Denon AH-C820: Powerful Dual Driver In-Ear Headphones
$199; USA.Denon.com
The range-topping AH-C820 incorporates Denon’s unique Double Air Compression Driver technology for powerful bass and ultimate clarity. It uses two 11.5 drivers, one in front of the other, to move more air and thus deliver powerful, low-distortion bass. This patented design also uses separate wires from the plug to each driver, for ultimate signal purity – another Denon world-first. The drivers are mounted in housings combining die-cast aluminium and resin, designed for rigidity and vibration-damping, while dual Denon Acoustic Optimizer ports to the front and rear of the housing help equalize the air-pressure in front of and behind the drivers. It’s all part of making the sound as dynamic and distortion-free as possible.
