    Looks sort of cheap for a $1500 headphone. And I hope those hinges are more sturdy than they look.

    The hinges aren’t the problem. But the head band is on the D7200. I really hope they have fixed it.

    Those are like 1k more than E-MU teak, and well look about the same as E-MU Teak. Lets hope it is the new Holy Grail of Woodies. :D

    It's gonna be uncomfortable for most of us, just like the D7200. And the pads seem to be the same as well as the headband, seems like Denon took the lazy (cash grab) route and just tweaked the driver and changed the wood without actually addressing the main issue here for 80% of users: comfort. (yes I still own the D7200). Also these will never offer a wide and holographic soundstage because the pads and cups are thin / shallow and for a flagship like that, I think that's a big mistake. If these were 900$ and their cheapest D5200 around 400$, it would be more competitive and reasonable.

    Shame, for 1500$ I think we're better off with a ZMF headphone. Just my opinion of course, but I've been through pretty much every bio-cellulose headphone on the market.

    Interested to see how these will compare to TH900s.

    I would be interested, but as others have noted they seem to have done nothing about comfort. Looks exactly the same as the D7200.

    Bamboo = cheap, and it looks obviously assembled from multiple parts.
    For 1500$, it doesn't exactly look better than D7200. SQ is one thing, but for this price you also buy flawless built quality.

    $1500 is mid-fi these days. This is what you get

    Then we should not buy any more of this crap. Boycott it, and wait for them to make something decent for $800. A message that WE'VE HAD ENOUGH! :angry::poop:

    So far it looks like your correct.
    The main comfort issue is that headband.
    Denon is not listening.

    The only interest is how it measures with the tweaked/improved driver.

    Need to see the insides to make any more assumptions..

    Like others have said everything about screams D7200 with different cups. I really didn't have an issue with the headband of the D7200's. My issue was with the upper frequency roll off. They just lacked that last bit of clarity to make them keepers for me. I wonder if the D9200's addresses this.
