As I was about to buy the AH-D1001K, I find the rumor of the Creative labs Arivna suppose to be the same for a fraction of the AH-D1001K. I started looking at other headphones.

Lucky I have 32 OHM, I tried the ATH-ES7, I'd say they got the Denon beat in so many ways. It isn't even funny.

*sigh

I didn't think that at all. To each his own obviously, but I think its pretty far from a consensus that the ES7 is better than the D1001. More than anything else, they're pretty different.

wait, what?

ok, so, your post is really hard to read.
So, basically you went to a store and tried both and found the ES7 was better?

So, whats the problem, buy the ES7. They aren't very expensive.

As per my sound signature, I do prefer the ES7 over D1001 also (have had both in the past), but it definitely won't be that way for everybody. D1001 is hell a lot more comfortable also.

What I meant was I like the ES7 over the D1001 musically. I admit the seemed a tad colored, but I really like them. There are some some points that the D1001's was better.

For me the denon's performance is fantastic, more bass and sounds as great as the audio technica. The disadvantage is the price....

weird, I thought the ES7 had deeper and punchier bass.
