Product Description

Product Description

Noise Cancelling Ensures Immersive Listening
Background noise can interfere with a music listening experience. Thankfully, the Denon AH-NC800 over-ear headphones have been specially engineered to actively eliminate nearly 99% of ambient noise. Two integrated microphones are used to measure noise levels from both inside and outside the ear cup housing. Using these measurements, a cancelling signal is generated, effectively muting any interfering noise. You'll be able to listen to your music in complete isolation.
Proprietary Sound Technologies Provide Superb Playback
With their smooth highs and extended lows, the AH-NC800 headphones play back your music with startling detail, definition and dynamics. The speakers are engineered using Denon's Acoustic Optimiser system, which equalises air pressure on both sides of the 42-millimeter speaker diaphragm to deliver a balanced, natural sound. The drivers are housed in non-resonant earcups crafted of a Hybrid Metal material, which helps absorb unwanted vibrations allowing you to hear extreme detail and definition. The headphones also feature Denon's Compressed Audio Restorer, a proprietary circuit designed to infuse compressed music tracks with detail and dynamics while extending frequency response.
Precise Engineering for an Optimal Listening Experience
The AH-NC800 headphones have been specially engineered to create an optimal listening environment for you. The earpads match a wide range of head sizes, and leave virtually no gap between the head and the ergonomically designed band. This helps seal off your ear from the outside world, further blocking ambient noises. The audio amplifier circuit has also been optimised to suppress unwanted electrical noise, ensuring maximum clarity.
Comfortable, Lightweight Design
Weighing only 180 grams, the AH-NC800 headphones are ultra-lightweight. This ensures a comfortable listening experience--even after hours of wearing them. With 11 different adjustment steps, the headband has been designed to accommodate a range of head sizes. Comfortable 3D-contoured earpieces feature supple protein leather covers atop soft foam cushions. This alleviates pressure and prevents listening fatigue during long listening sessions. The headphones are also fully collapsible, so you can fold them up and take them anywhere.

  • Inflight (Dual) plug adaptor x 1
  • Detachable cable (0.7 m x 1, 1.5 m x 1)

    1.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Sound Horrible Design 28 Mar 2013
    By Bandi

    This product is horrible!!! AVOID!!!
    I bought my one 1.5 years ago. I love it because of it sound but hate it because of it's design. I am using it only in my office, never dropped it down or anything.
    It is broken and cracked everywhere because of the regular usage. It has 12 cracks, The plastic is super week! For the last 3 month only the super-glue hold the item together, but now it is beyond fixing.
    The headphone is built up from parts, but they dont replace individual parts apart from the ear buds.
    I am super disappointed! I was thinking to get Bose or Aiaiai, but went for Denon because of the sound quality. It was a bad decision.

    I am gonna write an complaint to Denon.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Pure audio perfection 17 Oct 2010
    After travelling to the US with a pair of Senheisser PXC 250 II and being very pleased with their performance, I was somewhat disinterested in listening to other noise cancelling headphones.

    However in NYC,I audtioned a pair of these at J&R and I was knocked out by them - so I travelled home with two pairs of headphones! On a 7 hour flight, the Denons were an absolute delight - very comfortable, absolutely NO background noise from the plane and a wonderful noise reproduction from my MP3 player and the in-flight movie soundtrack too.

    There are not many purchases that have had me smiling so radiantly! A superb product that is well engineered and looks built to last.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Denon Phones 25 Jun 2011
    Two trips to Toronto, the Denon phones were great, used with my Ipod, for music and audio books. Case design, with folding phones, was very convenient and handy to carry in my back pack, and can hold several spare batteries for long flights. Only needed to change Duracell batterie once in two trips. Comfortable and slept for some time wearing the phones.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but poor build quality 5 Jan 2013
    By LI
    I got a pair of these about 3 months ago and fully burnt by now. The best thing about this pair of headphone is the sound quality. It's very well balanced, you can even use it for monitoring. The detail is impressive, even better than some mid-range monitoring headphones. I tried bose qc15 from a friend of mine, and I can faithfully say the sound is much much better than the bose!However, the noise cancelling only works for a narrow range of frequency(about 100Hz to 300Hz I guess). Maybe the noise cancelling will work fine on plane, but to be honest they do a poor job on everyday life.

    I bought these headphones just under 2 years ago. They worked as expected but after about a year the plastic started to fatigue. This is because the ear pieces have to be opened slightly wider than your head to get them on and the plastic compound used is too brittle to cope with this type of flexing. They have now completely broken. For the cost of the headphones I would have expected them to last longer. Denon provides a 2 year warranty, but you have to buy the product from an authorised dealer to get this warranty. This dealer is not authorised.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Headphones 13 Mar 2012
    +They fit over my ears very nicely and with the quality of the sound you do not notice the surrounding noise.
    - After a time they feel tight on my ears.
    All in all very good
