Manufacturer's Description

Acoustic Luxury with the AH-C260 features technologies for high-quality sound that are used in all of Denon’s headphones, including the Acoustic Optimizer that achieves superior acoustic effects, Hybrid Housing made of a combination of different materials to absorb vibration, and the Radial Cascade Damper to suppress noise transmitted through the cable. The result is a beautifully clear sound that rivals the quality of high-end models. For optimum wearing comfort, the AH-C260 is ergonomically shaped to fit snugly into your ears and reduce stress, allowing you to enjoy the music care-free.

The Denon AH-C260 headphones have a Radial Cascade Damper that reduces cable transmitted vibration noise. An Acoustic Optimiser achieves optimum acoustic characteristics by adjusting the sound pressure balance in front of and behind the diaphragm. The AH-C260 has cables of equal length for left and right channels, to maximise sound quality (1.3 m OFC cable).

The AH-C260 headphones have a branch point adjustment function with slider, to take up slack in cables between the branch point and ear pieces. With a gold-plated stereo mini-jack the Denon AC-260 headphones includes convenient cable holder to store the cable while on the go and XS size earpieces that fit comfortably in extra-small ears.

Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling.

I had just returned some Apple in ear headphones as they were the worse headphones ever (like listening to my iPad with a cup and string). Been a great fan of Denon stereos and other headphones and so thought I give these a try as they were much cheaper than other earphones on the high street. Best purchase this year. They look cool and understated.Fit snugly and give an excellent faithful sound reproduction. The controller is fine you get used to pressing the skip button fast to get to the next track - took me a few attempts to master this. Other than that these are the best ones I have ever had and for under £40 g8!!

Style Name: AHC260RColour Name: Black
I don't think you can get much better for £15. They have good sound quality to, they have decent bass, treble and volume compared to other more expensive ones that I have tried recently. The sound has it's limitations though, if you push them too loud they will start to distort, but you have to push them quite far for this to happen!
I have had a set of these for the last 2 years now, and they are still working but starting to come apart where the wire connects into the earpieces.
So I decided to look for some new ones, and I can safely say that these sound better than a lot of the more expensive ones out there.
Compared to 'Monster iBeats' and 'Soundmagic E10'(about £30 each), I would rather have these, they cost half as much and sound just as good.
Also they sound a little louder, you don't need them on full blast, as with the others you do. Especially in noisy areas like the gym, these just have the right balance of volume vs sound quality, without just focusing on bass, of which there is plenty anyway!
The noise cancellation is also good, but this is always dependant on the ear tips fitting properly. Always use foam ear tips, buy them separately if necessary as they enhance the fit and noise cancellation.
So if your on a budget, get a set of these, the remote is also very handy and doesn't get in the way like some others do, as its not dangling from your ear tugging on the left earpiece as you jog, it's situated at the 'Y' junction where the 2 earpiece wires meet the main wire. This not only saves on weight as the remote is also the junction, but it is in easy reach for changing track, volume etc.

Style Name: AHC260SColour Name: Silver
Since 2003, I have had numerous sets of Sony Fontopia MDR-EX71SLW head phones in black and white) ("Sony 71s") to which I use whilst in the gym, out running and generally day to day. On average the Sony 71s had a lifespan of about 18 months - and given the relatively hard use I made of them I have found this to be a reasonable return for my (circa) £20. The Sony 71s have now been discontinued and replaced by the Sony MDR-EX300SLB (only available in black), (Sony MDR-EX300SLB In-Ear Headphones with 13.5mm Driver Unit). I wanted in-ear headphones in white so decided to have a look around to see what else was on Amazon - I looked at the Sennheiser CX 300 II, (Sennheiser CX 300 II Precision Noise Isolating Ear-canal Phones - Black), but opted for the Denon AH-C260s due to certain noise feedback issues raised in the Sennheiser reviews on Amazon. I also have a Denon hi-fi and generally have been very impressed by the build quality and performance of the Denon brand.

I use these headphones with my Iphone 3gS, Ipod touch and Ipod shuffle. I would recommend the Denon AH-C260s to anyone serious about getting the best sound, for a very reasonable price, out of their MP3 players. There is no comparison to the Apple standard headphones, (Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic - Headset ( ear-bud )) (which are abysmal with their tinny sound and no bass). The sound from the Denon AH-C260s is clear, crisp with a deep bass and powerful treble.

Denon AH-C260R In-ear Headphones

I use headphones to listen to spoken word podcasts and some music on an iPhone 4S mainly while walking my dog and contending with traffic noise so anyone wanting an audiophile point of view, please look elsewhere.

There is so much to like about these:
A lovely package containing 4 sizes of ear pieces, cable clip and a good quality hard case.
Noise cancelling, with the right size ear pieces is fine.
Sound quality is absolutely fine for my purposes, though a little more bass/less treble would be my ideal.
The jack-plug is right-angled.
The ear prices are also slightly angled which, for me, makes them very neat and easy to identify L/R.
The cable is symmetrical, fairly sturdy and its smooth plastic does not produce much noise.
The Apple-compatible remote has many functions that I'm sure I'll get used to and does seem to work as described.

The only flaw in the design that I could mention is that the remote is located below the cable split rather than on one of the branches as is usually the case. This puts the microphone housed in the remote a long way from my mouth - level with my solar plexus, in fact. BUT it does seem to work ok down there, at least in quiet surroundings, so perhaps even that criticism is unjust. And one can always hold it up or use the clip.

The money I've wasted and number of headphones I have bought and discarded or broken will remain a secret between me and Amazon but I am so pleased with these that I have ordered a second pair straight away. Is there any higher praise?
