Summary: The Denon AH-D600:
First thing you notice when getting the headphone is it's fantastic packaging. From the outer sleeve sleeve to the actual fold box, everything speaks quality from a reputable company. In a world of packaging having as much importance as the actual product, Denon does not disappoint. Opening the package displays the beautifully crafted headphone on a silk bed, something you'd expect Sony to do and something of a throwback to the yesteryears.
Pros: Bass extends very low and has great clarity, sounstage is wide, comfy phones, quality build, packaging and accessories are excellent.
Cons: Mids are slightly recessed, not very portable but has cable for it, it LOOKS like beats, somewhat heavy, full MSRP
Summary: When I bought these headphones about 2 months ago, I didn't expect much and I bought them without trying them out. It was an impulse buy to be honest, they were on a considerable discount and I just could not resist it.
Having no previous experience with Denon headphones (what I know about them came from reading the reviews of the old Dx000 series), and looking at the box design, I expected a bass heavy, V-shaped, "modern sounding" headphones designed for modern music,...
Pros: Clarity, resolution, detail, smoothness, deep bass that is in general tight and well controlled, very easy to power, great quality cable, value.
Cons: Slight bass resonance, slighlty "off" tonality in the mids, highs can be sibilant sometimes, too big and bulky, resulting in loose fit.
Excerpt: I purchased these after retiring my AHD2000s. They're a great replacement! They are a bit on the heavier side. Their comfort and sound is superb though. I didn't think I would take advantage of the interchangeable cables but I've actually found it very useful. The shorter cable is very convenient for music listening and subway riding. I end up using the longer cable for professional studio work.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
Summary: I recently purchased the D600's and after a few of weeks of almost non-stop listening to them, can say they are hands down the best headphones I've ever owned.... or heard.
They have the tight, low end bass response coupled with good mids and highs I've been searching for in my ideal headphone. While my AKG 701's may have a wider soundstage, and better instrument separation, they lack the bass response the new Denons deliver.
Summary: I'm in a good place. Three days ago I bought a pair of Monster Inspire headphones, which I find to be tremendous. However I let my wife try them on and I could sense a tinge of envy; I knew that I needed to have two pairs of premium cans in the house. I decided that I could solve that problem by upping the acoustic ante—by buying a pair of Denon AH-D600. I'm glad I took the plunge, because I find the AH-D600 to be equally enjoyable, compared to the inspire.
Pros: Enveloping, rich sound. Not shy on bass, but still tight. Massive, comfortable earpads. Great in-line microphone cable as well as "pure" long cable.
Cons: Much heavier and bulkier than Monster Inspire, MSRP is too high.
Excerpt: Starting off I would like to say that I have been searching for months trying to find a pair of fantastic closed headphones. I have went through many and even open-air cans. Nothing was cutting it for me. I previously owned the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pros 250ohm and they were great headphones, believe me, but were no match for the Denons that I have now. My Denon D600s only have a few hours on them so take this review with a grain of salt.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: Here's my D600 out-of-box impressions. Received only yesterday and paired with the ODAC/O2 as my laptop rig, the bass is the first thing that captures your attention. In some songs, like David Guetta's, the D600 would deliver great and deep bass, slightly more than HFi2400 even, IMO. However, the bass is always nicely controlled and tight, not intruding into the mids.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Love them, analytically superb, comfy, bass just right, go loud, wow
