Denon AH-D1100


With a simple design, but superb audio quality, fans of strong-but-not-overwhelming bass response will love Denon's comfortable AH-D1100 headphones.

Top-notch audio performance. Comfortable over long listening sessions. Fold flat for easy packing. Extension cable and jack adapter included.

Enhanced bass response may turn off audiophiles seeking flat response. Comes with pouch rather than case. Hardwired cable.

Denon AH-D1100 review


At £20 over our £100 limit, we hoped the Denon AH-D1100 headphones would impress us. Compared with the robust build of the Shure model and the light but tough styling of Philip's entry, the Denon's looks didn't bowl us over. We think it's the...

Shopping around, you may be able to find these likable Denon cans for less than £120. If you spot them on offer, go for it. But at the RRP, it’s tough to recommend them above some of the other models we looked at, which are cheaper but similarly...

Good headphone for casual listening.


Not every headphone is reference-class, and I don't expect reference-class performance from a product like the AH-D1100 which is priced and designed for casual listening. There are a different set of concerns, and I'll try to judge the D1100...

Light, comfortable, clear and full sound.

Relatively delicate build, over-emphasized bass response.

Two problems: head size often wrong, too bass-heavy


Got this headphone from a friend after he got himself a more "comfortable" one (only 3 months after this Denon). Trying it for 10 minutes was enough to understand the problem: the headband is way too curved, pushing the earpads extremely hard on the...

Very comfortable once head size is manually fixed + decent soundscape once bass is calmed down with the right EQ

Head size is seriously off on (some?) models + way too bass-heavy without EQ

Hi, This is my first review so i hope u like it. Soundstage: it is very good, clean instrument separation with some space to spare, just nice to turn on Dolby Headphone mode. I have heard a better soundstage in an open-ear design but this one doesn't...

Great sound quality at low price

bass is somewhat boosted

Lovely tone, delightful full bass but just lack the mids to make them a 'must try'


For the first week I LOVED these headphones but, sad to say, with time I found more and more holes in their performance. For the money these are very good value but not a 'must try' unless you are looking for a U shaped response curve. Detail in the...

Entertaining sound, comfort and musical

Subdued mids, bass can get a bit 'boomy'

Fun headphone


Not much to say, a reason why I returned them right before 45day. The bass in theese are the best part, it is punchy and it is alot more than a neutral headphone. But at the same time the bass do bleed into the mids making it hard to hear on bassy...

Much bass and comfort

bass is abit muddy also they lack midrange

Great First Over-Ear Cans


These are my first non-ipod earbud or cheapass $20 skullcandy-esque on-ears. I got them used on the forums here for $80 which seemed like a steal as they are $200 new on amazon. Needless to say they blow anything i have listened to out of the water. I...

comfortable, seemingly accurate reproduction, work good un-amped, solid but not overwhelming bass

headband to cup swivel connector seems a bit flimsy

Good Cheap Can


These were my first over ear headphone. At the time I went to a retail store and tested the D2000, D5000 and the D1100. Due to price considerations I went away with the D1100. Build Quality The headphone in terms of worksmanship is commensurate with...

A good start


Pretty much all has been said already. Excellent value, very good bass, mids and highs are a little laid back. Really comfortable. Perfect first pair of headphones for anyone looking to get a better musical experience from an iPod.

Bass quality, quantity. Comfort, sound for the price

Fixed cable, balance
