With any set of Denon headphones you know there is quality in the build. Denon technology has claimed to reduce up to 99% of outside noise. The sound quality is excellent with luxurious padding for guaranteed hours of comfortable listening.
‘Its advantage is the tiny, featherlight control unit but you’ll need a mains connection to recharge. Sensibly they also work normally if noise cancelling is off.’

Tuesday 2nd November saw the event that was the 2011 Stuff Awards. These prestigious awards mark excellence in the technology and gadget industry and the night was not without excitement or surprise. What certainly wasn’t a surprise were the fantastic wins for the products below.
What Stuff said: ‘The dinky Play:3 may not have room for skipping CDs, tangling tapes or crackling vinyl, but it is a consummate streamer of digital music, a conduit for internet radio and a server-upper of Spotify, Napster, Deezer and more. It can also link with its Sonos brethren to form a multiroom setup, pair with another Play:3 for stereo output and pump out room-filling sound of the highest quality.’
The SoundMagic E10s are the second most popular selling headphones at Advanced MP3 Players and the most popular at our sister site Advanced Headphones. For good reason too – the in-ear headphones reproduce sound with an astute quality that is akin to that of far higher priced models.
The QSB speakers are examples of quality being squashed into one very small location. The square models sit neatly atop your workstation proving excellent sonic company by blasting out clean and clear notes. They don’t busy your desk or impose with superfluous cables and an awkward shape but blend nicely into any desktop aesthetic.
With large 53mm drivers these headphones know how to bring you serious sound. That would be a massive 1700mWatts of pure power to each ear cup. Denon have managed to bring incredible volume to these headphones and the DN-HP1000s boast a flawless delivery. Expect zero distortion when bringing high fidelity to your listening experience.
Not only does Denon set the sonic bar for all other headphones but it recognises the necessity for functionality and comfort in quality headphones. These headphones have a swivel function at the ear cup to increase flexibility and decreases risk of breakage through use specifically by DJs.
The headband is generously padded as are the ear cups and will conform to all head sizes. It also folds up for ease of transportation.
To top it all off, the headphones are pretty stylish too. They incorporate real stainless steel that when coupled with the black create a neat yet stylish finish.
The awards see the very best of technology battle it out in several categories. This year the Denon Coel went head to head with the likes of the iPad 2 and Microsoft Xbox Kinect.
Despite narrowly missing out on being shortlisted, the guys over at T3 have nothing but praise for the streamer: ‘The CEOL is a great sounding music system for the price. […] CD playback has a grace that is immediately appealing, while high resolution FLAC files sound fabulous. The balance is perfect for pop, rock and dance; it’s like listening to ice cream.’ Read full review here.
The Ceol comes brimming with state of the art technology. Its sleek white design indicates the kind of sophistication that lies beneath its stylish outer shell.
Firstly, despite its iPod/iPhone compatibility sticker, a familiar vision on most speaker docking stations, the options to listen to what you want and how you want are endless.
Through connecting via WiFi or Lan network, you can listen to almost anything you want to via access to an online music platform. Spend hours trawling through all the available Internet Radio stations to find the perfect one for you. Alternatively, plug in a USB and play already stored music.
Not willing to exclude any classic music sources, the Ceol boasts a capacity to play CDs flawlessly – with FM/AM radio to boot!
