...and trance and movie watching

 

Armin van Buuren + Denon AH-D7000 = bliss

Today I got my Denon 7100 headphones.

First impressions: horrible.

I don't want to comment the sound because I don't have so much experience with headphones, I only own Sennheiser hd595.

 

I will share my opinion on built quality.

They don't look and feel like $1200 headphones, never ever.

The "leather" on the top feels very fragile and I don't think it will last very long, the bad part is that it can't be replaced.

I have a normal male size head but the headphones jiggle very hard at any little move and I always feel like they are about the fell from my head.

They are too width.

The right wood cup is wider than the left one. I looked very close and this is how they are. It is hard to tell because of the curves.

On the left the cup touches the plastic frame, in the right there is a small clearance as it should be.

The built quality at this price is not acceptable for me.

I paid 600 euro delivery included and feel ripped off.

 

Please take my opinion at it is and don't start text analysis.

 

Just to clarify, you know you are in the D7000 thread, not the D7100 thread right?

 

So sorry to hear you are disappointed with these. I have heard two different ones now, and tried to warn people about it in the D7100 thread, but I wasn't greeted so kindly. 

 

You mention a lot about the build quality. Anything on the sound?

I didn't want to comment on sq because I don't have experience, I only own sennheiser 595 and didn't own any other more expensive headphones.

I like nice bass but this is too much and too boomy, some said it will go away but I won't find out.

When I got 595 I was very impressed with 7100 not even a little.

sorry for wrong thread, now I go there prepared to be insulted for my opinion :-).

Sorry :/  There's a few fan boys that are adamant about defending their purchase. I just don't want more people stuck with these. Any chance of a return?

well if you stick around this thread I went HD595 --> D-7000 and to me it's no contest the D7000 are in a different league.  Never heard the D7100 but I've heard mixed reviews on them (esp. compared to the D7000).  I have since had my HD595 stolen by an evil ex-g/f few years back and upgraded those to the HD600 and all is good.  She knew damn well not to touch the Denon's lol.

havent heard the d7100, but the d600 isn't very good.

 

the d7000 and d2000 where much better.

My stock D7000 has taken over first place with my secondary rig, you guys know what I mean. I have a "vintage" nightstand setup: A Bel Canto DAC2 (fed by a Firestone Bravo USB converter), feeding an X-Can/PSU that sounded a bit sharp with HD600. I tried an HD650, it was much better and the first time I actually "got" that headphone. Than the D7000 arrived, and the HD650 has been gathering dust ever since. Maybe it's not a "reference" rig. But I enjoy my reference recordings out of it quite a bit.

post #6129 of 7156

there is no doubt 7100 are superior to 595. 

In past 2-3 years I listened only my speakers so I kinda forgot how headphones sound.

with every track I listen the sound becomes better.

I have 1 week to decide if I keep them.

Currently and deliberately putting more hours on the HD650. I'll conclude early - the Senns has its place, but...the D7000 it is!

Just modded My D7000's with HD800's receptors...Thought it would be a quick job but it turned out to be more than that.  But the result was well worth though.  The stock HD800's cable sounds great!  More bass extension, mid and high came out a little bit less recessed.  Will try some other HD800 cables to help the mid and high...

That is quite sexy. I'd want something like that to be done to mine.
