Immersive Sound, Wherever You Are

The Globe Cruiser On-Ear Wireless Headphones are are designed with subtle noise cancellation circuitry that blocks external noise when you travel while allowing you to hear announcements from the flight crew. Featuring a 40-millimeter driver, a built-in amplifier, aptX audio codecs, and AAC decoding, they deliver CD-quality audio over a Bluetooth 3.0 wireless connection. An optional audio cable is included for when Bluetooth wireless listening is not allowed (for example, in flight). Also included is a two-pronged airline adapter, which works with the headphone jack in most airline seats, so you can enjoy the Globe Cruiser's sound quality with the in-flight movie.

Exceptional Portability

Thanks to their Bluetooth 3.0 wireless connectivity and integrated controls and microphones, the Globe Cruiser On-Ear Wireless Headphones facilitate peaceful and productive travel. Denon's patent-pending integrated control wheel and microphone, built into the ear cup, allow you to easily control your iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone wirelessly. Transitions are easy between music, phone calls, and voice-controlled applications.

The headphones fold flat into a case that's about the size of an iPad (case included). The ear pads twist off for easy storage in the case, but you can leave them attached and use the expansion zipper on the case to make it a little thicker. An audio cable is included to allow for a wired connection when you need it.

Bluetooth Connectivity

These headphones offer the wireless convenience of Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to listen to music without worrying about the tangle of a headphone cable. For the best performance, you should avoid keeping your smartphone in your pocket while using your headphones, as Bluetooth connectivity can be weakened when your smartphone's battery is low or when clothing or the human body blocks the signal. Wearing your smartphone in an armband can ensure better reception and make accessing controls easier.

Traveler-Friendly Comfort

The headphones remain comfortable to wear over the long haul. They feature Denon's pentagonally-shaped memory-foam ear pads and an adjustable headband--as well as a two-axis cup design that allows 360-degree articulation.

Long-Lasting Rechargeable Battery

The rechargeable battery lets you listen on the move for 10 hours at a time. If the battery runs out, the headphones still work in passive mode (with the cable connected, and without noise cancellation). A micro USB cable is included with the product for easy charging of the headphones from your computer or USB wall outlet.

Travel App Customizes Equalizer and Tracks Flights

The Denon Travel smartphone application for iPhone or Android devices, available for download from the Apple store or Google Play Store, integrates with the headphones to let you customize your equalizer settings. You can also take advantage of EQ presets using its simple drag-and-drop custom EQ functionality.

The app also lets you track your flight status, manage your itinerary, and provides access to up to 70,000 internet radio stations worldwide.

I've been searching for a pair of Bluetooth headphones for a while now and when I first heard of the Denon Globe Cruiser I was immediate intrigued. Even though I thought the price was a little steep I went ahead and ordered them. Once you take them out of the box you'll instantly see how good looking these headphones really are. They look great with my iPhone and I was impressed with them overall. The Bluetooth works very well except for the noticeable 1-2 second lag the first happens when playing a song or video. But after a minute or two the Bluetooth seems to catch up and it appears to sync very well, which is especially important for watching movies. They feel very very comfortable on my ears but the only complaint I can give about them is that they at times feel a bit too tight on the top of my head. Although this could be because I have a larger sized head than the average person. The noise-cancellation feature is a welcomed addition and I use it regularly while traveling. You can definitely notice the difference in noisy areas such as on the plane. Although, the noise canceling feature doesn't seem to be as impressive as ones I've tested out on Bose devices. I was also very excited to test out the other control buttons on the headphones such as play/pause and the volume control. They work as advertised although I wished they had a separate button for skipping songs instead of pushing the play/pause button twice. I'm also glad they included a microphone for taking phone calls but I've found it to not work as well when using the Bluetooth. Using the cord for the headphones will clearly improve the quality of the audio and when I'm not moving around I tend to use the cord more than the Bluetooth for this very reason.Read more ›

The charging of the battery lasts longer approximately 10 hours. The headphones are very comfortable. Bluetooth connectivity is faster and easier. The quality of the sound is very good. Both Bass and treble are perfect.

I highly Recommend On-Ear Wireless Headphones.

I did over a month of research and listened to all sorts of Bluetooth headphones.I decided to take a chance on these, even if the reviews were mixed.I am soooo happy I did!
These are incredible headphones,they are not made of cheap plastic,but a strong lightweight plastic with metal inside headband.The head and ear cusions are made of this very
supple leather, that fits your head just right.The sound is full range,with a precision bass and beautiful clear highs.I don't have any problems with the midrange,The mids just sit in the saddle between the lower and higher frequencies.I put them to the test with A Decade Of Steely Dan,and you can hear everything,I mean every little symbal,every vocal and harmony,and of course the beautiful bass lines.I highly recommend these headphones,I just love them.Sweet Sweet Sound.

I found these headphones to have great sound, easy connectivity, and reasonable controls. The bass is strong, and the sound over bluetooth is great. They are *big* and a bit heavy.

I have to return them, however. The sound leaks like a $15 pair of headphones. Everyone in the room can hear my music when I wear these. Since they are advertised as "travel" headphones, I thought they would be good for commuting on planes and trains: not possible, without offending everyone near me. Noise cancellation on/off had no effect on the leak.

I bought these headphones out of frustration with sennheiser (which consistently break at the end of two years), but I think I will buy yet another sennheiser pair, since they have no sound leakage. Too bad: I want to keep these for the (better) sound quality!

The title says it all.....I really wanted to like these.

Putting aside the price & the generally ambivalent reviews on this site & elsewhere, I thought these looked like high quality gear.

This was reinforced when they arrived in a beautiful box, similar to Apple's packaging in general. The headphones themselves are gorgeous & feel very solidly constructed.

That said, I'm forced to return these after less than a week of use. There are a number of issues, as follow:

- The weight of these on the head is heavy. Not something I'd want during a headache. They also fit very tightly, although I confess to a large head (7 & 7/8 hat size).
- The instructions are flat out incorrect. They state that one cannot initiate calls from the headphones. One can, which I found by accident.
- Several important buttons (on/off, noise canceling) are very, very small & hard to use. I was kind of shocked by this, given the large size of the headphones. Perhaps over time one could learn to use them, but I literally had to take the headphones off while driving for this reason.
- The noise canceling was modest at best. I expected this in advance, based on other reviews.
- Mid range frequencies (e.g. human voice) were dampened during audio playback, although highs & lows were good. Other reviews also noted this.
- Phone call quality was below average. Specifically, I was continually asked to speak up, much more so than my previous (much cheaper) headphones.
- The straw that broke the back was trouble getting the headphones to reliably work. Several times they would not acquire a signal, despite repeatedly on/off, re-connecting, etc.

On the plus side, these were pretty comfortable (if quite heavy), when they did work the signal did not drop, & pop music sounded pretty good.

But for this price, I consider these a failure of engineering. Too bad, because they are stunning headphones in appearance.
