Control your iPod® and iPhone® on the go
The AH-C560R headphones from Denon let you enjoy crisp, accurate sound with the music and videos stored on your iPod or iPhone. A tiny remote built into the headphone cord lets you control either device — move forward and back in your music tracks and adjust volume. If you're an iPhone user, you can even take incoming calls without having to remove the earbuds, thanks to the tiny microphone built into the remote.

Comfortable fit, crystal clear sound
Every ear is different, so Denon provides four ear tips of various sizes. You'll enjoy a fit that feels good and maintains a tight seal for better sound.

Exclusive Denon technologies deliver top-notch audio performance, too. The hybrid metal earbud housings suppress resonance for better, more true-to-life sound. Denon also included their Acoustic Optimizer design for improved dynamics, bass response, and overall tonal balance.

  • Sound Quality

We bought these earbuds for my son's b-day and they sounded so good that we bought a second pair for our daughter's b-day. Shortly after, my son's pair came apart at the ear piece plastic connection. Still under warranty we sent them back for another pair. Early this year both my son's and daughter's came apart at the same area. Thanks to the helpful Crutchfield staff we were able to exchange them for another set. Crutchfield has been great, earbuds not so. Denon has always been a reliable name but I would be leery buying their products again do to the poor quality construction.

Pros: nice sound

Cons: poor construction
