Summary: OK so this headphone has been a trial for me. I bought with high hopes as I was looking for a AH-D7000 equivalent in in an IEM and in this case a $90 IEM, not a small order!
So the question is did it achieve my goal and is it a worthy $90 contender? To answer my first question I can say it's not my D7000 but it does a VERY good job of coming close and is worth trying for anyone looking for an IEM to match up with their D7000.
Pros: Nice detailed midrange and treble, comfortable, iphone features work well
Cons: bass is good but lack impact/punch, cable is a bit unwieldy
Great sounding in-ear headphone which is let down by its build quality
11 November 2014
Summary: A very good sounding headphone with a minimalistic look. Build Quality (6.5/10): The actual housing of the drivers are built out of very sturdy plastic and the chrome ring looks good from an aesthetic point of view. The strain reliefs on the drivers and the jack are plenty and have a lot of give as well.
Summary: I will keep it short, the 560r are a great piece of headset. They will amaze you right out of the box (hollow years budokan version sounded orgasmic). Bass lovers will be disappointed, but after burn-in they will be better. The highs are crisp, mids are nice. Overall, one of the best headsets in this price range. You could also consider new klipsch rugged earphones, as I previously owned s4i and only problem I had with them was their durability.
Summary: I was looking for a decent replacement for my 7 yr old £29.99 Shure E2C-N's after I dropped my iphone with the Shure's still in my lugs, unfortunately the left earphone stopped working after this, gutted, they were excellent and very hard to comeby now. I purchased these Denon's partly on the brand and partly on the reviews on here.
Summary: As you might expect from Denon these sound good, the canal-phone design means you get good isolation from external sounds so nothing distracts from the music you're listening to. The only thing to highlight is that they're Apple compatible so the buttons etc work on their devices but don't do much of anything on an Android device, play/pause seems to be about it, at least on my HTC Desire HD anyway.
Summary: The main thing for me with headphones is a nice bass response. and sturdiness of the cabling! I've been through 4 pairs of in-ears in the last 2 years, all due to cable breakages around the connector or the drivers...I decided to move away from the brand I was using (UE) and try these..the price was right (actually...seemed a little cheap, but what the heck) and was AMAZED by what I got..
