Can’t wait to read the review. The more competition in this space the better.

oh boy. I picked up a pair of used Denon 2000 recently and was super surprised. Makes sense, their amps hit a sweet spot of features/price/performance. Very excited. thanks for posting.

I'm excited. But wait for these or buy Sony WH-1000XM3? I'm a pop music addict.
Thanks.

Anyone get a chance to try the AH-GC30? I already have the Sony WH-1000XM3 and am somewhat disappointed in the comfort ( I have big ears) and the noise cancellation on flights. The three modes of noise cancellation on the Denons has me intrigued..

I'm a bit surprised by their pricing. $400 puts these at a premium over the current NC kings: Sony's 1000XM3 and Bose QC35. The last pair of Denon wireless headphones weren't very impressive to me. The newer D5200 and D7200 headphones do seem to be a step into the right direction compared to their first true step into the headphones world (D600 and D7100) which were considered to be flops.

Interesting classic pair of Denon heapdhones. The D2000, D5000, and D7000 were actually made by Foster. Denon just had their logos put on them. Foster actually kept the design and kept pushing the headphones under their own company's headphone arm (Fostex). The D2000 seem to be a real bargain considering to this day Fostex hasn't released a headphone in the price range that uses the same design.

Hard to tell since no one has heard these. The 1000XM3 are a bit bass heavy. Denon headphones usually tend to be truer to neutral and have a bit of a treble "bite". We'll see how they do this round.

According to Denon (Facebook support), AH-GC25W should launch in July - "we don't have an exact date we can give you but they are scheduled for launch next month."
