A quiet personal sanctuary to enjoy your favorite music can make for some really memorable journeys and unharried, refreshed arrival at your destination. The DENON AH-NC800 noise-canceling headphones were engineered to do precisely that with good sound quality, terrific long-term wearing comfort, and about the best noise-cancelling function possible in a full-size headphone. Turn on the 'active' battery-powered isolation button on the AH-NC800 and listen as the plane roar and screaming kid two rows away fades into a distant blip. The plush earcup cushions provide ample room for big-eared owners to get a good fit and solid seal with excellent noise-blocking ability thanks to the complete earlobe coverage. The NC800's earcup design -- about the largest in the category -- also allows for big 42mm audio drivers to be employed, which capably present clear, un-boomy low bass topped with slightly recessed mids (as typical for most NC cans), along with well-rendered, non-edgy uppermost highs. The AH-NC800's dual noise-cancelling feedback loops operate in both 'Feed-forward' and 'Feed-back' topologies for the maximum level of quietness possible and eliminate up to 99% of ambient noise from the world around you. Proprietary DENON advancements like the unique Compressed Audio Restorer feature works to improve the fidelity of your portable player in tandem with the NC800's 'active' powered design and robust driver arrays. A wonderful choice for watching laptop movies or plugging into the airline audio system with superb results and highly recommended for the frequent traveler, regular commuter or audio buff wanting a "listening room" experience in noise-cancelling headphones.
The DENON AH-NC800 is available in a swift dark gun-metal grey color. The glove-soft leather earpad cushions are circumaural ("around the ear") construction and will fully surround the ears on most wearers. The cord will easily detach from the headphones, nice for just getting some shut-eye with the noise-cancelling features engaged. Two different lengths of audio cord are provided by DENON in the packaging, along with a host of varied DENON plug adapters, allowing for easy connection to any audio source(s) of your choice. Battery life from one AAA alkaline is about 40 hrs of listening time, give or take. The whole portable shebang is finished off with a flip-open travel case which contains all your sundry AH-NC800 essentials and accessories ready for quick access. The standard 1-year manufacturer's warranty is serviced exclusively through DENON-USA located in Mahwah, New Jersey.
