Our take on the Denon AH-D7100 Music Maniac Artisan by Crutchfield's David Brown
The natural warmth of real wood delivers true audiophile sound
Even as headphones develop more and more features, sound quality remains the top priority for music lovers. Fortunately, Denon hasn't forgotten the audiophiles out there. The AH-D7100 delivers uncompromised sonic bliss through a transparent presentation that lets every detail of your music shine through in a comfortable, over-the-ear headphone.
Precision-tuned to a flat EQ, the AH-D7100 features hand-carved mahogany earcups to give your music natural warmth, free from the coloration that most headphones introduce. Denon's 50mm proprietary Free Edge Nano Fiber drivers are designed to make your headphones sound more like high-end speakers. The result is a neutral presentation that gives each instrument stunning clarity and depth, projecting them across a wide soundstage to let you hear every nuance of the performance.
Connect with your music
Audiophile headphones depend on high-quality connections to deliver pristine sound. The AH-D7100 ensures that the rich detail of your music doesn't get lost in the wires. The included 10-foot cable is designed to plug into your reference stereo system for musical enjoyment at home. But understanding the increasing mobility of music, Denon has also included a 55-inch cable with in-line remote and microphone for use with an iPod® or iPhone®. It may seem like heresy to use such high-quality headphones to answer a phone call, but it can be done.
Real wood doesn't mean a lack of comfort with these headphones. The mahogany earcups are separated from your ears by Denon's soft, leather-covered memory foam ear pads. These pentagon-shaped earpads are designed to conform to the shape of your ear. Along with the adjustable leather-covered headband, they provide a relaxed, comfortable fit for hours of listening.
The Denon Audio app
While designed for home systems, the AH-D7100 headphones sound great with mobile music players as well. When listening to your Apple® or Android device, take advantage of the free Denon Audio app. This app features built-in graphic EQ, allowing you to tweak the sound of your headphones for different styles of music. Denon Audio also offers seamless music library integration and access to TuneIn® Radio's thousands of worldwide radio station streams for endless musical possibilities.
From the review Denon AH-D7100 Music Maniac Artisan stereo headphones: Low fatigue, high satisfaction
"In addition to being sweetly cushiony on the head, these headphones give a balanced music presentation that's comprehensive and compelling without requiring hefty volume levels. As a person who likes his music listening in big chunks, I've found the Denon AH-D7100s deliver low-fatigue, high-satisfaction sessions with no discomfort. Can't ask for much more than that."
Woody Sherman, Crutchfield Home A/V Writer
Amazing sound. I tried the Grado GS1000i headphones, and just didnt seem to have the power and richness of these. The fit and quality is all there. I am hearing sounds I never heard before. Pricey, but well worth it.

In-line Remote/Microphone: The integrated 3-button remote and microphone, found on the left side cable, gives you control of your iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The volume can be raised or lowered incrementally with the two outer buttons. While listening to music, you can control playback by pressing the center button for play/pause, next track, previous track, fast forward, and fast reverse. Phone controls include answer/end a call, switch to an incoming or on-hold call, put a call on hold, or decline a call.
