Pfft they may as well be, they hardly leak any sound compared to a semi-closed can like the DT880 and there is little soundstage to speak of.

I wonder the effect a fully closed cup will bring on the similar free edge cellulose diaphragm driver still made by Foster Electric Company Ltd (I'm deducing it is, because it's their patented way of making drivers).

 

Isolation will be better for sure... even more bass??

 

TH900 is still the king of the hill for me! and I voted AH-D7000, I find it classier, although I really dig the urban and abstract morphology of the D7100...

 

Not sure what to think about its thickness though:

1000

 

Not shoulder-wide, phew

 

 

Hey! look at what I've just found on Fujiya Avic's Facebook:

700

 

DENON GLOBE CRUISER AH-NCW500 SR (for sale there: http://www.fujiya-avic.jp/products/detail13305.html)

 

It addresses the thickness issue quite well actually, lol

 

Cups pivot 90 degree to wear around your neck

700

 

I never saw that precise supra-aural model coming (on Head-Fi at least)

The color combination of silver and brown




... Denon... what the hell?

I hold them no grudge for the colors they picked... black and white, silver and brown, contrasting doublets, makes sense to me.

The D7000 is silver and brown.

The D7000's main color is brown and black with some silver. This full silver and brown, no black is just atrocious.

+1 from me as well. I just don't know what the design team is thinking. Yeah these look better than the D7100 but both of them are still ugly. I'm still trying to figure out why Denon would put beautiful mahogany on a headphone and then cover it up with cheap plastic. It just doesn't make sense...facewall indeed.

Silver and brown look good together.  I don't see the problem.

 

I guess you can't please everyone.  Maybe they'll release a black edition. :)

This picture you're quoting is about the choice of colors... do you like silver and brown, with no black?

 

Is it really plastic? or a magnesium or aluminum alloy?

I don't think because people would confuse it with the AH-D600

700

 

I hope these cups will pivot both horizontally and vertically, like a Fostex T50RP.

"Both of the new Music Maniac over-ear headphones use glass fiber reinforced composite material for much of its chassis. This material was chosen for its very light weight and for being very inert. Rapping on the chassis of either of these headphones reveals a very solid feeling frame.  Not surprisingly, the AH-D7100 Artisan's materials and finish seemed to be of a higher grade; and the Artisan's ear cups are carved from solid mahogany, and serves as a component of what will be a sonic character unique to the Artisan."

They look a little better in Jude's pictures, though this weirdness remains.
Did you mean asymmetrical? The old cans were classy but a bit anachronistic in 2011. The problem with the new ones is that they look cheap. The lines are just fine, but plastic-faux-metal combined with plastic-faux-wood just looks bad. I still voted for the 7100s because of the lines. They needed to choose better materials, though. IMHO.

In Jude's post it said they were made out of mahogany.
