--- Interesting Facts: Neither Pro or Con ---
It seems that when I bought these no one respected them, but now a lot more people do. It is well deserved.
--- Full Review ---
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.
I got the Sennheiser CX300, which extended fairly low, but the highs sounded too titanium for my tastes and J-cord. Overally GR02 was better, even with the recessed Highs.
I got the Sony MH1C which is like the GR02 but with better highs, but I hate the J cord. And not as good as the Monster Turbines.
I got the Monster Turbines which are a pretty good IEM well balanced low extended bass and love amping.
I got Etymotic ER4S because I wanted the gold standard of what music should be. and boy did I get it. the only flaw is that the staging (how wide the sound is) is small, I think because they go so deep into your ears. But their imaging (where you perceive the instruments to be) is perfect! Their famous detail is for real. and with amping they are alive, people say the Bass is lacking but they have as much bass as you can amp them with.
Then I started getting into more over ear headphones:
I have heard beats and everything in that category to me just sucks, sorry. Senn Momentum over the ears were laughable small. The B&W P7 were okay but the fitment was off, and the sound wasn't as good as the D600. Senn 595 was better, but not good enough. I have had extensive use with the Boss QC15 as well.
I got the Fostex T50RP, and nothing could prepare me of how ugly they were in real life. After laughing out loud I modded it like the head fi'ers instructions, which was fairly easy given my adventures in car audio for so long. I used Beyerdynamics Alcantara Pads and the phones came alive. They are the over the ear equivalent of the Ety ER4S for me. Very detailed as much bass as you can amp them with, smooth detailed and small staging, but the imaging is fantastic. Biggest plus and the reason I still have them is because with the Beyer pads they are insanely comfortable so I can listen while I sleep with no problems.
I got the Ultrasone 2500pro's and those were detailed, okay in Bass, kids were okay and highs were decent, overall one notch down from the modded T50RP's
The Denon D600
I got these over a year ago, so they are fully broken in. It was however a reluctant purchase, because there were some reviews that said it was their favorite headphones to listen to music and some that said the were worse than the D5000. Well I had never heard those, but Ive heard a lot of other musical Headphones and equipment, and I heard some Denon home theater stuff and it was pretty good. So when i found a good deal, I pulled the trigger.
- I'll say alive, charismatic, and adaptable. Let me first say that the Staging and Imaging of these headphones are fantastic.
- They have a good amount of bass unamped, but it is very detailed and the mids are recessed, but detailed, the highs are perfect to my ears. They actually respond pretty well straight off of an iPhone.
Bass: When using the big cord and my Fiio E17 they really come alive. I can make these things destroy any beats headphones in the bass department while sounding magnificent using rap of EDM. Several regular beats users were dumb-founded by the quality bass these things put out, and how they actually tickled your ears with the quantity. When watching movies the bass will never disappoint with how low they can go. Thunder is no problem when they are run from a good source. The authority for which these make bass is actually phenomenal.
Detail, Mids and Highs: It is very similar to the Etymotic ER4S, when listening to a multi-instrument band play, they really do have an unreal amount of detail. The Etys seem to be more in your head so sometimes they jump out more. The Mids are more pronounced with the ER4S but not any more detailed. Listening to Rock is where the recessed mids are more apparent, but because the stage is so big I would say its more to the side as where the bass seem lower on the stage, the highs seem to dance on the top of your head and the mids are just behind them not too far.
Soundstage and Imaging: These headphones have such a wide staging that I was able to play "Sileypud", New Haranni Poison Mixers and at least 4 different people looked to the right thinking there was something happening outside of the headphones, and when they immediately realized their mistake they would start laughing and they too fell in love with these. The soundstage is even wider than the open Ultrasone 2500 pros. I don't know how but they are. That fact and the fact that the imaging is so precise would be the reason some people think the mids are recessed. I think everything is perfectly balanced, if you bring the mids up in volume it throws the whole thing off.
Cons: They are big. For me studying with them on, I don't care but, you should know they are big. In fact if you have a small head they probably are too big for you.
Whenever I let people listen to these they think they are the best they have ever heard, no matter what they have on or have heard there is one consensus: The best headphones they have ever heard. I am currently listening to Binaural recording of thunder right now on them just because they sound so good.
These headphones still amaze me, and are still the best I've ever heard. They actually helped retire my search for good headphones. I don't think Ive been back to the Head Fi forum since getting these.
A couple wear issues:
- The headphone pads started to peel about a year ago, and I patched them up, but eventually I had to get new pads. I got some red brainwavz pads (In the PHOTO) just to give them a little extra flash. One day I'll get some real leather pads though. These new pads are thicker and just as comfortable (memory foam), but actually make the headphones fit a little better on my head.
- The cable without the mic is a beast and I used it over the past couple years at least 2/3's of everyday in the year. The cable with the microphone actually has a great microphone, but now after a couple years it gives me some crackling and cutting in and out when I use it with my new iPhone, but it works fine with my computer. So I don't know what the problem is.
I'm seeing the price is well above what it was when I paid for it, but If I had to I'd buy them again and again.
I give these headphones a CARL JRs FIVE^FIVE STARS!
Performance: I waited over a month to review these headphones to ensure a full break-in period of all parts. These cans are the real deal. The sound is full and covers the spectrum very well. Bass is strong, mids are present, and the highs sparkle just enough with a flat EQ on my phone using the Denon audio app. Noise reduction is great considering these are passive blocking.
Fit: Can full size headphones be described as having a cloud-like fit? The foam on the ear pieces are very soft and covered with The ear cups are very deep and my ear does not hit the edge of the cushion or the grill protecting the driver. Adjustments consist of left and right height that is standard for over-the-ear and each ear swivels and turns independently allowing the user to perfectly angle and twist the cup to fit perfect on the head. They are the best fit I've ever found for my head and I've tried all the brands under the $500 price cap.
Accessories: Comes with two cords; one thick audiophile grade 10' for pleasure listening in a stationary position and another much thinner with in-line mic and controls for use with a smartphone and physical activity. So far I only use the 3 foot skinny because I use my phone as the audio source. Once I save for a headphone amp I'll use the thick cord. Also in the box is a 1/4" adapter for stereo receiver/headphone amp. The carrying bag is nice but I would have preferred a molded case like most Sennheiser sets are given.
Cons: The only con I could find is the fact that each speaker has to be plugged in separately. The cables break apart so the right and left speaker are driven separately. It was hard to get used to at first but if you're coming from ear buds you won't notice it.
Overall: The best heaphones out there for the price and without a doubt the most comfortable I've ever put on my head. You won't be disappointed.
