Exceptional sound, beautiful Zebrawood housing and comfortable engineered leather
Denon Premium Headphone Sound
With the Denon premium headphone collection, the AH-D5200 draws on over 50 years of headphone engineering and design. The proprietary 50mm FreeEdge drivers minimize distortion in the diaphragm to provide detailed, accurate sound. It is built for extended periods of use through the ergonomic construction, soft engineered leather and over-ear memory foam earpads. Authentic Zebrawood housing offers elegant styling, greatly reducing unwanted resonances offering rich, warm tones. The included detachable 3.5mm cable and ¼ inch(6.3mm) adapter lets you use the AH-D5200 with your portable music player or home Hi-Fi system.
Sound that defies expectations. The 50mm FreeEdge drivers minimize unwanted resonances and distortion in the diaphragm to for the most accurate sound reproduction possible. Natural acoustic properties of the real Zebrawood housing aid in sound dampening to bring warmth and life to the sound.
Zebrawood has a beautiful, high-contrast, individually unique and natural wood grain pattern. The exotic, high-density material dampens unwanted resonances for detailed sound reproduction and concert hall quality.
Ergonomic design for long-wear. The AH-D5200 is shaped to offer a universal fit and light enough to wear comfortably for an extended duration. With minimal side pressure, an engineered soft leather ear pad and 3D shaped memory foam, the Denon AH-D5200 fits easily on the head and stays in place — listen for as long as you’d like.
Hi Resolution Audio
True Hi-Resolution headphones must have transducer frequency performance to at least 40 kHz. As a producer of premium headphones for over 50 years, Denon is well-positioned to provide audio solutions that meet the demands of Hi-Res Audio media formats, allowing for the full reproduction of their sonic signature.
Preserve refined sound with strong materials. A durable diecast-aluminum hanger frames the housing of the Denon AH-D5200, providing long-lasting quality and axis flexibility. Premium engineered leather withstands extensive use and retains its aesthetic appeal. The detachable cable and compact case for storing ensure the AH-D5200 headphones provide superior sound and comfort for years to come.

After a bit of research, I removed my PC soundcard and got the Audiolab M-DAC Mini (connected directly to the PC via USB). The sound quality definitely improved a lot, but the sound was quite flat and a bit muddy at the high end (something I have always had a problem with those cans).
So I did some more research and bought a pair of Denon AHD5200EM Headphones. They are excellent build quality, great materials, feel pretty comfortable (I wear glasses so comfort is sometimes a problem with over ear cans). The sounds is excellent, but they are not reference headphones, they will colour the bass and treble somewhat, but that’s exactly what I wanted to bring the most out of the Audiolab M-DAC Mini which gives an excellent but somewhat flat sound. It’s a perfect pairing.
I use them for Music, Gaming, Movies and TV and they never disappoint. I am currently listening to Allegaeon’s Apoptosis album on them (for those not familiar with this it’s fast and technical death metal that requires a particular balanced but tight sound otherwise it will sound like mush) and the pairing copes with ease.
Mission accomplished I am really happy with my purchases.
It has been a surprise that I ended up liking them so much. Thus far my favourite closed back model was the LCD-2CB and these sound very similar, are easier to power and, most importantly, do not weight over 600g like the Audeze. These are comfortable although I personally would have preferred a lighter headband rather than the leather and metal combination found on this model: it does look very good but in my view it weighs more than it should.
I am not someone who cares about packaging or accessories, so I won't go there.
The sound of this headphone is something I'd describe as "Focal Clear meets Beyerdynamic DT770", to mention models I own and know very well. It has a very high level of clarity, which I found quite surprising based on the reviews of the older sister D7200 with whom I believe shares the same drivers, matched by powerful and impactful bass that is not omnipresent and invasive, at least for my taste. If you think the bass of an HD600 is just enough, I suspect you will find the bass of the D5200 too much. Vocals are very well reproduced, at least the one I like which tend to stay not higher than altos: for example Melody Gardot or Diana Krall sound great on this, and so does Bocelli.
Overall the sound is very engaging, more than I expected by this brand, and that is the area where, along with the clarity, they make me think to my Focal Clear.
I have not listened the D7200 so, unfortunately, I cannot offer a comparison. However the frequently reported criticism of the recessed high register of the D7200 seems to have no place for the D5200: I suppose Denon heard the criticism and successfully fixed this aspect. I am not able to say if elsewhere the strenghts of the D7200 were lost of washed-up. Honestly, I am very happy with these and they do not leave me wanting in any area, hence I will just settle with these and let others report on D7200, which I am not convinced is better just because it costs more, and D9200 which is likely better but way too expensive to justify and hard to find used.
If these are out of your budget, consider the much cheaper AKG K371: less soundstage, not that good with strings and orchestral work but overall really a great buy.
