Next week I get a Denon AH-D7000 for one or two weeks for test - I am very snoopy to compare it with AKG K701 and K702 Smile

I hope it works well with my green Solo Wink

The Denon AH-D7000 are in the house now :D

A short report ....  driven by green Solo (potentiometer 8..9 h)

Very good, noble building and design, cable spiteful, loose contact to the head, closed design but poor damping for noises outside, noble case, ...

Hearing with PF, Final Cut, CD / Mussorgsky, Picture of a Exhibition, SACD / Eva Cassidy, Live At Blues Alley, CD / Marianne Faithful, Blazing Away, CD

Final Cut
Treble - very good, more corpus
Bass - deep, more pressure, sometimes a very little bit booming

Picture of a Exhibition
very impressing, express the deep and the darkness

Live At Blues Alley + Blazing Away
Bass - deep, more pressure, sometimes a very little bit booming

I cannot say if the sometimes very little bit booming bass a lapse of the headphone or from the sound board operator.

With the AKG K701/702 this are not so in evidence.

More coming during X-Mas holiday :P

Hi FritzS,

We have a well burnt-in beta Novo here to send to your European group if you can send again your delivery details (inc telephone number).
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

I have the D7000 and I believe its much better in SQ than K701. Not in the same class. D7000 have an incredible sound stage and a rich texture that is better than most dynamic headphones.

Yesterday I got the Novo test sample an I spend 4 ... 5 hours to test them.

"players list" - Novo, green Solo, Denon AH-D7000, AKG K702, K271 MKII, Sennheiser HD 600, Marantz SA7001 KI

AKG K271 MKII vs. K271 - they are cardinally similar (both are closed) as the K702. In some music passages the K272 run close to the D7000 - but the D7000 is a class upper.

The D7000 makes more pressure in bass as the open K702 or HD600

K702 in bass slimmer and brighter over all frequencies

The HD600 are between the D7000 and K702.

I use mostly the Novo HA, compare to Solo I cannot find replicable differences.
Sometimes I had the feeling Solo express the highs better, but if I cannot reproduce (cannot catch) it. Both running parallel, so I could switch between in short time.

First short review
Music:
Eneda Martha, Lope Kai
Marianne Fathful, Blazing Away
Anton Vivaldi, Four Seasons, Elena Denisova, Gustaf Mahler Esamble, Vienna
Kari Bremnes, Erindring

Roger Waters, Amused to Death, Three Whishes
D7000 more bass, deeper in bass-area, brass more "velvet", more "silky"
AKG's brass are more brazen.

Telarc SACD Sampler 3, Jazz
with Novo + Denon AH-D7000 "a poem for music"

Kodo, Prism Rhythm, SACD, Sony JP, track 4, 5, 6
with Novo + Denon AH-D7000 perfect

Would be continued .....
