Feb 07, 2017

Kleinburg, Ontario February 7th, 2017 – Denon®, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment products, has refined the art of music on the move with its new AH-C160W Wireless In-Ear Sports Headphones. Whether working out, commuting or just enjoying music on the go, the new model offers improved wearability, durability – and better sound. They are expected to be available in February for $199 in black, blue and white.

AH-C160W: tough enough for the most strenuous exercise – and wireless, too


Sports headphones can inspire users to get a better workout, or make activities like a commute more tolerable with the combination of a design built for comfort, durability and superb sound. With the added convenience of a wire-free Bluetooth® connection to a phone or personal player, the AH-C160W gives users the freedom to move with their music, anywhere they go.

The sound of the AH-C160W has been tuned using all of Denon’s 5O+ years of experience in headphone design and makes use of sophisticated digital signal processing to make the music sound great. Meanwhile, the combination of Bluetooth wireless connectivity, simple controls, and Clear Voice Capture noise reduction makes it easy to receive phone calls, even in the noisiest environments.

The AH-C160W even has simple multilingual voice prompts to simplify set-up and use, even reporting on battery level to ensure users can keep on listening.

Denon’s unique earhook technology ensures the headphones stay in place, even during the most strenuous workout. A choice of three ring sizes, four silicon tip sizes and Comply™ memory foam technology lets the user achieve the perfect fit for their ears, keeping out external noise and optimizing the sound of music played.

And the AH-C160W is designed to withstand hard use: the Comply ear-tips are treated with SweatGuard to keep the product clean, and the mechanical structure is built tough, so the headphones will play as hard as users do. Even the internal electronics are treated with Nanofics® protection, making them resistant to moisture, including sweat – up to the international IPX5/7 standard.

Denon even enhanced the Bluetooth connection to ensure users never lose touch with the music: the AH-C160W features high-power Bluetooth Class 1, which offers more signal strength to increase connectivity.

Great-sounding, built to survive and with high-power Bluetooth connectivity, Denon AH-C160W Wireless Sports Headphones are the ideal companion for an active lifestyle.
