Does exactly what it says on the tin, and then some,
This review is from: Denon AH-W150 Bluetooth Fitness Sports In-Ear Headphones - Black/Silver (Electronics)
After weeks of debating between these and the jaybird freedoms, I took the risk and hoped that the bad reviews I had read online were beaten by my experience of denon quality. So far, these headphones deliver, and deliver with a bass heavy punch.
Firstly, the fit. I had read reviews reporting poor fit, falling off during exercise, loose around the ears. I have experienced none of this, maybe a slight poke from time to time back in the ear, but as much as I am sure denon tried, they cannot make a single product to fit every shaped ear on the planet. After a heavily sweaty session in the gym, these remained firmly in place.
Connection. I read reviews of poor connectivity over Bluetooth. People reporting their iphones having trouble connecting etc... I can safely say that the 25ft range reported by denon works with my Samsung galaxy note. This applies through walls as I left the phone in one room and walked across my house to another. In the gym I could leave my phone on the floor and get on with it, exactly what I want.
My most important bit, the sound quality. I would regard myself as an audiophile I suppose, I am incredibly fussy about sound quality and only the best will do. I have other denon products in the home and know that the usually deliver. The exercise freaks do not fail here. The response is not flat, they are heavy in the bottom end, but the mids and top end come through clear and crisp. The sound is warm and surrounding, detail can be detected I wouldn't expect with mp3 or over Bluetooth. Anyone who is keen on their audio will have a device with equalization, so the sound can be adapted to suit. Denon have released a few android apps recently, one of which is an audio player with DSP. these headphones with that app is where the sound really excels.
All in all an ideal product as far as I am concerned. It delivers in all areas as promised. I am more than pleased with my purchase and just hope they do not disappoint down the line as many have reported
9th Feb 2013 - Alas, my honeymoon period with the exercise freaks has come to its expected end. Mid workout yesterday they just died. They now no longer work. I dont think they can handle the sweat as well as denon claim. Looks like ill be heading towards the jaybirds after all, a real shame as the denons were amazing while they lasted
