Our take on the Denon AH-D7100 Music Maniac™ Artisan

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.

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.

Denon AH-D7100 Music Maniac earcups

Wooden earcups deliver natural acoustic warmth.

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.

Product Research


Real Mahogany Wood: The Denon AH-D7100 Music Maniac Artisan over-ear headphones feature real, hand-carved African Mahogany Wood ear cups to deliver superior sound quality. They are professionally tuned like a fine musical instrument by Denon's studio acoustic engineers to be acoustically pure, and to bring out minute details of your music.

Drivers: The headphones feature 50mm Free Edge Nano Fiber drivers, which provide the performance of a box speaker from a headphone. They are tuned to a flat EQ for excellent performance for all types of music.

Dual Headphone Cables: The headphones come with two cables--one for home use and one with an in-line remote for portable use. The 10' long, ultra-flexible home cable features 99.99999% oxygen-free copper (OFC) conductors with a fabric-covered jacket and a gold-plated 1/4" plug. The 55" portable cable has an in-line remote/microphone, optimized for use with your iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

Compatibility: The 3-button in-line remote features integrated Apple-compatible controls and a microphone. These can control music operation on compatible Apple devices and conduct phone calls or perform voice recognition activities. The AH-D7100s are compatible with iPod nano (4th gen or later), iPod classic (120GB/160GB), iPod touch (2nd gen or later), iPod shuffle (3rd gen and later), iPhone (3GS, 4, and 4S), and iPad. Audio is supported by all iPod models, as well as virtually any device with a 3.5mm minijack output.

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.

Comfortable Fit: The AH-D7100 Music Maniac Artisan headphones are designed for comfort and fit. Denon's patent-pending Pentagonally-shaped Memory Foam Ear Pads provide superior comfort. The ball-and-socket ear cup design provides 360-degree articulation, while the adjustable padded headband gives you a perfect, custom fit.

Included Accessories: To show off your Music Mania Artisan headphones, an attractive display stand with a clear base is included. The headphones also come with a carrying case with a carabiner which allows you to clip the headphones to a backpack or purse strap.

Denon Club App: The Denon Club Smartphone Application for iPhone, iPad, or Android is designed to enhance your listening experience. It includes a real-time spectrum analyzer, and allows you to use any of 10 EQ presets, or create, store, and share your own custom EQ curves. The app gives you access to song lyrics, and create and store custom playlists. With the TuneIn Internet Radio service, you can listen to any of over 50,000 internet radio stations.
