First Denon Earphones

Longtime home stereo maker Denon today said it would branch out into portable audio, dramatically expanding from its single DJ-oriented HP1000 to a total of six models aimed at portable media players and home listening alike. The AH-C350K ($50, pictured) and AH-C700K ($200) are both geared towards portable audio and share an Acoustic Optimizer technique for bass enhancement on the low-power drivers; the C700K improves over its basic equivalent by replacing the plastic shell with a longer aluminum casing that helps better reproduce sound, according to the company. The two earbud sets will ship February 10th in black or white for the C350K, and black or silver for the premium C700K.

Three headphones are also expected. The AH-D1000 ($150) bridges the divide between portable and studio-style headphones with a lighter, smaller design; in contrast, the larger AH-D2000 ($350) and AH-D5000 ($700) are meant to replace dedicated speakers. The D5000 in particular uses a mahogany wooden shell that improves the overall sound, Denon claims. Each of the D-series headphones has a microfiber diaphragm that cuts down on distortion. The firm will ship all three at the same time as the earbuds and is accepting pre-orders today through Amazon. [via Crave]
