Summary: I walked in to a nearby stereo store a couple weeks ago and saw these on display. I hadn’t intended to buy anything, but after I demo’ed the H-A100 on my iPhone I had no choice but to walk out $500+tax poorer. Not a moment too soon, because it was their last pair in stock. It is now the crown jewel of my fledgling high-end headphone collection.
Currently I own these, the EarSonics SM3, the ATH-M50, the Denon AH-C710, the Grado SR80, and the Sennheiser HD 555.
Summary: The first,i want to say "hi" to all of headfi-er here and i'm sorry about my bad English cuz i from Vietnam. So , i will make my 1st review as short as possible in order to avoid the vast of error grammars that always occur every time i try to write a refined long english passage :d
I have previously owned a pair of Vsonic Gr07,the Bose in-ear and listend to the Beats Solo by Dr. Dre On-Ear, the yuin pk2s and the soundmagic pl30s.
Pros: Bass quality and quantity,detail,isolation,fun,comfort
Cons: the cord is a little cheap, mid is a little far away and treble could be hotter
Summary: The Denon Ah-A100s are the last real pair of headphones I'll ever need. I purchased the headphones to revolutionize my studio capabilities, and mainly to expand my ability to mix when I travel. While I admit, they have a little something more when I run them through an amp, I wouldn't say the difference is night and day. That is, the sonic quality without an amp is something my ears revel at- unlike anything I've heard on the market today.
Pros: Clarity, Neutrality, Bass Detail, High-Fidelity for iPod
