Over-ear zebrawood headphones
Our take on the Denon AH-D5200 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Attractive headphones with organic, detailed sound
Denon makes some of our most popular A/V receivers, but man do they know headphones, too. Just sink your ears into the plush blended-leather padding of the Denon AH-D5200 headphones. These premium headphones sport earcups made of real zebrawood — an exotic tonewood used to build high-end acoustic guitars. It lends the AH-D5200 a naturally warm, musical sound.
You'll find Denon's "FreeEdge" drivers under the hood — a shining example of Japanese headphones engineering. Large dynamic drivers are suspended within a baffle system that lowers resonance. The drivers deliver healthy mids, smooth highs, and tight, potent bass.
