Review: Denon AH-D1100 vs Sony MDR-XB500 - Page 7

post #91 of 95
Thread Starter 

How come XB500's 300Hz square wave doesn't show the same thing then which is probably more airtight than D1100 and easier driven, I've never felt a headphone's airpressure/tickling my ears as well as XB500 did.

^ in XB500's 300Hz square wave again it's very apparent that the highs are quite rolled-off.

The XB is most definitely not as closed as the D1100.  I have taken the D1100 apart, and it is essentially 100% airtight as long as the earpads are against the head entirely.

IMHO:  These are very nice sounding, punchy deep bass, but they are super fragile unfortunately.  I had a pair which I treated with "Kid Gloves" and they cracked-just like everyone warned.  Sound is very nice, but the plastic is the deal breaker.  Advise to look at M50's or something else.

will the d1100 be run sufficiently out of a player with a slightly lower power output than an iphone, such as the Galaxy s3 international?

Nice review, the tip about 4khz really helped wink.gif
