A good upgrade option, but we'd go for the £20 cheaper DTX 80s
Open and clear presentation
extremely detailed sound
excellent sense of rhythm and dynamics
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.
It's a close-run thing, but that tiny advantage, plus the £20 saving, would see us spend our money on the cheaper pair.
