I compared the Denon AH-D7200s with the Dan Clark Aeon Flow 2 Closed Back and these. The AF2s are admirable in their innovative, lightweight design but are also light on depth of sound quality compared with both Denon models. The 7200s have equivalent build quality but are lacking on the brighter end and a bit muddier on the deeper end. These have a clearer quality across the spectrum. For those who can justify the spend I think you will like what you hear.
Pros: Quality build. Excellent sound across the spectrum.
Cons: Some reviewers say they fit too tight. They work for me. Price is a factor when you can find them in stock.

I recently reviewed the Focal Stellias, comparing the Denons to them. You can see that review on here as well. I have had these for several months now and I have to say that for 1600 bucks, you are getting a great set of headphones that I think could compete with higher priced headphones based on my comparison with the Stellias. These headphones do everything very well. I found their clarity to be impressive and a tad better than the Stellias. Stellias are more detailed but its mainly because of the depth those headphones create which is better than the Denons. The Denons can get a little harsh at high volumes but not overbearing. I listen at high volume a lot and when you give both sets of headphones the beans, the Stellias sound stage opens up wider and deeper cutting the harshness out while the Denons do the same but only about 60% of what the Stellias are capable. I have not listened to other headphones in the Denons price range but I highly doubt you can find a better pair. They are worth every penny which is something I would not say about the Stellias. As with all high end equipment,if you are listening to sub par recorded music, the Denons are very forgiving, where as the Stellias really shine when playing High Res music. If you plan to spend a 1000 bucks, wait til you have 1600, it will be well worth the wait.
Pros: Price for what you get. Clarity.
Cons: None unless you listen at high volumes a lot and then it can be a little harsh on upper mids, lower trebles. A tube amp might resolve but I am no expert.

Comparing these to Audio-Technica w5000, Sony Z1R, Beyerdynamic T5p, Campfire Audio Cascade, McIntoshosh mhm-1 these are the Most engaging closed headphones I have ever heard. The bass is intense yet articulate with a little warmth highs extend throughout the range and mids are smooth with no bleed in from other freq ranges. A really exceptional headphone that is always fun to listen to.

I have a few Denon headphones, and they all have a very consistent, warm sound signature. The D9200 have a warm sound as well, but are in my opinion more analytical than my D2000, D5200, and D600. The build quality is excellent, though I don't see any significant build upgrade compared with the D5200.
