Introduction

The lower-end offering of the Denon AH-Dx000 line, the Denon AH-D5000s offer high performance for a pricetag that's a little easier to swallow than the higher-end AH-D7000s. With great frequency response, low distortion and high comfort, there's really little else you could ask of a pair of headphones.
