Summary: I state that I'll write this review in Italian, if you want to know my judgments, please watch at the end of this review.
Premetto che queste non sono le "migliori cuffie al mondo", tuttavia gli ingegneri Denon hanno cercato di avvicinarsi il più possibile a tale traguardo, molto vicino direi..
Summary: i was so disappointed with these head phones when they arrived. i always thought i had a slightly larger than average skull. boy was i wrong. these cans are for water-heads! how could Denon F-UP this bad?
Pros: nice packaging, good cables
Cons: these cans are for people with massive heads. if they fit you right, you are way above average head size.
Summary: Yes, initially I also experienced what many others did: Excessive bass with related compression effects at higher volumes.Still, after in between let's say 500 hrs the sound has changed dramatically. And frankly, Denon should burn them in at least 300hrs before distributing.
Pros: Comfort & Sound with Substance
Cons: Needs extremly long to burn-in to finally settle with a more balanced sound...
Summary: The AH-D7100's immediately became my go-to headphones for daily use since the day I purchased them three weeks ago. They sound much fuller compared to my Beyerdynamic T5P's and produce high sound levels with unamplified portable music devices.
Pros: Superb Rich Sound across the spectrum, great soundstage, comfortable, modern design, high quality build, Efficient
Summary: Used with Teac UD-H01 and Matrix M-Stage they sound great and are extremely comfortable. The sound is musical with deep controlled bass and detailed Mids & Treble. They also have a great sound stage for a closed headphone.

Pros: Great bass, mid and treble. Comfortable. Well made with lovely wood cups.
Cons: Maybe the full retail price, you can get them for much less!
Summary: I am a quite happy D600 owner. They are not neutral by any means but as a general-purpose headphone the sound suits my needs. Loads of super-deep bass, nice midrange tonality and an open if somewhat troublesome high-end.
Summary: Many people in the head-fi community disappointed by the new denon lines, music maniac. But i think the other way.... well, initially when i got mine, the design and presentation was jaw dropping, but the sound signature was horrible, it was bright and harsh treble with muddy bass.
Pros: airy sounds, great bass response
Cons: maybe price? retail suggested price is too high,
Summary: I will have to be succinct, however after trying the AHD5000s as well as the LCD-2 and Sennheiser HD800s (also 380s), I would rank them among these headphones (and above the 380s -- which are $200 headphones, that i highly recommend).
Pros: Bass response is tight and articulate, highs sounds good, extremely comfortable, reproduces woodwind very well. Mids well reproduced
Cons: Bulky, warm (not a flat response); but it is rich.
