Summary: See pros and cons. Basically if you don't eq these i can't recommend them, i use the acoustic setting on my zen vision m and i bring the eq on foobar down with a non exponential curve from 55-311Hz.
Pros: Price point, accessories, good starter set of headphones
Summary: Not much to say, a reason why I returned them right before 45day. The bass in theese are the best part, it is punchy and it is alot more than a neutral headphone. But at the same time the bass do bleed into the mids making it hard to hear on bassy songs.
Also they kinda feel cheap like they can brake easy, I would have kept them if i mainly listened to to electronic music.
Summary: I've own these headphones for about year and a half now. I've been listening with them about 80 hours in the car/bus, 15 hours in airplanes and 150 hours at home on my computer.
This is just a short review of my experiences with the D1100s.
Pros: +++Exellent soundstage! ++great highs +Heavy and fully bass ++Pretty detailed +++Extremely comfortable and light! ++Great isolation +flexible build
Cons: -Recessed midrange (Can be Equalized) -Bass can be muddy --Ugly, cracking arms --Two sided, non-changeable, weak cables
Summary: This is my first ever review, so please excuse my amateurish fumbling attempts at describing sound. I will do my best, but don't expect the work of a seasoned professional!
The Denon's are my 4th set of "good" headphones, but the only set I have used consistently since I started getting into head fi are my beloved Audio Technica ATH 700 Pro MK2's.
Pros: A more detailed sound than I'm used to, but still with lots of tuneful bass
Cons: Flimsy feeling build quality, especially the silver colored plastic bits
Summary: Pretty much all has been said already. Excellent value, very good bass, mids and highs are a little laid back. Really comfortable. Perfect first pair of headphones for anyone looking to get a better musical experience from an iPod.
Pros: Bass quality, quantity. Comfort, sound for the price
Summary: These are my first non-ipod earbud or cheapass $20 skullcandy-esque on-ears. I got them used on the forums here for $80 which seemed like a steal as they are $200 new on amazon. Needless to say they blow anything i have listened to out of the water. I listen to bass heavy electronic music and they do a great job with it. It is not muddy at all and the high frequency synths are reproduced faithfully and layer nicely with the tight powerful bass.
Pros: comfortable, seemingly accurate reproduction, work good un-amped, solid but not overwhelming bass
Cons: headband to cup swivel connector seems a bit flimsy
Summary: First off, let me say I own two pair of Sennheiser headphones already I am in love with. These Denon's were needed for the 50mm drivers and frequency range they offer for gaming, but WITHOUT sacrificing bass like the others above did. They need NO amp and are punchy, clear, and dynamic! I'm using them with a dolby digital 5.1 decoder and yes, they work beautifully! Perfect for what I needed when it comes to my gaming. My search has ended.
Pros: Lightweight, heavy natural bass, very wide sound stage, perfect for gaming and surround sound music listening
Cons: None if you like deep, but natural bass and accurate highs
Summary: The price is quite nice to purchase this pair from the Amazon UK. The sound is not bad, which gives you enough feeling of the space. But without a good amp, I guess the space is a little 'void'. For example, the symphony, you would feel that you are sitting a little too far away from the orchestra. The plastic feeling is not that good, especially it creaks sometimes. But it does not really matter if you focus on the music.
Summary: For the first week I LOVED these headphones but, sad to say, with time I found more and more holes in their performance. For the money these are very good value but not a 'must try' unless you are looking for a U shaped response curve. Detail in the highs is pretty good, nice airy feel instruments/vocals sound spread out. Bass is warm, gets low and is very good fun for the pseudo bassheads. The mids are where these really fall apart.
