Those statements really make me want to hear the fostex. I owned a pair of la7000 and thought overall they improved the stock d7ks in every aspect. But a couple of things the la's didn't fix were the grainy mids and harshness in the lower treble. I sold them soon after getting the w3000. Now since you find the fostex better than the at's then they much be a pretty big leap over the la's.

Now to the 7100s, you can get them for around the 700.00 mark which might make them attractive. I own the d600 and find their performance to be better than the d5000, but not quiet up to the d7ks, but close though. But again, there are many who find the d600s to be better than the 7100s though. But at 700.00, they might be worth a try.

I agree with moodyrn and MacedonianHero, I had 7100 for two weeks and I prefer AH-D7000.

D7100 is pretty much a downgrade of D7000, I was kind of disappointed.

 

And another note, I prefer D7000 over UE8 (non special edition). 

One day I might buy TH900, not a crazy fan of urushi finish but for SQ ya, why not ! :)

What's the sound signature like on the 7100? Just curious to know.

 

I certainly prefer the appearance of the D7000, not really a fan of the kind of "unibody" styling that seems to have become more popular since Beats appeared.

Sound onthe 7100?  think... a refined beats by dre.

Hmm, interesting... going by the design, perhaps that's what Denon were actually aiming for (not that I would purposefully compare Denons with Beats).

Here's my unboxing and visual comparison.

If an audioboner had a sound, it would be that video, you were pretty enamored with the looks of the D7100. I've heard that pictures do not do them justice, is that true?

They do look very nice. I don't know if saying the pictures don't do it justice is quite there. You can get a good idea from the pictures.

Does anyone use these outdoors? :)

post #1105 of 1913

Since these sell for £449 in the UK, I'm seriously considering getting a pair for portable use.

Pretty much the same as the previous line.

Check out Tyll's full measurements.

What is most shocking about these headphones is the impulse at 30Hz. The response is simply the worst I have ever seen, and shows that these have serious ringing issues in the lower frequencies. Tyll said they had some of the worst measurements he had ever seen.

 

Measurements aren't the end all be all, but they allow for some solid concrete evidence to discuss. When I heard these, my ears agree with the measurements.
