It's the internet, you're going to get many different types of people here. I'm a designer, so I *better* care about the looks of things. beyersmile.png

 

Though, I do have to agree, I'm surprised as many people care enough as we've seen on this thread. It's fairly evident that most people really don't care that much about looks/design. Especially considering the amount of athletic shoes/gym shorts/sweatpants out there.

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

Depends on how they sound, but my guess would be yes. :)

Whether they're proper hifi is another question entirely, and a much harder one to answer.

It's very interesting to see how tastes differ. Some people hate the hell out of the looks, and some brave souls have voiced their strong approval of the design.

 

I just thought it was interesting. :)

Aren't audiophile and Hifi the same thing? confused_face_2.gif

Not in England. I expect these to sell near £800 =~ $1200

It depends on the definition.

A lot of people would consider most mid-fi headphones (that are pretty popular here) as "audiophile" headphones as well. Whereas hifi is the top tier of "audiophile" gear.

When I saw these headphones, at first, I thought that the stock cable has a 3.5 mm plug (which wouldnt surprise me at all).

This. $1100+ for a semi-closed dynamic? The headphone market is starting to resemble the speaker market more and more. It's inevitable, I suppose, once manufacturers drive price expectations up to where people think that anything below $1k is not high-end.

Of course you could argue that in the Orpheus/R10 days you had even more insanely-priced flagships but the sheer market saturation with $1k+ headphones of dubious quality together with price increases on entry-level high-end stuff (as well as it being discontinued entirely) paints a pretty different picture.

I'm hoping that the entry and mid-level models in this series will be good, and not much more expensive than D2k/D5k.

another thing that I noticed hasn't been mentioned (at least in this thread) is that the new design will likely eliminate the screw issue I read about.

seems like a more integrated way to keep the cup portions from breaking away from the band.

I think they honestly look a lot classier than the prototype. Definitely livable in my opinion.

Well said man.

 

There's been a constant swath of headfiers buying their d7k's new in the americas for around the $550 mark. Nearly three times less than the usa price of the hd800 ($1500). But In the uk the world is very different; never did the d7k's even come under half the £1000 hd800 mark. Heck, the d5k just about did!

 

I won't be surprised if denon's new top model hits the £1k mark here
