Summary: Absolutely love them. I got myself a Digital to Analog Converter to realize the full potential for these phones. Crystal clear and great reference. I listen to all kinds of music and these phones do an amazing job at reproducing. I own BeatsPro and Monster Inspiration...I never listen to those anymore. They can run straight off a phone or pod and don't need an amp....but, when plugged into my DAC that runs from my computer.........OMG.....Perfect!
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? it's like someone got these headphones, stuck them in some boiling water and then placed them on a 40LB bowling bowl. i dont care how good they sound, their to damn big! huge waste!
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: 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.
Playing The Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc by Dr. Chesky will show you how well these truly sound. I paid £449 about 18 months ago and think these have been a great buy as I have used them for hours daily since then.
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: 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. They produce deep, rich, better-defined bass compared to my Ultrasone Pro 900's..
Sound is uniformly clear and well defined across the audible spectrum.
Pros: Superb Rich Sound across the spectrum, great soundstage, comfortable, modern design, high quality build, Efficient
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. They could avoid some irritation sides their customers. I really would like to know how the d7100 would measure now!
Pros: Comfort & Sound with Substance
Cons: Needs extremly long to burn-in to finally settle with a more balanced sound...
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 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. The best thing is that they are great portable companions, with good fit, good isolation, iPod-made cable and the fact that they are very easy to drive.
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. After burn-in them for 10 hours the treble settle a bit but the bass was still sound muddy.
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). I would say they shine across most genres; though I mainly auditioned these cans with electronic and classical music, I cannot think of a real caveat in genre.
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.
