Denon AH-D7200 reference headphones announced

Denon AH-D7200

Denon announced their new flagship headphones, the all-new Denon AH-D7200. These new high-end reference headphones feature an over-ear, closed-back design combined with walnut wood earcups, nano-fiber 50 mm drivers and Japanese synthetic leather earpads. The price tag sits at 999$, which firmly positions them in the higher tier.

The design reminds me of the AH-A100, but it seems even more refined and classy, mostly thanks to the walnut wood. While the earpads are made of synthetic leather, the headband is made out of real sheepskin leather –  The Denon AH-D7200 has detachable cables and it features a floating jack design that eliminates the microphonics (the noise originating from the cable hitting things).

The diaphragm is made of nano-fiber with a technology Denon calls FreeEdge. It offers high rigidity, low mass and self-damping – characteristics which help reduce resonance and improve sound. The voice coil is made of aluminium coated in copper, coupled with neodymium magnets. The frequency response is 5 – 55,000 Hz and impedance is rated at 25Ω.

Denon spent considerable time in designing the AH-D7200 to be comfortable. The headphones only weigh 385g, which should allow for long listening sessions.

The Denon AH-D7200 will be available starting January 2017 in selected markets.
