Still, the D600s are Ok headphones.
Are they great sounding headphones (better than the D600s) at better prices? Yes... So if someone is looking for Denon because they plainly like Denon, I can see the D600s being a good option! Other than that...
Well, I wasn't specifically looking at denon. I wanted something closed, good isolation, and really good sound quality. I've tried a few over the past year or so. Until the d600 arrived, the best thing I tried that fitted most of those parameters were the t70. But the only glaring flaw they had was just too glaring to over come, and nothing I tried seem to help it. So after trying a few others and being disappointed, I was tempted to repurchase the t70s again, and maybe have martin to make me some deeper cups for them in order to try to increase the bass response. Then as a hail marry attempt, I tried the d600. And they have answered the bell on everything I wanted. The only other midfi closed can I'm interested in at this point are the momentums.
The m100s are just a weird sounding can to me. And I didn't like them at all. But everybodys ears are different. I rarely agree with the reviews over at headphonia, but they nailed it in the m100 review. And they are a site that rarely give negative reviews. The fact I can go from my jh13, he-6, and w3000anv to the d600; and still be able to enjoy them speak volumes in my book.
