The AH-D5000 ear cups are soft and the clamping force is very low. As a result they are comfortable for long periods (they don’t aggravate pressure points), although they are slightly heavy so that the headband occasionally needs to be shifted.
Denon’s AH-D5000 is a very musical headphone, but one that is somewhat colored—although in beguiling ways. Careful selection of ancillary source and amplification components will be necessary for best results.
