4.0 out of 5 stars Great looking portable headphones! 9 Dec 2012
By TotallydubbedHD TOP 500 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Silver
I have had the Denon AH-NCW500's for just over a month now, and thought to review it, there are a few things I would like to pick up on, and thus will divide this review in a few sections, to make it easier for people to read:

Packaging, and accessories:
I really love the packaging, and the case provided with the NCW500's - it really denotes a lot of style and professionalism.
The carrying case itself, looks like a tablet sized bag, which in turn is very much portable, and easy to carry about.
The accessories that are provided are what one would expect from a set of portable headphones too.

Build quality:
The build quality of these headphones is very good, they are built to last, and do not feel flimsy. I feel as they can take quite a bit of battering, this is especially the case with the reinforced headband assembly, where there's an extra metal piece holding the headphones stronger together

Clamp:
The clamp on ones head is very nice, it isn't too loose like their brothers the Denon AH-D2000's, however isn't too tight like the Beats by Dre. It really is perfect long hours of listening, and even jogging. I don't feel like they will fall off my head whilst I'm jogging.

Comfort:
These are comfortable headphones, as far as comfort goes for on-ear headphones. I feel that the clamp, the soft pads on the headband and drivers, make this headphone comfortable to wear.

Connectivity:
With its Bluetooth APT-X technology, it means I can portably listen to my music, even as far as being over 15m away from my Samsung Galaxy S III. Which is quite remarkable. I love the connectivity speed too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever 22 Aug 2013
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
I have tried several headphones with noise cancelling, and these are the abosolutely best. The battery last for 10 hours, and this is not a joke. The sound is increadible good with a very good bass.

The ergonomic in the ear pads are great, they fit on the ear very nice, and it is comfortable to wear even for a long time.

Controlling of my Iphone is great, it works very smart and is easy to use - and great feature with the buildin microphone for calls.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too bass heavy 29 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
I am disappointed with the music balance on these considering the high price. They are very bass heavy for my taste ( recently recorded mainstream jazz). This makes vocals muddy. They are comfortable to use and pair easily with my iPhone but have have made a couple of unintentional phone calls

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality headphones 28 Feb 2013
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
I have been coming back to here every other week to decide whether to bit the bullet and purchase a set of these, as I was looking for a replacement of my current long haul noise cancelling headphones. Denon have certainly not let me down. I don’t do a lot of long haul travel but, when I do it is a real long haul from London to the other side of the world. At first I was surprised at the packaging, they really have thought about the customer experience with these, and a very simple but handy zipped leather carry case. The leather on-ear pads are very comfortable, although got a little sweaty after having them on for hours, but would expect this from any real leather regardless. Sound quality, Denon have really stuck to their heritage of sound, and these are no exception. Pairing to my iPhone and iPads via Bluetooth whilst abroad – yes people YOU ARE allowed to use Bluetooth on an airplane, just make sure your device is in flight mode and you will be fine. One of the best things about these headphones is all the integrated features, USB charge (I was able to charge the HP before landing in the seatback) volume, microphone, answer call button because if you are anything like me when you travel long haul you don’t want to be messing around with your phone whilst trying to keep all your bags in control, all the features allowing me to make the call to the family totally hands-free and wireless. Worthwhile investment if you can relate to anything I have mentioned

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fit and very comfortable! 25 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
These headphones are great for relaxing at home or on a flight as they have brilliant noise cancellation and are very comfortable. I had a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 3 which were very loose fitting and didn't sit on my ears very well. These Denon headphones are the complete opposite, the headband is secure and comfortable, even when jogging!

5.0 out of 5 stars Denon Headphones - Great Purchase! 13 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
These are one of the more different sets of headphones I have purchased. Was looking for something that was going to last me awhile, especially since I travel the globe at least once a month.
Pros:
• Comfortable – Leather ear pads certainly help
• Sound quality
• Well made
• Noise cancelling
• Features – volume control on the headphone
• Wire free (listening and calling)
• Still works when the battery runs out (cable comes in the box)
• Rechargeable battery (no need to carry spares)
Cons:
• Not much, other than size – maybe not for the short haul traveller

All in all, a great pair of travelling headphones for both normal and noise cancelling listening. Pleased to say the least!

Been looking for a good set of wireless headphones for a while, and these fit the bill. Good sound, easy to use, good battery life.
Downside - I got to use my old headphones again because my wife prefers these!
