It's perfectly fine I'm enjoying my D600 but still interested in MDR-1R and K267

Personally I think the D600 looks cheap, the M100 looks more Hollywood, and the Fostex TH900 is what real class and status is.

D600 is actually very well built and solidly constructed in person, the TH900 is a nice looking headphone but all I care about is sound, I would put a couple of toasters on my head if they sounded great.

If one is looking for a practical portable, the D600 and M-100 fit the bill where the TH900 is only suitable for home use.

In person, the D600 is no cheap looking can.

I  hate that pictures aren't doing it justice.

I actually bought the d600 a couple of weeks ago, after using the d2000 for about a year. At first, I was pleased by my new headphones. I found the bass very "punshy" and interesting, making songs containing moderate bass sounding good. I have done a fear amount of comparison between the d600 and the d2000, and I have found that the d600 do sound better, except from the bass. The bass is just to over the top, and I recently had to admit to myself that i had wasted my money. Listening to a blu ray copy of the Cream reunion concert of 2005 sounded much, much better on the d2000.

 

Also, I partially got my eyes up for the d600 because of them being more portable than the d2000, with detachable cables and all, but wearing the d600 on the move was not a pleasant experience. They create a lot of pressure on your head, due to the small head band. At least, so they did to my head. On the d2000, a much larger area is actually in contact with your head, reducing the pressure. For me, 30 minutes of use with the d600 is all I can take before it gets to uncomfortable.

 

I don't like my new headphones :(

Try adjusting the ear cups. I wear my D600 out everyday and have no comfort problems, they even keep my ears warm against the terribly cold weather here.

Regarding the bass of the D600 vs. the old line, for my ears they rumble less than the D5000 and don't go as deep, I don't see how you could consider the D600's bass *over the top*.

Tried the D7100 and was not impressed for the price. The arc is the same plastic as the D600 and nothing fancy, just painted in silver. Mahogony cups aside, they don't look nearly as classy as the D7000.

They sounded like a twin to the D600, not an improvement. Thicker midbass than the D600 and too much to my ears. The treble was slightly airier sounding with a smoother transition from mids to highs. But the bass is to excessive to my ears, the D600 has a flatter bass response.

The D7000 kicks it's ass.

To be clear, I very much like my D600s and the D7100s are not bad, but not worth the price increase. IMO, they should be priced similarly as far as sound goes.

Yeah, I feel the D7000 is considerably better than the D600 (and presumably the D7100) in most areas except isolation (and maybe treble actually- D600 lack any and all sibilance where the D700 could occasionally exhibit this).

post #1196 of 1502
Well of course the D7000 would be better than the D600.

I've always wanted to give the D7100 a chance and completed my Denon full-size collection, but the constant bashing of it makes me less and less reluctant to get it, especially at its MSRP. The D600 has at least earned its place as my portable choice, and I doubt that the D7100 can offer more than what the D7000 is already giving me.

Agreed, the D600s lacks sibilance while still sounding open and extended in the treble. The D7000 is more even up there but with some sibilance.

for roughly 300 dollars are they denon's d600 worth it ?? I also own the dragonyfly>o2 amp which is my primary setup for listening to music...  I'm looking to use the denon ah-d600 as a complement to my akg q701's and as a portable headphone. I'm also interested in the he-400's(full price)/HD650's ($300) any advice would be great !

Be aware HE-400 are open so have no isolation at all plus they are heavier than D600 so no good for portable use at all but really worth each penny for home use without isolation but for portable use I prefer D600 over M100 or UE6000 but honestly I can't properly judge M100 since they had not enough burn in time before I sold them because of comfort issue

olegausany pointed out some important things to note. If you want a closed headphones (one where people can't hear your music, and your headphones block out some sound) the HE-400 are not a good choice. If you want a portable pair to go with you to a quiet environment, the HE-400 kill the D600. 

 

 

 

Also, the D600 are now down to $310 on ebay / open box. Prices dropping on these.
