My Audio-Technica headphones died so I was getting a replacement. Why D7000? This was one love which had gone through test of time, I must say. I have auditioned this years back. I mean like more then 6 or 7 years back. That sound signature has stuck with me ever since. So yesterday I went to my favorite local store and did some headphones audition. I initially can't remember if what I auditioned was the D5000 or D7000. So I tried the D5000. It was close to what I remembered but obviously not the one I remembered. Once I put on the D7000.. BINGO! "I've found you again!". That bass separation is just crisp and not over 'thumping'. The Denon style music coloration. Multiple layering. So the rest is history after that..haha.. Its my preessiouuss now.
My next headphone? Maybe Audio-Technica ATH-W5000? Or the ATH-W3000ANV (guess this would soon or never since stocks are running out).
