A strong sonic perfomer specially geared for iPod Touch and Apple iPhone, the DENON AH-C560R totally ups the sound quality over most lower priced stereo headsets. As typical for DENON earphones, the sound of the 560R stereo headset remains warm-toned and smooth with no trace of edgy sibilance to the highs. The handy Apple 3-button control on the cord allows easy manipulation of your music and full call management. The AH-C560R microphone offers clear intelligibility for your voice while the comfortable in-ear stereo earphones deliver excellent musical fidelity a clear cut above many stereo headsets we've gotten our ears on near this pricepoint. The unique DENON midrange frequency enhancement engineered for extra-clear reception of your incoming phone calls also sounds quite nice with vocals and lower-to-mid bitrate MP3 files and iTunes music. But even with content-rich, demanding Lossless digital files, the sound remains resonant and undistorted, so we think these are well worth the upgrade if great-sounding music is one of your big driving factors.
Includes four pairs of proprietary DENON eartip sleeves in XS/S/M /L sizes. Try them all for best in-ear fit and isolation -- and for the best sound quality performance. The DENON AH-C560R in-ear fit design is not overly deep into the ear canal, making them easy to wear even for in-ear newcomers. Plus the modern black cosmetics with nifty grey chrome flashing sure don't hurt the looks any.

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Sound, right angle cord
Cons: no controls, thin cord
Initially I was looking at the bose MIE7s, these and the etymotics. I went with these because I was afraid the bose wouldnt stay in my ears and I was a little afraid the etymotics would be bothersome so I stayed with the denons.
The sound is great, very crisp, highs, mids and bass are all very prominent. I listen to a wide variety of music, jazz electronic, rock, rap etc, everything sounds the way it should, for their small size its quite surprising how large their sound is.
Their size is sweet too, they are very small, and the fit is great, I can lay on my ear and the earbud isn't bothering my at all. The cord is very thin, so I am a little afraid about its durability, but the added right angle cord is something that I was looking for when I was shopping around and its small enough that its not obtrusive in my laptop which inconveniently has the jack on the front, or in my pants front pocket where I keep my phone.
All in all for 85$ shipping included this is well worth it.

Pros: Insulation, sound quality
The insulation with the foam earpieces is wonderful.
The mic and control unit is much lighter than expected - this is a real bonus as the one drawback of the 360s is the weight of the cord.

Pros: Sound quality
Cons: Durability, cable noise, remote control location
However the cable broke from the connector after 8 months of really careful use. Never once did I pull the cable by accident.
Also the remote control is too far down (especially bad when talking on the phone), the cable does create noise because it's too rigid, and finally it comes off the instant you start sweating, so forget it for the gym.
