how are the mid and high sounds? are they defined? compared to hd 595 would they have a similar precision or sound muddy?

 

Im between Denon and ATh at the moment.

 

I do enjoy music with bass, but also chillout and hip hop. There fore I love the idea of the denons because apparently they have the strongest and clearest bass, but does that affect the mid high range ?

How does the mid and high range sound on the denons? I enjoy bass but it is also important to have a clear mid high sound stage.

 

I am between M50 and D1100.

 

So m50 has less bass than the denons but clearer sound? or am i wrong

 

which one is more comfortable to use for longer times? I read that the m50 are quite heavy.

 

 

:O!!!

 

Thanks for all the feedback!!

The mids are slightly recessed, its a fair trade off though, I love the Denon sound signature having owned all of the D series , the bass is rich and textured and deep.

Heya,

 

I'm wearing a set of D2000's right now. The mids & highs are excellent. The bass does not drown them out. There's no mud. It's all very clear, well separated, well balanced. The can simply can go very low on bass. It does not have the mid-hump of other bassy cans. In general, the headphone isn't even bassy at first listen unless you put on something that has a very low bass note to be played, then you suddenly realize the headphone can play such low notes with authority. It's seriously one of the best headphones in the mid-tier that you can get that are closed. It covers all genres of music very well. From EDM/Dub to Acoustic/Folk/Classical. Excellent cans. They're not harsh or overly bright, nor overly bass in the mid-bass. It's nearly flat from 1khz to 20hz. Such a smooth, wonderful listening experience. And... oh so classy.

 

Very best,

How do you find the D2000's compare to the SRH-940's? I mean, what's the most striking difference?

Heya,

 

Striking difference? Hearing 20~30hz just as much as hearing 400hz. Also, impact. All in favor of the Denon D2000. The SRH940 has one massive strength over nearly every headphone I've listened to and that's female vocals. The Denon is basically a lot more balanced when you hear it. It's an excellent all around headphone, while the SRH940 is a specific headphone, it doesn't cope with all types of sound (electronic comes to mind). Both are excellent, and I have both. But if I had to pick one headphone over another for the rest of my days, the Denon simply gives you more coverage. I keep the SRH940 strictly for female vocals at this point. Then again, I keep a lot of headphones and mainly listen to my HE-500, so go figure.

That's interesting you say that, because in the 10 minutes I listened to the SRH-940 I thought female vocals were quite striking, along with detail levels and overall just pretty high sound-quality, higher than any IEM's I have at the moment I think...

 

I'd have bought it if I didn't have the A2000X, but that one is less involving.... I might end up with the SRH-940 after all... female vocals, detail and crystalline clarity are definitely in my top 5 favorite aspects of sound.

So which of these 2:

M50

D1100

 

is closer sounding to the hd595 but with a stronger and punchier, while defined bass?

 

I loved the sound clarity of the 595 but bass was to weak. (and I need closed headphones)

 

Also if I buy the M50 or D1100 would it be worth it to buy Fiio 5?

Have you considered importing? there are a few places in america that will happily ship over here, and the price of the phones + shipping is often far less than the local prices.

I find that price hard to believe considering they retail for $65USD

I have never really imported anything from america. Was a bit worried about the time it needs to arrive and this part:

 

""Please contact your local UPS office and/or customs office for details of these charges as they apply to you in your country. ""

 

 

I think 250Nzd is still accessible I am just trying to decide between denon 1100 and m50.  While the denon is more expensive than the m50.

 

So which of these 2:

M50

D1100

 

is closer sounding to the hd595 but with a stronger and punchier, while defined bass?
