The blurb:
Manufacturer's Description
Acoustic Luxury with the AH-C260 features technologies for high-quality sound that are used in all of Denon’s headphones, including the Acoustic Optimizer that achieves superior acoustic effects, Hybrid Housing made of a combination of different materials to absorb vibration, and the Radial Cascade Damper to suppress noise transmitted through the cable. The result is a beautifully clear sound that rivals the quality of high-end models. For optimum wearing comfort, the AH-C260 is ergonomically shaped to fit snugly into your ears and reduce stress, allowing you to enjoy the music care-free.
The Denon AH-C260 headphones have a Radial Cascade Damper that reduces cable transmitted vibration noise. An Acoustic Optimiser achieves optimum acoustic characteristics by adjusting the sound pressure balance in front of and behind the diaphragm. The AH-C260 has cables of equal length for left and right channels, to maximise sound quality (1.3 m OFC cable).

The AH-C260 headphones have a branch point adjustment function with slider, to take up slack in cables between the branch point and ear pieces. With a gold-plated stereo mini-jack the Denon AC-260 headphones includes convenient cable holder to store the cable while on the go and XS size earpieces that fit comfortably in extra-small ears.

Maybe a silly question but are these any good?

Don't seem to be many reviews out there, mainly user reviews which are generally positive. One stayed they are worth the 30 notes he paid for them. So think I'm gonna give them a whirl for 14

I have a pair of these, I paid £18.76 from amazon last year some time. they're good headphones for the price, not the perfect fit, but good sound.

go to head fi and read reviews.

head-fi.org/f/3…ums

Generally speaking the best ones that are cheap are monoprice and phillips.

Philips SHE9700/00 In-Ear Headphones are £11.99 on amazon

Monoprice Enhanced Bass Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Earphones

The monoprice have a lot of microphonics on the corded versions (silver and black) better off with the rubber versions (white).

They cost less than £5 and have amazing reviews on head fi.

If you ever want to know about IEM and headphones go to head fi and get reading.

I own Monoprice IEM's and Sennheiser IEM's and the monoprice are better.

I also own Panasonic HTF 600, Sennheiser HD 595, Sennheiser HD 25-1 II and Phillips Fidelio X1's.

I personally wouldn't touch any other IEM apart from monoprices or the philips I have linked to for IEM's tbh they are that good.

For Headphones Beyerdynamic, AKG and Phillips are the best value for money brands in the mid-high end market otherwise creative aurvana live or panasonic htf 600 are good in the budget sector.

another one worth looking at are the koss range the Koss Porta Pro or the Koss KSC75 for really good cheap headphone hybrids

For £13.99 you'll be hard pressed to find any better earphones. Not worth their RRP (39.99) though.

Being better than sennheiser isn't as big a task as it used to be, they sell absolute rubbish until you get into the big money... and even then you're better off buying Shure or Denon.

absolute rubbish? lol

My HD 595's cost less than £75 and are amazing gaming can's would be hard pushed to find anything in that price which is better apart from AD700's which have absolutely zero bass.

Sennheiser is overpriced as you point out but they ain't rubbish, the best way to buy sennheisers is cheap and second hand, some people got HD600's iirc for £100 when play.com did a firesale a few years back.

I would love to see someone get a better pair of headphones for cheaper, they certainly aren't rubbish that's why many people still buy them at £300 today.

I'm talking about this (sub £25) pricerange, and it might just be me on this but the idea of second hand earphones and headphones is gross.

I must say, this is a bit expensive for an unknown brand. A real audiophile who knows what they're talking about, like me, would get a Sony.

how so?

I take it you own a brand new car and a brand new house?

it's no different.

ear pads and plugs can be replaced with new ones, they can also be cleaned using baby wipes, cotton buds, etc.

tbh you have to be pretty ignorant to ignore second hand bargains.

obviously some things though it would be disgusting but not things with replaceable parts or parts which are easily cleaned

A car and a house can be professionally cleaned at very reasonable costs compared to that of buying new, earphones (if there are even cleaning services for them out there) cannot. You cannot properly clean them without disassembling them anyway (I took apart a 3 month old pair of sony earphones that stopped working, I used them 2 or 3 times a week, the grime that you don't see from the outside is ridiculous.)

I'm not ignorant, I get that second hand stuff can be cheap... but is the saving worth no warranty and not knowing how the previous owner used it? It sure as hell isn't to me, I'll front the extra few quid.

IMO The only things worth buying second hand (from decent retailers) are console games, DVDs, Blu Rays and books, because the biggest difference between used and new is maybe a dent on a case or a fold in a page...

Just got back from Florida and bought some bose in ears whilst I was there, why do I never stop looking at headphones lol

HD202s are unbelievably good for an entry level headphone. HD201s aren't too bad either.

I have a pair of these, and for some reason they never fit quite right into my ear. For this price range I would recommend the Soundmagic PL11.

Denon, unknown? hahaha


Hahaha. Has to be taking the pee pee with that one!

Do these work for an iPhone 5? Do they answer phone calls, skip tracks, adjust volume on the phone's music?

Thanks

the important thing for me was the in-line remote for the gym

Hardly think Denon is an unknown brand in the Hi-Fi industry!

Can't seem to find info on whether or not this has a microphone built in. Sounds like it doesn't from what I can read. Can anyone confirm?

Yes i can confirm that it does have a built in microphone. Ordered mine yesterday and received it today and have to say it is excellent value for the price. Comes with a lovely hard case too.

Yes to all the above

Headphones. They are in ear headphones. iPod quality is ****. Headphones don't make any difference. Denon is a good brand so will last. Sound quality is irrelevant in terms of algorithms

i got mine for £3.50 delivered off flubit, that price includes the IEM's and delivery.

I dare someone to find a better IEM even for £10 delivered.

The are comparable to E10's IMO but cost 10% of the price.

anyones actually turned up yet?
