Denon AH-D7000

The Good Exceptional sound quality; prowess with a huge array of musical styles; almost unrivalled clarity across the board; great design and level of comfort.

The Bad Not so much better than the previous model that they warrant such a price increase.

The Bottom Line The older D5000s put the icing on the cake, but the D7000s add the artistic decoration to turn that cake into a masterpiece. At £800 they're very pricey, but they're also the most exciting headphones of the year, excelling with rock, folk, acoustic, electronic and metal alike

Denon AH-D7000 headphones

Denon's AH-D5000 headphones were previously our favourite pair of cans since the Sennheiser HD 650s. Now they've got an official successor in the form of the Denon AH-D7000s.

These �800 monsters were, for us, the most exciting headphones of the year, and after over a month of testing and daily listening, we're ready to sing their praises. They're on sale now.

Design
The D7000s give an even higher level of luxury than their D5000 brothers -- if that's possible -- with glossy varnished mahogany enclosures, golden lettering than doesn't wear off over time, and larger, softer leather earcups. They're also a little more snug than the last version, clinging to the head better.
