Overview

Our take on the Denon AH-C300 Urban Raver™

Powerful bass doesn't have to come from a bulky, on-ear headphone. With Denon's AH-C300 Urban Raver in-ears, those big beats and deep lows won't get left behind. Toss those stock earbuds and let the AH-C300 give your favorite hip-hop, rap, techno and dance tracks the low-end frequency response they need to come alive. Each earpiece features two parallel 11mm drivers to deliver jaw-dropping bass in a form-fitting headphone you can bring anywhere. A wide assortment of ear tips and stabilizers let you mix and match to find a comfortable fit that will seal in sound while blocking external noise.

Features

Drivers: The AH-C300 Urban Raver in-ear headphones feature Denon's patent-pending Double Air Compression Driver technology. Each earpiece feature two 11mm drivers mounted in parallel to give you excellent bass response, crystal clear sound, and improved SPL.

Compatibility: The headphones feature integrated Apple-compatible controls and microphone on the right earpiece. These can control music operation on compatible Apple devices and conduct phone calls or perform voice recognition activities. The AH-C300s are compatible with iPod nano (4th gen or later), iPod classic (120GB/160GB), iPod touch (2nd gen or later), iPod shuffle (3rd gen or later), iPhone (3GS, 4, and 4S), and iPad. Audio is supported by all iPod models, as well as virtually any device with a 3.5mm minijack output.

Mini Control Wheel: Denon's patent-pending Mini Control Wheel gives you control of your iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The volume can be raised or lowered incrementally with a twist of the wheel. While listening to music, you can control playback by pressing the center of the wheel for play/pause, next track, previous track, fast forward, and fast reverse. Phone controls include answer/end a call, switch to an incoming or on-hold call, put a call on hold, or decline a call.

Headphone Cable: The headphones have a 55" double-coated cable with a 3.5mm miniplug terminal. The clear, low-friction outer coating helps keep the cable from getting tangled. A 3.5mm-to-1/4" adapter is included for listening to home components with a full-sized headphone output.

Comfortable Fit: The AH-C300 Urban Raver headphones are designed for comfort and fit. After studying over 4000 pairs of ears, Denon's engineers designed the earpieces to account for subtle differences in ear placement, ear canal size, head size, and jaw depression. The headphones come with multiple pairs of ear tips so you can choose the pair that gives you the best fit and performance: 4 pairs of silicon ear tips (XS, S, M, L), 3 pairs of double solid silicon ear tips (S, M, L), and a pair Comply Foam ear tips. For an even more secure fit, the headphones include 3 pairs of ear stabilizers (S, M, L), designed to fit snugly inside the bowl of your ear.

Included Accessories: In addition to the ear tips, the headphones come with a zippered, embossed protein leather case with a detachable carabiner so you can hook the case onto a belt loop, a purse strap, or a backpack.

Denon Club App: The Denon Club Smartphone Application for iPhone, iPad, or Android is designed to enhance your listening experience. It includes a real-time spectrum analyzer, and allows you to use any of 10 EQ presets, or create, store, and share your own custom EQ curves. The app gives you access to song lyrics, and create and store custom playlists. With the TuneIn Internet Radio service, you can listen to any of over 50,000 internet radio stations.

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

Great bass

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 9/6/2012 11:21:00 AM

Denon did not chose the name Urban Raver lightly. It's actually a pretty accurate name for what you can expect from these headphones. The Ravers really deliver the bass. Not only did it hit, but it also seemed to resonate in my ears, especially on R&B tracks. The high end is pretty crispy, (which is a plus for modern rock and rap mixes). The overall sound was clean and clear. The AH-C300 definitely color the sound to favor the bass, but if bass is what you crave that's good news.
