Denon Officially Announces Its New Headphones! - Page 45

post #661 of 903

Are the AH-D600's single cable entry or dual cable entry? There appears to be two cable slots, but in post #2, only one cable is present in the picture.

Dual cable- check out the video at Crutchfield.com

It makes no sense whatsoever.

 

Ever heard of complementing existing model lines instead of replacing them with products that are clearly not natural developments?


The direction seems to be greater portability and I applaud Denon for adapting and producing a high end audiophile headphone with a modern design that works as well as a portable as it does in the home.  It now looks like there may be a viable high-end alternative to the Ultrasone Signature Pro.

How can people say these headphones don't look like an improvement to the old lineup?

 

Replaceable cables?

 

Protective plastic over the wooden cups. The cups seem to be structured better so that the cup doesn't fall off.

We can't say whether they're better or worse since we haven't heard them. I think that most people who are complaining are confused (I certainly am) because these new offerings don't appear to be actual replacements for the models that they are replacing.

 

Whether or not you like coffee over cola is personal choice. I just wish that Denon would have given us the choice. Some of us love the old D-series (look and sound) and would have preferred that they continued alongside these new "Beats" inspired cans. Would anyone complain if these were called the C7001 and didn't replace the D7000?

 

I admire AKG's commitment to continuity and stuck with the K1000 for nearly 2 decades despite its poor sales. While the 7000 might have been a loser in revenue, surely the D2000 sold decently enough to warrant hanging around?

You've sort of made my point. Since the new models are different enough, they could easily coexist with the old series. Many of us don't care for portability and just want the best at-home listening experience possible. Why not offer us both flavors?

If Fostex won't make the D's for Denon anymore--or will do so only under unfavorable (to Denon) terms, the discussion is moot.

I think they have stopped the D5000/D7000 because they were not selling well due to not being significantly different from each other... I mean the D5000 has the same driver as the d2000 and the D7000 is only slightly different from the D5000 but this is not reflected in the pricing at all.   

 

D2000 £200   

D5000 £350    

D7000 £700   

 

I think this is why they are not selling. ..... I think the prices should be more like

 

D2000  £150

D5000  £250

D7000  £350

This is why Denon will now offer only two distinct audiophile models with a significant discrepancy in price point and, I'm assuming, a similar distinction in sound quality, although I expect the AH-D600 to be an improvement over the D5000 based on the initial impression from Steve Guttenberg on CNet.

How much is the D610 likely to cost?

 

Also can you link me to the impressions about the sound? I am interested in the D610 model because the 7100 is out of my price range.

IMO, Denon is attempting to answer the question, "Why can't one headphone be portable AND provide the best at-home listening experience possible?"  There are so many negative comments about the looks of the headphone.  IMO, I like the new sleek and modern look and don't think they look anything like Beats.  Some of the best sounding headphones in the world are, IMO, some of the ugliest (Audeze).  Let's listen to the new Denons (I see they are already available for preorder) and give them a chance.

Here are the only impressions of the sound regarding the new Denons that I have found.
