Denon make the very best headphones with a price that reflects the quality. The AHD340 headphones are stylish and have the highest quality sound of all headphones I've used in recent years. This set cost £130 and I made the purchase after much research and also based on my own findings of previous Denon models.
The 1.5 metre lead is good for use with an large external music device such as a computer or stereo system, the lead is a bit heavy for an iPod but the connector works so there's no reason why you can't use it with that much smaller device.
Quality of sound can't be faulted with all audio functions fully available including intricate changes in volume and fading for true stereo sound.
The headphones are cushioned and sit against each ear in a comfortable way, I can easily forget I have them on and before now have got up and walked away before coming to the end of my headphone leash and being jerked back in cartoon style.
The build quality is beyond compare and any movement of the headphones in use or while being transported results in a solid movement and no wobble. While they're on my ears I find the headphones offer a sharp sound with the comfort you can only achieve with quality headphones over the £100 price bracket.
I can't rate these headphones highly enough, they feel top of the range to use and give the best sound quality with all ranges and tones being distributed well between the two headphones. Music sounds clear and realistic while retaining any raw or novelty edge added by the artist.
