What Hi-Fi? Verdict

A good upgrade option, but we'd go for the £20 cheaper DTX 80s

Pros

  • + Open and clear presentation
  • + extremely detailed sound
  • + excellent sense of rhythm and dynamics

Cons

  • - Slight loss of pace

Want the excellent DTX80s with an extra wadge of bass? Well then, the DTX 100s are probably for you: but you need to bear in mind that with that extra low-end extension comes a small loss in overall pace and, for us at any rate, excitement.

Don't mistake our meaning: the 100s are still rhythmic, open and detailed, and they are significantly weightier and fuller-sounding, but it nevertheless has to be said that the 80s have a smidge of extra sass and attitude.
