Denon Officially Announces Its New Headphones! - Page 9

post #121 of 903

"sonic character unique to"

 

I keep seeing this statement pop up. Does this mean that you would be able to blindfold yourself and pick X headphone out of a line-up?

Looks like a Denon almost hiding behind some "celebrity" headphones..

Eh... I kind of like the 7100.  I'm sure they're nicer in person

So are fat chicks. Doesn't change the facts though...

The real 7100s actually look much better than I expected. I'm not enamored by the looks, but I can safely say that I wouldn't feel guilty wearing these if they sound very good. I would never wear them outside, but I wouldn't do that with any full-size, period.

But that's a rant for another time. :)

 

I saw this post earlier in the thread, and I couldn't resist replying to it and others that are questions peoples' concern over aesthetics.

 

Believe it or not, some people who visit head-fi aren't audiophiles. Some people just like collecting headphones and audio equipment. That doesn't mean they're not into music as well, but rather that they don't prioritize fidelity to quite the extent of the audiophiliacs. I've seen plenty of threads criticizing these folks for caring about "fashion" and for being "fashionistas." That to me is quite the holier-than-thou attitude.

 

It's obvious people care about design enough for companies to try to milk that, for better or worse. Now if only they'd concern themselves with more tasteful design.... *ahem.*

The problem with that is it would be perfectly known which headphones is which just by it touching your head and ears.

Maybe this new line is so radical because Denon and Fostex had a falling out.

Headphone.... fashion?

The Jecklin Floats were a thing.  We can't complain about aesthetics that much.

I for one am not ashamed to be wearing even floats if the sound is worthy.
Let's focus on the new speculative driver manufacturer and my personal favoite- the weird-looking iems.

Floats look so much better than these do.

 

Functional Ugliness > Failed Styling

 

That said, if they end up being the holy grail of closed headphones that sound great while having decent isolation I'll have to put their looks aside and get a pair.

So... I'm missing the post where there's a statement regarding sound quality, where it is ?

In the future somewhere, when Denon actually allows someone to listen to these.

The term has loosened up a bit (understatement) in recent years in a quest for more consumers. Although pendulums were designed to swing freely, once the industry's machine (manufacturing, retail & marketing) has swayed you emotionally about purchases, that's when they got you! evil_smiley.gif
