One of the biggest headphone "advancements" recently has been the increased number of quality products now available at very reasonable pricepoints. The DENON AH-C260R stereo in-ear headset offers the kind of sound and iPod / iPhone telecommunication features features for under $50 bucks that used to cost two to three times the price just a few years ago. For headset sound quality buffs tightening down on the budget, these will be a significant improvement over what you can expect from the earbuds typically included with most devices. Standardized Apple 3-button control allows manipulation of your music and easy call management. The 260R microphone offers clear intelligibility for your voice while the comfortable in-ear stereo earphones deliver excellent musical fidelity at this price. The unique DENON 'Acoustic Optimizer' frequency enhancement allows for extra-clear reception of your incoming phone calls and also sounds quite nice with vocals and lower-to-middle bitrate MP3 files and iTunes music.
Includes proprietary DENON eartip sleeves in XS/S/M /L sizes. Try them all for best fit and isolation -- and for best sound quality performance. The DENON in-ear fit design is not overly deep into the ear canal, making them easy to wear even for in-ear newcomers or sensitive earlobes. Plus the cool black-on-grey chrome looks sure don't hurt any. The strong 1-year manufacturer's product warranty is completely free with an authorized DENON dealer purchases -- like here at HeadRoom!

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Very comfortable, crisp clean sound.
Cons: Not as loud as i expected...
So, i bought these for every/office use, and Koss KSC75 for jogging.
The Koss seemed about the same, if not louder than these Denon 260R.
Especially given the Koss are clip-on, and only $20.
For jogging, I actually dont want it too loud, so I can hear horns and such. I'd say the Koss sound just as good as the Denons as well!
I'm going to return the Denon's for something else with higher sensitivity, and see if that helps.
