We’ve long held Denon’s audio products in high regard, as a quick look at the last six of its products we’ve reviewed reveals. Spanning everything from earphones to TV soundbars, all have scored either 8/10 or 9/10, which is an enviable record by anyone’s account. As you can see from the score at the top, though, with these AH-NC732 headphones, Denon has had a bit of a wobble.


Aimed at travellers and particularly regular flyers, the Denon AH-NC732s are of the supraaural (on-ear) type, rather than the traditional circumaural (over-ear) design, which enables the earcups to be smaller and lighter than typical high-end headphones. They also fold flat for easy storage and come with a tough yet compact carrying case that when closed measures a relatively portable 200 x 150 x 40mm.

Of course, all of these attempts at portability pale in comparison to how unobtrusive a set of earphones (or canalphones, if you prefer) can be. However, if you’re not a fan of sticking things in your ears then these Denon’s are the next best thing.

On the outside of the case is a net for storing sundry accessories and the inside is home to two further removable pockets in which spare cables and adapters can be stored. Two cables come in the box with one measuring 70cm, making it ideal for use with jogging armbands or if you keep your Portable Media Player (PMP) in your coat pocket, while the other is 150cm, which is long enough to reach down to trouser pockets or round to backpacks. We particularly like the fact the cables are completely removable, making stowing everything away quick and easy.


Also in the box you’ll find a stereo 3.5mm jack to twin mono 3.5mm jack adapter (which is a common audio interface used on planes) and a 3.5mm stereo jack to 6mm stereo jack converter as well. So you should be set for most connectivity eventualities straight out of the box.

As you’d expect, considering their price, the build quality of the phones is exemplary with ultra-soft, leather-bound earpiece and headband cushions and sturdy but lightweight hinges and headband. The case is also well made with a quality look and feel both inside and out.
