without worrying about getting tangled up in a dangling cable. If you are unable to use the wireless connection or the
rechargeable battery is exhausted, the supplied audio cable lets you continue to
listen to your music. The headphones feature dual integrated microphones located
in each earcup for clear phone conversations. The headphones also include aptX and AAC decoding for CD
quality audio over the Bluetooth wireless connection.
Active Noise Canceling: The AH-NCW500's Noise Canceling
circuitry subtly eliminates annoying sounds, such as the constant drone of a
plane engine or the noise of the train on the tracks. You will still be able to
hear emergency announcements or converse with other passengers. The Active Noise
Canceling can be turned on or off by a toggle switch on the bottom of the left earcup.
Controls: The AH-NCW500s are equipped with Denon's
patent-pending Control Wheel for controlling your phone calls and wireless music

rotated to the left or right. Music playback is controlled by pressing the
center of the Control Wheel a specific number of times for each function. The
controls are compatible with Apple iPhone and iPad, and other Bluetooth devices.
Note: The Control Wheel operates only for Bluetooth
operation. The Bluetooth function turns off when you connect a device using
the supplied audio cable.

dual-axis earcups and adjustable padded headband provide for a perfect fit.
