    Design & Features

    The Denon AH-C260 uses a wide array of technologies that supposedly give it excellent sound quality such as the Acoustic Optimizer, Hybrid Housing and a Radial Cascade Damper. The Acoustic Optimizer is supposed to give it superior acoustic effects, whereas the Hybrid Housing which is made of a combination of different materials helps it to absorb vibration. Lastly the Radial Cascade Damper suppresses noise transmitted through the cable.

    In my opinion these are the most comfortable earphones I have ever used. The silicone ear pieces are very comfortable and easy to insert. I have also had no problem with them falling out and I'm pretty sure they would stay comfortable over a long period of time too. Denon say they are ergonomically designed to fit snugly into your ears and I have to agree with that statement. The silicone piece that came with it fit my ears perfectly and there are an additional 3 silicone ear pieces to make a total of 4 which range from (XS/S/M/L), so anyone should be able to get a perfect fit with these.

    I think the design is very good and the whole thing appears to be made of plastic but it has a kind of premium feel to it. These do not look or feel cheap which is a good thing considering they don't cost anywhere near high end earphones and they are fairly light as well.

    Got a pair of these cut-price (£11) and even at that it's nowhere near worth it. There is pretty much no bass at all in these. Usually I use over-ear Sennheiser PX100 headphones for portable music and compared to them these were like a dandelion fighting a rock. I tried a more even comparison, without the disadvantage of physics and price (rrp the PX100 are £15 or so more - allowing for a generation gap seeing as my pair are around 6-8 years old)and compared them to the FREE earbuds which came with my old Samsung mobile phone and even those knocked spots off the Denons. Another reviewer above wrote "tinny" and that's what these are, no weight, horribly unnatural and uncomfortably trebley.

    These sound like those old single hard plastic earphones from the 70s you sometimes find in old peoples' houses. Terrible.

    ps - in case it helps someone, and at the risk of sounding like a snob (no one likes being told that their stereo is rubbish, even if it's a £20 wind-up affair made from bakelite) at home I listen through a Roksan Kandy Mk III amp and KEF Q5 speakers. It may be that if you listen to music through a small iPod dock or cheap computer speakers you might be less particular than myself, if however you're like me and enjoy the benefits of more refined playback equipment then avoid these earphones.

    After a little research online, i decided to buy these Denon AH-C260 inner ear headphones and got them from store for a price similar to amazon.
    I was pleased with the design, they look good and dont feel at all flimsy, the rubber ear bit things are very soft and comfortable, though perhaps they need to be angled right to get the best sound. The headphone jack is also angled, which seems to make it better lasting than other headphones', it doesnt get in the way when using my ipod touch too.
    After a while of use the whole thing still feels good as new.
    Im no expert, but i love my music and the quality of sound from these noise cancelling earphones is pleasing. Overall a brilliant investment and I would recommend them to anyone!

    Massively disappointed with these headphones... Denon used to be a name you could trust but that impression has now been ruined. They are comfortable but there is absolutely no bass... I've tried every silicone style and frankly it makes no difference... I have a pair of £3 Samsung Headphones that came with my Galaxy 3S that make these headphones see ridiculously over-priced... The final nail was that they started giving me a headache after 20 minutes as the sound is so shrill... Please avoid... Buy something else instead...

    Verified Purchase
    Denon AHC260 In Ear Headphones are not the best headphones available for this price. I was expecting something better then that from such a big lable. DENON for me meant something more than now.
    I checked this product on few different MP3 players (Creative Zen Mozaic, Creative Zen Style 100 and Philips GoGear Vibe 8GB.)
    and on 2 different laptops (Toshiba and Lenovo).
    MP3 players were showing better quality of sound. Not much difference between all 3 different models.
    Laptops, well... maybe sound cards are very primitive and simple but I have noticed big difference between MP3 players and laptops.
    These headphones are not that different from Sennheiser CX 300. I would even say that German headphones I had they last for more than 3 years, now we'll see what about Japanese ones.
    Headphones died after 16 months.
    One year later price went down by half from 29.99 to 14.99 ... why ... well, now I know why.

    Bad, very bad!!!
