Brent said: We love the way these headphones are designed, and we wish more companies would put this kind of effort and expense into the creation of their high-end headphones.
The gist: Works better for jazz than other genres of music.
Brent said: The AH-D7200s are gorgeous, well-made headphones, with high-quality drivers and a detailed sound.
The gist: Denon is still making solid headphones after all these years.
Brent said: With every review of headphones or earphones I write, I always find somethingto complain about. Sometimes it’s minor, sometimes it’s major, but there’s always something. Not this time.
The gist: The “10” rating on sound says it all.
Brent said: The T60RPs strike one of the most natural and versatile tonal balances of the models we’ve tried in this price range, with none of the ergonomic downsides that some competitors suffer.
The gist: Brent still likes Fostex ‘phones.
Brent said: . . . if you really want that humongous sense of space and treble detail that audiophile headphones promise, and you’re willing to put some thought and money into finding an amp, you should hear these.
The gist: Get the right amp and you’re in business.
Diego said: If you’re mating your smartphone to a pair of high-end, inefficient, and/or high-impedance headphones that are difficult to drive, iFi’s compact, intuitive, elegant xCAN is a must-have.
The gist: The perfect companion to those new ‘phones you just brought home.
Brent said: For more mainstream listeners looking to step up from mass-market headphones, or audiophiles who don’t like a treble-heavy sound, the Ultimate Ones will probably sound just right.
The gist: KLH voiced these just right for most listeners.
S. Andrea said: Most listeners will probably be pretty happy with one of the two available sound signatures, and with your purchase you get both: just swap earpads. Either way, the ERA-1s’ levels of clarity and openness are above those of many of their competitors.
The gist: Like getting two headphone models in one.
