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: Unbeatable value. Best headphones i've ever listened through. Super comfy as well. Get them! I have listened through them 4+hours everyday out walking, I have on several occasions been caught out in the rain in them, and even the most torrential downpour doesn't seem to affect these. I had them for almost two years when someone stood on my rucksack in college. One of the earpieces became detatched. But they were still working fine so I just fixed them up with brown tape.
Summary: If your looking for a very responsive set of headphones you will not go wrong in choosing this model: I am very particular about audio products that I buy and consider Denon as a manufacturer who knows the business that they are in and this is exemplified with this product. I love all kinds of music and make my own music and without a doubt these headphones performs, trust me I mean performs. I love quality and this is it.
Summary: Let me get things straight. Yes, the build quality is poor and could have been better but for the new price of 50 pounds, they sound amazing after you burn them for a while. These headphones sound better that any headphones with prices of around 150 pounds. They excel in instrumental reproduction, music like: classical, indie rock, film soundtrack, giving crystal clear quality and impressive sound stage.
One pair of amazing headphones, with one slight issue.

Summary: I'll be frank here, sound wise, these babies punch way above their weight, clear, deep bass and warm mids, with punchy, yet soft highs. I plug them straight into whatever sound chip my motherboard has, so no fancy amps, dacs or soundcards, and I am more than happy with the sound. They are fairly comfortable as well, with one slight problem, the headband could have been a bit thicker, after a while you will start feeling the thin, yet padded line on the top of your head.
Summary: These headphones give the best listening quality after 50 hours of listening. Recommended for home listening rather than on the go. Blocks out external sounds effectively. Stage impression is very well reproduced with enough depth. Great low's, natural mids and highs give a fantastic listening experience. They fit very comfortable on the head without heating up your ears even after extended hours of listening.
