Hear Music as the Artist Intended

Music Maniac Artisan Over-Ear Headphones are acoustically transparent, meaning they deliver sound precisely as the artist intended you to hear it. The 50-millimeter Free Edge nano fiber driver provides the performance of a box loudspeaker from an over-ear headphone. Professionally tuned to a Flat EQ, the headphones provide a studio-quality listening experience.

Detachable Cable Connections with Two Cables Included

The headphones come with two cables: one 10-foot, high-purity, oxygen-free-copper cable with a cloth mesh jacket that virtually eliminates distortion and maintains ideal sound, and one 3-foot cable for use on the go. The shorter cable has an integrated remote and microphone. Detachable cable connections on each ear allow you to make your own custom cable if you choose.

Ergonomic Design for Long Listening Periods

Denon's patent-pending pentagonally-shaped memory-foam ear pads and adjustable headband provide lasting comfort and a customized fit. The ball-and-socket ear cup design provides for 360-degree articulation, automatically conforming to the shape of around your ear and adjusting to the depth of the depression where your neck and jaw meet underneath your earlobe.

Package Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a matter of disclosure, this part time audiophile "got lucky", receiving these headphones for review via the Amazon Vine program. The most expensive audio listening hardware for personal use that this reviewer has had for years are the Shure SE420 earphones. This makes the Denon AH-D600 the most expensive set of headphones this reviewer has personally spent some time with.

For personal comparison and for you to know where I have been, I currently own Sennheiser HD595, Bose QC Series 2's, Razer Carcharias (gaming headset) and most recently Audio Technica AT-M50. For even more portability, Shure E-3c, Shure SE-215 and Shure SE-420 earphones are used. I have a Fiio E11 headphone amp that I use for headphones on my computer and portable devices for volume and sound quality. I listen to a wide variety of music including ambient-electronic and/or beat oriented electronic, harder industrial rock, garage and noise bands, a variety of alt-folk-country-indie and corporate rock.

Appearance. The AH-D600 is packaged luxuriously in a sturdy and attractive box with the headphones presented on a molded satin bed. The headphones themselves are a mix of metal and plastic with predominating plastic on outer surfaces. While appearing durable, and with no obvious weak points, the predominance of plastic at this price point is unexpected.

Overall appearance is nice but appears bulkier than may be necessary. The earphones are surrounded by the outer plastic piece that extends out a bit further on the tail end than might be necessary. This is an outer appearance and design factor rather than a functionality issue. Streamlining future versions might include trimming this bottom piece of plastic closer to the actual earphone, reducing size and the appearance of size.

If you're thinking about buying these headphones then it's probably because you either want a good sounding headphone, or you want a different sound than the headphones you currently have produce. I also own a pair of HD 650's and while I love the Sennheiser sound, I wanted something a little different because I like the closed headphone 'studio' sound. These D600's produce that sound with wonderful soundstage and an overall great listening experience.

Comfort: They are very comfortable headphones - period. Not too lose or too tight.

Design: I like it. It's new and it's modern. If you don't buy audiophile grade headphones because they look dumb (when some think they do) then I'm sorry, but you're ignorant.

Sound: This is obviously most important. The sound is all there, and this is comparing them to my HD 650's. I'm saying this with 20 hours of burn-in time - which they do need btw, just like any other type of speaker.. They produce very good highs (not as great as the 650's, but that's expected), great mids, and some amazing bass. The bass is strong but very controlled and tight.. it takes a bit away from the treble but nothing huge.

Overall, if you're seriously thinking about getting these, then do it. Don't make your judgements until they've played at least 10 hours as well. These speakers are big - and they need to break in. Stick with them and you'll be happy.

I usually don't write reviews because I am lazy...lol Unless something that really impressed/botherd me.

Value: 4.5/5
Coming from 100-250 portable headphones, the D600 is a overall worth the upgrade. I use CIEM(Custom In-Ear Monitors) for daily outdoor listening and prefer portable headphones when traveling to somewhere.
I got this cheaper on the earphonesolution when they had promotion for about $374. for its MSRP $499, I think they aren't really a bargain for most people but audiophiles(they have fat wallets)
I had a chance to do an A/B testing between Denon's flagship D7100 and D600, and the differences are minor, despite the D7100 is 3x expensive than the D600.

Overall Build Quality: 4.5/5
D600 is not build like a tank, but it does looks very sturdy and durable.
Switchable cable design is definitely a big plus IMO.
The size of headphones is considered big, but the isolation is exceptional.
How does it look? Decent,but YMMV.

Comfort: 4.8/5
I separated this factor from the overall build quality for those who really cares about the comfort level. Regardless how terrific a pair of headphones could sounds, the comfort is the priority for me. D600 is one of the most comfortable in the portable headphones category, although the earpads do make your ears a bit warm. No matter how big your head is, I guarantee that it would fit. D600 might be heavy, but there is much heavier hi-end headphones in the market such as LCD-2.

Sound Quality/Signature: 4.8/5
D600 has a very musical tune with a warm sound which is not really "flat" sounding headphones. It's colored, but not extremely colored. The mids aren't recessed like other reviewers mentioned, laid-back highs but not rolled off, and superior bass response.

Here is a long review, but it'll be worth it and for me to give five stars, the D600's and you deserve it. But if you don't want the background comparison skip down. Over the years I grew quite an enjoyment out of music. 10 Years ago I decided to learn how to play the guitar from some pro guitarist friends that had made it. I acquired many high end guitars and amps. As my desire to perfect my music grew, naturally so did my desire to listen to music. I upgraded my car audio to the best I could afford. I upgraded my home theater and of course I upgraded my headphones. While shopping for home theater equipment I heard a McIntosh system worth $150,000, a B&W 7 and 8 series systems, Magnepan systems, and many lesser regarded audio equipment. I don't consider myself an audiophile, just a music lover.

After some research I decided to go with some cheap Sennheiser HD-201 because I was cheap and didn't know headphones could make that much of a difference. I loved them. That was my first adventure into something better than $10 headphones.
I then got HD-280's for mixing and they worked very well especially with amping.
I started becoming more interested in IEM's I got the Etymotic MC3, which I love because of how good they block out sound but they broke after 2 years of constant use.
I got the Bang & Olufsen A8's (not IEMs so sue me) which I still use and love for working out even with a complete lack of bass.
I got the VSonic GR02 Bass Edition for the hell of it. Great Headphones, recessed Highs, well extending bass especially under amping.
I got the MEElectronics M6 which in every aspect felt like a cheaper version of the VSonic, everything was just slightly worse, but they were cheaper.
