After longer listening sessions I have decided that I like the older model Denon 1001 much better. Was more portable and the sound was much less overbearing and not as much eq tweaking necessary. I also noticed a pretty unexpected level of compression in the sound stage compared to the older model and with other cans. Sent them back and trying a less expensive Ultrasone model. Just a heads up, but I don't think the 1101s have very good value at all to these ears.
