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!!

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.

Style Name: AHC260RColour Name: Black Verified Purchase
They are good value earphones, but honestly despite previously being fairly expensive in comparison to the current price, they do feel quite cheapy.

They produce a fairly decent sound, which I guess is one of the most important factors. The remote is a nice addition too, but it is quite large, and placed in a fairly inconvenient position, it should be higher up on one of the earphone cords instead of where they join together. Another minor design I found quite strange, is that when you have the earphones in, the remote actually faces towards your body.

The remote allows me to pause and play on Android (the mic works too) and obviously has full functionality on Apple devices.

Overall, despite the negative comments, I am impressed with what I have received for the value. If you have a low budget I would definitely recommend these.

Absolutely awful, they spent too much money on the packaging and carrying case when they should have spent it on the product.

Sound quality, yes they sound pretty decent but lack bass. They are fine for listening at home in a quiet environment but they definitely need a lot more bass for if you're out and about/commuting to and from work.

Build quality, cheap and nasty. Poundland headphones are of comparable build. The cable is plastic and thin, actual earphones had plastic mold marks that hadn't been sanded off and the chrome on plastic is just tacky. Many ear tips are supplied but none fit my ears and they were VERY thin.

I bought these thinking they would be a small upgrade from my £15 RHA MA150's but they are no where near as good in any way.

I wouldn't recommend buying these earphones.

I don't usually do reviews but I really struggled to find some decent headphones for around the £20-£30 area and to find out if they worked with my iPhone. I have an iPhone 3GS, which I've had since it came out and use it for running as it tracks my route via GPS etc...

I had some Sennheiser PMX 80 Rugged Stereo Neckband Headphones for Sports which were great but they died randomly.
The sound was very good although the neck band got in the way if you're wearing a hoody in the rain and I snapped an ear piece while opening it out to fit over my fat head.

A friend suggested in ear type, which I liked.
So I got some JBuds Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Ear Buds Headphone for iPod (Black) - Retail which I thought would be ideal for running as they are cheap enough to replace if they break. They fit well and sounded ok, good enough for running. (They were £4.95 but have gone up a lot)

After working in a sound related company for years I knew Denon were quality equipment and respected in the music industry. So I decided to get something that sounded good. So I went for the Denon AH-C260 Inner Ear Stereo Headphones - Silver, which sounded fantastic and fit in my ears really well.
BUT they didn't work with my IPhone 3GS. It seem like the 3.5mm jack isn't 3.5mm. I also tried them in my girlfriend's iPod with the same result.
The sound was wishy washy and lacked clarity and stereo.
