Exercise Freak

Denon Exercise Freak wireless headphones were designed and tested by frequent exercisers to provide optimum comfort and secure fit for a variety of activities. Featuring Bluetooth connectivity, the wireless Exercise Freak headphones provide freedom of movement. The sweatproof in-ear earpieces feature built-in cushions for ventilation and comfort, and antimicrobial silicon eartips (available in XS, S, M, L) to reduce bacteria buildup. The rechargeable battery lasts up to seven hours—long enough for a marathon. And let’s not forget the best-in-class sound quality that is the hallmark of all Denon products. Exercise Freak models are tuned to provide a slightly accentuated bass curve for motivating challenging workouts, sports activities and fitness regimens.

The headphone’s special in-ear design features integrated controls and a built-in microphone on the earpiece, so you can play/pause your music, adjust volume, and answer/hang up telephone calls wirelessly via Bluetooth. They are available in blue, black and yellow. Also included with the headphones: a mesh carrying case with a karabiner (durable metal loop for secure connection) and a micro USB cable (for charging battery).

Users can further enhance their workouts by downloading the Denon Sport application, which provides real-time tracking of workout activities and nutrition, and seamless integration with heart-rate monitoring devices. In addition to a GPS tracking feature for outdoor activities, the App includes a workout journal to track fitness goals.
