Lips. Bass hits are deep but the vocals and cymbals come through and accent the bass perfectly.
As many of you know, this line of Denon headphones has been discontinued for a couple years. In that time, the supply for these headphones has continued to dwindle, driving up prices everywhere. We've got access to ~30 units of these endangered headphones (our supplier guesses these are the last new units in Asia) so grab one while you still can!
