Denon D7100?! - Page 5  

post #61 of 1913

I'm also unsure of the cup design; not even from an aesthetics standpoint, but from a sound standpoint.

 

Also, your flagship is all plastic and the model below that (and the one below that) are made of mahogany and aluminium?

this has to has to has to has to be an april fools joke

Off course it's a joke, there's the irrepressible temptation to throw them in a trash bin.

Look at this cheap looking "glossy plastic".

Why would denon would  come from one of the best looking headphone , to something that terrible ? This would be a shameful marketing decision.

This d7100 is just a downgrade in design.
According to you.

If it sounds better, what is your answer then?

People said the HD800 was cheap looking plastic too, now they happen to be a reference headphone for many. Also best looking is in your opinion. I'm not fond of the stitching on the pads, but the rest is kinda funky cool. I just worry about the acoustics with the oddly shaped chambers and pads. This isn't the first time we've seen strangely shaped chambers though, remember the Sony R10? It's only visual saving grace was that the cups were of wood and not plastic or the Head-fi crowd would have raked it over the coals regardless of it's world class sound. I personally think it's somewhat ugly, but can see where someone would find it appealing.

Buy the TH900s, the spiritual successors to the D7000s. After hearing them at the meet this last weekend, I've already decided to get them. Now I'm just waiting for the prices to settle down a little.

Based on the pictures, they are far less attractive and appear to be a cheaper build quality than not only the D5000 & D7000, but also the D2000.  The image that comes to my mind is "Johnny Space Commander".  That can't help sales.

 

The ear pads & head band cover on the closed version invoke images (for me) of the Levi Edition Gremlin from AMC in the early '70's.

 

They better sound damn good!

That HAS to be an April Fools joke. They are an abomination if I've ever seen one.

Than at best it's a poor materials decision. And I still find it strange that it is all plastic while half of their current D line is made of things like mahogany and aluminum, *very* expensive materials comparatively. The Sennheiser example isn't quite the same, since pretty much everything Senn makes is plastic.

Also, I'm not refuting it entirely, I'm just unsure of the design, which you said you were not a few sentences later.

My god man! :p

post #72 of 1913

Well since most if not all of the line will be plastic it could be cheaper:)

post #73 of 1913

And there still prototypes so we dont know if this is how the final product's will look.

I'm waiting for them to drop to $1500 - 1800. Will give me time to save up.

You really need to hear them, they're D7000s without flaws (except the same s***** headband that needs more padding).

FAKES FAKES FAKES

 

Have a look at the next photo, especially at the bottom of the pad, no decent shadows in any direction. Also the plastic lighting is too smooth, where the band fades into the hairline, is too clean cut. No distortion what so ever on the persons skin or on the pad itself.

Even if these are being planned, this picture atleast is fake, the rest also have similar issues, but whoever did this still knows what they are doing.
