Rated 5 star based on fit to application.

I recently purchased a Zune 80gb because it supported lossless WMA playback. However, I didn't have a good set of portable headphones to use with it. I had been using a pair of Sennheiser PX-100's and PX-200's, but they were ill suited for jogging and outdoors activities. Both headphones are ok, but too much external noise leaks through the PX-100's open air design and the sound quality of the sealed PX-200's is a definite drop off from the PX-100's. Either way, neither worked well for jogging as both tended to slide around my head.

So I started a search for pair of enclosed headphones that could be driven by the Zune. After reading many reviews, I decided on the Denon's and I'm glad I did. They sound fantastic, on par with my Sennheiser HD-570's (actually, the Denon's bass is better) but not quite as good as my uber expensive Sennheiser HD-650's. I've never heard a pair of enclosed headphones that sounded like the Denon's. The Denon's don't suffer from the "in a can" sound, rather, they are almost as open and transparent as the HD-570's. Good recordings really have an air to them and vocals on some of my reference recordings just seam to float in space. The high end is almost perfect. I use The Giant Hogweed Orchestra's "Halogen" to evaluate the high end as this psychedelic jazz composition features some of the best captured drum and cymbal work in my music collection. You can hear every nuance of the cymbals and the brush work on the drums is absolutely esquisite. Once again, not as good as my HD-650 which cost a nearly rediculous 6-7x as much, but every bit as good as the HD-570's with even better bass extension.

And, the Denon's work very well for portable players.

I was searching for comfortable audiophile grade headphones to replace my Bang & Olufsen Form 2's. My Form 2 headphones sound wonderful, but i was very displeased at their comfort level. My ears would go sore after only twenty minutes of use with the Form 2's. On my search for comfortable, yet audiophile headphones, I found the Denon AHD1001's.

The AHD1001's are incredibly lightweight and comfortable. It is possible to hold these headphones up with one finger and I can wear them for hours before feeling the need for a rest. The headphones also sit around the outside of my ears, so although these are concidered on-ear headphones, they should be known as over-ear. Unless you have extremely large ears, each ear pad will sit around your entire ear and I'm a pretty big guy. This supreme comfort was for me a big selling point as I have stated before.

As for the AHD1001's sound, I am very impressed. They have a very pleasant natural and accurate sound reproduction. They may be even more natural sounding than my Form 2's. These headphones also provide a much more immersive sound than my Form 2's could. These headphones effortlessly pump out high quality bass, much more so than my Form 2's. It's almost like Denon built subwoofers into each cone of these headphones. These phones probably deliver so much bass because their closed design does not allow the bass to escape. Even though the AHD1001's are a closed design, like the Form 2's, the AHD1001's perform with a great sense of space and do not sound confined. The AHD1001's will also give a good picture of where each each sound is originating from.

I have had these headphones for about 3/4 of a year now. After reading other reviews on various forums, some people swore by them and others stated that the bass is weak. I did not use them that often at first and the bass did seem lacking, but the mids and highs were terrific. I started using them a lot more often and now the bass is definitely not lacking, though not overbearing or muffled either. Just like other quality speakers, the ones in these just took awhile to break in. The clarity is so great that if you have lower quality mp3s etc you will be able to hear the distortion. After listening to my normal music with these, I can hear instruments that before were non existent. I have not used my Shure headphones since, except while on a long flight. These headphones do not have noise canceling and airplanes are to loud to use these. I listen to a mix of metal, JPop, Trance, Classic Rock, orchestral.

Pro:
The AHD 1001S are "audiophile" headphones. What is amazing it cost only $129.00. Denon trickle down their AHD 5000 headphone ($400) technology to their AHD 1001S. The music presentation is scary good; three dimensional sound, no harsh digital sound and dynamic bass extension. You will be engaged with the music and the recording (An emotional event). I've own Grado and Sennheiser $100 headphones and they don't sound close to the Denon AHD1001S. They are light weight and comfortable to wear. You don't need an amp for your MP3 player. You will not be disappointed.

Con: Made In China. Cheap plastic (Toy) construction. Easy to break. No noise isolation; you hear everything outside; people talking, etc. I wished these headphones were made in Denon of Japan (Higher Quality).
