sum it up quick... sounds like a $175 headphone. Denon should be ashamed of themselves. i bought in to the "they need significant burn in time", and didnt return them in a timely manner. now im stuck with them. im majorly disappointed with these headphones. they're going on ebay this week. hopefully, i can find a sucker like me and hope like hell i can almost get half of what i paid for them.
anyways... i had to vent. to any and all that might be remotely interested in these headphones... look at fostex. never heard them but i hear they made denon's old headphones back in the day.
