Excerpt: These Denon earbuds deliver high quality audio for only $50. But while they sound great, they suffer in the design department. They are slightly more “midrangey,” which is more noticeable when listening to things with lots of acoustic guitars and vocals like Caetano Veloso, Neil Young or Sean Hayes.
Pros: Excellent sound, especially at this price. Wide frequency response — 5-24,000 Hz, beyond the extremes of human hearing. Compact hard-shell carrying case for stashing extra tips and extension cable. Can be worn normally or looped behind the ear.
Cons: Cable is a nuisance. Takes practice to wrestle the buds into position and find a good seal.
Summary: I've tried out several pairs of in-ear phones and never got used to the feel of them. These are much more inviting straight away, as several earpads of different sizes are included. I found my size and was off to the races.
