Denon’s Zany New Headphones

Just gotta love that name! Denon’s new AH-C120 and AH-C50 comprise part of its Music Maniac series and are the first Denon headphones designed to work with Android as well as Apple devices.

The Music Maniac range is big on getting good sound from a compact and elegant design.

Most affordable is the AH-C50 which 9 mm dynamic drivers set in a nicely crafted moulded ABS housing. Part of the package includes has a non-tangle cable and an in-line 1-button remote for easy control of select Android and Apple devices and other smartphones. An integrated microphone allows you to gabble away on your mobile and access voice recognition operations. Denon AH-C50 in-ear headphones are designed to be small and extremely portable. Regardless of the individual ear canal size, Denon says these headphones will fit securely and comfortably, providing a good seal. Four different sizes of silicon ear tips (XS, S, M, and L) are provided in the box, so owners can choose the size that feels the most comfortable for an enjoyable listening experience.

The higher-end AH-C120 feature 11.5 mm drivers that are a set in an Aluminum-ABS Hybrid Material Housing and comes with an oxygen-free, non-tangle cable. In addition to silicon ear tips (S, M, L), it also comes with a pair of Comply Foam TX-400M ear tips for highest possible individual fit and a compact carry case is also included for extreme portability. When designing the range, Denon paid attention to feedback from audio enthusiasts who experience unwanted noise with many headphones, generated by the cable rubbing or bumping against their chest.  To solve this issue, Denon’s specially designed Radial Cascade Damper system reduces cable-transmitted vibration noise, enabling you to enjoy studio-quality music on the go.

All Denon Music Maniac in-ear headphones are professionally tuned to a Flat EQ to deliver an acoustically transparent music experience. There is also a dedicated Denon Audio smartphone App for Android and iOS to further enhance the listening experience.
