though the headphones are comfortable and provide a nice sound insulation and the build is pretty good for the price.
Let's get to business, shall we?
These will not set the world on fire with audio quality, but for $40, I would be amazed if they did. Out of the box, they sounds very well rounded, if a little flat. However their range is very good and they can capture highs and lows very well. I do not want to understate this point - there are headphones that will cut out or distort female voices and high itched instruments - these Denon headphones preserve them very nicely. This range is important, because if a can cannot produce a sound, no amount of trying will massage it to change its mind. If a sound is there, however, you can choose to amplify or weaken its presence. The well rounded, consistent coverage of the noise from bass to treble simply means that you are starting from 0 - not countering a sound profile that you hate (e.g. trying to turn bass heavy headphones into ones suitable for classical music).
Given the flatness of the basic out-of-the-box sound, the second point is important: These headphones respond very well to equalizer adjustment. I know speakers and headphones that immediately tell you that what you are sending them is "fake" - passed through processing. These Denons are not those kids of headphones.Read more ›
