$100-headphone review: What does a Benjamin get you?
27 February 2014
Excerpt: (6 items) Every type of electronic gadget has pricey, top-of-the-line models that provide phenomenal performance. But most of us have a gadget-shopping sweet spot: We look for the products that make us happy enough that spending more would be a waste. Though many audio fans tout pricey audiophile headphones that cost hundreds of dollars (or more!), the sweet spot for full-size cans has, over the past decade, gotten less and less expensive.
Excerpt: The Denon AH-D510R are over-ear closed headphones with a 3-button remote and mic made to be used with iPhone, iPod and iPad. The D510R are priced at $99.99 and are one of Denon's affordable headphone offerings. It's no surprise that Denon specialize in audio products so my hopes were high for the D510R and that they would without a doubt sound great. Right out of the box? Not so good.
Excerpt: Denon has been around for just over a hundred years now, and as a special thank you to their customers they have launched the 100th Anniversary Collection. It was no secret that these limited editions would be in hot demand, and it’s not hard to see why. A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to be sent two review items, the AH-D510R Over-Ear Headphones and the AH-C560R In-ear Headphones, which will will get to in a separate review
Summary: Today for review I’ve got another Denon product, another set of headphones only this time it’s their AH-D510R Over-Ear Headphones. Normally these aren’t my style, I much prefer in-ear ear buds but regular headphones like these have their place especially for gaming. These headphones though sound amazing, and they have very comfortable ear pads. I think you’ll be impressed with the sound quality surely, I know I am.
Pros: Excellent sound, Foldable for storage, In-line remote, works well, Nice long cable
Cons: Mostly plastic, cheap feeling, No carrying case included
Summary: Hovedtelefonerne fra Denon er ikke de sjoveste i testen rent udseendemæssigt. Derimod føles de gedigne, og komforten er udmærket. At de har en treknaps mikrofon, giver plus i margin, men på den anden side bør man vel også få lidt ekstra med tanke på prissedlen.
