Just got it and put it through the paces with all types of music on my iPod. From trance, house, dance, pop, classical, R&B...it played everything to my high expectations. Bass, Mids, Highs are all balanced perfectly. Just read someone complaining about the bass being non-existent. Try playing around with the fitting some more. I also came across this on the first try....I pushed the earbuds in a little more to seal off the ear canal and now it's a Bass house in my ears. It compares very similar to the tight deep bass from my Sony MDR-V700s (over the ear phones).
In the end, this is the best set of earbuds I've ever had. The Denon's soundstage also seems wider than my MDR-V700s too. BIG WOW THERE!
**UPDATE** : I recently bought a pair of Sony MDR-EX51LP Fontopia In-The-Ear Headphones and compared it to my Denon set. Denon is louder at the same volume setting on the iPod. Denon has a deeper and more rounded-pronounced bass and much more clarity with amazing mid/highs' detail as described by other reviewers here. I have confirmed that the Sony silicone earbud cushions do fit perfectly on the Denon hardware....actually I prefer the Sony silicone cushion for a more 'sealed' fit and are using them now. In addition to those music genres mentioned above, I compared both Sony and Denon using jazz, new-age, rock, and disco music. Again, the Denon performed perfectly on a wide array of music genres and you should get these while they are still on sale.
These earphones fit differently than so many other earphones. They sit just inside the opening of my ears. The body of the earphones definitely stay outside. They do not feel snug like the Shures. In trying to "achieve a sealed fit" in my ears, I would try to insert them too deeply. They were not comfortable, and I did not achieve the necessary seal in order to get a solid bass response.
What I found really works is to obtain some foam earpieces manufactured by Comply. They are available through Amazon and on their own website. When I inserted thse "memory foam" tips onto the end of these earphones, I was able to achieve a very comfortable, "light touch" fit. I found that there is no need to force them to fit snuggly like a Shure earphone. The sound is full and rich. The bass is excellent. I cannot help but think that the aluminum casing and shape give these earphones some of their resonant bass.
Now, I really love these earphones. I have the Denon AH-D5000's which are an over the ear headphone. They are superb. I could not figure out how they could have missed the mark on their earphones. I have found that if you are willing to invest in some foam tips for those earphones that seemingly do not perform as you would like, you can really improve the sound.
The first few times I wore the Denons, i could not tell from feel whether the earpiece was properly seated. Perhaps this was for being unaccustomed, perhaps the rubber tips change shape with use; after a few weeks of wear, however, it became very easy to tell when the earpiece was properly seated.
As for sound; the only other reasonably headset to which i can compare are the Bose Triport; the Denons are, as other reviewers can attest better than I can, far superior.
I now see also that replacement silicon tips are available from 3d party Generic and others; "replacement silicone earbuds for sony". I had heard that replacement tips were not available from Sony, don't know whether they are from Denon. Presumably these would fit the Denon, tho i have not confirmed this.
For me, this maximized the bass, without sacrificing any treble or mid-range, and really made the sound come alive on these little guys. And they are still way more comfortable than standard earbuds.
In fact, I am wearing them right now as I type, and the sound is so well presented, I can't even hear the keyboard keys clicking as I type.
Other than that - a nice long cord that gives you some room to move around, and the price cut on the black model is great.
Buy and enjoy.
