I know this thread is from a few years ago, But I see no one really talking about these HP's at all? I have no idea why?
I just picked up a set in a quick trade. Call me Impressed. They kinda sounded above average at first coming right out of the touch. But I added a little EQ, just a touch of treble and hooked them up to my E11 with a little Bass boost. Since these are small on ears they needed just a little kick, but man they really can handle some juice.
Being a big Denon fan These little things impress me. The Bass can go REALLY deep and it's nice and tight, The mids for me are actually a little forward, Usually Denon has the known V-shape ( My fave sig) But these are a little more forward then the norm. The treble is nice and crisp but I like it just a tad hotter. I don't have many on ears but I'll say these sound much better then the Senn PX100 and for sure the AKG as mentioned in this thread.
The build is great as well. The headband is the same size as the Denon D1000/1/ Cal but actually has a better build. The comfort is slightly less as they do have a little harder clamp, I can't really judge the pads as mine were used and they have hardened up ala M50. But even so they still feel good.
These things do have the sound of the Denon D1000 just smaller but the Denon house sound for sure. I'm looking to it's big Brother now the DH700, Another less talked about HP.
A few guys said it's a baby D7000. That's saying A lot. I think the main flaw with these is the Retail pricing!!! I've seen them listed from $60 to $89.99.
I feel that is a bit overpriced, But these are a few years old and back then we had less comp. For the same money you can pick up a much nicer set. Even the Cal at $60 out class these,
But these are smaller, the build is stronger and more portable. At around $35-40 I think it's a great bargin. I think $99 for it's bigger brother would be the best deal.
If you love the Denon sound and can trade or find them super low priced, try em out they are pretty dang good.
