Larger instruments separation,

wider soundstage and height,

refined layering,

tiny bit more airy trebbles.

(those would be my perfect closed cans)

 

@grizzlybeast I see your waiting for the ZMF I would love to hear some impressions :)

unfortunately you would have to pay a bunch more for the same texture.

 

I would say try some fostex but I never heard em. but they say the th600 has all of the above. the Yamaha mt220 is the best I have heard for closed in its price range. and has more treble and a wider soundstage.

 

the zmf v1 I had before was a really great headphone.

TH600 hit all the checks on your list. TH900 could be even better but it's hard to swallow price wise and not everyone is up to urishi cups bling.

Tone wise very much the same, very lifelike, the difference being the Sonys are not recessed , I dont really find the volume of the mids that different just the Denons mids are placed further in front creating a fantastic depth to the soundstage

 

The denons have about 1.5db more in the sub bass and the treble is more sparkly.

Thanks for your replies guys, the th600 might be what I'm looking for,

I've also saw a review on youtube about the Final Audio Pandora 6 that catch my eyes, maybe someone have heard it and heard the sony and could shed some light.

The beauty of the 7520 is that you can use damn near any cable you want with them.  I swapped out the coiled monstrosity for a V-MODA 3 button cable and it works perfectly.  Same with the Boom Mic Pro...so now I can use them as a gaming headset as well.  Just another tic in the "PROS" column for the 7520.  Damn this is a good headphone.

How is the bass of these headphone for rap/hiphop and dubstep? Is it powerful enough?

Absolutely.  I listen to about 90% rap/hip hop...and the M100s I've got just are a bit too much for me.  The 7520 is the perfect amount IMO...it hits low and hard, and just is damn enjoyable.

Your opinion - are the 7520's "low profile" enough like a M100 for portable/exercising/yard work headphone?  I tried the new Sennheiser DJ7's and every box was checked but had too much bass and didn't sound very good.  Still in search of the perfect portable.................

Iffy.  They are slightly wider on head than the M100s and don't clamp quite as hard, so I guess it would depend on your head size.  They are on the boarder for me, and I wouldn't exercise in them.  Yardwork, no problem.  Tho to be fair, I probably wouldn't exercise in the M100s either.  Throw on the XL pads and then you get the approximate size of the Sony's on your head.  Just a bit wider.  They certainly aren't heavy at all, so that wouldn't be the issue.

did you consider the 8.. I wish I knew how they sound.

 

I agree with dbdynasty25 but change that chord cause its coiled. I cant think of a more low profile hp that I have had. I just hope soundstage is not super important to you... other than that they are great and the first thing to go on them will probably be the pads which are replaceable!

 

I dont suspect you will want to use them in an office,public transport at loud volumes, or library. The isolation is mediocre despite its seal being the most solid of hp's I have tried. It might be because of the hole in the top of the cup. I dunno.

Have you tried the signature pro? They cash be run portable quite easily, isolate well and clamp hard enough not to fall off.

The bass on these things seem sooo impressive and not in a boomy or bloated or overdone way.
Just impressive huge deep clean realistic bass.
Almost "Denon like" but more neutral and clean.
Bass triggers my mind to say it's closer to my fostex th600 although I haven't done a comparison yet.
The mids sound real.
The treble detailed and a bit "spicy" where they sometimes touch a little hot or sibilant tone like 40% of the time but not always,
Hence me calling them "spicy".
Yet I have not burned mine in yet.
I just set them up to play in a dresser drawer full of clothes.
I will come back to them in a few days lol.

This ...

I think i can say i've got the same pair of human ears, here in europe ! Crazy world..
