Denon AH-D600 Music Maniac


Denon's latest headphones are very expensive, but they're still an excellent choice for working at your desk, relaxing on the couch, or spending quality time with your tablet.

Great sound from the 50-millimeter nanofiber driver. Oversized, fully articulated earcups with pentagonal, stitched-leather pads offer supreme comfort and noise isolation. Cables detach, and you get two in the box: one 3-footer with the 3-button mic,...

They aren’t as bright as other audiophile headphones, which makes them seem less lively. Not enough clamping force to walking around — these ‘phones are for a-sittin’. You have to flip a lot of burgers to save up $500. Only a one-year warranty

Denon AH-D600


The Denon AH-D600 headphones are designed for bass. Find out more about these bass headphones in our review.

The inline remote, choice of two cords and pounding bass sensation are great features

The overall sound quality is subpar, the low and mid-tones are muddy and indistinctive

While other bass headphones provide clearer and deeper bass, the AH-D600s still produce more bass than standard headphones.

Pricey for me and cord was a problem


I got item on sale but for my use it was a little too pricey for what I got. To use with my sound systems the cord I needed was just too much of a hassle. That may not be a problem for you. I'm a real value nut so maybe you wouldn't think it was too...

good sound

Value, needed really long cord

Audiophiles Only


These are the very best headphones I have experienced. It probably helps that I use them with a Denon AVR-3311C1 AV Surround Receiver. A truly awesome audio experience.I bought the bullet and spent the money for these high-end phones as the music I...

Superb Sound Quality

Larger than most

Doesn't deserve Denon name, but sounds good


In my opinion, Denon made a huge mistake going away from the Fostex innards it used in the D2000/5000/7000 and focusing more on outward appearance than sound quality. The simple truth is that you can do a LOT better for $300.That said, these are...

Very comfortable, decent sound

Overpriced for what it is, Denon trying too hard to fit in, no longer focusing on sound quality

Denon Delivers A Perfect Sound Experience Again!


Just a heads up to anyone reading my review, I listen to all types of music so this is where my review is coming from. My first pair of Denon headphones were the AH-C50 earbuds. I purchased these about 6 years ago and one of the ear buds gave out on me...

Perfect balance of bass and treble, comfortable fit, multiple length cords, convenient carrying case

That I don't have a second set of them yet

Consumer review by:

Compete with professional headphones over $1000


It's amazing, powerful, and compete with professional headphone over $1000, But I wished Denon was more careful about its size. It's big and bulky and It doesn't have enough grip on small heads!It's my best purchase in 2012 (spent 6k on electronics)

Amazing sound quality, crisp and detail sound, powerful bass

It is big and has not enough grip on small heads

Denon AH-D600 Music Maniac headphones


Denon's audiophile headphones aren't for commuters, but they're great for discerning listeners

Strong bass ; Comfortable fit ; Sturdy build

Bass can be overpowering ; General cord complaints

Denon's AH-D600 headphones are aimed at discerning music listeners. They're not made for the trip to or from work -- they're definitely most at home when you're sitting still and paying attention to whatever you're listening to.

Denon AH-D600 headphones review


At £500, the Denon AH-D600 headphones are a massive financial commitment. The good news, however, is that we've had a sniff around online and you can already find them for about £300. While that's still not cheap, that's only a tiny sliver of cash more...

Stunning bass, lovely overall sound, comfortable, perfect for watching TV and movies

Headband a little loose on normal-sized head, devilishly expensive

Like angels singing in your ears, the Denon AH-600 are a beautiful listening experience. They are too expensive, and the bass can be outrageous, but we've comprehensively fallen in love with them
