Budget headphones from a high budget manufacturer
Member Name: Seven17
Advantages: Good sound
Disadvantages: Bad bass, and connections are weak.
I have been aware of Denon as a hi-end market brand before but never bought anything because it was all too expensive, but when I saw these headphones, I thought they must have been cheap knock offs at this price! (£30 at the time) and I can definitely see high end audio quality in some headphones of this budget.
The audio quality when listening to music is just superb, everything sounds just just right and all the instrumental volumes are equal, vocals stand out and even older music from 40 years ago still sounds just as good as music from today. Except for large bass thuds which sound slightly off, there is less of a vibration than you'd expect.
I plug these headphones into my computer at home because we don't have speakers, and playing call of duty with the bullet sounds and reloads really has a certain something to it, like the sound has been upgraded just by the headphones. With the exception of tanks, I think at lower bass volumes the sound struggles and it decreases in quality, but since I don't listen to heavy bass filled music, this does not bother me. I would not recommend these to any dance fan though. For me, they are absolutely top quality.
The only bad thing with these headphones in terms of build quality is the cables and connections to the headphones, which have become weakened over time, and are now very flimsy at both ends. Sometimes the connection to the PC can cause crackling when you nudge the connector at the end, it's as if the headphones loose connection to the PC whilst being plugged in.
Overall the sound quality is more than what I'd expect for this price range but really, the build quality is what I'd expect from lower budget headphones, and I am disappointed, so I don't think I can award 5 stars, this coupled with the lack of oomph in bass is not what I'd expect but to be fair, I'm surprised they made headphones at this price, so kudos to them.
Summary: I'm glad I bought these, but I wish they were better built
