Denon AH-D600

Denon recently launched 11 new headphones into the Australian market in four "lifestyle categories". The Urban Raver is targeted at a younger audience; the Globe Cruiser range has noise-cancellation and travel features; the Exercise Freaks are wireless and sweat-proof; and the Music Maniac series is designed for a more traditional audiophile. The AH-D600 headphones that we have on test are in the Music Maniacs category — the AH-D600sits in the middle of the range, in terms of pricing and features, between the "ultra-premium" AH-D7100 and the in-ear AH-C400.

The over-ear design is really quite comfortable, using memory foam with a patented pentagonal shape to the ear-cup design that has it sitting over the whole ear, as opposed to on it. The 50mm drivers pump out solid sound, while the EQ is tuned flat to fit a broader range of music styles.

Bass and treble are emphasised in the D600's, and we found that they sounded particular good with electronica and pop, along with anything requiring a solid bass, including contemporary rock. Other music styles sound fine, but don't get quite the same amount of depth from the cans.
