Denon AH-D1100 broke

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I've bought a pair of these two months ago and I absolutely love them, the way they sound, the bass, the weight and comfort. Unfortunately yesterday they broke, plastic fork which holds the ear cup fractured in two places, I have been very carefull with them and never had them on the go just listened to them at home. I read they are very fragile but I didn't think they would break just from using them as supposed to.

 

I searched the net again trying to find replacement but it seems impossible task without actually hearing them, as many times I read some reviews about some supposedly very good ones and when I actually had a chance to listen to them I was very dissapointed. I suppose that everyone is different and expects something else.

 

I am not looking for portable headpohones to listen on the go, it just happened that these were of this sorts, I am using them exclusively at home.

 

Anyway, I am looking for very similar headphones in every way apart of build quality ofcourse. (btw I like them so much I am considering buying second pair if I wont find anything else)

Christ, I was really hoping those Amazon reviews were just people venting and most people had a better experience.

Headphones are great but very fragile and I mean very very fragile I suspect there was some major fu... up in a choice of plastic or even maybe there was a mistake during the production and some ingredient which gives more elasticity was not added...

 

The reviews on Amazon are true, I ignored them and bought anyway but I don't regret I will get my money back, but headphones are really nice.

 

Seems like there are no similar ones, no one offered any suggestions... shame

So no one has suggestions?

I wanted to stay kind of tight-lipped since I haven't used them, but a few headphones I've been eyeballing that are built for portability are:

 

  • Beyerdynamic DT1350
  • Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
  • Sennheiser Momentum (both)
  • Phiaton MS 400
  • Sony MDR-7506
  • V-Moda M-80
  • Creative Aurvana Live!

 

Couldn't tell you which one to pick, but I favor v-shaped or warm sound signatures, so bass is something I'm looking for. Some of those don't isolate as well as I'd like (CAL! particularly).


I've been using this guide a lot. Try it.

After looking around and reading a bit of different reviews, I've decided to go with Denon AH-D600, Simply because they are the most similar ones with much better build. The will have less bass according to graphs I've seen but I am hoping that I won’t be very disappointed.

was going to say maybe try the V Moda XS, or any V Mods can as they seem pretty much indestructable

 

or wait on getting the AH D600 and get the V Mode M100, again they seem to be pretty tough

I was considering V-Moda m100 it looks very nice and I have already tried other ones in the shop some time ago can't exactly remember which one they were but I suspect LP. They were really good and I did like them quite a lot, the only problem at the moment is that m100 are a £100 more expensive on amazon at the moment, I am going away for some time maybe when I com back there will be some good deal. On the graph both look quite.

I narrowed down my choice two these two: Shure SRH750DJ vs Denon AH-D600

 

I am not DJ but there is no requirement to be to use 750's, anyway both have great reviews nice graphs and very qood quality build. Have a look at the Graph comparison between them and also Denon AH-D1100 I used to have and V-Modas I used to consider, D600 have nicer graph for audiophils but Shure's looks a bit more fun and pumps a bit more bass I am not sure which one to choose now.

Depends if you want neutral sound or bassy sound. Audiophile doesn't mean you have to pick the flattest response possible. Just buy whatever you want from a headphone.

Yeah, that's why I think headphones like the Crossfade LPs can be popular even amongst budding audiophiles. Not to say that the MDR-V6s of the world are worthless; they're awesome, too.
