I hate to admit it because I look stupid ridiculous - air traffic controller, anybody? - in these Denon Urban Raver headphones, but they blow the Fanny Wang 3000 Series out of the water. It doesn't just do bass better than Fanny Wang, but treble, warmth and crispness. In comparison, Fanny's sound is a bit duller, even with bass boost turned on. While both pairs are bulky, I like the shape of Fanny Wang's better with its clean lines and foldability. Taking an opposite approach to Denon, which placed the controls on board its outsized ear cups (something that seems more gimmicky than anything), Fanny emphasizes the wire, even including a sharing port into the cord so friends can listen along with you - a very nice touch. Since I can't have Denon's sound in Fanny's package (yes, I realize what a strange sentence that is to type), Denon wins me over in this round.
