What customers say about "Key Specs"
Denon AH-D7200 Headphone
  • They are very nice lush sounding headphone which captures nuance and details in music which many won't highlight.
  • These sound lovely, deep and expansive slightly lacking in the treble but such a nice sound compared to other more neutral headphones.
  • Excellent sound. I much prefer their sound to that of my Z1Rs.
  • The perfection of sound, for music and movies. Highly recommend.
  • For me their balance wasn't open enough and for want of a better word sound dull and too rolled off in the high treble.
Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature HiFi Over Ear Headphones
  • Sound quality is superb, detail retrieval are as good as other headphones in my collection.
  • These are very expensive headphones, but you get what you pay for, build quality is very high and premium materials are used.
  • Sound is actually very very nice and fun. If you are an audiophile who really enjoys flat and neutral sounds then this product is not for you.
  • Bass is very good punchy hard and solid but not overwhelming to the point it masks over the other details.
  • The revealing, open and smooth sound. Quite an airy treble for closed headphones.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Denon AH-D7200 Headphone
  • They are big and heavy. But the cohesion of voice and instruments is really at the very top, so I can ignore their weight.
  • They weigh almost 400g. For the sound, they produce, I think they lighter than it cold be.
  • This is some big headphones, but it's easy to sit with them for all day.
  • Headband is a bit hard on the crown of the head so they are uncomfortable.
  • Headphones with their size are not suitable for everyday mobile use.
Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature HiFi Over Ear Headphones
  • The build quality is superb, weight - not as bad as you'd think bearing mind they weight nearly 1/2 kg, and audio quality is ridiculously good.
  • The ear pads are soft and very light over the side of your head.
  • Weight is ok, evenly distributed on my head.
  • Sound quality is amazing, the building quality is second to none but they are heavy.
  • The build quality comes at the expense of extra weight.

What customers say about "Features"
Denon AH-D7200 Headphone
  • They look incredible so overall i'm more than happy with my purchase.
  • They are very comfortable to wear and provides great suond.
  • With the way these sound and are built I honestly don’t think I’ll be looking for another headphone for a while.
  • Its a fine headphone and probably the best all-rounder closed back I've heard.
  • I can’t imagine that Denon makes money at all, especially when comparing the sound quality of KH and the materials used.
Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature HiFi Over Ear Headphones
  • Great sound with suitable sources; beautiful quality materials and construction.
  • The comfort is okay but not the best. I have a huge head and it just about covers my ear comfortably.
  • The quality of the materials are the best. They exude luxury. Comfort for my ears over several hours of listening. I don’t feel fatigued.
  • Removing the ear cup to change cables is also a bit of a faff.
  • Expensive, sound quality not as expected for the price. Closed construction so ears can get hot.
