Crikey! wish I had read this thread a few days ago.... just got my hands on a pair of Denon 7100s and so far they sound absolutely &%^&%* awful. Ghastly.   I bought them to replace my very much loved all-time favourite headphones - Denon D-5000 - on which unfortunately the pin holding one of the earcups and headband together has snapped (I've jury rigged it back together).   I saw the 7100s at a good price and thought they must be the perfect replacement... but oh...
Whoops wrong thread.
Hello - anyone looking to sell either of these in UK or Europe? Let me know... 
Could be interested but where is P(R)L ?    
^ yes but I'm getting exactly the same result using a Schiit Lyr pushing out 6W in 32 ohms.  Which is hardly underpowered.     There is a huge disparity between what I am reading about the HE-6 and what I am hearing with my own ears.... there must be something wrong with the ones I have.  
Folks - rather than trying to wade through the hundreds of pages of threads on this headphone I thought I'd try the direct approach...   I am trying this 'phone at present and am finding the above results - thick heavy muddy sound, treble is poor and lacking detail. I am running them off a Lovely Cube BCL clone and a Schiit Lyr.   Both of these should have enough power, especially the Schiit.   All the posts I've seen hitherto have said that the HE-6 will sound...

I too wish they people who say "try before you buy" would say where.    I suspect they didn't either, because in 20+ yrs of hanging round hifi shops in the the UK, I've yet to find one that has a decent selection of headphones to audition.
I will NEVER buy anything from this retailer again.     BTW I have never ever felt moved to complain like this about any retailer before.   I bought a pair of of Hifiman HE-6 headphones from them online.  My order was not acknowledged nor any receipt received until I chased for it by email.  The phones arrived a short time later after being delayed by a fault found in their testing. Good that the first pair were tested.   At that point I enquired about speaker...
